Summary of Complaint

MY CAR WAS MAKING A PUMPING NOISE FROM THE REAR OF THE CAR AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WOULD COME ON. I TOOK IT TO A LOCAL MECHANIC AND THEY INFORMED ME OF THE PEM RECALL/EXTENDED WARRANTY. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE VOLVO DEALERSHIP TO HAVE REPAIRED AND THEY SAID THE PEM WAS NOT THE PROBLEM AND THAT IT WAS A FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR AND POSSIBLY THE FUEL PUMP ITSELF. I DECLINED THE REPAIR AND EXACTLY 2 WEEKS LATER THE CAR FAILED TO START. I HAD IT TOWED TO MY LOCAL MECHANIC SINCE I LIVE 70 MILES FROM THE VOLVO DEALERSHIP. MY MECHANIC REPLACED AND MOVED THE PEM TO A NEW LOCATION, WHICH WAS EXACTLY WHAT THE RECALL/EXTENDED WARRANTY WAS FOR! THE DEALERSHIP GAVE ME A FORM FOR REIMBURSEMENT FROM VOLVO, BUT VOLVO REFUSED TO PAY THE $634 THAT I PAID FOR THE REPAIR. THEY FIRST TRIED TO SAY IT WAS NOT A "GENUINE VOLVO PART" BUT I VERIFIED IT WAS. THEN THEY SAID SINCE I DECLINED THE REPAIR FOR THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR, THEY COULD NOT PAY! THE REIMBURSEMENT FORM IS FOR THE PEM AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR. SO THIS PEM BECAME FAULTY IN A 2 WEEK PERIOD? I THINK NOT! OBVIOUSLY VOLVO DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR CARS AND I FEEL LIKE THEY LIED TO ME. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE RESEARCHED VOLVO FORUMS AND FOUND THAT VOLVO COMPLETED RECALL #181 FOR A FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR. (HTTP://SS.OTHERON.COM/RKELLY/VIDEO/R181+RETAILER+LETTER+-+FINAL.PDF) WHILE I DON'T OWN A VEHICLE INCLUDED IN VOLVO RECALL 181, I DO OWN A VOLVO WHICH SHARES THE SAME FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR. HERE IS THE BACKGROUND: I DRIVE A 2005 VOLVO S40, T5 AWD. I AM THE ONLY PERSON WHOM HAS EVER OWNED THIS CAR. IN SEPTEMBER 2011 MY FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR FAILED AND I WAS CHARGED APPROXIMATELY $550 AT THE DEALERSHIP TO HAVE IT REPLACED. IT FAILED WHILE I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. I HAD ALSO EXPERIENCED POWER-SURGE TYPE BEHAVIORS DURING START-UP, AFTER THE CAR HAD SET OVERNIGHT OR DURING MY WORKDAY. YESTERDAY, WITH THE KIDS IN THE CAR, I WAS DRIVING ALONG ABOUT 60MPH AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IS WAS LIKE MY CAR HAD STALLED OUT. THE BRAKES WORKED AND TURN SIGNALS WORKED. HOWEVER, THE STEERING HAD TIGHTENED UP. ALL OF THE LIGHTS ON THE DASHBOARD WERE LIT. I COASTED TO THE FAR RIGHT LANE AND TURNED ON MY CAUTION LIGHTS, STILL BEING IN THE ACTUAL ROAD. I TURNED THE KEY OFF AND THEN RESTARTED THE CAR. THE CAR STARTED OK. AS SOON AS I ARRIVED HOME IT HAPPENED AGAIN; THIS WAS NOT EVEN 5 MILES AND 15 MINUTES LATER. THE CURRENT FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR PART NUMBER SHOWS BOSCH PART- 31272730; WHICH, AGAIN, WAS NEW AS OF 2011. I'M CONCERNED THAT THE REPLACEMENT PART IS NOW FAILING- ALMOST 2 YEARS LATER AND LESS THAN 7,000 MILES LATER! RECENTLY I HAVE ALSO FOUND THE ISSUES WITH THE POWER-SURGE DURING START UP HAVE BEGAN RECURRING. UNTIL RESEARCHING THE ISSUE I WAS UNAWARE THERE WAS A RELATION BETWEEN THE POWER-SURGE AND FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON MONDAY TO DROP OFF MY CAR AT VOLVO. AT THIS POINT I DON'T HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT THE ROOT CAUSE AND COMPLETE SCOPE HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED IN VOLVO RECALL #181 OR THAT REPLACING THIS PART WILL CORRECT THE SAFETY ISSUE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THIS CAR HAS DEVELOPED AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM WHERE THE DASH LIGHTS START FLICKERING ON AND OFF DISPLAYING VARIOUS FAILURES ON THE DASHBOARD DISPLAY, LIKE IMMOBILIZER FAILURE AND CRASH MODE AND VARIOUS OTHER WARNINGS. AT THE SAME TIME, THE RADIO CUTS OUT AND AN AUDIBLE "CLICKING" IS HEARD UNDERNEATH THE DASH BOARD. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THE VEHICLE HAS STALLED OUT COMPLETELY WHILE DRIVING CAUSING A DANGEROUS DRIVING CONDITION AND I HAVE HAD TO COAST TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITHOUT POWER STEERING OR POWER BRAKES. SOMETIMES THE VEHICLE WILL START BACK UP, OTHER TIMES IT SIMPLY WON'T CLICK OR TURN OVER AT ALL. I FEAR AN INCIDENT WHERE THE STEERING COLUMN WILL LOCK AUTOMATICALLY WHEN THE VEHICLE DIES, AS THE STEERING COLUMN IS UNLOCKED BY THE IMMOBILIZER KEY FOB TO INITIALLY START THE CAR. IF THIS WERE TO OCCUR I FEAR THIS COULD CREATE AN UNSAFE CONDITION FOR THE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE AND OTHERS MOTORISTS OR PEDESTRIANS. I HAVE JUST HAD TWO NEW REMOTES PROGRAMMED TO THE VEHICLE AND THIS PROCEDURE WAS PERFORMED AT WEISS BRENTWOOD VOLVO IN ST. LOUIS MISSOURI. I HAVE OWNED THIS VEHICLE FOR ONE WEEK PRIOR TO TAKING THIS CAR TO WEISS VOLVO WITHOUT ISSUE AND THIS PROBLEM ONLY AROSE SINCE THIS SERVICE WAS PERFORMED AT WEISS VOLVO. THE PREVIOUS OWNER TOLD ME THIS PROBLEM DID NOT EXIST PRIOR TO THE SALE OF THE VEHICLE. *TR .... UPDATED 08/05/14 *BF

WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY MY CAR BEGAN TO SHOW SIGNS OF AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. DIFFERENT WARNINGS WERE COMING UP ON THE CONTROL PANEL, ALERTING ME TO BRAKE FLUID LOW, AS WELL AS MY CURRENT MILEAGE DISAPPEARING. WHEN I PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY, SHUT THE CAR OFF, AND REMOVED THE KEY THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS CONTINUED TO RUN. THE DISPLAY MESSAGES INCLUDING "BRAKE FAILURE, STOP CAR SAFELY" AND "IMMOBILIZER SEE MANUAL." THE BRAKES ARE FINE, BECAUSE THEY WORKED WHEN STOPPING THE CAR AND WORK WHILE THIS MESSAGE IS DISPLAYED. I BELIEVE THIS WAS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, AS I WAS DRIVING THE CAR EARLIER IN THE DAY AND NO ISSUES WERE ARISING. WHEN I TRIED TO RESTART THE CAR IT WOULD BE START SAYING TO SEE THE "IMMOBILIZER SEE MANUAL" AND WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE THE PROBLEM. THE CAR IS NOW STUCK IN A PARKING LOT UNTIL IT CAN BE TOWED TO A DEALER. I WOULD APPRECIATE THIS MATTER BEING INVESTIGATED AND RECALLED IF POSSIBLE, AS THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THE CAR HAS NOT RECOGNIZED THE KEY. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE EXHIBITED STALLING AND MISFIRES THE FIRST TIME AT 65 MPH. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT (CEL) CAME ON AND THE DIAGNOSTIC INDICATION WAS THAT FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR NEEDED REPLACED. IT CONTINUED WITH STALL AND MISFIRE AT INTERMITTENT TIMES WITH THE CEL STAYING ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY. I BOUGHT A FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR AND REPLACED THE ORIGINAL, WHICH HAS REMEDIED THE PROBLEM. WHEN I REPLACED THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR, I EXAMINED THE ORIGINAL PART AND NOTED THAT IT HAD A PART NUMBER OF 8699448 INSTEAD OF 31272733 LIKE THE REPLACEMENT PART. PUTTING IN FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR 8699448 ON THE INTERNET, I QUICKLY FOUND VOLVO RECALL 181 WHICH COVERS THIS PART FOR VOLVO 2003 - 2004 S60/V70 CARS (48,000 PLUS). MY MOTOR IS A SLIGHT VARIANT OF THE MOTORS USED AND NOT INCLUDED. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE MAJOR PART OF CONSIDERATION IS THE FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR 8699448 BUT VOLVO DID NOT SEE THEIR WAY TO INCLUDE ALL MOTORS USING THIS PART AND THE DANGER IS NO DIFFERENT FOR THE S40 THAN THE S60/V70. THE INTERNET SHOWS MANY OTHER EXAMPLES OF THIS FAILURE WITHIN 2005 S40S. THIS IS PROBABLY THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG WITH MANY MORE TO FOLLOW AND POSSIBLE POTENTIAL DANGEROUS ACCIDENTS IMPENDING. ALL INFORMATION I RELAYED IN THIS COMPLAINT HAS BEEN TOLD TO MY LOCAL VOLVO DEALER AND VOLVO CUSTOMER SERVICE (NATIONAL). *TR

Summary of Complaint

IGNITION SWITCH MALFUNCTIONING. WHEN YOU INSERT THE KEY, WHICH IS AN ELECTRONIC KEY THE MESSAGE DISPLAY WILL DISPLAY "KEY ERROR TRY AGAIN." WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE CAR WILL NOT START AT ALL. THUS FAR REPEATEDLY JIGGLING THE KEY FOB WHILE IN THE SWITCH, AND/OR TURNING ON/OFF MULTIPLE TIMES GETS THE SYSTEM TO EVENTUALLY RECOGNIZE THE KEY. THERE ARE 2 KEYS TO MY CAR AND THIS HAPPENS WITH BOTH KEYS, SO I KNOW IT ISN'T THE KEY. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ONLINE AND FOUND IT TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM. THIS PROBLEM WILL LET ME REMOVE THE KEY, BUT THE RADIO AND INTERIOR LIGHTS STAY ON, AND I CAN'T LOCK THE CAR. THIS HAPPENS SPORADICALLY, BUT ON AVERAGE ONCE A WEEK. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2005 VOLVO S40 T5 WHICH I HAVE ENJOYED THUS FAR. HOWEVER EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE WHEN YOU INSERT THE KEY, WHICH IS AN ELECTRONIC KEY THE MESSAGE DISPLAY WILL DISPLAY "KEY ERROR TRY AGAIN." WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE CAR WILL NOT START AT ALL, NOTHING INSIDE THE CAR INCLUDING THE RADIO WILL WORK EITHER. AFTER 20 TO 30 TIMES TRYING TO START THE CAR THE KEY WILL EVENTUALLY START THE CAR. THERE ARE 2 KEYS TO MY CAR AND THIS HAPPENS WITH BOTH KEYS, SO I KNOW IT ISN'T THE KEY. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ONLINE AND FOUND IT TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM. THIS HAPPENS SPORADICALLY FOR EXAMPLE IT WILL HAPPEN SEVERAL TIMES OVER A WEEK OR SO AND THEN NOT HAPPEN FOR SEVERAL MONTHS. IT RECENTLY STARTED ABOUT A WEEK AGO AND HAS HAPPENED EVERYDAY SINCE. IT IS EMBARRASSING TO BE IN SUCH A NICE CAR AND IT NOT START. SOMETIMES WHEN THIS HAPPENS, IN ADDITION TO THE "KEY ERROR TRY AGAIN" MESSAGE THE MESSAGE DISPLAY WILL ALSO DISPLAY MESSAGES INCLUDING "BRAKE FAILURE, STOP CAR SAFELY" AND "IMMOBILIZER SEE MANUAL." THE BRAKES ARE FINE, BECAUSE THEY WORK ON THE WAY HOME AND WORK WHILE THIS MESSAGE IS DISPLAYED. THE COMPUTER IN THE CAR WAS RESET AND THAT SEEMED TO HELP TEMPORARILY, BUT I BELIEVE IT IS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM SINCE THE CAR DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE KEY. I WOULD APPRECIATE THIS MATTER BEING INVESTIGATED AND RECALLED IF POSSIBLE. *TR
