Aftermarket radio install

I have a 2009 s60. I'm looking at installing a aftermarket headunit. My stock headunit is the HU-850.
My question.. do I need to take the car to the dealer if I install an aftermarket radio ? Has anyone installed an aftermarket radio in their newer Volvo ?

Flashing arrow

I've had no back up lights so I decided to take out the PNP switch and take it apart and clean it up. Now.. I have a flashing arrow which I didn't have before.
The car will start in park and neutral. Any ideas why the flashing arrow has come on ?

You can usually rent a pressure tester that would simulate the cooling system under pressure so you can see if you have any external leaks. If you don't have any, another option would be too pull each spark plug and check if there is any c...

Honestly.. if you can spend 5k to fix or buy another I would buy another. You can find a lower mileage probably in overall better condition car for the money. You could look at another 850, or a R, or move up to a S60 turbo.

Re: 1997 850 cruise control stopped working

checked everything on mine no luck, still not working. If you have a bad ABS module will it cause the cruise to quit working as well?

Re: 96 volvo 850R a/c relay

the relay is located behind the glove box. You can squeeze the tabs on the relay socket and it will drop down and you can inspect the wiring..

Re: 1996 850 Has spark, compression, fuel, won't start

the car needs to be running for the cam sensor to throw a code. I had a no start issue with mine, replaced the cam and crank sensors and what fixed it was the coil. Have you tried it yet ? Having spark doesn't mean its enough, what color is the spark ?

Re: 850 T5-R Auto high rpm power?

I was watching his stock gauge and I know there not accurate but its going pretty far over in the white. Stock should only be around 10 lbs for a few seconds then drop back, if he is boosting 15 lbs. its over boosting isn't it ? for stock...
