Not familiar with volvo but had a pontiac years ago that had a shift up/down light that was only to maximize fuel economy (standard transmission)

You can find vacuum leaks with something smoking, such as a cigar or a sage bundle or a can of carb cleaner will sometimes help you locate the leak.

Instructions

1 Make sure all doors are closed, as well as the hood. Make sure the tailgate or trunk is locked. Get into the car and lock all doors.

2 Insert the key and turn it from the insertion position (position I) to the "on" position (position II - not the "start" position) five times. In other words, all the dash lights come on, but the engine doesn't start. When you turn the key to ON the fifth time, leave it there. You have 10 seconds to perform this whole step.

3 Hold down each remote button for a second or two, so the car identifies those buttons as the ones to respond to. If you want multiple remotes to work for that car, you'll need to hit the buttons on each of them in rapid succession (all within 5 seconds) as well. You can program up to three remotes per car.

4 Get new batteries if the above doesn't work, and try it again. If you already have new batteries in the remote, then proceed to the next step.

5 Press and hold down the odometer reset button.

6 Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position.

7 Release the odometer button while the service reminder light (SRL) flashes. Don't wait until the flashing stops to release the odometer button. If you did that, you waited too long.

8 Turn the ignition off.

You may have an old engine oil, why don't you have your car service and change oil and oil filter as well. Then if the problem still appears, then that's the time to start tracing where the problem really starts.

Do you have anymore information. If so please forward everything you have regarding this problem. If the car is starting, running but not accelerating there may be a problem with the accelerator pedal position sensor or related circuit. Usually the engine light will turn on because the EMC identified a fault and a code or codes will be stored. If the engine light is on or flashing please have the codes read. Any questions please write back. Good Luck.

The easy and cheapest fix is to get a new key cut and tape the head of the original key in close proximity to the halo ring sensor.

a circle with an exclamation mark is usually the low tire indicator (that symbol is a tire and a tire gauge). sometimes when the temperature drops down, one of the tires will show up as low & later in the trip when the tire warms up, it will read correctly. Or, you can just have oone that is too low & need air. good luck

Call your Volvo dealer with the VIN number. They can give you the code and advise if you can reset it yourself or if you will have to take it in.

Sounds like a bad ac compressor

2005 Volvo S40 | Answered on Aug 15, 2018


Sounds like you got motor oil in your coolant. What does the motor oil look like on the dipstick? If it's the same milky, muddy color and thick, you need to have some major work done. Either a head gasket or cracked head or block.
If the motor oil looks OK, you need to drain, flush/clean, and refill your cooling system with fresh coolant. I would strongly recommend having an experienced mechanic check it out for you.

Have you replaced the filter and fluid every two years or 24K miles? Try fresh filter and fluid as a cheap possible fix.
