Question about 2000 Volvo S40

Open Question

Sport Mode/W Mode won't disengage.

Had a blow-out on front passenger tire, affecting some wiring. have resolved all issues, except the side turn signal maker wire needs to be reconnected. However, the transmission won't switch out of "S-Mode", the setting at the time of the blow-out. The switch will change from lit to unlit, but the transmission will continue to function in sport mode.

1st thing to do is run a self test of the trans for trouble codes, sounds like a problem with the electronics, may be a poor trans connector connection or a solenoid issue in the trans.
2nd if the oil pressure is low and by your description it is, don't drvie the car, you will burn out the rod bearings then a new engine is needed, yes it sounds like a oil pump issue, there is no easy pump to change, jack the engine off the motor mounts and it makes getting it out easier. Please give at least a helpful rating, we experts do this for free, just want to help folks like you with car problems.

You mean a GM, no?

Anyway---the whole switch assembly/stick on the column needs to be replaced. You can find many that will work and interchange with other GM products at a salvage yard---Mahalo!

SOURCE: Volvo V70 2001 to replace front passenger turn bulb

If there are no burn marks on the housing then use as much force by hand to turn the entire black knurled assembly counter clockwise, you may already be at the point you have to be. Now try wiggling it back forth and pulling straight back at the same time. I'm assuming you've removed the housing from the body. If not there is a small gray latch that just pushes back and the whole assy. comes out very easily. When replacing the bulb put a little dab of vaseline on the metal area of the bulb before inserting it.

Tail lights and turn signals dont work

Use the wiring schematic to follow the wires and check for any breakage or burnt wires. Repair any breakage and recheck. Check all grounds in the circuit as well; a faulty ground can cause total loss of lights.
Check the brake light switch near the break pedal. Use a voltmeter to make certain the voltage is correct with switch engaged and disengaged. Check the grommet that depresses the switch as well. Repair any issues and recheck.

Heater not blowing hot air

when you operates the heater button worm water of your engine's water jackets enter to the evaporator locates inside your A/C blower & air flows through it & air becoming worm. Therefore I proposed you to check your vent linkages for vent doors inside the blower unit.

My front wheel sensor shows low tire pressure, but it is fine. Is there a reset for that?

If its reading low and the tire pressure is correct there is a problem with that sensor. Typically they need to be replaced in order to correct the problem. A TPMS tool capable of displaying TPMS sensor data would confirm the bad reading.

They display the tire pressure as a convenience. They don't have to display the pressures and many makes/models do not.

The level of sophistication with these systems is slowly improving. Many newer models will automatically know where the tire is and display it correctly. Unfortunately yours need to be relearned manually after every tire rotation which is very common with earlier systems. It is assumed that this is done after every tire rotation which would then make the displayed tire locations correct.

If you are confident that the correct tire location is being displayed than I wouldn't see any issue with replacing that sensor. If you are not confident the correct tire location is being displayed than it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a relearn procedure.

The TPMS matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the
engine off.
3. Press and hold the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the
same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS
learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the
TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.
4. Start with the driver side front tire. The driver side
front turn signal also comes on to indicate that
corner's sensor is ready to be learned.
5. Remove the valve cap from the tire's valve
stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing
or decreasing the tire's air pressure for about
eight seconds. The horn chirp, can take up to
30 seconds to sound. It chirps one time and then
all the turn signals flash one time to confirm the
sensor identification code has been matched to
the tire/wheel position.
6. The passenger side front turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side front tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7. The passenger side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8. The driver side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
9. After hearing the single horn chirp for the driver
side rear tire, two additional horn chirps sound
to indicate the tire learning process is done.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
If no tires are learned after entering the TPMS learn
mode, or if communication with the receiver stops, or
if the time limit has expired, turn the ignition switch to
LOCK/OFF and start over beginning with Step 2.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure
level as indicated on the Tire and Loading
Information label.
11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

This info can also be found on page 5-66 of your owners manual.

Changed multi function switch, bulbs, and passenger side rear light assembly (reverse, blinker, brake light). Everything works except the rear passenger side turn signal but the front passenger side is...

You have a bad connection at the rear passenger side turn signal. It is either the connection is corroded or a wire is loose on the ground side of the circuit.

Which tire front or rear? also when you say right do you mean passenger side or driver side? If you wish to say I will reply back to you as it will be different depending which tire it is and if it's passenger side or driver side.

The front driver seat on 2004 Camry is stuck

Perhaps an item got caught under the seat and possibly affected the linkage wire between rail tracks.A small linkage wire trips the console side track.Without this,that particular track will not disengage.Look under the good working passenger side seat and you might notice this linkage wire.It will then give you an opportunity to see if it works well on the inop seat. You can pull that wire(or trip that linkage arm by hand if you are in a dilemma and need the seat moved in order to drive but use caution on these moving parts and dont get pinched.

My front passenger door does not open neither from the inside or the outside. it looks like the lock is stuck in the locking position and won't open from the drivers side push button or the passenger's...

hi deleon,

on your door, if you remove the panel from the inside, you should see a lever connected to the handle that is supposed to disengaged the door hinge opening the door.

your may have this part broken due to corrosion, or there is a possibility that the lock did not disengage leaving the lever connect to the door handle not disengaging the door hinge.

have this checked with a local mechanic or consult the service manual for DIY.

if you have other questions, just lemme know.

Heat works on driver side, passenger side blows cold air.

Blend door for passenger side or blend door motor has failed. Very big job to remove dash and work on it. Except the door motor is accessable from the glove box.

Warning light for 4-wheel drive

I had this problem on my 1995 Montero. The 4-wheel-drive indicator lights wouldn't stop blinking when I switched from 4-wheel drive to 2-wheel drive. It turns out that I had a slow leak in one of the front tires. After I fixed the leak and made sure the pressure was the same in both front tires, the problem went away. 
This made sense to me because if one tire is much lower in pressure, it's closer to the ground, i.e. has a smaller radius, and therefore rotates more quickly. The manual says to drive in a straight line when disengaging 4-wheel drive but with the lower tire pressure on one side it was the equivalent of driving in a circle. 
You could try checking your tire pressures and see if that makes a difference. Hope this helps.
