Consumers have filed a total of 5 complaints related to Volvo EXTERIOR LIGHTING.
The owner programmed a 5 minute idle shut off and did not provide anything for me as the driver to stay warm at night i was driving during winter and traveling to states like wyoming where it reached 23 degrees. He has many things not up to dot regulations with his truck, lot of things are not working and damaged. He also didn't do any type of a pre employment drug test or for any of the other drivers he hired. He threatened not to pay me and withheld my pay on two separate occasions. He stole 800. 00 from my back account for damages to his company truck that i hadn't driven for 3 weeks i and currently taking him to court to get my money back. He has screwed over plenty of drivers and should be shut down.
While i was driving in a busy multilane city traffic situation, the car's center console went completely blank and the turn signals, hazard lights, and volvo on call were not functioning properly. I am not sure what else was affected. This continued for a full 1-2 minutes, unlike times before when the system has done the same thing but quickly re-booted. The safety of others and myself was compromised, as i needed to change lanes to get onto the interstate. I could not tell if my signals were functioning because the signals were not making a clicking sound and the flashing signal indicator lights were completely nonfunctional. I tried the hazard lights as well, which did not function. I pressed the volvo on call button, but nothing happened. When i took the car to the dealership, the service manager stated that a "software update" was performed to fix the problem, and when i questioned how i was to know if this would be a problem in the future, i was told that i "wouldn't know unless there was a problem" and they claimed to know nothing about whether the incident would be reported to the nhtsa. I feel unsafe driving this car now, which is ironic considering that i bought a volvo for its purported safety.
Adaptive bending lights go off intermittently and headlamp malfunction warning on dash.
Error message showed on the instrument panel,? Headlamp system malfunction, service required? , however the light works but backup camera stop working. It also shows another error message? City safety system unavailable?. Ask the dealer and they said it is an software issue. Fixed after the software upgrade.
I updated the maps in the car's navigation system on 8/3/2016. At that time, volvo's server in sweden were down. They had been down for days. Next morning, when i started driving to work, i noticed that the sensus system started rebooting every couple of minutes. As i drove on the highway, i noticed that when the sensus system rebooted, if my left turn signal was on, it would go off for a couple of seconds and then come back on. If the sensus system was rebooting and i tried to turn on the left turn signal, it would not come on. This is a safety issue as sensus system is just a central console and it's reboot should not impact car's basic functions. By the time i left work in the evening, the server in sweden was back online and the sensus console stopped rebooting and issue never happened.
