Re: Cabin blower speed problem

Are you sure there isn't anything in the vent rubbing against the blower?

Re: 850 Radio Replacement - 1996 850

You have to leave the key in position 1 for a while. I dont remember how long but I left it on for a couple of hours and it let me Enter the code again.

Re: ABS code reading

Ahh, so it's Android only? I didn't see it while searching in my app store and the original suggested dongle is also not IOS compatible. I picked up a VeePeak (good reviews and such). If it doesn't work well for some reason I will just use it in my truck. My girlfriend has an old Android I can wipe...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Put my car through its MOT today, which it passed with no advisories. The tester even offered to buy it off me for what equates to roughly triple my purchase price. Tempting, certainly, but I'm not finished with it yet. Most people i tell about my volvo obsession think I'm a bit odd to like such a ...

Re: ABS code reading

The last time I ran ABS codes this is what the app told me. Its suggestive to me that maybe the module is bad.

Re: ABS code reading

Here is the link for android phones for the 850 obdII app. It can read mileage from the cluster as well as reset the service light and read ABS codes. Its takes a little getting used to. I also use the BAFX bluetooth reader. A little bulky but works well. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?i...

Re: Soon to be mine 2005 xc90

I still think the Rotella T6 is more robust for hotter climates. Since this is basically the same engine as my 850 I figured I could run the same oil and not keep 2 types in my garage. 5w40 has served me well. The old 850 manual said to use 5w40 for my climate but the xc90 does not mention it. I ca...

Soon to be mine 2005 xc90

Hello all, I have found a potential keeper that I will be looking at next week. Shes a 2005 with 2.5T @86,000 miles. Consistent but detail lacking service history. Owners manuel says to run 5w30 or 10w30. This is Texas for me. My 850 runs on 5w40 year round. Can I use the same oil in the xc90? How d...
