Question about 2004 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Volvo s60 2004 - electrical system seems to have shorted out. Uswed the valet key to unlock car. Stuck at first. Now dash instruments and ac comes on for 5 seconds when car is started but then go out. Engine runs fine. Windows, headlights and radio work though. No AC and elec. key buttons don't work. Any ideas. Alarm seems to be turned on. (Light is flashing on the dash.)

Dashllights wont come on and throtle dont work if dash wont come on


These two problems only indicate teh problem is in a module or a short in your vehicle. Have the ECM/PCM scanned/Tested. If that checks out test the ignition switch and check for shorts in your wiring. Since the Dash lights and Throttle are two separate systems and normally do not interact the problem is electrical.

How do we dismantle the alarm system without the remote? We live in an apartment building and the valets in the garage have a key without the remote so they can move the car. Even if we leave the car...


You can buy a new key chain remote on ebay, or go to hyundai dealership, I would not disable security, as one thing electrical goes wrong it can cause other things to not work properly. This car has built in computer system.

How do i disable alarm for my 1996 thunderbird lx 4.6


Ok, try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, press and hold in the valet/overide
button, found under the dash area in most cases,
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area comes on solid.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type.
in this case, key on, flip switch in oposite direction,
key off.)

This should be valet. This overides
the starter kill relay in the alarm harness,
and returns the car back to disarmed mode.

The only thing that will work now on your system,
is the keyless entry if installed.

Just Repeat these steps to rearm your system.

Security system not working as it used to


i read this on the subaru tech bulletin page
i had the same problem - apparently i had inadvertently put the system into "valet" mode
to get back to normal, unlock with remote - open drivers door - hold down the unlock button on your remote for 2-3 sec - the flashing light will go out and your system should be back to normal
it's too bad the manual doesn't supply information about activating and deactivating "valet" mode
good luck

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whenever the ABS warning light comes on, there seems to be some sort of short that causes the rest of the instrument panel to die. No illumination, no gages working. When the ABS...


I had the same problem. Abs light would come on and I would lose all dash instruments. Hit a bump on the road and abs light would go off and dash would come back on. What I did to fix problem, lol I slaped the dash just to the right of instrument panel and it all came back to life. There seems to be a short there, and I slaped it back 3 times in a week and now for the last month it has stayed on.
