Re: Ordered iCarSoft V 2.0 Reader

I haven't tried anything complicated with it yet. I'll see if it can do the seat-sensor thing in my other thread soon. I will be very happy if it can do that.
It is very easy to use - just plug it in.

Re: Passenger Airbag Off

Does the seatbelt have anything to do with it? Why does undoing and redoing it fix it?

Passenger Airbag Off

I keep getting Passenger Airbag Off when there is a person sitting there. Usually undoing and refastening the seatbelt fixes it, but it really gets annoying.
Does anyone know a fix for this? Thanks!!!!

Re: Complete car rewiring with module delete possible?

Yes this could be done. It would take a huge amount of time, cost a huge amount of money, and require expertise in both the new system and the old system to a level possessed by almost no one. It would probably be easier to just build a car from scratch that did what you wanted it to do. * the airpl...

Re: Anti Skid Barely Runs Help

Thanks - I'll hook up the iCarSoft reader and see what I get. Whatever triggered it did not set off the CEL, but maybe there still is a stored code.

Anti Skid Barely Runs Help

Yesterday I started my car and it was banging and shaking like it was running on 2 cylinders and would barely move. An ANTI SKID error popped up as well.
I gave it a Microsoft Repair (turn it off, turn it back on) and now it drives fine. Any idea what is going on here :?

Re: Position Light Out

Update - one of the tail lights is actually out now. The warning still comes and goes erratically with seemingly no relation to the bulb actually being out :?
Time to replace the bulb and see if that is the end of it.

The first model year for the new V90 is 2017 just one year later then your V60.
I wish - about twice the price of a V60! It is a sweet car 8)

Re: Position Light Out

It seems to have fixed itself for now and I didn't even whack it. I can't see how to reach the city lights without taking the car apart, is that even possible? I had to take the front bumper off and the headlights off to replace the little bulbs that are the orange corners of the headlights. Some lo...

Re: V60 vs V70

I would much rather have an AWD V70 than a raised-and-Outbacked XC70 of whatever drive configuration. YMMV, but for me I like the esthetics of the pure wagon, not the "crossover". Oddly enough I had no idea Volvo made different V70 series mirrors and have an XC mirror on the right side,. It is about...
