Volvo C70 ODBII Fault Codes

Postby Guest » Mon Jan 17, 2005 6:31 pm

A friend of mine has a 2000 volvo c70 that has popped up some engine codes. Her mechanic is not a dealer or does not have the dealer specific code definitions so he can only give her the numbers of the codes that have popped up and has recommended she bring the car to the dealer, who then charges $50 or so just to read the codes. Anyway, I was hoping to help her out, but cannot find a reference that contains that codes she has. Does anyone know what these codes are for, as well as have a reference she can check in the future.

Codes
P1655
P0245
P0031
P0037
P1332

Thanks in advance...

P1655 not on my list
P0245 Turbocharger Wastegate Solenoid A Low
P0031 N/A no # below 100
P0037 N/A no # below 100
P1332 not on my list

My listing starts at P0100. It is a generic ODBII listing that does not have specific Volvo codes.

I wish I could help more.

Remember that one problem can effect other components and kick multiple codes.

Thanks guys, I think these will help, or send the mechanic in the right direction. Can either of you send me a copy of fax of your engine codes so I can use them for future reference?

mashjones,
We extend you a new member welcome.

Matthew is working on adding to the code list on this site. In the mean time if you post a question we will try to answer. Matthew has also listed links to other useful Volvo sites on the right side of the home page. Ozbrick or volvospeed have lists you can copy.

Thankyou dosbricks, i appreciate the help. Before landing here I google'd volvo engine codes and ran into ozbrick's i think. And now I have checked out volvospeed. On both websites the codes that i find are of a three number syntax, however the codes coming up are a four number preceded by a 'p'. Are these different generations of OBD? If so can you further direct me in finding a list for the 'p' generation.

Thanks
