Product Description

Description

If you’ve noticed a check engine light on your 850 or 70 series Volvo and the ECM stores code 123 for the engine coolant sensor (ECT), here’s your answer! The ECT resides right underneath the thermostat on these vehicles which has been known to set a code for the ECT itself. The root cause is normally a thermostat that won’t fully close. The ECM looks for a 1 degree rise in temperature every 4 seconds as the vehicle goes through the warm up cycle. If this temperature increase is not seen code 123 is set. When the thermostat does not fully close, some coolant slips past it instead of warming up with the engine. This moving coolant does not stay still long enough to heat up in the specified amount of time and the threshold is breached, setting the code.

Replacing the thermostat solves the problem, although most repair facilities will recommend the ECT as well for good measure.

About Genuine Volvo

Everything IPD supplies under the "Genuine Volvo" designation are the factory original Volvo parts. These are the same parts that Volvo used to manufacture your vehicles on the assembly line. All Volvo supplied Genuine Volvo parts are made to specifications by Volvo and under their strict quality control guidelines. Our customers should expect the same high-quality when purchasing Genuine Volvo products which in the past were exclusively available as dealer only items. Volvo relies on other high-quality OEM manufactures such as Lemforder, BehrSachs, Bosch, Valeo, Siemens, VDO, Corteco, and many more to maintain its dedication to quality and safety.

In 2017, IPD announced that it was the exclusive North American distributor for Genuine Classic Volvo parts. We are proud of our Volvo heritage dating back to 1963, a reputation that is unmatched by others in the industry.

Many may not know this but Volvo in Latin roughly translates to "to roll".  The company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.  While the Volvo logo looks like the biology symbol for male, it's really the Swedish symbol for Iron. With a nod to its heritage in alloys, Volvo chose a logo that depicted a ring bisecting at one o’clock. Today Volvo is known around the world as one of the most iconic brands known for safety, longevity, and its enthusiast following.

IPD has been proudly serving the Volvo community since 1963. We are motivated to be the very best destination for your Volvo needs. Our customer and vehicle first approach means that your experience is our first priority. We have truly hassle-free returns, an in depth Volvo blog, and provide DIY Volvo guides and videos for many of our products.
