Question about 2006 Volvo S40
Bought a 2006 volvo s40 t-5 with 88k on it, the problem is that the powersteering freezes up and the powersteering light comes on and says service needed. took it in and the experts said it was the module might have been loose then they said it needed a softwear update so we did that, then it did the exact same thing, they said it needed the second part upgraded. they said its electrical they even called the volvo hotline. now 1 day after it was picked up its quit again.have sunk over $300 with nothing being fixed. everything else is good. need help
HI. This is not an electrical issue. This is mechanical. The actual power steering gear is malfunctioning, the necessary actions are to have the entire power steering assembly replaced, asap. NOTE_ Kindly inspect for leakages within the hose assembly. Normally, when this occurs, it will indicate seal issues within the pump, or hose connections. I don't understand why your local mechanic is assuming electronic failure at this time. This is certainty a mechanical issue here. Check the fluid level, as well. Low fluid levels can produce the symptoms you are experiencing.
