Question about 2005 Volvo S40

1 Answer

My 2000 Volo S40 has a window switch stuck and window will not go up. The window will go down but not up. Every once in a while I get lucky and it will go up. It seems to be a problem with the switc, not the motor in the door.

You can pick up a used switch at a junk yard. To get the window up until then, you can disconnect the wires from the switch. Keep them from touching anything metal. Using a volt meter, determine which wire is hot. Touch that wire to one of the other wires to make the window go up. If it does not go up with the first wire, touch the second wire to the hot wire, and the window should go up. Protect the hot wire from touching anything metal in the door until you can install the new switch.

The driver window will not go up OR down.

If the motor runs as you push the switch and keeps running till you stop the drive in the motor or the regulater has broken. You can try to manully close the window and then push the switch to see if it'll ingage. Opening the door by removing the door panel, work the switch to see what's not working. If you haven't worked on the interanl or car doors before at least get a manul to see the procedure and refer to the pictures as you can break it still further or hurt yourself inside the door.. Auto parts stores online sales catalogs will show you what the parts look like and how much they cost. Many Volvo's aren't covered very well at parts stores and you may have to get replacemnt patys on ebay to get a reasonable price. wreaking yards are spotty as these days they have to crush cars soon after they get them per enviromental laws.

I have a volo s40 16 and it is just turning over .the codes are p0011,p0351,p0362 do you think this could be the camshaft sensor

my first step would be to make sure the timing belt didnt pop or break free, the codes you listed where not for this car unless you are using a generic scan tool the only good code was the po351 which is signal to coil, so if the timimg belt is good then i would check the coils they may be bad. good day.

I have a volvo s40, 2001. The fuel gauge is not working properly, was told it was a bad sending unit, had the fuel pump replaced (it's not possible to just replace the sender) and a software upgrade by the...

This sounds more like a damaged wire shorting out against the frame than a sending unit. My old Volkswagen did the same thing, and with it, the wire from the tank had become corroded with road salt. This may very well be your problem as well, and if so, a simple wire replacement can solve your problem!

How to change indicator bulb on a volvo 2000 s40

The front indicators are held in by a phillips screw which can be seen if you look down from the top of the lamp, it only needs to be loosened a turn, there's a plastic tag as a safety clip which needs to be pressed towards the headlamp at the same time as you pull the indicator lamp forwards. Once the lamp is out the bulb holder twists 1/4 turn to release.
