Yeah I removed that too. And for some reason a lot of paper straw wrappers.

Yesterday I was cleaning out my S70 from a roadtrip to Poland. Everything went perfectly fine and I'm still amazed how comfortable the S70 is after driving for 10/11 hours straight. But when I was done cleaning out the car and drove it to my parking space I noticed the lights on the ECC were flashing. Well, then read the codes you might say. But... how does one do that on a 1998 S70 with the B5252FS engine (not sold in the US if I remember correctly). It doesn't have the Bosch Motronic set up, but a Siemens Fenix system. It does have the OBD port under the armrest ofcourse, but what do you hook up on that port?

Look up flash code reader in the repair data base -an LED, a push button and a few lengths of hook up wire.

20 valves are 10 too many anyway...

My Autel reads the ECC codes via OBD on my 1999.

If you are getting good AC, check the recirc flap for correct operation, that is often an ECC AC problem

Fenix can be read with VOL-FCR, which means a homebuilt flash code reader will also work. Pins are the same as for Mortobic 4.3 if I recall correctly.

I'll be heading out today to the electronics store to make myself a flash reader. Any tips on how to check the recirc flap on correct operation?

Key on. Lift up the flap under hood, push recirc button and see if flap closes and opens when switch is cycled

The ‘00 V70 never fails to keep me on my toes. Most recently, it’s giving me a P0600 (serial communication error).

I didn’t do anything to my car yet but I picked up some parts for it today at the pick n stab. The plan was to collect a couple of pounds of BMW nuts and bolts but I stumbled upon this nice C70 convertible. Easy under 100K and a 2004. I have had some annoying brake problem for a long time now. Brakes require a lot of input force to work, pulsating feel in pedal sometimes etc. I decided to just pull it all to get the problem over and done.
Neck totally fried but the parts look awesome where they are sitting on a shelf in the garage :mrgreen:
