Question about 2003 Volvo S80

1 Answer

This morning 1 started my volvo s80 2.4 litre year 2003 and drove approximately 1 kilometer. Suddently it stop. There are two (2) massages: "SYSTEM ENGINE SERVICE REQUIRED & SYSTEM ENGINE SERVICE URGENT". I relax for for minute and start the engine again. The engine rpm raised and unstable, but anyhow I put in the auto gear and drive back to my house. How 'm I going to send for servicing because the volvo service center is 90km form my house?

SOURCE: 2001 volvo s60 t5 - performance reduced warning message, limp mode activated

I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

The fuel pump which is located in the fuel tank beneath the back seat has gotten bad. Consider replacing it.

Cheers and rate this solution.

My Chrysler 2003 model consumped up one litre of Petrol per one kilometer high fuel consumption. What can be the cause?.


i doubt very much if it would be running at 1 litre per 1 kilometer
at very rich combustion stops at 10:1 as the fuel puts he fire out
I'm not disputing your figures just I would be looking for a fuel leak from a hose , filter leak or leak in the tank or some one stealing fuel
run the fault codes
check the fuel system from tank to manifold

I bought a used 2003 A4 Convertible Audi 3.0 Feels it burns more gas than expected. Is there anything I can check or do to reduce that. Thanks Sean


to see what you get for mileage, take it to a gas station and fill it till the pump stops and reset your trip meter. Drive it around like you normally would to work or whatever till the tank is almost empty and go fill it up again till the pump stops. Its best to go to the same pump you used before. Once it is full look to see how many gallons or liters you put in(This is how many you used since the last time you filled up). Take the number of miles/kilometers from your trip meter(the number of miles/kilometers you drove since you last filled up) and divide it by the gallons/liters you used and you will get your miles/kilometers per gallon/liter. Compare this with the rating your vehicle is suppose to get. But remember it can very depending on how you drive.
Miles/kilometers divided by gallons/liters

1998 Volvo V70 with potential transmission problems?


Yes, it's the 'pnp' switch (also known as the inhibitor switch) which is on the side of the transmission.

I own 2 Volvo 960s (3 litre automatics) which are similar in many respects ... and have that flashing arrow. It's a well known fault and you don't have much to worry about.

Rather than write it all here, you can read what I wrote as an ebay guide about it at http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/Volvo-960-Automatic_W0QQugidZ10000000003233806

I did put similar info on my website at http://www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk/volvo960.html with photos

Though the ebay guide is better ...

If you haven't got time to read it ... forget the flashing arrow and put a bit of black tape over it ... My wife's car has (192,000 miles) had that arrow flashing for 3 years. My car (100,000 miles) has had that flashing arrow since I bought it 1 year ago.

I did change the pnp on both cars ... but you also need to have the computer error reset by Volvo to have the light extinguished. Don't worry ... keep driving.
