    ^^Winner winner chicken dinner :). I feel like an idiot, I forgot that I had removed the siren fuse about 3 years ago when it first went out. Replaced the fuse, did the 'configure siren' again, and...
  2. Resetting UEM/Configure Alarm after alarm/siren replacement?

    I was curious if anyone here had experience with "configuring" the alarm siren after replacing it? Mine was toast, the typical exploded battery pack scenario, so I got a new one from FCP Euro and...

    I haven't done anything today yet, but I'm about to go see why our XC70 wouldn't start for my wife this morning :), it's sitting in a parking lot where she left it.
    *edit*... apparently we have a...

    Pennhaven, I was mis-remembering my findings. The worse offending frequency was around 78-82, around 1800 rpms as you mentioned, which is right where the engine runs on the local 2 lane roads. On the...

    Check my original post... I actually did that with some success. I was able to eliminate the worst drone around ~120hz. There is still a lower frequency drone around 70-80 however that would require...

    If I had known, I would have just gone to a good exhaust shop and had the original resonator and muffler replaced with some quality aftermarket stuff. In the end that wouldn't cost any more $$. That...

    IPD catback exhaust experience

    So I bought one early this year because it was on sale (as it is again now) for a very good price and was much cheaper than replacing the entire stock system. My stock exhaust was literally rusting...

    It would appear that the relays solved the issue, the codes have not returned since swapping them. Where the BCM and SAS modules were greyed out in VIDA before and it couldn't communicate with them,...

    my parts should arrive tomorrow. The 2 in question are different than the others on the board.
  12. CEM-1a5e and CEM-1a5f, lots of warning lights

    I had trouble finding any information online about this scenario, so I thought I would document my troubleshooting here in case someone else runs into the same thing.

    My '04 XC70 started throwing...

    FWIW, I recently bought the FCP kit with Brembo rotors and ceramic pads. Not a fan at all of those brake pads, they just don't have the bite and response that I am used to. They seem very...

    my '04 has the bi-xenon lights, and I found that they were aimed too low, making it seem like the lights were really dim. I raised them a little and it solved the issue. You don't want to blind other...

    Welp, still driving perfectly today. I suppose I can conclude one of 2 possibilities. 1) The fluid level was the only problem, or 2) I have an intermittent problem that will show itself again.

    Yes, when the problem occurs it slips in any gear, including reverse. It will still shift while this is going on, if you gain sufficient speed.



    Yes, points taken. My experience with...

    Well, this morning it was 32 outside, and I warmed the car up for about 10 minutes before attempting to leave for work. It backed out of the driveway and drove fine with no discernible slipping. I...

    I did not check the fluid last night because it was nearly midnight and I was in my getting in the bed. It was also 34 and raining outside.

    Thanks for the suggestions folks. My situation has worsened, the wife called me a few minutes ago and said the car wouldn't move out of the driveway, so now it has become critical :(

    It is not delaying the shifts, it definitely feels like slippage to me or perhaps like the torque converter not locking up. I suppose the 'slipping' could be the converter and not the trans itself....
  23. trans slipping first couple of minutes when cold

    I found one old thread on here where someone described my exact symptom, and there was one reply saying that it was normal. I'm not so sure, so I thought I'd try to get some fresh opinions.

  25. 2500 mile road trip, and getting the XC70 sorted out for it

    I don't have a ton of cool pictures for a trip report, but I thought this might be useful for someone who is curious or concerned about taking a long trip in an "older" XC70.
    This summer my wife...
