SOURCE: 2001 volvo s60 t5 - performance reduced warning message, limp mode activated

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!

What does a volvo s80 code reduced engine power mean?


The ETM (electronic throttle module) has been known to cause the "Reduced Engine Performance" code on volvos. However, there are many sensors which could have triggered this problem. If your check engine light is on, have it scanned for free at an autozone for any engine codes which may point to the culprit.

If you have that message, you've got trouble codes stored. Get the trouble codes read. That's ALWAYs the starting point.

This sounds like a problem with the ETM or electronic throttle module. You need to have someone with Volvo experience scan the engine management system for fault codes. Most likely you will have codes for the throttle module. This was a very common problem with 99 and newer cars. Volvo extended the warranty on the modules to 100K on the early ones. Still have issues occasionally with the later ones-just a poor design of the sensors for throttle position in the module.

If anyone knows what is the problem please write me.

Hi
I always use about a pint of auto transmission fluid ! its got better viscosity & takes more temperature!
Shifts usually improve!

2001 volvo s60 t5 - performance reduced warning message, limp mode activated


i have a 2000 s60 2.0t and got the software update due to the recall. it apparently was some kind of safety measure when a fault of some kind occurred but it nearly got someone killed while overtaking and thats why the recall happened. sounds like the same issue but i could be wrong.
