2006 volvo s40 stalls at idle in first gear

My s40 stalls when stopping at a top sign. it seems to lessen with the AC off but still dies regularily. I have several check engine codes that come and go. P0401, C3200, P2601, P0601, P0100 and P0301. I have checked for vacuum leaks using starting fluid but haven't found any yet. Any help is appreciated.

You have lots of codes

Have you not used Google to look them up?

I doubt all the codes are failed system issues

I suggest to anyone coming to this site, to use the
services of a repair shop or buy & learn how to use professional
scan tool software,I fail to see how you can diagnose anything
without it

Testimonial: "I've attempted to look them up but unfortunately the codes are not consistent. After clearing the problem continues but new codes appear. to further confuse the issue google results in inconsistent results. the codes I can identify seem to point to each other and each suggests if mis-diagnosed the other is the likely issue. I'm just trying to avoid replacing a lot of components unnecessarily."

SOURCE: Check Engine light P1670

I have a 2000 Volvo S70 as well with the same code. Do you ever have trouble starting your car? I did and that's why I took it to the dealer. Appartently it's the code for the ignition immobilizer system in your car (part of the security system). Specifically, a part call the antenna ring. The antenna ring is the outer portion of your ignition switch on the steering column - the part that lights up and has the following printed on it: 0 - I - II - III. This part is actually a sensor that transmits the code stored in the microchip inside of your key. When this part goes bad it fails to transmit the correct key code to the computer, and cuts the fuel to the engine.

The dealer wanted to charge me $550 for a new antenna ring, two new keys, and software to program the car's computer with the new key codes. I purchased the antenna ring online for $50 and did it myself in 15 minutes - so easy. They claim that you can't replace the antenna ring without new software - lie! You only need the software if you are replacing the keys.

Car is running great.

I have a 2001 volvo s40. It runsa smoothly most of the 99% of the time but when i come to a stop at a light or stop sign, it stalls out! I hear it could be a ( Idle air controll motor) It starts right back...


Sounds like your ETM - Electronic Throttle Module.

Search for xemodex. He has a direct replacement for 1999-2001 Volvos. I ordered mine from him, and its much better now.

Get a quote from your dealer, then compare the prices.

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights


These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.

VOLVO S40 SE 2001RPM HIGH


YOU MAY HAVE A IDLE SPEED CONTROL VALVE PROBLEM, CLEAN IT FIRST, THEN DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE I HAVE ATTACHED.

Here is the most common cause of this stall and idle speed issues, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
