  1. Volvo wanted $5.95AU...local mechanic gave me wrong globe(screw in) and went back and got right one which is plug in as per this clip..$1.00AU...seems to have same brightness!
  2. So just clocked 240K and thought things running well finally and right rear number plate bulb gone! Found this you tube video to replace: Also testing my Aircon with new Fan resistor seems to only hit 4 and not as cold when switch on MAX COLD.....used to be freezing and running on 5 speed(Auto)
  3. So I got an Ebay ELM327......came with 2.1 Firmware plugging in the power lights face the pedals.... So I got it going and default Dials are Speed and Acceleration worked. My Boost psi and Throttle did not work(have a turbo)???? Got home and looked at this you tube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMYZNal9Wpk Found the other dials and have it setup for 6 on the phone. Have added MAF and Coolant. What do DIALS do you have setup on yours? Now I checked the logged\pending codes and it produced an Ignition Coil code....I just had them replaced....the mechanic did not reset codes? Show historic faults.....had none? Edit: So the Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work. Edit2: Will try this to clear codes....http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1249867 With Torque, try having the car such that the ignition is on, but the engine is not running, then touch the clear code button, then turn the ignition off. This should work to clear the codes. Edit3: The above clears the codes CONFIRMED!
  4. So the PO352 Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault(Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction) is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work.

  7. So The Fan Resistor cost $193.93 including GST.....but when I rang Volvo they said it was $180AU The 2 X coil pack that are Aftermarket cost $187 He replaced the Lead set aswell for $86.46 Charged me Freight for parts of $22! I noted he had topped up the coolant again....no charge.... Now I notice a black scuff mark on the back left corner of car on returning home This year alone its been over $2K AU to service and keep it going.
  8. Rang Local Volvo Parts centre $206.60AU Each !!!!! https://www.myswedishparts.com/oem-parts/volvo-ignition-coil-1275602/?c=aT05NzI1MjI1NSZyPWxheWVyXzE%3D $64US each above Have the car overnight!
  9. Told it is the "ignition coil" and he is going to replace more than one? This is what was causing the ECM error and the power loss?
  10. So today I drove to work with the ECM light on. Parked and worked. 8hrs later started car and no codes\lights on? Drove for 10minutes at 100kms and then a shudder and loss of power with the ECM and DSA lights appearing. Going up a hill I lost power and did not go down a gear? But the rest of FLAT drive home no noticeable change in driving home stop\start at traffic lights and average 60km\h. Fuel economy seems poor as well?
  11. This seems to describe my issue of error codes: https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=63038
  12. Drove to work today and nearly same spot the ECM and DSA light appeared and stayed on. Stopped at work and 8hrs later started to no DSA light but ECM remained on. Then when slowing to traffic lights the car "shuddered" and seemed like it would not stop or would konk out. Then a pause in accelerating from zero, but then returned to driving fine. Also the DSA light reappeared?
  13. Rang mechanic. Hoped in car and NO error codes displayed. Drove to petrol station. Fuel in car. No error code until 20kms from mechanic. Drove to mechanic and reset codes. Temp sensor again! Drove to work and home later in the evening, No error codes.
  14. Driving to work today BOTH the DSA and ECM light came on. Stopping had the DSA disappear but the ECM stayed on. This usually means the Temp sensor needs another replace. Hoping a reset will fix it and will aim to get it checked tomorrow from mechanic. Here is my youtube video of this occurring before: I have now done 236K kms
  15. So I took it in.....he used a machine he said was "Vida"(I asked for Vida machine to be used) it had digital readings but the codes did not look like the above pic(14\8\16 post) on this thread and I could not see VIDA anywhere as he flicked through to specs of car to Aircon unit? He said all the aircon system and voltages are correctly working and that "Vida" does not show it to be the "module" which is the "resistor" working or not working? The last replacement fix I was told Vida said it was the "relay" and was replaced in the box under the hood. So his diagnosis is that his "VIDA" machine does not show if the resistor is faulty and the only way to confirm it is the resistor, is to replace it, to see if it fixes the problem?? Booked in for the 31\7\17 to see if issue. Now I asked VIDA determining if the 3 lights that light up the "headlight switch" but mechanic says it does not show if an issue on Vida for the globes being out in that area. Later in the conversation he said he can check the main computer to see if that picks up a fault....I have replaced in the past and only the "green one" now works as the others have remained off for over 10 years! mmmmm Will I get this fixed within a year?
