You need to look at the temp sending unit it's probably faulty anthor issue with volvo is dirty throttle body's this raises havoc on the car they idle up down all over the map also you should change the thermostat too as a precautionary measure make sure it's the right temp for your year of your car thanx Chris
I had same issues on my 99 S80, turned out to be the spline gears on the end of the CV Axles that send signal to Wheel Speed Sensors. Their is one on each wheel, but the ones that gave me all the issues where only the front two. Problem was had to replace the entire CV Axle to be able to get new spline gear, but was only about $60, so was worth it.
Hm...Today I have come up with the same problem as yours. When I try to start the engine it does not simly light up. So, I would really be glad if you explain me how you have came over that problem. Thanks!
This is not always the problem. Have you changed the fuel filter, checked the relay, and checked the gas cap(This keeps the fuel tank under pressure). try these first, and hopefully this is it. hope this helps
The S stands for "Sport" mode. It turns on the turbo. When this button is pressed, you will have a higher torque; the gears will change at a higher torque also.
The W stands for "Winter" mode. It allows for a slower takeoff during winter/icy conditions. When this button is pressed, the engine will automatically start on second gear preventing slipping and fish-tailing.
Sounds like your dealer is feeling its way. which sensor did they say they changed and why. Do not pay for this ****, you took it to the dealer with a warning light and they say they changed something in order to attempt to cure the warning but they failed. About as much use as changing the seat covers and emptying the ash trays! When you say noise, is this a squeal, a crunch, is it continuous or is it during change gear. Does the car slip when in gear, is there vibration.
Check your engine oil and transmission oil levels
This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.
1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.
