Volvo Car Corporation started in 1927 in Sweden. The company was acquired by Ford in 1999, and it was sold to Geely Holding Group in 2010. Scan tools plug into your on-board diagnostics (OBD) system, and the tools pull up the fault codes, which will tell you what is wrong with your system. If the system does not define these codes, you can look up the codes online.
