Question about 2000 Volvo S80

1 Answer

No mechanics in town to help

I'm in Juneau, Alaska no volvo dealers, no one with access to computer for help. My 2000 Volvo S80 has a lot of lights on in the dash including Check Engine, SBS, Brake Failure, Emission System Check, No oil pressure stop ASAP. We've had the oil checked, the brakes checked and no one can seem to find anything wrong with these things. We had new tires put on it and someone said the tires might have been to big and triggered the lights...just need to know what might be going on here. Also, it now is vibrating when you slow down and the engine sounds rough in an idle. Has endured 3 harsh Alaska winters. If anybody can offer help it would be greatly appreciated.

    I had the same problem. All lights came on at same time. It was a computer problem and they have to replace a module, they called it ABS Computer.

Change your alternator out this is the first indicator of worn alternator or a bad replaced alternator
all warning lights means that alternator is not putting out power and vehicle will run ruff with low power since everything is controled by the power of the alternator
since your in alaska i recomend a new alternator not a replacement refurbished these dont tend to weery the weather very well up there and make sure when you order your alternator that you want to make sure its not a refurbish and that it can take the elements you might need a 16 volt alternator

Emergency fuel door release for 2000 Volvo S80


Copied from Volvo Forums


I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.

best advice here is too take it to a volvo garage and let a dealer fitter have a look who will have all the experiance necessary ,never put a lot of faith into RAC fitters or the AA because most of them are all failed mechanics that do not like dirty hands

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.

2000 Volvo S80 indicator lights & their funct. not wrking


Your CCM (Climate Control Module) is dead, or asleep. Look in the fuse box at the left end of the dashboard and pull the fuse and see if it resets the CCM. The module may need to be reprogrammed or replaced.

My suggestion is that you take this to a Volvo mechanic, one who has experience with working on these 1999- Volvo models. They have a networked computer system that requires special tools to diagnose and download software into the modules.

Also, it is a good idea to have them perform a total software upgrade, it will address many issues, and may prevent other issues from occurring.

Front nose assembly of 2000 Volvo S-80


There was a special cap available from Volvo to address this problem. It replaces the existing cover that accesses the bulb. I can't remember if it applies to the 2000 S80, but I would check with the dealer first before replacing the headlamp assembly.
