Did you try to disconnect the battery over night?

UPDATE from a minute ago lol (trying to get all I can in before the storm!). Anyway popped the hood and saw the air intake hose popped off. That makes sense. I'm a real mess when I work this midnight shift. Anyways, clamped back down. Also noticed, vacuum hose on airbox fell off. Put that back into place.

Flashing arrow still on despite battery disconnected for extended period of time. While in there I saw a broken vacuum hose. Can anyone describe what side effects would occur with this hose as it appears? I know it runs back to the turbo and I will replace it once I have to time to remove it and figure out what size it is.

Air leak is air leak. Replace with 5 mm hose and new clamp.

I've had a similar experience, except mine wouldn't restart. A peak under the hood revealed a blown-off intercooler hose. That's all it was! A bit scary as the car died on the freeway, dash lit up, etc. Fortunately, that's all it was.

Don't you have a volvo dealer around that can read and delete the codes? Their business might be slow due to?the?storm ;-)

Volvo is a bit of a drive. Anyway, all I could today is take it for a nice little drive. I just realized that I could reset the light myself with the key on and off 5 times routine.

Considering this issue closed with my stupidity of not plugging the plug bag in and dealing with the flashing arrow as a result.
