Re: New ignition switch

You can try attaching the old key to the new key and start the car like that while you are searching for the long-term solution. If the immob antenna can 'see' the chip she will start

Re: POLL: Do you use your signals?

Turn signals are a must for me regardless of traffic density.

I use them whenever I am not driving one of these

Re: 2016 XC60 Engine Over Heating Issue.

Welcome aboard! I would see what the engine temp guage on the dash is showing when the overtemp message appears. Also, with a generic OBD2 scan tool one could read/monitor the coolant temp in real time. Did you ever see or hear the rad fan come on? Check if you have been loosing coolant (always chec...
