It started with...

It started with a warning light saying driver door was not shut and the warning light blinking every time I engaged the left turn signal with a beeping sound. Now it starts as soon as I start the car until I push the door lock in the locked position.It still beeps and flashes every time I engage the left turn signal. There is a steady motor sound coming from the door like a small motor running and something not catching.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the door switches?

Not yet and the door switches with the window and the locks engage.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Volvo?

2006 volvo xc90

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XC90 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Let me have mechanic check fuses and will get back to you

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

No will recontact

What is the best way to not keep buying parts? Have a local mechanic that will install if I buy, but the prices for the parts if they supply are extremely excessive. Trying to do minor repairs to sale car.This seems to go to other systems as it progresses and I was initially asked if I had checked the fuses. can this a series of reaction as each fuse goes bad? Trying to stay below $200 additional expenses before I sell the vehicle.

lock alone door lock cost over 200$ cem module Is part alone $1100

Ask Your Own Volvo Question

best way would pay someone to diagnose test failed module to test cem module labor is 200-300 $ lock testing is around $100 labor
