P0600 serial comms problem

Post by scot850 »

How many gallons of gas do I need to set this piece of crap on fire and put an end to my suffering???

Everytime I fix one thing another thing breaks. After warring with the P1670 error (replaced the antenna ring that had been destroyed by PO (How??), then got a P0352 cylinder B (#2) faulty new Volvo coil pack. Then P1670 came back on . Re-set the door locks and then all good. Backed the car out of the garage to swap out the other 3 cars winter tires. Go to bring the car back in today, and get a ABS/Brake failure/engine check light and no signal for the trip and mileage (same issue I had with the 'R' a few days ago and went away again). Ran car back into garage threatened it with a lighted match in the fuel tank, and left it in disgrace. Went out again and scanned with my basic scanner and only code that came up was P0600. Re-set it twice, and then re-started the car and all warning lights back off for now. How can I be getting so many random warning lights which I was not getting before. Yes I have done a lot of repairs, but have cleaned all the contacts carefully and then reconnected as I went. So what is going on?

How good is the battery? Low voltage on CANBUS is crippling

Battery is about 6 months old and I just re-charged it 2 days ago and ran the car out of the garage and back in, so only started twice! I will put my battery tester on it and see what is says, as I am at a loss as to why all the weird random issues.

Hi Neil,

I read through your other thread ( viewtopic.php?f=1&t=81868 ) for the P0600 issue, which I'm now getting along with an SRS light on my '00 V70 n/a m/t, and I was just wondering if you've had that code come up again.

Thanks for all your great documentation on your own 2000 V70.
