Re: Low beam non working

What I was referring to as the 'socket/plug' is what you pictured. That appears to be ok as you already tried switching those L-R. The HID controllers (GDL MASTER, GDL SLAVE) are 'somewhat interchangeable' in that the controllers mounted into their plastic mounting bracket/vehicle wire harness conne...

Re: $100 cheaper then GROM Aux audio devices...

I've got one of those. It works ok. Sound quality is acceptable. On my radio, HU650RDS (without the selector knob) you can only set up one folder with up to 999 song files in it. While playing, the display on the radio doesn't display the first digit on file numbers 100+. On radios with the selector...

Re: Low beam non working

Interestingly the left and right ballasts have different part numbers. But that could just be a physical/fittment difference. Try switching the lamp socket left to right and see what happens. After glancing at the P1 HID diagram, the other fuses showing in the chain, if they were out, would result i...

Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

I cleared it off, warmed it up, then decided to put off driving it until tomorrow. The road doesn't look bad until you get get out there and it's a sheet of ice. A neighbor drove past with a freshly mushed front bumper and I chickened out.

Re: Discount Tire saga - one slow leak

I feel fortunate to be within driving distance of Tire Rack HQ. I don't bother driving 30 miles just to get a tire patched though. I just get it done at the local garage for $10. I can't remember the last time I had a broken/slipped belt or sidewall damage which would necessitate a trip up to South ...

Re: 2006 S60 Volvo Oil Cap With Castrol Stamp Topic is solved

My 2006 has the Castrol logo on the cap too. Volvo likely paired up with them on the race circuit during that time - you know - cross marketing agreements and such. Probably in 2006 also. - http://www.volvohowto.com/volvo-s60-10-v60-xc60-v70-08-xc70-08-s80-07-engine-petrol-diesel-recomended-oil-spe...

Re: DIY: 2005 Volvo XC90 Thermostat + ECT without removing PS Pump

Old thread I know. On a side note, I'm running a little experiment with the Gates TH35991 sourced from Europe. Gates updated the design on this thermostat, it now has a rubber seal that actually looks like a better way to do it (to me) than the OE thermostat's rubber seal that gets old and brittle, ...

Re: Perplexing Misfire. Only when started warm

Considering your last post (no start first two tries, then started right up). I'm assuming the hood/bonnet was open. Check the crank and cam position sensors. They're hall effect sensors with an internal magnets. Those man made internal magnets lose magnetic flux as they age. The hotter they get, th...

Re: Can I Switch An ECM?

Recheck what yagger said. You need a dice and a laptop with an internet connection (but don't necessarily need to mess with installing VIDA?): sounds like he knows a way without needing access to the original vehicle/key/transponder. Yagger if you can confirm the above it'll be nice to know for futu...
