Check engine light Mechanic's...

Check engine light

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

Stays on, 2013 S60 T5, 62K miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried anything, just came on this morning, Im currently at work, I usually work on my own cars, but this is my first volvo Purchased used 2 months ago

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

There has been a maintenance message since I bought it, figured it could be reset but I haven't taken the time

Thanks.

Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

You need to stop by the local parts store on way home and have it scanned and retrieve fault codes and based on these fault we can pul up a pin point troubleshoot and be accurate

if the car is still running fine usually emission related, like oxygen sensor, gas cap , evap vacum line ,etc .

how is the car driving ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
Thank You

The car is running fine, if I can I will fix it myself, really depends on what it is. Could the maintenance message trigger the check engine light if not reset over and extended period of time?

no it will not trigger the check engine light for maintenance.

if you feel it is a glitch, like you did not turn gas cap enough times to hear 3 clicks or weak battery etc ,try resetting it , but if u do have like advance auto or auto zone , be nice to know what the fault # so we are accurate

Master Reset

1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .

Ask Your Own Volvo Question

If we have a misfire or some major the check engine light will flash ,that is when you do not want to continue on driving it

but since no effect on car performance ,most likely minor ,like emission related ?

there charcoal canister box at fuel tank is common , the vacuum lines, if emission, related, but i m guessing here with no faults

Bought a $20.00 code reader at Walmart, worked great, retrieved, then cleared the code, P2421 - Evaporative Emission System Vent Valve stuck Open, for now the code has not returned, drove at least an hour this morning, leaning towards gas cap or glitch, but I guess only time will reveal.

DTC P2421 troubleshot needed
