My daughter is having an issue with her 2009 XC70
When the vehicle is first started in the morning and still in "Park" the engine light remains on and the message "Reduce Speed or Shift Up" appears in the centre of the tacho below the temperature indicator. The engine initially runs at between 1500-2000rpm reduciong to between 600-700rpm and idles very rough. When turing the know on the turn indicator the engine light goes off and the message disappears. When "Drive" is engaged and the vehicle moves off the engine still runs very rough as if it is being starved of petrol. After a few minutes driving the engine runs normally. At the 45000klm service the dealer was not able to locate a cause and indiated that they has not encountered the problem before. The problem has continued and the dealer has made enquiries of Volvo Australia and received the response "it was not a known concern" and suggest it be checked on the system checker.
Thanks in advance for any assistance in resolving the issue through this forum.

it can be a throttle control module needing an update,as that was a dealer update to be done for free,the other thing ,can be a sticking idle control valve, needing cleaned. but you should get the codes first ,as the car will tell you what is wrong.

Prior to having the vehicle checked a couple of more matters came to light - the drivers window would not always respond correctly when opening and closing and the vehicle would on occasions refuse to start when the key was inserted and the start button pressed. The servicing dealer connected the vehicle to VIDA and it returned a number of faults - all relating to the battery. On inspection it was found that the battery was weeping around the negative post and severe acid corrosion had worked its was up into the plastic protective coating of the negative battery lead. No other faults were detected. A new battery and negative lead have been fitted. Hopefully that will resolve the initial issues and subsequent ones.
Thanks to danielm 84958 for offering advice.

Following my earlier post - unfortunately the issue of the message was not resolved by the fitting of a new battery. The dealer has contacted Volvo Australia who indicated that they had no idea what was causing the problem - never experienced it previously. Thye advised to get the vehicle back to the dealer to again be put on the VIDA to see if anything new now shows up with the codes.

The dealer followed all of the rqeusts from Volvo Australia however the issue of the message on the instrument panel continued to appear. Further photos were submitted to Volvo Australia who I believe in conjunction with Volvo Sweden decided to try a replacement Engine Management Control Unit. Their initial suggestion was to for the dealer to locate an identical vehicle remove the unit and place it in our vehicle. Needless to say this was not possible and after speaking with the Customer Service Department I was advised that new unit would be fitted to the vehicle. This has now been done and we await the results. The person I spoke with in Customer Service advised me that they did not have a bottomless pit of money to spend fixing the problem, even though it was still considered a warranty issue - obviously she is not aware of their legal responsibility.

Following the fitting of a new EMCU in February 2013 all appeared to be going well until last Sunday 5 May when the message once again appeared on the dashboard. I was in the vehicle at the time and observed that when the start button was pressed, the vehicle kicked over and ran very roughly as if starved for fuel or missing on a cylinder. When turned off and started a second time it ran normally. Looks like back off to Volvo Australia through the local service agent for more suggestions as to a solution to the problem.
