Replace the battery in the alarm and the issue will be fixed.

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.

Check the track for the slide mechanism. It may be there are some debris that have collected that have been pushed to the rear and have made a resistant to the further movement of the opening. Such a resistant will cause the over pressure switch to disengage the power, therefore stopping the further travel.

Most likely a hole on the floorboards. From underneath the vehicle look up. It is most likely there will be an obvious hole. Sometimes there are seams that rust through but not in an obvious way. Because this can allow CO2 into the vehicle it is a good one to fix quickly.

I hate to say that you may have PCM problems. I would start with making sure that your getting power to PCM, good grounds etc. check for mice chewing on wires stuff like that.....

Only way to know for sure (is to check system with AC pressure hoses attached. Oh, and check that compressor clutch is engaging and disengaging as it runs( loud clicking noise on compressir and clutch disk spins)

Sorry to **** in

Consiquential = Subsiquent damage as a result of a failure/ accident.

Speak to the insurance company and say its a result of the accident. The above is the same, any way Volvos Rock (Shame about the Ford Part)

P.S Sorry about the spelling

Assuming the fan is good, could be a bad coolant temp sensor. I've seen sensors go bad or have corrosion in the connectors that causes issues.

Sounds like worn piston oil/compression rings and/or cylinder walls allowing oil blow-past under heavy load. If that is the case, the only solution is an engine rebuild. If the engine is in good shape, it is also possible your engine has carbon buildup which is breaking loose and combusting. You could try to clean out any carbon deposits with an oil change and a good engine oil additive, and a good fuel system cleaner to clean the engine and see if that helps.

well whats wrong with it

Volvo Cars &... | Answered on Jul 15, 2019


HiFriendOnly the left side (if the driver position is located at this side) or right side (the drive in the opposite side) will be work because the fog lamp must work only in one side - left or right (or other drivers will see both lamps as brake lights - and due to this reason, only the left one (your driver position is on the same side) is working. So, you can think "and about the right side, why is the reason the fog light has a power cord if this side doesn't work? So I will answer you: your Volvo car has a security system called VOLVO ACTIVE BRAKE LIGHTING (you can make a search with these words) which both "fog" lamps will be turned on at the same time of your brake lights in an emergency situation when you need to stop your car quickly and intensively. That's it, friend. I hope to have helped you with your question.
