had to replace thermostat recently, at one point reaching down to flip the hood release inside the car felt the carpet was wet.reading the forums guided me to remove the carpets and about eight gallons of water!! the drivers side sun roof drain was clogged, I couldn't quite reach the elbow, doesn't seem as accessible as xc90. managed to cut the drain tube use an airline to blow out any obstruction which got the drain flowing again, the passenger side seemed ok. Put the drivers side carpet back to protect all that spaghetti whilst driving but didn't replace passenger side , waiting for the rear carpet/foam to dry out. So happy to drive in rain now, not! heavy rain on the way to work and I could see the passenger well forming a puddle. Seemed to be running down the bulkhead. Anyway next day fine weather had to drive about an hour away, everything fine untill not five minutes in to the drive back and I get every warning possible air bag, brakes, transmission, pull over and the thing won't shut down. Only option is to drive carefully home as the brakes were braking ok and it seemed like a sensor failure rather than actual mechanical. Driving along the speedo doesn't work but the tacho does, the auto isn't working staying in one gear, I moved into manual and it indicated in third, which wasn't too bad, kept the revs below 4500 and limped home, managed to shut it off by repeatedly tapping the button. Had some lunch , went back out side ,key in started up, one error message airbag, everything seemed to be working again. Didn't chance the drive to work, used my alternative. Anybody any suggestions? Has the water messed up the electrics is there anywhere else apart from the drain tubes to invite a flood ?

the water will have done this only way to deal with it was drain both sides under your seats.

thank you, I have removed all carpets front and rear, passenger side drain needed attention also. Problem I'm seeing now is that the bulkhead insulation is still soggy, pushing my finger between it and the bulkhead I can squeeze it like a sponge. Electronics are all around this. Same on the drivers side. I'm getting a code U0073 that is suggesting control module contacts bad, from the water , obviously Daniel. Thing is I don't know where to look for offending module/s to clean and dry. I took it on a short twenty mile run the other day and not far from home the speedo stopped I was getting braking/airbag/trans faults and eventually it slowed to a halt. turned it off and back on and it did restart but it was sluggish, then picked up. Was able to limp home then took a few attempts to shut it down. Any help would be appreciated. The dealership are not my preferred port of call but will be my last resort. There is a class action against Volvo in New Jersey for this but doesn't include the CX60 for some reason I'll be looking into.

water may be coming from your window rubbers ,try using a carpet drier on the under seal.
