Having problems with your Volvo S40 ?

Dash displaying random error messages and very keen immobiliser

\015 Hi. I have a 2005 S40 sport.\012Most mornings it won't start straight away because the immobiliser kicks in. Eventually, after locking/unlicking the car (I heard doing this 5 times helps) a few times the engine starts, but the dash shows a red triangle warning me that the breaks don't work and advising to stop safely. The DTSC button does not turn off, the display scrolls through the error messages and the dials don't work. Sometimes the indicators stop working too. HOWEVER, after driving a few miles everything returns to normal and the car works fine, starts perfectly etc with no error messages until the following day when it starts all over again.\012Does anyone have any idea of what could be causing this?\012Thanks in advance...\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 10-05-2021
