    The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

It won't detract until you ignore it long enough and the engine immobiliser fails and leaves you stranded.

Do as your car is telling you and get it to a Volvo dealer. Preventing the fault will likely cost less and certainly be less inconvenient and dangerous than having it occur whilst driving.

I have a 2001 volvo s80! The engine system service light is on. what could be the problem?


There are many codes that could trigger the Service Engine light. Have Autozone, etc. pull the code. Without it you won't find out much without manual diagnosis.

Volvo s80. engine warning light comes on and off! just had timing belt thermostat and water pump replaced.


Something has been detected by your engine management computer. The next step is to pull the error codes, with a scanner, and pursue those results.

I was told the air mass meter needed replacing as


the fault needs to be cleared and a short drive to adapt the throttle but if your engine management light was on i used to work for volvo as a technician(master) this is usually caused by the throttle which would honestly need to be done by someone at a dealer or with the equipment to download software to the throttle the throttle needs cleaned and there is a software update from volvo the crankcase vent willneed cleaned allthe way fron the vent box to the intake then you should have an engine flush and use syntheti oil this prevents the same issue with the throttle returning

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


This is a known problem although Volvo will not admit it. The dash needs to come out (10 min job) and sent away for a simple repair. Total cost is about £150 but you will need to get the SRS warning that will be showing in the LED message display cancelled by a Volvo dealer after the dash has come back. Don't try a scrapyard dashboard the ECUs have IP addresses. I used a company in Kent to do the repair. Get onto Google there may be a repairer more local.
