Weird got in my car litteraly after 5 min and noticed the car has no boost. I have a PPC kit and exhaust as my only mods plus I have had my maintenance light on for 3 days. What can It be? The boost selenoid maybe? It's noticably sluggish and very obviouse that there is no power.

Re: No BOOST? (zigger)

Common problem for '06's. It's a computer problem. I've had the problem, and several other 06 R owners. I bet your temp gauge is ready cold as well. Volvo knows about so it shouldn't take long to fix.

It is basically just a download from Volvo into your car that will solve the problem. The somewhat frustrating part is that this is occuring on a lot of '06 R's (mine and Chris' come to mind), but Volvo doesn't seem to want to simply download the software upgrade on cars as they come in for service, instead they wait until the problem arises. If your temp gauge is reading cold, I can guarantee you this is the problem. Once again, it is unique to '06's R's and it shouldn't take long to fix (uhh, download). The engine is going into a limp home mode by limiting boost to protect the engine from a problem that is actually not occuring. Computer glitch.<br>I believe the problem even popped up when R Salesman was taking someone on a test drive! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: No BOOST? (zigger)

Check the vacuum hoses in and out of the boost controller. If disconnected, no boost. <br>I can confirm, they do come loose. One does not come with a hose clamp from the factory. It is low pressure, so i guess that Volvo thought it did not need to be secured.

Re: (needsdecaf)

Happend to mine in June. I reset the ECU and it's been fine since. That was a mistake since I probably can't get the dealer to fix it until it happens again <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br> Zigger, you should go see your buddy at Villa.<p>LTA<br>

Re: (bb vign)

The most <A HREF="http://www.alldata.com/tsb/Volvo/1145602800000_1146466800000_TNN28-67/671.html" TARGET="_blank">recent TNN</A> lists the affected cars by chassis range (which is MY06 only 500000-552807). Your chassis number is the last 6 digits of your VIN. The TNN goes on to list the ECM s/w part numeber that require the upgrade. If your ECM s/w part number is not listed you already have the upgrade and it's something elese. If you have NAV you can determine your ECM s/w part number.<p>Mine falls into the affected chassis range but my ECM part# indicates I have the update. So in may case it's probably the ECT sensor or something eslse. Since resetting my ECU when it first happened it has not come back again.<p>...anyway, the Ziggmiester pulled fuese 6 and 19 last night to reset the ECU and then took off like a bat out'a hell with more BSR boost than you can shake a stick at <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>LTA<p><br>
