Engine and transmission service message! 2003 xc70

Postby Dempsy » Mon May 21, 2012 10:54 pm

First I try to start my car and it stalls and then turns over but does not catch so I leave it for awhile and then it starts but flashes 2 messages, service engine and service transmission!! what is going on.
Thought at first it is the fuel pump or relay but why would it start and flash those 2 messages?? just bought the thing. rrrrrr
going to hook obd 2 reader from buddy up to it but dont know if it will read the codes.
It did not have any messages till it fully started.

any ideas????????

Possible dead ECU, but i'd check all the fuses and connectors first

U0073 is a code for CAN network offline.
You need a VIDA or Autologic scan of the vehicle to see the full codes.
Generic code readers will not show all the codes from the modules.
