xc90 sometimes shuts off when put in park sometimes idles

Asked by Sep 22, 2017 at 12:38 PM about the 2017 Volvo XC90

Question type: General


Sometimes my car idles in park and other times it doesn't.

My son left the car in park took the key out and I think the car idled for an
hour. How come sometimes it idles in park and sometimes it doesn't? Was
the car actually running an entire hour or was it going off and on to either
cool the car on this very hot 90 degree day?

Thanks for any help you can give.

That may have fouled up some of the programming in the vehicles main processor, your best bet is to take it to the dealer have it checked out, this new it should still be under warranty, best to catch it now than wait until it leaves you walking.
