Handbrake fault repair required

Post by Michaelxc40 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:01 pm

Took car in last week for software update as handbrake fault came up on dash saying repair required, software was updated, driving along today and the same fault has re appeared.
Car going back in next week for further investigation, garage advised me to contact Volvo for them to provide me with a courtesy car.
Will report back on findings, anyone else had this or similar issues ?

Well third service visit today, yet another latest software update installed !!
Service dept say ecu showed numerous errors but non specific to handbrake, advised to go back if fault re occurs, seems they cannot raise the fault to Volvo if your car goes in and there is a software update not currently installed, only will they take it to volvo if fault re occurs and no software is available. The fact they do not know what exactly each update does does not instill confidence in it been resolved. Time will tell, it lasted just over 10 days before !!
