Question about Cars & Trucks
My car dose not accelerate in gear 1 and 2 because it is in limp mode .on the dashboard have exhaust particle and service warning lights lit.on the screen it says che.ck ignition.
Sorry if i laugh but its a renault and as such it has to be connected to the internet via a dealers digital signature to diagnose anything constructive as to the cause of the fault ,have had quite a few of these cars throwing up all sorts of faults and its mainly caused by the fly by wire accelerator sensor on the pedal under the dash ,you will need to change the whole unit its not seperate pieces

I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

It may be as simple as your oil condition or oil level. If you have poor oil in your engine the VTEC system will not operate properly and when RPMs reach 2800 or so it will buck. If everything checks okay with the oil have the code checked for your check engine light/VSA light.
