Question about Volvo V70

1 Answer

My 2014 V70 geartronic has suddenly started showing a red warning triangle and a picture of the interior showing which seat belts are fastened. Any ideas please?

Also my wife says yesterday for no apparent reason the vehicle gave a series of warning 'beeps' and a red light showed briefly next to the column showing whether the car was in park, drive etc. Thanks Paul

The passenger seat has a occupant weight sensor in it. If she placed her purse or anything in it, the warning will come on. Either fasten that belt or remove any objects you have in the seat. This was my very first thought when I read your question.

SOURCE: Dashboard controls dead (no speedometer..), hazard light flashing

Your problems remind me of the time I forgot one last wire when changing engines on a Chevy pickup and I pulled it in two. It was a ground strap from the frame to engine which I didn't see in my haste to the get the job done. After the engine swap and everything was up and running the fuel guage would read full, then empty, then full again. Gauges in unision would peg right and then in left directions. Heater would set it self, and the radio. I was convinced it was possessed.

The farmer I was doing the work for spotted the broken ground strap and wanted that soldered back together as he knew I had a very good soldering iron to do that with. When I finished with the solder, the poltergeists were gone and have not returned. I would suggest you have a missing or loose ground strap somewhere. It might be stuck in your shifter works making it not act normal as well.

SOURCE: show pictures on how to install seat belts for a

Do not attempt this unless you are nowhere near a Subaru dealer. If you have defective seat belts, take it to the dealer, they have a lifetime warranty as long as you did not tear them up or something like that. I just took in a 99 Forester that had a belt that would not retract and they fixed it under the warranty for free.

SOURCE: Seat belt warning light

Usually a sensor in the seat that recognizes a body in it. Check under the seat for any plug that may have disconnected. maybe someone kicked it with their foot.

SOURCE: door warning light comes on,and seat belt light as well for no apparent reason

Your probably going to need an expensive scan tool to figure this out. I am going to guess that one of your door switches is starting to fail. When the problem is present it will be fairly easy to review the door sensor state (open/closed) for each door with all the doors closed. If one shows open that that door will need to be checked.

The dealer or any good independent repair shop will be able to help you with this. There will likely be a fee involved for this service.

A red light next to the oil light came on whilst driving yesterday, a funny shape that i would think may relate to the diesel/fuel filter? after a while it went off? What is this warning light for??


Did it sort of resemble the outline of an engine? That is the engine malfunction light. Get it to a garage and they will attach it to a code reader and that will tell where the fault is and why the warning light came on.

All the warning lights will be detailed in the owners manual.

What causes warning lamps not to go off after starting 1kd toyota hilux.


When there is no fault. The lights come on to show you that the bulbs are working. When you start the vehicle, they go off to show there are no faults. Then if a fault becomes apparent, the light comes on to warn you.

What does a BMW 2006, 325i alternator warning light look like?


Hi rs11126,

If your charging system has a malfunction, you should see a red icon that shows a battery symbol with a - and + sign in your cluster. It has been used in most of BMW vehicles as a warning indicator.

My wife reports a check engine light and a red square with a wavy line warning light...can you help


The red square with the wavy light is a low coolant warning light. The check engine light could be on for many reasons. I would check the coolant and add some if it's low. Then you can take your car to many different places to have the engine code read. Most AutoZones and Advanced Autos and other auto parts places will have a customer use code reader and will pull the code for you for free. I would address the coolant problem asap, low coolant can cause your engine to overheat and blow the engine. The engine light may also just be on because you have the low coolant warning. If that IS the reason for the engine light, after cycling (car gets to normal operating temp then completely cold) the car about 3-5 times the light will go off on it's own. Good Luck!

Mhy wife jus drove 200 miles and the the maintance light came on We're 300 miles away from my next oil change in my 2007 honda pilot. Could she get home without a problem?


Sure she can drive it. That light is only a reminder for you to service the vehicle, not a warning. Red lights are warning lights that need immediate attention. Yellow lights are reminders.

Hi, I have a check front tire pressure warning on my 2009 saturn vue hybrid I filled up the tire it's not low at all, how do I get rid of the indicator warning? Thanks Amanda


The TPMS light (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) for that vehicle should function as follows.

If the light is on and steady, it means that the pressure in one or more of the tires is too low, and if the light is flashing, then it indicates that one or more of the tires are over-inflated.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "On" or "Run" position but do not start the vehicle. (If the vehicle has an electronic keyless ignition then place the ignition switch in the "ACCY" position)

2. Press the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons at the same time on the vehicles remote key fob, and keep holding the two buttons down until you hear the horn beep, and usually this takes around five seconds. The horn beep will indicate that the learn cycle has begun.

3. Re-learn the TPMS system. Deflate or inflate air into the driver-side front tire for approximately 8 to 10 seconds and then listen for the horn to beep one time. (the horn might beep before the 8 to 10 second re-learn, or it could even take as long as 30 seconds after)

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining three tires. Also, the remaining three tires must be checked in the exact following order, the passenger-side front tire, the passenger-side rear tire and finally the driver-side rear tire. After the final TPMS sensor has re-learned then the horn will beep twice.

5. Listen for the horn to beep twice. When the horn does beep twice, it wikll be the indicator that the TPMS system has re-learned and reset.

6. Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position, and then be certain that all four tires have the correct tire pressure as recommended on the drivers door, and the next time that the ignition is turned on, the tire pressure light should be reset.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Air bag waring light came on for no apparent reason


Possible trouble areas are drivers side air bag, spiral cable in column, wiring to the air bag sensor assembly or the sensor assembly its self. Without a competent technician using the proper diag tools it would hard to pin point the problem.

I have a warning light that flashes so fast I can't tell what it


Wow. Ok. That was a pretty rude response you received there form r_clark. Let's see if we can find a reasonable way to help you.

When you first get in your car, instead of starting it right up, turn the key to the "on (or run)" position. With the key on, but the engine off, most of your warning lights will light up and stay lit. Some may go off after a few seconds. Draw a quick sketch of the layout of your dashboard before doing this. Then, with the warning lights all on, jot the name and location of each one on your sketch. The next time you are driving, when the light flickers on and off, you should have a fair idea of what it is.

Also, if you are in the process of actually starting the car when this happens, keep in mind that when you turn the key through "on" to "start" and then release it, the vehicle's self test for the dash will turn all those warning lights on, then off, briefly. Certain important lights will come on last and only flicker on briefly. As long as they are doing that during start up, they are ok, and it just means the lights are working properly. If they are actually flickering on while driving or idling, then you have a problem, but likely not a serious one yet.

Hope this is helpful, good luck, and let me know how it works out!

Beeping with no warning lights


usually beeping noise is associated with warning signs (to make the driver notice)....so perhaps the electrical connection got shorted somehow cuz of dirt or water.....i think you should have the electrical wiring checked at the service shop...
