just a question, are yours diesel or petrol engined? Mine is a diesel. funny bit is that after mine went into the garage today the first suspect was the ignition lock/switch. thats the third time I came across this feed. I'll keep you posted on the outcome, tho I think it will not be solved today.

regards Matt

the rather good news is that my volvo garage has found what they think is the culprit to my engine cutting out. there are no faults but there is a kind of an event log and this had recorded the two times mine left me sailing. from there they traced it to a dodgy wire which they told me is now fixed. the mechanic run it today for 50 miles and will do another run tomorrow (there is also my seat adjustment to fix) and hopefully I will have it back on saturday!!. I have found someone else that had the same problem and his too was down to a faulty wire coming from the ecu.
I will post more details after I spoke to the garage.

update on my troubles

right, 4 days and £324,- later and it seems the fault has been fixed. it was a wire coming/going to one of the injectors running through the wheel arch and there it had been rubbed off and shortened the circuit, causing the engine being switched off.
most of the bill was fault finding and diagnostic, the wire probably has cost £ 3,26 or so!
anyone having kind of this problem should let its mechanic check the wires!
