SOURCE: radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work

Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Car won't start

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: air conditioning works when car first starts up

It sounds like your cooling fans are not working.Need to check the cooling fan fuses,and the cooling fan relays.There is also a high side switch mounted somewhere on the high side of the ac system that cuts the fans on,or kicks them up on high speed when the ac system gets to high on the high side of the system.This switch may also cut the compressor off.I would check the fuses and relays for these fans first,this is more likely the problem.Is the car running normal temperature? If not the fans may not be running at all.Have them checked.The fan or fans may be bad them selfs.If I can be any more help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com

2005 Volvo S40 with key stuck in ignition. It turns off but key doesn't come, out of the steering wheel. Please advise needed, if lock change is required estimated cost of part and labour please.


Some ignition system locks will not release the key unless you push in towards the column while turning further off. It is a safety device to stop in advertent removal of the key while moving. Try that first.

Volvo S40 Trip Computer Problem


Could be a software problem if so it needs to be done by volvo dealership. If someone other than a Volvo dealer attempted it and it went wrong - there's a fair chance you could end up with a non-functioning car and a very large bill to get it working again.

Abs ligth an breake turn on, the break fluid is Ok level up, the car is VOLVO S40 2002 1.9 Turbo, the car breake ok. what i do?


Very common problem on Volvo , ABS module is bad.
This is not effecting the brake system , meaning you'll still have normal brake operation , but on slippery road Anti Lock System won't work.
That system prevent wheels to be locked up by driver and prevent car going into spin.

Car won't start, message says steering lock on


Try to turn the key to II-position. Then lock and unlock the doors with the remote. This will 'reprogramme' the key. Sometimes the immmobilizer chip will give the steering lock -code.

Hope this helps.

Radio code for volvo s40


If the display says "Off" the radio is locked from incorrect code input.

You need to leave the key in the accessory position with the radio on (display reads 'Off') for about two hours.
After that it should ask for he code again. You have three tries before it locks again.
Some radios are different, but typically you use the knob to adjust the numbers, push the knob in to move to the next number

Since you were in an accident it could be a safety related issue...such as a steering box fault. Your owners manual has some information in it on the immoblizer.
