WHAT in the WORLD is going on with my Volvo?!?!?!


Asked by Nikki Jun 27, 2014 at 08:56 AM about the 1994 Volvo 960 Level II Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't even know where to start! :(  I have several issues going on with my 94 Volvo 960
SW. The igniton started making a weird sound about a week ago. Kind of a roaring sound
after it's cranked..it only lasts a couple of seconds, but it sounds terrible and makes me
cringe!Things went from bad to worse last night, when on my way to work, I noticed my
orange dashboard arrow flashing, my "ABS" light on, my speedometer & odometer not
working AT ALL, and those little buttons beside the shifter that are labeled "W" "S" & "E"
are flashing on & off like a daggum Christmas tree! Someone PLEASE HELP!! I'm a single
mom and I can't afford to make a bunch of costly repairs... WHY dit'n I listen to mother &
marry a mechanic?! :(

Thank you for your speedy reply, and yes, it is a turbo. Amazingly enough though, the engine light is not on. (Seems like the ONLY one that's not on!) I tried to scan it on the machine at Advanced, but they couldn't oblige me since the engine light wasn't on. Anyway, thanks again...I guess I'll call a mechanic now. (siiiiiigh):
