20 Most Recent 2001 Volvo S60 Questions & Answers

It's been a while since you asked but in the event you still have this issue - I would definitely start with testing the sensor to start and if found faulty, replace.

On my 2007 S60 T5 I experienced similarly erratic ambient temperature readings which effected my A/C operation.
While awaiting the arrival of the replacement sensor (~$15) I removed the door panels and treated the various wiring connectors to some contact cleaner and dielectric grease during reassmebly.. Despite a Volvo Service Bulletin highlighting potential problems with corroded wiring harnesses; in my case the connectors all looks clean and corrosion free - and after this exercise there was no improvement with the erractic ambient temperature readings.

Once the sensor arrived I was able to easily replace it. It took less than 15 min and required only a plastic pry bar and T15 Torex wrench. Testing the sensors with an DVM I found that the new/good sensor read 167K Ohms, while the old/faulty sensor was open with no resistance reading.

Thus on the basis of my personal experience I would recommend testing the sensor to start and if it is found to be the problem, replace. If it is not faulty then proceed with cleaning wiring harness connections.

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

First thing, disconnect the negative terminal from the battery post and wait 20 minutes, relax and then reconnect the battery to reset everything.

I would say this is to do with the alarm system , the alarm modual is inside the drivers front wing.To get in to inspect it means the removal of the front wheel arch liner , or the plastic cover.. . This is a comon problem .

The upper strut supports are a common problem on this model. You can check by putting a 21mm socket and 1/2" ratchet on the top shock nut. This may be covered by a plastic cap that is easily popped off. If it turns freely, replace it (check both sides). If not, check the sway bar links, they are also a noise maker when worn.

Check the fuses under the hood also. You may have a bad siren module.

The low coolant sensor is in the resivor where you put the coolant in. Since you drove it such a short distance the thermostat probably did not open to allow the coolant to pass. There is a skid plate underneath the car you can remove to find the source of the leak.

It would be worth a call to Portland before making the drive. It is most likely your ETM ( Electronic Throttle Motor) Volvo might cover it under warranty.
