I got a 2007 Volvo V50 last week and the "Engine System Service Required" message has appeared. how serious is that message and can only a Volvo garage do the diagnostics? It has done 41000 miles. I have only driven it to work, around 180 miles over the last week.
The warranty from the seller (not a Volvo dealer) says "engine & gearbox breakdown warranty only", should this issue be covered within this kind of warranty?
The model is a V50 D5 SE Sport 5door Geartronic (diesel).
Reading with an ODB2 reader shows no fault codes logged, pending or historic. Using the Volvo inbuilt display (good READ and tap rear fog light twice) shows the following:
DTCS IN VEHICLE BCM DTS SET TCM CHECKING ECM DTC SET SWM CHECKING EPS DTC SET CEM DTC SET SRS READY CCM NOT CHECKED DDM CHECKING DIM READY ICM NOT CHECKED PDM DTC SET PSM DTC SET PAM READY
I presume the generic OBD2 device isn't reading the codes, so I'd need to find a mechanic with a VADIS to get the real codes?
