Re: 05 XC70 Text Message Window out

A little problem with my, new to me, '05 XC70. I have the yellow triangle, exclamation point warning light on. But, the text message window is completely on the blink.

Re: Why does VVT have to be "unloaded" before removing the timing belt ?

Maybe to remove any lash or play in the cam system, a bit of slop here and there add up, its called ganging. Helps to put the correct tension on the timing belt too. It establishes an accurate end point for reference. I transferred the timing marks to the rear of the cam sprockets, make sure to pain...

Re: 2001 Volvo S60 na

You read the voltage at the battery?
should be 14+v , might want to try reading it at the alternator big cable output.
Access is very limited, might be easier from below with car on ramps .

Re: Found 2000 v70xc parts car for 1998 v70xc that had a rollover

I would fix the parts car and move on from the XC, or learn to do body panel work.
Maybe both. !

Re: s60 2006 t5 baffled

I would suspect low fuel pressure after sitting overnite.
Try keying the ignition off/on a few times to prime the system before cranking the engine.

Re: New Member

Its mostly the same problems repeating, with occasional oddball failure.
A few techs post here and software specialists to help keep us from the dealerships.

Please tell me more about doing the following:
A dice unit is $100, connected a laptop with a download of VIDA is the most powerful solution
You can also buy VIDA on a USB drive, or preinstalled on a laptop.
Both require the DICE interface.
