You'd think it was Xmas with all these lights on...

So the other day I'm driving and I put the car in first at a stop sign and all of a sudden I get 2 CELs (ESP Failure and Stability Control Malfunction) as well as a Low Oil Pressure alert and the car goes into limp mode (No Boost). I immediately pull over turn off the car and check the oil cap which was very securely on. I start the car again and it runs fine until the next stop sign. All the CELs come back and my car again has no boost. I then drive my car to my mechanic for a scan and it comes back with 15 CELs. He then clears it and the car runs fine…until I get to a stop sign and put back in first gear. My mechanic is a 16+ yr saab tech and he can not figure out what the deal is. On the verge of taking the 9-3 to the stealership for a full diagnostic. Anyone ever have similar issues before I get robbed $240? 2006 2.8t 6 speed. Any help is greatly appreciated.:banghea d:

Sorry. Impossible to help without all the fault code numbers and more specific symptoms. It's common for newer cars to throw multiple fault codes when it's actually one symptom that triggers others.

Be careful taking it to the dealership, you'll likely get recommended to buy a new Volvo....
(ok..my one joke of the day)

Please carry on!

I had a 2.8 v6 set 27 codes once, it was one o-ring and a dirty throttle body that needed cleaning hahaha. Good luck figuring this one out, as Drew said, on a lot of new cars multiple fault codes can trigger others. We refer to them as sympathy codes lol.

Update:

Brought to dealer and they want to replace every part the fault codes set off. Starting with the MAF and Pedal Position Sensors.

In case anyone was/has watching this thread, I decided to change my battery and everything returned to normal. I even got the car scanned to double check and everything is ok at this point (one week since the battery replacement). Back to getting this slaab on track!!
