20 Most Recent 2004 Volvo S60 Questions & Answers

There is none, BUT if the airbags go off, it'll turn off the engine as a safety feature.

All it takes to 'reset' that is to turn the ignition off and then back on/try to start it again and it should - barring any damage preventing it from starting.

Ok when you move the key to start the car. you need the following definitions.

pos 0 equals car off
pos 1 equals acessory position
pos 2 equals run position (NOT START)
pos 3 equals start position

check your drivers information module, and see that your triip display is in trip 1 (T1)

then put your car into position 1. push and HOLD the trip reset meter. WHILE HOLDING the reset button, rotate the key to position 2. Hold the reset button until you see the triangle in the dash flash yellow. Once this starts flashing remove your finger from the reset button. Shut the car off, verify light is out. repeat once if necessary.

HELLO Rebelsfruit,

Year make & model would HAVE at help...

I would love to help you with your restoration project:
You are currently listed under Volvo S60 ...failure to
Disclose the size & NATURE of your "Shredded" wires
is a LOGISICAL issue on your end (just make sure
the gage, type size and insulation of every "PATCH"
is EXACTLY correct... and if the wires are "twisted" or
braided... That "TWIST" must be duplicated exactly.
(ditto... color (I would recommend a salvage yard
or NEW harness before ever recommending a
ROOKIE field engineering solution)).

Solder and HEAT-SHRINK tubing are the correct way
to put in all your splices... (patching).

The fact that ALL your lights are on is an EXCELLENT
indication... Your system is designed to do that as
part of your INITIALIZATION...
(all the wiring to the dash & the indicators are ALL good
(remove power)).

In order to get DEEPLY into your sophisticated ELECTRONIICS
You MUST observe ELECTRO-STATIC DISCHARGE (ESD) precautions.

Cheap $6 wristband (wear it...!!)

FREE drawings at
BBB Industries Premium Alternators Starters Power Steering Products

(again... cannot be stressed enough)
That means you do nothing that would generate
ANY SPARKS (you might not even feel) around or near

While vehicular ECU/ECM prices are astoundingly
low... (popular) That only indicates to me that there
is a whole lot of INCOMPTENCE out there...

ASO IMPERATIVE... cheap/cheesy volt meters can
damage SEMICONDUCTOR just as surely as a bullet...

Buy a tone TRACER and learn how to use it...
((trace only ISOLATED WIRES ))...

Only restore power after every engine WIRE
HAS been traced from end to end...!!

You have to diagnose an ignition problem,
since you have the PO300 & misfires shown,
at least for many cylinders

Could end up just being one cylinder or several
that need whatever ignition parts control them

Individual Coils for each cylinder or a module that
applies to all of them

Wouldn't use the car until resolved
As it gets worse, you will ruin the exhaust converter

No idea on the whistle

You will have to unplug the siren module and try it. You could try and disconnect the battery for about 20 minutes and then try it again.

There is not an easy way if the pump is broke. A Siphon
might work.

you are supposed to replace it with only Pentosin CHF-11 hydraulic fluid or something equivalent. And also maybe your used pump is bad, or you have air trapped. To bleed it turn lock to lock many times and hold it at lock for few seconds.Check this video out. Volvo S60 Power Steering Drain and Fill

You can reset the computer by disconnecting your Battery for 15 Minutes. That should reset the Lights on the dash.

Look in a Box under the hood that looks like a Fuse Box.
