    Wow - thanks!

    The funny thing is that it refers to the trip computer and not the odometer.

    It would still be useful for me if I could even change just the trip computer units (although it would...

    Entirely possible!

    However I still have not found any confirmation that the distance units can be changed via VADIS. I did get the temperature units changed from F to C this way though.

    The...

    Actually after I moved to Canada I did talk to a dealer in Montreal about this. He claimed that it would involve replacing the whole console above the steering wheel, which contains all the...

    Thanks very much for the tips - do you think the dealer would not be equipped to handle this? The car is still under warranty and they've been pretty good about fixing other stuff no questions...

    Thanks - I did disconnect and then reconnect my battery this morning, and as far as I could tell the sunroof worked fine without doing any calibration.

    Good to know what this is, though.

    It works!

    Thanks again -

    I disconnected the battery for five minutes and all was fine (i.e. the CD Changer is back).

    Followed the directives in the tech note, and after several lock/unlock cycles with...

    I also noticed this note says you need to calibrate the sunroof, but the note refers to another document. Anyone have access to this sunroof calibration procedure?

    Thanks,

  8. Blower seems blocked after prolonged AC operation (why is it snowing in my car?)

    We've had an annoying problem with the AC on our 2003 XC70 for quite some time - on long highway drives in hot weather, the flow of air out of all vents stops after about 1-2 hours. Needless to say,...

    Instruction manual online?

    The dealer kept all the packaging materials, including install manual that came with mine.

    I have Googled this, but come up with many off-topic hits. Anyone know of a link to the installation...

    Thanks -

    I will try to check the connections. I believe the dealer installed the adapter as described in the installation manual, which is over the driver (left) side rear wheel in the cargo...

    CD Changer "disappeared" from source list

    Hi -

    I have a Volvo iPod adaptor, which is appears as the multi-CD changer on my car stereo (will edit to add model shortly). It was installed by the dealer in our 2003 XC70.

    Normally this is...

    Thanks for this information. Do you recall if it was expensive? I hope they don't have to replace the whole control unit for that.

    Thanks very much for the detailed reply!



    For Canada, this is true up to $10,000 value. Above that and you pay 6% duty plus the GST(=VAT) plus provincial sales tax (when you license the car)...

    Good point - fortunately in the US and Canada the dial displays both miles and km, with labels for the units.

    If it's a few bucks, no problem (and they're bucks on either side of the border :)). ...
  16. Can odometer, trip be changed from miles to km through VADIS?

    This might be kind of a dumb question, and the answer is probably no due to the delicate nature of odometer readings, but I wonder if it is possible to have a dealer set the units of the odometer and...

    Another aspect of this that I realized is that if a car is manufactured in the USA or Mexico, there will be no duty or tax on importation into Canada due to the North American Free Trade Agreement.

    This is really interesting - it's pretty much exactly what I'd like to do, as it would save us all the inspections and possible future difficulties selling a US spec vehicle in Canada (odometer in...

    Yeah - I go back and forth a lot already and of course for temporary trips it's no problem. It's just that at some point I'll probably need to register it in Quebec and all this stuff will have to...

    Thanks for the reply -



    Hmmm. Are they late model XC70's, or old 240's and 850's? For older cars the "over $10k" might get you by. I think I know what the answer is going to be though......

    If the vehicle meets all the necessary requirements, you will in most cases still have to pay duties. Calculating the total costs must start with the value of the vehicle (expressed in Canadian...

    Hmm. Don't think we can go this route - my wife is Canadian and she does not have a driving license, so probably would not be possible to register the car in her name anyway (she's been meaning to...
  25. Thanks!

    bs2005ca, Raynald,

    Thanks for the sources of info - I'm definitely looking forward to moving back to Canada, although we'll miss Boston. The higher taxes in Quebec are *way* more than offset for...
