You are watching: Power system service urgent volvo s40


I"ve been acquiring this red warning irradiate on mine dash v the battery symbol lit up and the words "POWER SYSTEM service URGENT" top top the blog post readout the previous day. It"ll which for about 2 minutes, and also then disappear as if nothing ever happened.

Has anyone viewed this before and if so, what"s the problem?FYI, I have an HID kit set up _without_ the DRLs turned off (there"s no flickering worry though). Would this be the cause?
Re: Red "Power System service Urgent" warning on dashboard with battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)It would average that your battery is running low. Have your charging device checked out at a good shop or a dealership. This is no something you desire to ignore. You might be stranded and also not be able to start your vehicle or store it running.On one more note, the HID kit probably takes about 2 min to warm up and also stop drawing power from the device to charge the capacitors to charge.

You might be stranded and not have the ability to start your vehicle or keep it running.On another note, the HID kit more than likely takes around 2 min to warmth up and stop illustration power from the system to charge the capacitors come charge.

I had a suspicion that it to be a short battery (I"ve left the lights on for long periods the time when I first bought the car and also didn"t realize that the lights continued to be on in the middle position), yet figured Volvo would have actually had an additional message that in reality said, "Low Battery, change Soon" or miscellaneous to that effect.You stated that that takes about 2 minutes because that the HID kit to heat up and also stop drawing power, however this only happens when every time the auto is started I"m assuming? ns ask because when mine "Power System company Urgent" post comes on, it"ll come increase in the middle of my drive for 2 minutes, disappear, climate come back later in the drive for a couple more minutes. Go the HID kit carry out a 2 minute strength cycle once and a while throughout the drive?

I"ve checked out said message pop up when the alternator"s voltage regulator died.

Man...if this is the case, it"ll be another component for mine dealership to delivery in overnight. Hello again loaner S40.

Re: (skwirl)
skwirl, my shop said me once I was doing a practice install of an electric fan the the e-system has actually sensors on that that trip codes (maybe warning light?) when there is a attract or flux sensed in ~ the system. Guess the practice lights might do it. Have actually no expertise but seems this might be related.The possibility of the battery or alternator going bad this quickly would seem odd also if the battery has actually been drained once or twice. Need to bounce back just fine.

Re: (Ride S40T)
Also save in mental the alternator put out much less voltage in ~ idle than when you room driving. For this reason the draw at idle can be as well much however traveling would make it walk away. Still, have the charging system checked by the dealer. That should have a code no matter if the light turned off.

Re: Red "Power System organization Urgent" warning ~ above dashboard v battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Dropped my automobile off in ~ the dealership today. They viewed the charging system and everything appears to be working just fine. They observed that I had actually an aftermarket HID kit but didn"t believe that it was the cause of the problem.My business advisor told me that the only thing the can create that message would it is in a poor alternator, but due to the fact that the alternator test turned out fine lock think the maybe simply one of the diodes in the alternator has gone bad and also is throw up this warning signals. They"re going come overnight a brand-new alternator and also replace that tomorrow. More to come tomorrow...
Re: (Dextrobrick)
My battery just died without giving any kind of message on board.......be careful, so inspect your battery after ~ 1 year.
Re: Red "Power System business Urgent" warning top top dashboard with battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Sorry to bring out a dead thread, but this just happened to my automobile today, really issues me due to the fact that my car is the end of warranty... Only thing i deserve to think that is washing my car last night and the sound system was top top fo about 30 minutes... However i started the car and also it was fine, today i got the message... However the car starts usually with no delay, once i step on the gas i gain a weird sound, like a humming sound... And i acquired a check engine through the password P0134 i m sorry reads: 02 sensor circuit no activity detected (bank 1 sensor 1)anyone with any advise??

Battery shouldnt take a dump in just a year, Id have actually it tested, and go from there. Next step would certainly be to have the alternator either pack tested or just checked because that diode ripple. Sounds favor a few lately have actually been having actually this issue.The alternators space not cheap unfortunately but is precious replacing to stop future problems.

its sending out 12.3 and 12.5 secure to the battery... Mine capacitor because that the sound mechanism is choose up the same thing as well...

Assuming over there is no diode in between the alternator and the battery, the voltage girlfriend measure deserve to be either from the alternator or the battery. The means I observed an autozone worker test it is come rev the engine while checking the voltage. For a an excellent / functioning alternator, the voltage should rise when the engine revs. The toyota I witnessed the test on, has actually a direct link from the pedal come the engines through a metal cable, for this reason by pulling the cable from the engine bay, it works the very same as stepping top top the pedals. Ns don"t think that is the very same for ours cars. So friend would require to obtain someone to rev the engine because that you if you examine the voltage.
Re: (fone)
yeahh every this stuff on ours cars room electronic. Yet if therefore anyways i would still obtain both replaced, and also were carry out you have the capacitor installed, befor the sub after the amp or befor the amp and also the sub? likewise if the battery is much less then a year old friend can get it changed under warrenty, i would say obtain a redtop optima battery there THE best.

Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning ~ above dashboard v battery icon. Trouble? (heico2.4i)
If there"s a strange noise when revving climate it"s the alternator, and if it"s a DENSO alternator climate it sure is the alternator
Re: Red "Power System organization Urgent" warning on dashbo ... (heico2.4i)
Standard alternator output should be 13.7 or damn close to 14v"s. Short 12"s appears a tiny odd, thats testing output from many other volvos together Ive never replaced a S40 alt. To to compare to though...

Yuuup time to change the alt... On my means home from occupational this morning the blog post came up again and the dashboard started showin every these errors, service the transmission, ABS airbag light, strength steering going on and also off, the spin regulate coming on and also off, the windows were walking up and down really slow, constantly shedding power on acceleration and also when i got home, ns turned off the car and also started it again a few times and it to be kinda struggling to start, i guess ns will have to give an arm and a leg to Deel Volvo in miami, fl ~ above monday...
