Question about Volvo V70

1 Answer

I have a v70xc awd. The check engine light & the arrow lights are on. No one in the area can read out the trans for codes. You can cancel out the lights, & drive it until it gets warm, & it goes into limp mode & the lights come back on. We have replaced the solenoids, & a used computer, but still the same. We checked the torque conv, & its locking up fine. We need help badly on this. I am a car dealer with my own shop, & sold the car & have to get it fixed or take it back. Nice car, 80,000 miles. Thanks, Stan

Have 2 check engine light on 1with arrow pointing down & regular check engine

the light with the arrow might be a low coolant level check the over flow bottle and the rad coolant level. the other light is for when the PCM detects a problem and sets a code and turns on the light. check for a code in the PCM, it could have come on when the other light came on.

How do you get airbag codes out of 01 kia sportage

You have to read them with a higher quality code reader. The same plug that you check "engine light" codes with will also do ABS, airbags, and many other systems. The basic engine code reader will not do the other systems - just the PCM codes (engine and trans). See if any of the auto part stores, service centers, etc in your area that read codes for free have a machine that will read airbags. But remember that a code must be there for light to be on. If you clear the code and issue is still there (usually bad clock spring in steering wheel) the light will just come back on.

Most part places will have manual's.

Code - P0732 - Gear 2 incorrect ratio.

TCS light comes on

the tcs is ur traction control system this reads the wheels and if one slips cuts down power to engine so as not to damage engine or trans also if awd will activate the other wheels for traction the sensors are usually part of the abs[anti-lock brakes] check connections and wires as well as the sensors at the wheels and transmission -since the light is intermittent which would indicate a short or a sensor is about to fail the vehicle will store the code as pending -have vehicle scanned some auto stores do this for free such as auto zone/ advanced auto check ur local area the code will tell u where the problem is coming from

Check engine light came on and now the shifting is abrupt -- auto trans I checked the fluid and is OK.

You'll need to read the error codes that turned on the check engine light. These do not tell you what is wrong always, but lead you to the area of difficulty. Many auto parts stores will read the codes for you (and sell you parts to "fix")... but be cautious. You can replace a lot of parts and still not fix the problem. I hope it is obvious and easy for you.
