Volvo Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist
what were the code numbers??? codes never identify bad parts just failed systems. we can narrow down the failure with the actual codes
wow, you have a lot of codes set,
the first thing I would do is to clear these codes and drive the car. see what code returns first that will be the primry code to check first.
you can either have pepboys do it for you or you can remove a battery cable for 10 minutes. when the light returns you will have to get the codes read again.
Ok - do you still get the EML / engine fault light on?
Ok - in that case you do have relevant fault codes - one or more is causing this of what you have there - When they were read - did they tell what the codes were for / meant? They should have done.....
Okay - I have checked these codes through and they are all emission system related.
The first thing to check is the condition of your gas cap... check its tight - seals tight when closed. Check the seal - any issues there will cause this..
Now - if its not that - then the next thing to do with this is to speak with your local Volvo dealer - this is because these issues fall under what is usually a software issue that crops up in the Ecu - engine management computer and gives all these fault codes. The only way to fix that is to have a Volvo dealer do a software update for you on the Ecu... This is done free normally -as Volvo are aware of this issue and gave an extended to 10 year warranty on the problem.
So - thats your next steps on this one... Check that gas cap first... If its not that - do as above as your next step.. you cannot even hope to cure any other issues before knowing that the Ecu software is sorted and correct - though hopefully, thats all it will need to cure it for you.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
