DEM-0007 Hydraulic pressure faulty valve

Post by Metallo »

Hi guys,

I ran the diagnostics on my XC70 AWD and got this error:
As a result, the AWD does not work, I tested it myself today and I could only see the front wheels spinning.

VIDA says the possible root cause might be:

1) Damaged pressure sensor
2) Damaged feed pump
3) Too low oil volume in clutch
4) Internal leak in the clutch

Three years ago XeMODeX refurbished the DEM Module and I also replaced the differential oil pump.

The question is: where do I start from? I would exclude # 2
How do I check the oil volume in the clutch?
I could clean the pressure sensor...

Any other results I could get from VIDA that may help?

Thank you for your advice.

Check Haldex oil level (add to the top then back out about 100...150 ml).

Pressure sensor can die too, as JRL said.
