Take battery loose and put back on. If this clears it and then later does it again. You need to get the trouble codes from : Autozone.com

Turn off the service airbag light 2006 volvo s40. I tried the normal reset for the service engine light and that is not working.


The SRS light is an item that must be reset by the dealer. Usually, there is a fault in the system that makes the light come on. Caution: Whenever this light is lit, the SRS is disabled. Consequently, the airbags will not deploy during an accident. Have the system checked out as there will be a code the system has stored in relation to the airbags, the crash sensor or something else. Be safe: Never work on the system with the battery connected, regardless of whether or not that light is lit!

I have a 2001 Volvo S40 and the airbag light has been on and won't turn off and I have know idea why?


The (air bag) SRS System has to be diagnosed to answer that

Why was that not done when the check light issue was resolved

Your lucky you had no accidents as the air bag is most likely
turned off,so why have you waited 9 months

You clearly never want to use that repair shop again

The airbag light is showing on the dash. What does this mean?


system has detected a fault. System must be scanned to extract trouble codes for troubleshooting. Not sure if your mechanic will have an airbag scanner, but the dealer will have it.

Brake light switch on 2001 volvo s40=my brake lights work sometimes and don't work sometimes. I have checked all fuses and bulbs. I have tried fiddling with the brake light switch and can make the brake...


Yes switch is the problem. Volvo claim they sell very few switches, probably because people bought new cars instead. Problem can be associated with failed ignition coils (2 of) but one does not cause the other but very confusing. Engine fails intermittently or conks out.
Reset battery earth connection on chassis bad design here. Clean off paint and thread also bolt coating. Even better, use brass bolt but do not overtighten. Volvo will try to get you to replace alternator which is not necessary.
Failing battery will light up all the warning lights but will not isolate the battery so if it shorts car will die and not run on alternator. If this happens disconnect battery until you get to garage.
Now you know you can buy an old S40 with confidence great car and very cheap for what you get.

2001 s40 volvo diesel .. turbo oil leak ??


Could be the Turbo oil return pipe seal, its a cheap about $10 but you need to get to the pipe.
Its just a bit tricky to reach and you will need the gasket to go on the other end of the pipe when you take it off.
Its a well know fault check the Volvo Forums web site.
