2006 Volvo S40 T5 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


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.

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.

Blue smoke is often the result of bad rings on the pistons. Engine rebuild time. It is possible that the turbo is leaking oil into your engine.

Did you test all the parts befor fitting ? Faulty parts would need to be replaced , have you wired the lights independently ? If so it shouldn't affect the CCM.

I suggest you take it apart and wrap a layer of electrical duct tape to make the ball joint a bit tighter fit.

Try locking and opening the doors it should reset this way. If not look at the fuzes under the glove box. If this all fails get it diagnosed at a Garrage.

I'd first check wire harness at door hinge area. Try window with door open then in different positions. Wires in that area break within enclosure. grasp harness and move it around, basically try to make widow work. starting car increases voltage to 14 volts. car not running battery should be at just over 12. if applicable You mite have fuse for that door, it's not "blown" but mite be dirty and not making good contact. window and lock use same sources for power and grounds. Then again issue mite be in driver side door but same wire issue . Good luck,

I would remove and repair the ECU. The issue is bad connections within the ECU or there is liquid damage on the connector.

The layout should be printed on the fuse box cover.

Did you remove the dist. while replacing the head if so you may have dropped the dist back in 1/2 tooth off on the timing and that would cause the engine to back fire. You need to bring #1 piston to the top of the cyl. and then make sure the rotor in the dist is pointing to #1 spark plug wire on the dist. cap and then drop the dist. You may need to turn the oil pump shaft to align the dist before dropping it onto the oil pump shaft. You can do that with a screw driver.
