Top Tip - Volvo

(Covers V60)

Issue

 
The vehicle loses most of its electrical functions intermittently.
 
The vehicle will still start and drive, but, no locking, windows, media, heater, and/or seat functionality will operate.
 
This happens randomly, one minute it is fine, and the next it has failed. When the symptom happens, most of the dash warning lights stay on when you turn the ignition off.

Cause

 
The screen washer pipe under the passengers dash close to the A-pillar has leaked on to the connection plug 74/409 pins, and corrupted the Medium Speed (MS) CAN bus.

Action

  1. Remove the glovebox to gain visual access.
  2. Locate washer pipe and connection plug 74/409.
  3. Inspect washer pipe and connection plug and repair as required.
