Re: Will start but won't stay running Topic is solved

The P0422 is probably not related to running problems. It's thrown when the catalytic converter (monitored by the downstream O2 sensor) exhibits below threshold capacity to store oxygen. However, seeing that code very likely does NOT mean you need a new CAT. I've seen it twice on my car in 5 years, ...

Re: Dim issues

Sounds like typical symptoms of DIM failure. I would guess that you were on the right track, but failed at fixing it. Now the original DIM has been tinkered with, seeking professional help has become more difficult, but may still be worth trying. Replacing the DIM is another option, but you need to ...

Re: High Beam/dashboard lighting issue

I'm thinking either DIM failure - your 2003 is in the range for this, or a problem with the cabin light sensor located on the radio unit face - located at the bottom in between the two knobs - try covering it with you finger see if the light is still dim. As the dimming level is controlled via CANB...

Re: Relay activating

Mike, 'Full Editor & Preview' is shown just south of the text box I'm just typing into ('quick reply'). Try to obtain the wiring diagram online, it has the names and functions of all the relays. If you cannot find it send me a message. The topmost relay in the left row of the REM (rear electronics m...

Re: Melt wiring harness now all kinds of problems

Woah, tough luck, I hope you get this resolved. Start with a careful analysis of damage not only in cables, but also hoses, connectors etc. As for the codes, I would suspect: p0118 - possibly short circuit because of melted cable to coolant temp sensor. Check with multimeter or look at live data fro...

Re: seatbelt not pulling out... Topic is solved

There's no software in the seatbelt. However, there's a pyrotechnical belt tensioner which is triggered electrically. There should not be need for programming anything. But do take good care (disconnect battery, wait 5 min), use Loctite and proper torque (Haynes says 48nm, 35 lbf ft), and dispose of...

Re: 2004 XC70 D5 long start

kekec01, the diesel cars are quite rare on this forum so this might not be the best place to get diesel-specific help. The only code that could be relevant to running issues would be the boost pressure control one, but surely you are aware of that already. Having cleaned the MAF does not rule it out...

Re: Strut bar brace mounts?

Glenn, the bar can be turned a bit with little force, that's perfectly normal. I also found that amount of play suspicious, so I replaced the left and right mounts, but the new ones were just the same :roll:

Re: Air is not blowing from vents...sometimes

Given your readings, I would rule out the evap Sensor. Mine was crazily off, yours seems quite OK but I also do not know the tolerance. Also the symptoms are different. My problems were definitely caused by the evap freezing which does not seem to be the case here. VIDA has a function to calibrate t...

Re: Air is not blowing from vents...sometimes

There's actually a thread that has the relevant info, along with a hint how you can find the resistance. There had to be, because finding the clue to that sensor here at MVS and consequently solving my climate control issues by replacing it was what brought me here in the first place :D https://www....
