So I'm driving home tonight and WHAMMO I hit a nice pothole (FFX County Parkway South between Burke Center Parkway and Ox road) and about 10 seconds later...blip, on comes the "Chassis Settings Service Required". <p>"Hmm", I think. "What have we here"? So I do a bit of experimenting and find the following:<p>1) 4 C light (Comfort Sport Advanced) still lit, which is what happens when I pull the wire off the rear accelerometer. <p>2) Unlike when I pull the wire off an accelerometer, pressing the 4C buttons toggles the light through comfort, sport, advanced. Hmm. <p>3) Cycling through the settings changes nothing but the light. I am in my "default" mode, same as when I pull an accelerometer wire. <p>4) One strange thing....when I got home I turned the car off and back on. The light was out. Later I went out again and the light was still off.....until I drove off, that is, at which point the light came back on. When I got back in the car to go back home, it did the same thing. Clear until moving. <p>So I'm guessing that I lost either a front accelerometer or another sensor from the front? <p>Wheel speed sensor would have given me the "Anti-Skid Service Required" message. <p>Strange.

I had this issue check your front strut one of the wires may have ripped out from the bottom of it! If it's 4c I have dealt with it, my car would do this after I hit a bump and would start no message then drive and message appears. Good luck now maybe more of you will join me in my quest for eliminating the use of these struts and searching for aftermarket suspension while maintaning chassis settings. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I am very pleased with my visit this time too. Josh took care of me and he was very communicative and got everything done with the exception of the seat leather. Looks like I need to talk with Volvo Customer Care on it this time.<p>Sorry too late on the Magoon thing, but I'm with him no matter what he has to say about the S40 its a hunk of crap as far as the interior goes.

Don Buyers S40 loaners smell like crap because they never clean them. My car has never been cleaned once when going in for warranty work.

I am just looking for a window of opportunity (rare these days with number two only being 7 weeks now) large enough to yank the head lights and paint them. The exhaust tip is going to be taken care of tomorrow.<br>
