Default New Volvo owner!

Hi All

Very much a new member here and a first time Volvo owner.

However I need a little help....

I bought a D3 XC40 20 plate last weekend.

Really like the car.

The problems are two errors.

- Start/Stop Support battery service required

- In reverse I get the message Park Assist System Temporarily Unavailable.

I have done around 400 miles in the car since purchase and had the support battery checked this morning - apparently it is fine 71%.

Am i missing anything obvious on this?

Many Thanks

Hi Andy.

Did you buy from a Volvo dealership?

In my experience the stop / start can stop working if the car has been stood for some time. This seems to be quite common during lockdown. It's a very small battery and I wouldn't have thought 71% charge would be enough. However, I had this problem on an XC60 last year and it went away on its own after a couple of long journeys. Failing that, it may need a new auxiliary battery.

Systems that are temporarily unavailable are usually due to blocked sensors (wet leaves etc), but in this case it could be a faulty sensor. You say it's a 20 plate car, so it's still under warranty. If this message continues, your Volvo dealership will sort it.
