Customer Question
I have an 06...

I have an 06 S40 the flashers turn on by themselves the headlights work sometimes unless you hold the turn signal handle back witch deploys the high beams but has to be held that way and neither of the electric seats work or the trunk latch

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Bulbs are fine fuses seem to be fine as well

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S40 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying I'm down to thinking about replacing the CEM

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Do you still need help with this?
