Volvo v40 will not rev and hesitates when pulling away

A lot of the newer Volvo and Ford cars have Electronic Accelerator / throttle pedals fitted which play up when worn.

Many complete Accelerator pedals are compatible with the Ford Focus cars in the UK.

Does an exact fit used ECU need to be reprogrammed on my 1998 s70 volvo

You can try a Hard Reboot, remove the battery cables from the battery, wait 20 minutes then make contact with the + an - cables together for at least 10 seconds. Normally you would want to run a diagnostic on the new computer if it cam out of another car just to erase the codes from the other car.

1991 Volvo 240 won't shift into 3rd til about 60 mph, 4th at 78 mph, shifts into 2nd at 30 mph. think it's the transmission cable loose, any help.

had this problem myself. it turned out to be a sticky throttle cable from the throttle position sensor to the transmission making the transmission think it was in kick down mode. gave the cable a good dose of WD40 and its worked a treat ever since. and that's about three years to date.

Can I fit electric seats in my 2001 volvo s60 the seats are from a 2005 model, the problem is in the 2001 car there appears to be not enough cable block connectors to fit into the new seat. and is it...

Yes,if the wiring is not the same, you will have to either find different
wire harnesses that fit, or last but least, have someone good with
electric, find the power wire from the old harness, and get it wired into
the new seats to power them up. Good luck.

My 1999 volvo v70 ets light turns on, how can i fix it?

The 99 volvos are notorious for having bad ETS (electronic throttle system). The 1999 was the first the throttle cable was eliminated and the throttle is controlled by wire. You need to replace the throttle control unit and you need to install a custom software that the Volvo VIDA system provides. You have to buy the software and and pay for the software install and the hour for the tech to install it and the replacement of the module.

At first they were making us clean the throttles and installing software but it was useless. They were going bat so much that they had to extend the warranty on them.

This is when ford bought volvo and things started going down hill.
If you love your car, get a 98. I got two.

How do I adjust the idle on my 1993 24 DL Volvo?

Trace the throttle cable from the accelerator pedal to the engine block , it will terminate in a lever

Somewhere on the backside of that lever is a screw which you can screw in to set the idle speed
