SOURCE: why do the check engine light stay on? volvo 2000 S70

Your engine's computer is seeing data from the engine that it considers out of the normal on your vehicle. Any automotive repair shop will be able to scan the computer for the trouble code for you. Autozone will scan the code for free, however, you will still need to bring the trouble code print-out to a well qualified technician to be able to tell you what the potential problem may be. These codes can indicate anything from a loose gas cap to random misfire in the engine.

Could have many causes, but a good start could be to have the
oxygen sensor voltage output checked.(In exhaust system)
This would explain why mixture/ variable idle speed occurs.

What to do about check engine light? It started to come on today.


well what is the code number for the check engine light?? need to know that first to get started with diagnosis. having a 2000 maxima my self that has 225000 miles on it and it runs like a swiss watch i have seen o2 sensors fail, air flow meters fail, cats fail, ignition coils fail, front exhaust tube failures which is actually a cat also. scan vehicle and get code/s out and post findings. if you dont have a hand held generic scanner that goes for about 70 bucks at autoparts store or even sears sells them, then you can go to your local autoparts store and ask them if they can scan it for you for free. some stores will do that for you. they will only hook it up and give you the codes stored. that is it. then you have to start with diagnosis. get the code number and post findings to start diagnosis.

Orange arrow light on dash board is blinking, the check engine light is on and the SWE is switching between S and W. What could this be?


The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

Gear shift stays stuck in park sometimes for about 10 to 20 minutes.. why is that?


Hard to say without performing a diagnosis, but I have seen the shift lock solenoids fail. Make sure the brake lights are working, the signal used for the brake lights are also used for the shift lock.

Hi... i'm new to the foreign car market...


1st check the #4 fuse (10A) and #10 fuse (7.5A) on the 'under-dash' fuse block.
then #9 fuse (10A) on the 'engine bay' fuse block.

if the fuses are good, the gauge assembly has has "self-diagnostic" feature.

Self-diagnostic Procedure

The gauge assembly has a self-diagnosis function.
. The beeper drive circuit check
. The indicator drive circuit check
. The LCD segments check
. The gauges drive circuit check (speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge)
. The communication line check (the coolant temperature signal line between the gauge and ECM/PCM)


Entering the Self-diagnosis Function:
1. Push and hold the trip/reset button.
2. Turn the lighting switch ON.
3. Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4. Within 5 sec., turn the lighting switch OFF, then ON and OFF again.
5. Within 5 sec., release the trip/reset button, then push and release the button four times repeatedly.

NOTE:
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the dash lights brightness controller operates normally.
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the trip/reset button is used to start the beeper drive circuit test and the gauge drive circuit check.
. lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1.2 mph (2 km/h) or the ignition switch is turned OFF, the self-diagnosis mode ends.

The Beeper Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the beeper sounds five times.

The Indicator Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode. the indicators lights (such as: Seat belt indicator light, Door/hatch indicator light, Brake system light. Charging system light, Low fuel indicator light, maintenance required light) blink.

The LCD Segment Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the odo/trip segment blinks five times.

The Gauge Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the speedometer, the tachometer, the fuel gauge, and the coolant
temperature gauge needles go from the minimum position to maximum position, then return to the minimum position.
NOTE:
After the beeper stops sounding and the gauge needles return to the minimum position, pushing the trip/reset button, starts the beeper drive circuit check {one beep), and the gauge drive circuit check again.
The check cannot be started until the gauge needles return to the minimum position.

The Communication Line Gheck:
In the seif-diagnosis mode, after the odo/trip LCD segments check, the self-diagnosis starts the communication line check.
lf all segments comes on, the communication line is OK.
lf the word" Error" is indicated, there is a malfunction in the communication line between the gauge assembly, the multiplex control unit, and the ECM/PCM,
f4a412b.jpgc169609.jpg
Ending the Self-diagnosis Function:
Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Note: lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1 .2 mph (2 km/h), the self-diagnosis function ends.
-----------------------

If everything works correctly during the check, check your VSS (vehicle speed sensor)
