Default V40 D4 Fault Code P04D9

Hello all, had a 64 plate V40 D4 for about nine months no problems , the last 2 though amber warning light, had it checked comes back as P04D9 EGR cooler pipe and sensor. ( I think)
contacted Volvo direct as I had read all posts in google etc and at 90k miles I was curious that it had got this far without any problems. Turns out this car had the known problem at 56k ( last owner did 30k in 12 month) wow. Anyways Volvo say as the problem was addressed by them in Jan 17 it is no longer their problem.
I would agree if they had fixed the initial problem not just temporarily,
So my question is can I get Volvo to do it gratis, or how much will it cost me .

cheers in advance.

doesn't sound like a good service adviser in that dealer , you should be getting some sort of goodwill depending on what the problem is , That fault code is not a recognised volvo code .. what is the VIN ?

Ok well I have been to Stoke Volvo , surprise surprise it is same fault as NON volvo diagnostic P049D900 ( same code all but 00 on the end) cost me 100 to find out EGR at limit requires cooler and manifold, recommends cylinder leak test to confirm route cause, I asked if the software had been upgraded when the replace/repair was done Jan 17, told that may not have as it wasn't standard practice back then, as it stands I now have to pay for cooler and manifold + labour as a temp fix or have the cylinder leak test done which could possibly lead to needing a new engine,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, cosmic,,,,,,,,,,,,, in 11 months the car has gone from being one of the best cars I have ever had to a costly useless nail that I will have to come up with a solution of how to rid unless there is some way of getting Volvo to pay for a problem they know all about and have previously only half fixed only to fail again.

Thanks for info CLan, sorry unable to reply via PM , I will get onto the dealer , couldn't readily see the pipe T junction mentioned but I am not exactly MECH savvy.
hopefully they will see sense and do a full repair under warranty if not I will seek legal advice

keep you posted

I find these stories very worrying for those of us with VEA engines.

So far as I can tell mine has had the EGR and cooler replaced and, currently, I'm not having problems in that area. But I'm getting recurring P014c problem relating to soot build-up on an exhaust sensor.

Hi All

Thanks for the info it will be of help but at present I have hit a wall,,,,,,,, following another call from Stoke Volvo I have been quoted 1100 +VAT
I have explained the situation fully, also contacted customer services uk,,,, I cannot and will not pay that sort of money for a problem that is well documented as a manufacturing fault.
Really don't want for this to turn into a battle but fear I will have no choice , sad really as the car is great ( or rather it was) and had more than one Volvo in the past, ( 850T5R being the love of my life until I rolled it owe my life to that car so have the greatest respect and love of Volvo) but this experience is starting to dampen my ardour for this brand

you really need to drop into a different dealer with your problem , they may handle it more correctly .
