The contact owns a 2002 Volvo S60. While driving at approximately 45 mph, there was steam coming from the front of the vehicle and the low coolant warning light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the head gasket needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 89,000.

The vehicle would not start. There was full battery power and the computer stated it was the immobilizer check manual. Several attempts were made and car sat overnight.the Volvo S60 restarted in the morning. The car ran fine for a day and would not start again. Dealership stated that the antenna ring or key chip might be bad. The antenna ring was changed and the car would not start a week later again. The car was taken to dealer ship and placed on scanner. The car function normally for two weeks and did not start again. Several blogs concerning this matter have been set up without any answers for the consumer. The dealerships scanned the vehicle and changed parts and the problem still persists. In my case the dealership stated that it did show a problem. Yet the problem is not fixed. Consumers are being stranded or in my case stranded several times for hours until the vehicle starts later.
