Hi, Paul,

this error message sounds very familiar… on our D3-110 we had 3 years ago, just when we wanted to leave, exactly such a message with red light warning, engine failure! no further information. You can read in your Volvo manual which error codes are displayed. But then you still don't know which error is present. In any case, you need a Volvo technician with a VODIA tester, who can read the error memory of your ECU and delete it later. In our case an experienced electronic technician first tried his luck, but he could only suspect a sensor error.
We then called the Volvo hotline to get a Volvo technician, which took time because we were on a small Greek island and didn't want to continue with the engine. With the tester he found the fault in two minutes: the boost pressure sensor. It had to be ordered, it was not in stock from Volvo in Greece, so it had to be delivered from Sweden. The whole thing cost us three weeks of our holidays and 1100 Euros. The (BOSCH) sensor costs about 150€, in our bill it were 280 €! The difference were diagnosis and traveling costs. Grrr...
It's a huge mess with the fully electronically controlled engines, just like in a car. In case of malfunctions you can only do the basics without tester and expertise. It's unimaginable when you are on a long passage and the error message comes. But the Volvo man had one small consolation: the engines all have an emergency program in background like in cars, that allows you to continue driving in a reduced gear without the engine breaking down. Of course, the oil and cooling must be right.

Hope this may help you a little bit, I like to recommend you to get directly in Touch with "VOLVO Action service“, a 24/7 „global break down service in 28 languages“.
Try +32 9 255 69 77 or (while you stay in Grenada): +1 336 393 4968.

My best wishes.
Stay calm and carry on..

Best Regards

Volvo warning

Paul Dowd and Sharon Brown
 

Hi all,

 

I’ve recently started getting the following error message from my Volvo 110:

 

Caution

Check engine

Service required

Torque reduced

 

I changed the oil, oil & fuel filters and impellor, but the error message remains. I can’t see anything about this in the user manual. Any ideas? Am I supposed to tell it I’ve carried out the service? (like you do for some cars) I doubt it though as this is the first time in 8 years I’ve seen this.

 

 

Cheers,

Paul

Re: Hatch handle seat (corners) for Goiot tradition series

Justin Paulsen
 

Hi Mike,

Just a note about Rig-Rite in Rhode Island.  They can be very hard to reach, I always had to leave a message, and they call back from a private number.  Also make sure to ask specifically about shipping costs.  I ordered a replacement pawl for a winch and ended up paying a hefty fee for shipping this already very expensive part (a single pawl and spring for a size 10 winch).  They will not volunteer any information either, you need to specifically ask.

Just a friendly warning.

Justin

Hi All,

I'm looking for suggestions regarding the replacement of these failing hatch handle seats. Several of them are cracking in various places. Rig-Rite has them in cast aluminum which is nice, part# Goi HT-HSC. Unfortunately, they are quoted at $80 USD per piece ($640 USD to replace all of them!). There's got to be a less expensive option out there. Is anyone else looking to replace these parts? Has anyone already found a good solution or source?

Hello Mike,

I understand where you are coming from on the Goiot replacement parts. 

I just CNC'd up a full replacement set for the hatches on my boat, pictures attached. I can certainly make more.

If you can send me the part you want to be replicated, or else make a detailed sketch, I am sure we can make you smile :)
