Re: Looking at 2009 S40... common problems?

I just bought an '09 S40 2.4i for my daughter's first car with 104k. Was told that it spun a bearing, so I only paid $300 for it. I found a short block w/ 75k miles and put in new bearings and rings and had the head redone. I could see that previous owners never took care of the PCV box, so that was...

Re: Cam alignment issues after cam seal replacement

I’ve tried 3 different ways of setting the vvt hub (Vida, one I found on MVS, and another way described on Swedespeed). I’m thinking that the hub may be messed up so I’m installing a new vvt hub today.

Re: 1999 v70T5M P80 serpentine belt life, interval, actual practice

I changed it when I first got the car at 94k, I don’t know if it was original. It’s 5 years later and the car has 235k. I’m replacing cam seals, tb, and wp, so I’m throwing a new serpentine on in the process. It’s not showing any cracks, but I figured it is cheap insurance.

Cam alignment issues after cam seal replacement

Question for those much more experienced than I with setting timing belts on a 99 2.4 LPT w/ VVT. I needed to replace cam seals so did the whole job with timing belt and water pump. I set the VVT hub as per Vida- bring outer ring to CW limit, align with mark 1 cog before the mark, tighten to 88 ft/l...

Definitely a noticeable improvement over the other HU.

All fixed! I just went back out there and sure enough the 10 pin connector just didn't come up with the others. Thanks for the help.

Re: Installed SC901 and 4 x 50 Amp, no sound except for dash

Here is a complete harness, without the Dolby option. Basics are, the 2 cables that used to plug into the back of the standard radio/HU connect to the amp cable instead and basically run to the amp and then back to the HU (the SC-900/901 do not have internal amps). Below is a complete AMP harness: ...

Re: Installed SC901 and 4 x 50 Amp, no sound except for dash

When it is all hooked up the 10 pin harness from the car is not used, correct? Good News! That’s where the outboard amp ties back into your 4 corners of speakers, so you’re day is gonna get a whole lot better when you plug it in. :wink: I thought so, but I don't see where it plugs in. Am I missing ...

Re: Installed SC901 and 4 x 50 Amp, no sound except for dash

Thanks, I did try reconnecting everything as well as having it just sit in the hole versus pushed in place.

I haven't tried using the amp with the other HU, I can switch it out.

Installed SC901 and 4 x 50 Amp, no sound except for dash

I've tried searching for an answer, but couldn't find anything. Last fall I purchased an SC901 HU and factory amp. It came with a factory wiring harness. I finally got around to installing today. When all hooked up, I only get sound to the dash speakers. I think I have the harness connected properly...
