Re: 99 s70 died on highway : multiple codes

Thanks guys, I got my battery up to 12.4 volts and I plan to test everything again. Then I will replace all the major wires as a precaution since they are 20 years old now. I took my alternator out already so I could have it tested at a shop. I found out that they can't test this alternator outside ...

Re: 99 s70 died on highway : multiple codes

Ok. I put the battery on a small charger. Got it up to 12.00 volts. I know that's kind of low but it's only a small charger. While it was charging, I cleaned all terminals with brake cleaner and sandpaper. They looked good but I realize visual inspection isn't the final word. I then hooked battery u...

Re: 99 s70 died on highway : multiple codes

Upon further research (other postings and Robert's video) all signs point to issue with charging system

More info to follow.

99 s70 died on highway : multiple codes

Hi folks, My 1999 5 sp base s70 left me stranded and in need of a tow today. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what happened. 3 weeks (or so) ago: Did proper shim fix on AC. Had to take off alternator. Put 500 miles on car since then and it's been fine. 2 days ago: Landed in philly with sons...

Re: 1999 2000 MY - The "Bastards" Draft Info Thread

MY 99 and 00 S70s can use an antenna from an MY 98 but you have to use some parts from your 99/00 on the 98 antenna. You may have to swap over: a) drainage tube: tube on MY 99/00 are longer b) antenna mounting bracket. This bolts to bottom of antenna. Comes off with two bolts. c) the outside nut and...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky)

The antenna on my 99 s70 was no longer retracting so I decided to swap it for a fully functioning antenna from a 98. And I discovered yet another difference between 98s and the 99-00 models. The antennas are the same, but the drainage tube at the bottom of the antenna, the antenna mounting bracket a...

Re: Question on timing post 98 cars

Ah . thanks. I wasn't thinking about the position sensors. Thanks. That clear things up.
Does that mean the ECM makes the system self adjusting in the case of minor variance? Is that the right way of thinking about it?

Question on timing post 98 cars

I have been reading a few posts recently about the timing being off by a tooth or so. It made me reason I don't fully understand how our 99 and later cars are timed. In some brands of cars with distributors, you could adjust the timing with a timing light and rotate the distributor until you had the...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

. So I stuck a rare earth magnet inside my glove this is Huge ! I had a few false starts with this idea as I was trying to hot melt glue or tape the magnets to some stick or rubber hose but it wasn't working. I then started thinking of some way I could attach it to my glove so I could just use my f...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

This weekend I tackled an AC clutch re-shim on my 1999 s70. I had the classic symptoms of AC being cold for a few moments and then it would get warm. I measured the gap and it was greater than my larger gauge which was .866 mm. The job wasn't too bad. I basically followed many of the online videos f...
