Re: Swapping a used modules works, they aren't crippled by vin coding Topic is solved

Interesting stuff! I'm trouble shooting a faulty 2002 s60 driver master window switch...the currant switch is only able to control the drivers window and nothing else. The other window all work fine from the switches on the same door. So with the info above i should be able to find used switch with ...

Re: 1999 awd driving characteristics

I've been driving this car less that 6 months and it had an alignment when it had it's safety inspection. Do these awd vehicles have the same alignment specs as fwd?
But yes it was on a computerized alignment machine.

Re: 1999 awd driving characteristics

Funny,, even at extremely slow parking lot maneuvers the front end gets pushed sideways when entering a parking space. I know the front drive is working because when i tap the accelerator it's the front tires that loose traction. But I guess it's the tires then.. because i figured with awd i wouldn'...

1999 awd driving characteristics

Hey all Just some thoughts here from a relative noobie to the Volvo not to mention my first AWD car. So to set the stage I've always been suspect of this 1999 s70 awd system and the other day we get snow here in southern Ontario and the road are a thick mix of melting snow and salt. I head out and a...

Re: awd failure symptoms Topic is solved

Hey there So tonight I jacked up the right front corner wheel and with tranny in neutral put a torque wrench on a wheel nut to see how much the viscous coupling would take...It seems angle gear passed the test with flying colors and viscous coupling slipped with a constant force of 40 plus ft lbs of...

Re: awd failure symptoms Topic is solved

Thanks Robert, Neil So I've never owned a awd car before so i'm not sure what performance to expect from one. As i expected the rear tires were not being driven, i found a snow covered slippery road surface asked my girlfriend to deliberately accelerate in an aggressive manner to induce wheel spin w...

awd failure symptoms Topic is solved

So i have this 1999 s70 awd that I've been wrenching on and when i bought it the previous owner told me he removed the driveshaft to the rear because the center support was worn and he was getting vibrations. My whole reason for buying this car was to have awd for the winter season..So i went ahead ...

p80 Headlight wipers internals

I know the headlight wipers are pretty much useless on these cars,,,or any car for that matter. And I know most of you have just deleted them and life is good. But I'd like mine to work as they should even if it's just for giggles. Now my left front wiper works fine. It's the right one that's giving...

Re: 2000 XC se V70 hard start long crank

Hey There So at position 2 the fuel pump will initially pressurize then shut down, correct? And at that point fuel pressure should be a stable 60 psi? I don't have a proper fuel testing rig but i've heard you can use a digital tire gauge? I say digital because that what I have ;-) Just want to be su...

Re: 2000 XC se V70 hard start long crank

Hey there
I'm experiencing similar issues with long cranking and initial stumble/stall with my 1999 s70 awd 2.4t.
But once the engine is running it runs flawless and rock solid idle.
there's no mil codes showing.
Was the check valve the answer?
cheers

Re: ABS sensor issues Topic is solved

hey Ian
Are you able to clear the codes with that new scanner? In my experience tone ring and sensors can be kinda fussy,,,make sure there's no rust flakes hanging around. Blow out tone rings and wipe off those sensors.
Cheers

Re: 1999 V70 XC Rebuilding the propshaft yourself?

The short answer is no you can't fix this yourself! EVER! You can service the cv joint ends yourself. But the center support hanger is a whole different animal especially since the shaft does not separate. I thought the same as you and went to driveshaft re builders in my area that said they could f...

Re: ABS controller revisited Topic is solved

Oh One last thing...along with reading ABS codes this Autel reads updated vehicle specific DTC's and what my old Autel thought was a P1551= "faulty barometric sensor" now comes up as 510f= "Vehicle speed sensor too high"

Re: ABS controller revisited Topic is solved

"1996-1998, the abs system won't trigger the CEL, 99 and up it will" I suspected my old Autel was unable to read these codes properly which is why i ordered a newer Md802 to read the codes just waiting for it to arrive. So it's possible then my check engine is being caused entirely by the ABS contro...

Re: ABS controller revisited Topic is solved

Thanks again
I compared the numbers on the scrapper unit from MidWest's info page and it was indeed pulled from a 1999 stc equipped s70 but unfortunately I'll have to wait to pull/clear codes til the new scanner arrives.
I'll head out to the scrappers and grab a different baro sensor.
