    thanks for the replies - they are very much appreciated.

    I had the battery tested and it passed. The guy doing the test said it came out as if it were brand new.

    Hi All,

    I still have my 2001 XC70 and it had been running perfectly for many years. Last night I went to take it to a car dealership to look at something new - and when I started the car up, the...

    Cool pic - what kind of boat is that? Looks like a 420 or 470 from the bow, but hard to say. I've driven those boats all around - they're pretty heavy beasts.

    Fixed it - with the car on, I rolled the window up and kept my finger on the up-button. Turned it off and kept holding the up-bottom for 10 seconds. Let got, restarted - all is well.

    BTW, I tried the battery disconnect procedure and letting the car sit unplugged for 10 mins - same problem.

    If I start the car with the switch held back, the window stays up. But as soon as I let...
  9. After reconnecting battery, window goes down on it's own when ignition turned!?

    Today I replaced my rearview mirror - all went well.

    Well, almost.

    The mirror replacement procedure calls for disconnecting the battery, which I did. After re-connecting it, the car runs fine...

  11. Drivers door electrical: no passenger windows, unlock, or right mirror

    At one point I noticed the controls on my drivers door started going. They'd only work intermittently. Now for the past year they haven't worked at all.

    Yes, if you simply transfer the whole unit over. But I am going to take apart both mirrors and only transfer over the new glass to my current mirror - so the electronics stay the same. The car won't...

    v70 rearview mirror same as XC's?

    Hi All,

    For the last two months I have been putting off replacing my rearview mirror, as I couldn't find a part locally, and didn't have a lot of motivation for tinkering in the summer.

    I'm now...

    Nova Scotians: Volvo junk yard?

    My rearview crapped out - has a big bubble that's slowly consuming the mirror. Great.

    I read about buying a replacement, swapping out the glass and transferring the electronics. Sounds fairly...

    In 8" of heavy east coast snow, the car struggles for sure. Although I find as long as I don't come to a complete stop, it's usually fine. The only time I have gotten in trouble was trying to get...

    I have occasionally pulled the e-brake when coasting in a corner and have found I can never break the rear loose. My old 850 used to spin like a top under those circumstances. I actually used to...

    Yep, our 2001-2002's suck at getting un-stuck from a dead stop. When you are already rolling, the car does a fine job at engaging the AWD. But from a dead stop it takes a lot of gas, and even then...

    Is the noise only when you shift between drive/reverse, or as you let off the brake and start to move forward?

    If the former, perhaps you have a sticking brake. My parking brake would stick at one...
