Re: S90 no start

Sounds like the jumper terminal for Manual transmissions. This is shown as BLU M/T only on the wiring diagram. It would work as a PnP bypass on cars equipped with an automatic transmission.

Re: S90 no start

Not 100% sure on the 97-98 but .... On the 95-96 960 the relay panel was in the center of the center console. To gain access to you remove the ash tray. I think the security relay is on the other side of the panel you pulled them other relays from. You might try removing the trim to gain access. To ...

Re: Ticking noise coming from lifter on 99 S70 t5

Oragex If I where going try an aggressive dose of Seafoam in to unstick lifters, I would let the engine run for 5 minutes to insure the Seafoam gets to the top end and there is some penetration of the Seafoam into the lifters. Thereafter run for 5 minutes every hour because the fluids are going to k...

Re: P0101 in cold weather only

"I'm wondering if it's possible that there is a very minor vacuum leak somewhere, which appears in cold weather when the rubber/plastic contracts. Any ideas/suggestions?" Marginal leak in the intake manifold gasket that is only sufficient when the gasket is cold ... metal contracts when cold. When ...

Re: roof trim repaint options and opinions

Are the neighbors allowed to ridicule if they see what looks like you painting your Volvo with a foam applicator brush?

Tell them your not allowed to have anything sharper, that will shut them up. :lol:

The Bosch Pro Compression Tester from O'Reilly comes with a deep well adapter. http://smhttp-ssl-43434.nexcesscdn.net/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95...

Vida 2014D Times out 12/31/2017 23:59

Has anybody found a way to offset the date in a virtual machine? 2014D expires 12/31/2017 23:59.
I have dedicated hardware with the clock set back to 2014 and no network time and date sync.
I would like to move it to a virtual machine but I know it will time out at the end of the year.
