Customer Question
Have 2006 Volvo S80...

Have 2006 Volvo S80 and had trouble with check engine light and the code from our Volvo mechanic has read the fuel injection system. The car acts like it is running out of gas and runs rough till it stops. Gauge reads 1/4 and now 1/2 full. We have had every part in the system replaced or checked. Both gauge float and fuel pump replaced. Replaced fuel pressure sensor on the rail twice. Today having same problem again where it acts like out of gas at 1/2 full mark with check engine light on again. What else could it possibly be. Our Volvo mechanics at carcrafters in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania is out of ideas. Can you help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on constant

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S80 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Both me and my Volvo mechanics at CarCrafters in Lancaster county, pa. See above explanation of what we have done.

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

No getting late. Can we complete tomorrow? How does this work?

Wanting to know what else could be causing the fuel stuttering at 1/2 full tank.

I attached files from Volvo mechanic and he only said 2900 code on his receipt. I see you have VW and Audi emblem on your icon. Are you a Volvo expert?

Hi, different expert here. My name is***** faulty fuel pump electronics module (PEM) will cause this fault code. If the PEM has not been replaced I would recommend doing so.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
