Question about 2007 Volvo S80 V8 Sedan

Open Question

2007 Volvo S80: The drivers side door is closed properly, but dash indicateds the door is open and upon locking - the Alarm won't activate because the sensor says it's not closed. On the VERY rare occasion the Alarm will self activate. This is driving me nuts as its intermittant, sometimes a heavey slam of the door resolves the problem but i dont like doing this. Any suggestions as to a solution will be appreciated. I enjoy doing my own servicing and repairs when practical on all my cars i have ever owned. Now I'm stumped. Thanks

SOURCE: In my 2000 volvo s80, the radio stop working and

Try resetting the electrical system by locking and unlocking the doors with your key in the driver's door 5 times in a row. A service manager at a Volvo dealer showed me this after they did some work on my car and on the way home the sunroof wouldn't close.

I have a 2001 S80 that I have to reset the electrical system like this every time I disconnect the battery. All kinds of stuff stops working...sun roof, door locks, lights, radio, windows, etc. Just reset like described and everything should start working again.

Good luck.

SOURCE: volvo xc90 rear hatch door closed and won't open

Hold the hatch hard closed into its frame whilst pulling on the release handle. The mechanism on most cars consists a grab/release on the door and a simple metal hop at the bottom of the frame. Over time the hoop can become loose and move slightly inwards each time the door is shut. The door seal rubbers push back on the door surround putting a lot of tension against the grab/release mechanism preventing it from releasing. By pressing on the door and compressing the rubber surround you will take the pressure off the release mechanism and allow it to open when you pull on the handle. Once the door hatch is open, loosen the mounting bolts to the metal hoop and move it out about 10mm. Tighten the mounting bolts. Shut the door gently as a trial close and check for security of fit. If very slack, ease the hoop inwards a couple of millimetres. When happy, tighten the mounting bolts securely. draw around the hoop mount with indelible ink so if it moves in future you have early visual warning and can remount it easily

Well i have a 2001 S80 my AC is blowing cool on the passager side and hot on the driver side what can i do to fix it.


You will need to replace the Acuator for the Internal Baffle inside your dash for the Driver's side A/C vent. The Actuator is not opening or closing the baffle to give you hot or cold air.

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.

I replaced the battery in my 2007 volvo s40 2.4i, and the alarm light blinks, but nothing else works. The key isn't working to open the doors and turn off the alarm?


Hello! Tell me Is the hood open or closed? Do you have a spare door key?
If the doors are locked, the hood is closed, your key will not unlock the doors, and neither will your spare...Your going to need a locksmith...

Send a comment with a full description as to what happened and I'll attempt a fix...........Guru...........saailer

2009 right. This needs to go back to the dealer. Everything is computer related. Only a qualified volve tech should look at this. Everything is still covered under warrenty

2001 Volvo S80 New control computer is messing up


I had a problem with my ambient air temperature sensor and the passenger side door lock. I was told that I needed a control module and that my battery was bad. When I replaced the battery, the module reset and everything started working again. Try disconnecting the positive cable from your battery and or having it checked at a local auto parts store.
