I have a 2007 Volvo S80, that I am having serious trouble with. This all happened within a couple of days. First, the cigarette lighter wouldn't work. Not a big deal, replaced the fuse and it worked for a day and it blew again. Then the headlight bulb blew, replaced that and then the key got stuck, replaced the battery in the key and it was fine. Then when driving, a warning came on that said brake system failure and the car was going into safety mode. The car stopped and would not start back up. Towed it to a shop that couldn't find anything wrong. The Battery was disconnected. Key put in and started right away. Next day it happened again, BUT, this time the car wouldn't shut off. Had to disconnect the battery and about 15 minutes later it finally shut off. The garage again could not find anything wrong, We had the battery replaced. Ran fine for about 15 hours then the lights flashed again and it all stopped. Towed the car this time to Volvo who felt it could be multiple things and we would have to try every one of them to see what would fix it, (or not). The cost of replacing every system one by one to see if any of them would work or not would cost more than the car is worth. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any ideas?
