Engine swap

Can I swap a series 56 block to work on a series 59 engine if all the attendant bolt ons are taken from the 59 to the 56?

Re: Volvoguard system

I did get a new replacement from the stealer. They are the ones who claimed they could not program it to the car. Something about the slots being greyed out in the program. I did follow ups with them to no avail.
May give it another go with the stealer here in Newfoundland. See how far I get there.

Re: 98 V70 AWD left axle in 98 V70 NA non-awd

I believe I had seen an extensive article on the different driveshaft used throughout the P80 life. Mostly covering the AWD models. But, I recall seeing some info on the NA versus AWD and compatibility for the main driveshafts.

Re: Volvoguard system

I have a 2000 XC that the key fob has ceased to function. The dealer cannot program a new one for it, for some unknown reason.
I thought that if I could transplant the system from one that is the same year...it would solve so many issues.

Volvoguard system

What if...
...I took the control/receiver, key fob and keys from one vehicle of the same year and model. Transplanted it to the current vehicle.
Does it still need to be programmed? Is it viable?

Re: PNP woes

I had bent a pin while reconnecting the wiring harness.
When revisited the pnp...I noticed the bent pin. Fixed that. All was good since.

Re: Immobilized.

That seems to be the consensus. Whatever I did when I say on it.... I checked the circuit board several times. And again once I found my magnifier. No visible signs of damage. The software thing does beg several questions. The new software doesn't support the older models? Is it just an oversight of...

Re: Immobilized.

Well.... Went to the dealer. New fob. Programming. Apparently...the new updated software for Vida cannot communicate with my 2000 XC. Turns out my old fob is transmitting signal. Whatever happened that day is a mystery. But...the tech mentioned He had seen this before. Appartent failure of the fob. ...

Re: Immobilized.

It is the remote. Not transmitting signal. Whatever I did...I think I may have damaged one of the buttons or the circuit board. Battery shows 3 volts. The 56 lead in the starter relay. Ground that out and you're on the road again. Still not able to remote lock or unlock. An inconvenience at this poi...
