My son took my Volvo to the carwash, but when he returned this orange Emissions System light stayed on. There is nothing mechanically wrong with the car and everything seems to works fine. I've seen somewhere to unplug the battery and plug it in again after about 30 seconds. The problem is that this did not help as the orange light remains on while idling and/or driving.
The other problem is that I've noticed that the driver's and the front passenger's power window does not go Auto down or Auto up. The 2 rear windows still do. I even used the remote fog to auto down the windows, but only the 2 rears ones do go down and up with the remote fog. I took the car to a friend's business to check the diagnostic (OBD) and according to his OBD-II reader & scanner, there are NO error or faults. Will the orange Emission System light goes out after a while and the auto front windows rectify itself with the computer system because I unplug the battery?

This is the 1st time that this orange light stays on while driving and/or the auto windows give trouble since I bought this car new end of 2009. My odo (km) reading on this vehicle is only 129 000km (80 000 miles) and I had the 7 year maintenance & service plan and even service the vehicle every year even only doing between 1700km - 2200km (1056-1367 miles) per year as I'm using my SUV more often.
