Some customers may complain about play in the lower part of the front seat backrest. The concern occurs mainly during stop and go driving. Sometimes the play is combined with a knocking noise that can be heard from the recliner area.

TNN87-40-2001-10-05 Title: Climate Control Module Recirculation Timer Function.

This information is intended to assist in better understanding the Recirculation Timer Function found in the Climate Control Module (CCM) in these models. The CCM has two recirculation modes: normal and timed. In normal mode, when the recirculation button is pressed, the system recirculates the interior air until the driver takes further action. In timed mode, when the recirculation button is pressed, the system recirculates air for 5 to 12 minutes, depending on outside air temperature, and then reverts to fresh air. Timed mode eliminates the need to manually revert to fresh air by pressing a button.

Note: Vehicles equipped with the Interior Air Quality System do not have the timed recirculation mode.

ACTIVATING/DEACTIVATING TIMED RECIRCULATION MODE S/V/C70 Vehicles: With the key in position II, press and hold the Recirculation button for three to five seconds.

- If both the green fresh air and amber recirculation button LEDs begin flashing, you are entering "timed" mode.

- If both LEDs shine steady, you are exiting "timed" mode.

Mode Memory: If the vehicle is switched off while recirculation timer mode is active, timer mode will still be active when the vehicle is restarted.

TNN87-49-2005-03-15 Title: Climate Control Module, temperature drop during extended drive, or temperature deviation between left and right side.

Cases have been reported of cars with temperature deviation, more than 7 deg F, between left and right air outlets after driving for a period of time. In other cases, the temperature dropped during extended driving.

If the vehicle is within the listed chassis range, follow the service procedure in this document. If the vehicle is above the listed chassis range, follow fault tracing as per VADIS.

TNN87-53-2007-10-05 Title: Air Conditioning System Odor / Afterblow Function

Under certain conditions, customers may complain about a musty odor from the A/C system. Activating the afterblow function will minimize this from occurring.

TNN87-54-2005-11-30 Title: Temperature Coming Out of the Climate Vents may Start to Cycle from Max Hot Back to Full Cold When Max Hot is Requested.

If the temperature knobs are turned to max hot, the temperature coming out of the climate vents may start to cycle from max hot back to full cold with a period of 4-15 seconds. No Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are stored. The number of steps on a temperature Damper Motor Module (DMM) may have increased from factory settings, causing the affected DMM to set a "not calibrated" flag to the Climate Control Module (CCM). This causes the climate system to self-calibrate over and over again resulting in the cycling temperature from the vents.

TNN87-56-2006-12-11 Title: Whistling Sound from Windshield / Dashboard Area, Passenger Side

If a whistling sound or wind noise is heard from the passenger side dashboard area of the cabin. One reason for this may be that the foam sealing between the body and climate unit (air inlet) is incorrectly positioned. The sound may vary in strength but is more audible at higher speeds; 50 mph (80kph) and above.

TNN88-41-2006-07-12 Title: Air Bag System - System Life Expectancy

Based on testing and experience since the 1980's, Volvo has extended the lifetime of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) components to be the same as the lifetime of the car.

This lifetime extension supersedes all previous publications concerning Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) component lifetime. Periodic inspections and servicing of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) components, based solely on the age of the vehicle, are no longer required.

The lifetime extension applies to all pyrotechnic components in vehicles equipped with Supplemental Restraint System (SRS):

TNN20-05-2007-01-31 Title: Procedure for Cleaning Engine Oil System Contamination. Models: 1999-Present

This TNN provides the customer with an alternative lower cost repair rather than engine replacement. It may be required to perform such cleaning if the engine has been contaminated due to the use of engine oil additives, use of engine oils that do not meet the manufacture's requirements, or not following the manufacture's recommended oil change intervals. Any engine related damage caused by the conditions stated above is not considered warrantable.

TNN21-13-2002-01-24 Title: Oil Weepage, Rear Engine Seal, Flywheel Retaining Bolts

The source of oil weepage from the rear of the engine could be the flywheel retaining bolts. The threaded holes in the rear flange of the crankshaft are drilled straight through and are exposed to oil inside the crankcase. New retaining bolts have been introduced with additional thread sealant.

TNN21-21-2005-08-15 Title: Engine may have a rough idle, DTC ECM misfire codes, rough running or lack of power.

The Customer may have a complaint of a rough idle, rough running, lack of power or the MIL on.

- Read out DTC's

- Check compression and do a leak down test with the engine cold.

- Check valve clearance on the cylinders with low compression.

- Remove the cylinder head and check the condition of the valve face.

- If the valve face is worn, replace ALL the intake valves, even if some look okay.

- Use ONLY intake valves with P/N 30637059.

TNN25-14-2003-01-09 Title: Inconsistent Idle Speed, A/C On Carbon deposits can form in the coolant nipple (vacuum side), located on the underside of the intake manifold, and the Electronic Throttle Module (ETM) bore on cars frequently driven short distances. This residue can cause idle speed to become uneven and noticeable to the driver especially with the increased load produced by the air conditioning compressor cycling on and off. This Tech Net Note describes how to clean the coolant-heated nipple in the intake manifold and the ETM bore.

TNN25-149A-2006-07-07 Title: Troubleshooting the Electronic Throttle System (ETS).

The fault tracing for ETS codes in VIDA has been enhanced to include more background information on Faults sub system and the criteria for detecting a fault. Where applicable if there are differences between the original software's fault detection criteria and the new ETS software (March 2006 and later) the differences are described in the fault code information.

TNN25-149B-2006-02-20 Title: Checking the Crankcase Ventilation System.

This TNN describes an update of the existing method for Electronic Throttle Body (ETM) replacement. Replacement must always be preceded by fault-tracing according to VIDA and TNN 25-149-A.

TNN25-149F-2006-03-16 Title: Electronic Throttle System Software

Beginning March 17th 2006 there will be an Electronic Throttle System (ETS) software upgrade available for the vehicles listed above. The software contains changes that will reduce driver disturbances by allowing the system to better differentiate between glitches or minor disturbances, and system faults. The upgraded software will also reduce driver disturbances due to idle oscillations caused by dirt build-up in the throttle. TNN 25-149A will be updated to guide service technicians on the changes. The fault tracing for each DTC in the TNN will give guidance on where it is appropriate to use the software as a solution for DTC's triggered in the vehicles current software. As the ETS software resides in both the Electronic Throttle Module (ETM) and the Engine Control Module (ECM), both will receive new software with the upgrade.

TNN28-48-2003-06-23 Title: Poor driveability after cold start on MY 02 5-cylinder non-turbo engines may be experienced.

Initial start is always good, but the following symptoms could occur after start:

1. Rough running / misfire during idle just after cold start.

2. Stalling when coming to a stop, most common during engine warm up but also possible with engine at operating temperature.

3. Hesitation / stalling during engine warm up when the vehicle is put in gear and light throttle is applied

These conditions can be caused by faulty operation of the CVVT function.

TNN28-49-2006-02-13 Title: DTC 250A, 2200 and 220A

Model Year 2003 and 2004 S60 and V70 cars equipped with Denso engine management systems may have poor drivability, hesitation or RPM dips.

30771287 30771288 30771289 30771290 30771291 30771292 30771293

30771498 30771499 30771500 30771501 30771502 30771503 30771504

Upgrade the ECM software as described below, then test the system using the "quick-test of the fuel tank system" via VIDA vehicle communication, fault trace any faults according to VIDA. If the ECM software part number is anything other than one of the above, the upgrade has already been applied, and DTC 436B should be fault traced per VIDA.

TNN 28-74-2008-01-03 Title: Engine Controls - Software Update for EVAP DTC's The diagnostic monitor for the evaporative emission system small leak from model year 2003 to present, has used a software function that calculates leakage based on a pressure inferred from the current consumed by an electric pump that pumps air into the fuel tank system. Our analysis has shown that the current consumption characteristic of the pumps electric motor which is part of the DMTL can change as the pump ages. This can cause a small leak to be falsely detected and the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (Check Engine Light) to illuminate. A new functionality has been developed which uses a new method to accurately diagnose the leakage status of the tank system, independent of any fluctuations or ageing in the DMTL or other components.

TNN28-145 Title: Recall - Software Upgrade for EVAP System Performance

Certain model year 2005 S60, S80, V70, XC70 and XC90 vehicles do not meet the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resource Board (CARB) for removing pollutants from the Evaporative Emissions System. The requirement only pertains to purge performance and does not affect the safety or drivability of the vehicle. However in certain cases, this may cause the vehicle to fail a state inspection or Smog Check test.

The corrective action will be a software upgrade of the Engine Control Module (ECM).

TNN41-01-2008-02-08 Title: Clutch Shock Limiter.

Note! If using a printed version of a TNN, first check for the latest online version.

MODEL APPLICABLE CHASSIS RANGE: S60 -679890, V70 -999999

Note! VIDA uses the three terms, "clutch control cylinder," "clutch slave cylinder," and

"throwout bearing," interchangeably. VIDA uses the two terms, "shock limiter" and "air vent pipe," interchangeably.

The purpose of the shock limiter is to gradually re-engage the clutch disc in high

torque applications in order to reduce the vibration/shock from the re-applied engine torque while changing gears. There is an improved shock limiter available and has been put into production after the chassis numbers listed above.

TNN43-20-07122002 Title: Adaptation Procedure S/V 70, S/V 40, and C70 with AW 55-50 Transmission

The AW 55-50 automatic transmission used in certain MY 00 S/V 70's and all MY 01 S/V40, C70, vehicles incorporate adaptive functions. If a software download is performed, the transmission or TCM are replaced, or the vehicle is new, an adaptation procedure may need to be performed. Complaints of harsh gear engagement and harsh upshifts/downshifts are indications that the adaptation procedure may not have been completed.

  1. In order to perform the adaptation procedure the ATF temperature must be within 65-110 deg C (150-230deg F). Accelerating the vehicle in Winter mode will help raise the fluid temperature if it is below 65 degC (150 degF). A stall test should not be used to heat up the fluid. Read the temperature with VADIS. The adaptation will not be completed if the fluid temperature is not within this range.
  2. With the ATF within the specified temperature range start driving the vehicle with light throttle. Using approximately 15% throttle keep a steady pedal through all the gears until 4th gear is reached. It is not possible to reach 5th gear with this pedal position. Repeat until the shift quality is OK at each gear change.
  3. Repeat step 2 with approximately 25% pedal application. Keep a steady pedal through all the gears until 5th gear is reached.
  4. Accelerate to approximately 45 mph (72 km/h) and decrease the speed by lightly applying the brake until the vehicle stops. This should take approximately 7 seconds. Repeat this until the quality of the downshifts is OK.
  5. Apply the brake and put the gear selector in the P position. Move the lever to the R position and wait 5 seconds. Move the selector back to P position and wait another 5 seconds. Repeat until the R engagement is OK.
  6. Repeat the procedure in step 5 moving between N position and D position until the D engagement is OK.

TNN43-27-2004-01-22 Title: AW55-50 Adaptation Procedure.

The AW55-50 gearbox relies on adaptive data to properly adjust its shift pressure. This data is collected and memorized by the TCM and then used to adjust shift feel/quality. If the adaptation is not complete, it may result in:

- Shift Flare: Engine RPM increases during a shift. This symptom often feels like the car has temporarily lost drive or the transmission is slipping. It is usually the 2-3 upshift that flares the most.

- Harsh Down Shifts: Harshness felt during a coast-down shift (zero throttle downshift).

- Harsh Garage Shifts: Harshness when shifting P-D, N-D, P-R, or N-R while at a standstill.

- Harsh Neutral Control Engagement/Disengagement: After coming to a complete stop in Drive, with your foot on the brake the TCM waits 2 seconds and then disengages drive to reduce emissions and minimize idle vibrations. This disengagement is normally smooth and isn't felt by the driver. If adaptation is not complete then a thud can be felt in the car 2 seconds after coming to a complete stop. When the brake pedal is released, the re-engagement of Drive should be relatively smooth. A harsh re-engagement can be felt if the adaptation is not complete. Neutral Control is present on all 2001 MY S60s and V70s. It is also present on nonturbo 2002 S60s and V70s produced before January 2002.

TNN43-28-2002-03-18 Title: Delayed shifts when cold

The 2001 and beyond vehicles with AW 55-50 transmission use an emissions feature known as Cat-Start. When the engine coolant temperature is low, the upshifts are delayed for quick heating of the catalytic converter. It is especially noticeable on the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. This is a normal condition which is referred to in the Starting and Driving section of the vehicle owner's manual. Once the engine coolant temperature increases, the shift points return to their normal level.

TNN43-38-2006-02-09 Title: AW55 Neutral Control Function

A function called Neutral Control is present on all 2001 V70 and S60 cars. It is also present on 2002 non-turbo V70 and S60 cars built before January 2002. When the vehicle comes to a stop, the Transmission Control Module (TCM) activates Neutral Control. Even though the gear selector is in the Drive position, a Neutral condition is engaged hydraulically in the transmission. Neutral Control disengages when the brake pedal is released or the throttle is applied.

When the neutral control function is incorrect, there are three symptoms that can be felt in the car:

1. After coming to a complete stop and keeping the brakes applied, a "thump" can be felt in the car. It is felt about 2 seconds after coming to a stop.

2. When releasing the brake there is a harsh or double re-engagement of drive.

3. When idling in 'D' range with the brake applied, the engine speed oscillates (fluctuates).

TNN43-40-2004-03-03 Title: Buzzing Noise from M66 Shifter, S60R/V70R.

Some customers may complain of a "Buzzing" noise from the manual shift lever in S60R / V70R cars. The noise is most easily heard when accelerating at high engine RPM (3000 RPM and higher). Applying light pressure to the shifter by hand will make the noise disappear.

TNN43-42-2003-12-12 Title: TCM SW Upgrade, 2-3 Upshift Flare.

MODEL/YEAR: MY 03-04 S60 / V70 / XC70 / S80AWD / XC90 with AW 55 transmission.

Model year 2003 & 2004 S60, V70, XC70 and XC90 cars with the AW 55 transmission may experience 2-3 upshift flare. This shift flare may be described by the customer as the transmission slipping; the car feeling like it was in neutral for a short time, the tachometer needle jumping up or the engine racing during a shift. Quality Upgrade software has been developed to minimize this condition.

If a customer has a complaint that matches the above description, Upgrade the TCM SW (software product number 30677036). This SW is very similar to the original SW in the TCM, so the Adaptation should NOT be reset to zero. The car should then be test driven according to the adaptive test drive found in VADIS.

TNN43-48-2005-12-20 Title: Coolant Contamination in Automatic Transmissions

The root cause for some automatic transmission failures is glycol contamination from the engine cooling system. Severe cases of contamination are easy to detect by a visual inspection: The transmission oil will have a milky appearance and there may be signs of oil in the coolant reservoir. Less severe cases are impossible to detect without doing a chemical analysis of the transmission oil. This slight contamination is easy to overlook and will result in a repeat transmission failure. A small leak from the cooling system into the transmission can cause driveability problems long before there are any visual signs of contamination.

TNN43-49-2006-04-06 Title: AW55 TCM DTC 010A, 010B, 010C Shift Solenoid S5 signal low, high or missing.

A likely cause for a DTC related to the S5 solenoid (010A, 010B, 010C) in the AW55 transmission on a model year 2004 or 2005 vehicle is a broken wiring terminal at the solenoid

TNN43-53-2007-11-09 Title: Auto Trans - TF80-SC Diagnostic Information Summary - Valve Body Replacement.

This document summarizes customer complaints related to the 6 speed Automatic Transmission (TF80-SC) and should be used together with the information in VIDA.

The Valve Body should be replaced to address the following symptoms:

1. Customer complaints about 2-3 upshift quality. The shift may be described as harsh, or as a shudder. The symptom is usually more apparent during the first few minutes of driving after a cold start.

2. Customer complaints of shudder when slowing down, just before coming to a stop. The symptom may also be described as a harsh downshift just before coming to a stop.

3. Neutral condition in 4th, 5th & 6th gear; normal behavior in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & Reverse. One or more of the following DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) may be present: P073400, P073500, P072900, and P089600.

4. Neutral condition in all gears except 5th & Reverse, usually with DTC P273300 set. DTCs for gear ratio(s) may also be set such as P073000, P073100, P073200, or P073400.

Note: Transmissions starting with serial number 06J and later already have the latest valve body which is designed to prevent these symptoms.

TNN43-55-2007-11-15 Title: Shifter stuck in Geartronic mode.

Plastic residue on the shifter fork (see photo below) may prevent the shifter from returning to D (drive) mode from Geartronic mode. This will also prevent the car from going into park or neutral so if the engine is shut off, the engine will not be able to be restarted.

TNN46-08-2004-03-10 Title: Oil Weepage from Angle Gear Vent.

TNN46-13-2008-04-18 Title: 5 Cylinder Angle Gear Leakage and Resealing

Oil leakage/moisture from the angle gear halves can be resolved by resealing the housing and replacing the seals. The angle gear itself does not normally need to be replaced. There are two reasons an angle gear should not be resealed and instead should be replaced:

1.) There is angle gear noise/binding while driving.

2.) There is angle gear backlash, bearing damage, or excessive pinion shaft play found

during disassembly.

An error message saying "Start prohibited, try again" will be displayed in the Driver Information Module (DIM) display and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) CEM-6C48 or CEM-6C49 will be stored in the Central Electronic Module (CEM). The engine will usually not start even after several attempts.

TNN37-35-2006-05-23 Title: CEM harness terminal corrosion due to water entrance in plenum (Instruction for new harness installation)

Various electrical function and communication symptoms may occur in M/Y 2005-2006

vehicles caused by wet corrosion in the CEM (Central Electrical Module) connector. The

grommet that seals the harness entrance to the Plenum box may not seal properly if it has

been incorrectly assembled. This may cause a number of different functionality symptoms and DTC's to be set.

Examples include but not limited to:

- Headlight on, even if ignition key is taken out of ignition lock.

- Warning messages in DIM (Driver's Information Module) display.

- Warning lamps lit up.

- Brake lights always on.

- No start condition.

AUDIO

(Radio, On-Call Plus)

TNN39-28-2001-09-12 Title: "Search" displayed on HU-80x Radio

Model: S60, V70, V70 XC, and S80

Reference: Vehicle Owner's Manual

When selecting a pre-set FM Station on an HU-801 or HU-803 radio, it is possible to have a "Search" message displayed for several seconds before playing the station. HU-801 and HU-803 radios use RDS (Radio Data System). RDS allows text information to be transmitted with the radio signal. The text information is then displayed on the radio display. When stations which transmit an RDS Signal are memorized, some RDS information is also memorized. If the radio signal is weak, the RDS information may be unrecognizable to the radio. When the radio is unable to decode the RDS signal for a pre-set station, it searches for the RDS profile, thus entering the "Search" mode. The radio will "Search" for the RDS information for several seconds (with the radio muted), then stop searching and play the station.

If a customer complaint is consistent with the above description, it is possible to avoid the "Search" mode. Since the radio is searching for the memorized RDS information, the station must be memorized without any RDS Signal. This can be done in two different ways, either:

* In an area of strong signal, disconnect the radio antenna and memorize the station. (With the antenna disconnected, the radio does not receive the RDS Signal, and therefore cannot memorize any RDS information).

OR

* When "Search" is displayed, memorize the station.

NOTE: Method 2 should be explained to the customer for future use.

TNN39-43-2004-04-19 Title: Grounding of Differential Electronic Module to Reduce A.M. Band Radio Interference

Owners of all wheel drive vehicles may report A.M. radio static or a crackling noise heard in areas of weak A.M. radio reception. The disturbance is especially noticeable during acceleration and can be related to the function of the Differential Electronic Module.

Upon request, it is possible to delete the DIM message "Volvo On-Call Plus Not Activated" which occurs after the VOCP subscription has expired.

TNN39-45-2004-07-28 Title: DELETION OF VOLVO ON-CALL PLUS MESSAGE, REMOVAL OF PHONE MODULE

Upon request, it is possible to delete the Driver Information Module (DIM) message "Volvo On-Call Plus Not Activated" which occurs after the VOCP subscription has expired. The Phone Module must be removed from the vehicle after downloading software as described below. NOTE: The software will PERMANENTLY change the vehicle's configuration. There is no provision to restore the Volvo On-Call Plus Telephone module if it is removed. SERVICE: Order and download the appropriate software product using the normal VADIS routine.

TNN39-49-2005-08-23 Title: AM - Radio Static on Turbo Cars, Caused by PEM. Analysis has found that the PWM (Pulse Width Communication) between the Engine Control Module (ECM) and the PEM (Pump Electric Module) can induce a whining noise on the lower frequencies of the AM-band.

Just curious - is this the total list of TNN's for the V70R? I checked here about a month and a half ago and there was another TNN listing. The TNN I am looking for in particular is for an adjustment to be made to the front passenger seat. From what others (including myself) have experienced, the seat shudders while driving at speeds from 60-80mph - enough so that it makes noise, which is what I'm REALLY trying to resolve. Does anyone have the specific TNN info for this?

Anyone who can help - thank you in advance, I really appreciate it.

I doubt I have captured all the V70R TNN's. I try to update it when I find another one. I think you are looking for TNN 85-26-2005-07-15, Electrically operated seat, minimizing movement. However I do not have any more details on it at this time.

remember everyone that those are the part numbers for the PDF files or brochures describing the TNNs fully. the actual Volvo TNNs are 4 numbers only. if you take those numbers to your volvo dealer, an unhelpful or unknowledgeable service tech might tell you "that's not a Volvo TNN and take a hike." tell them to do a search under that part number and they'll have all the information they need.

Thanks, fortunately I never had that problem with my Service Adviser. So they are actually just looking for the TSB#, which for example on TNN25-21-2004-07-21, the TSB # would be TNN25-21. It is hard to believe a Service Department would be that Anal! ;) No, I take it back. I believe it. :angry:

I will be accumulating Volvo TNN for the 2004-2006 V70R.

TNN25-21-2004-07-21

High Pitched Squealing Noise, Exhaust Touching Propeller Shaft

Top Speed Limit Correction- software update code P/N 8633830 to correct the speed limit problem on the US spec V70 R from 130 mph to 155mph.

Brakes Squeak- PAD PART NUMBER: 30645135. 1161-BG brake paste.

Starting W10 '05 a special "Vibration damper" will be available to prevent brake noise at the front . The part number 30748514 consists of a plate which needs to be mounted at the back of the caliper mounting point on the hub, behind the bolts.

Drawings indicate that the plate makes a more rigid construction for the caliper.

Greetings,

Well, I'm sitting at Volvo of Annapolis here in Maryland waiting for my baby to get it's first official "free" service completed (7500mi). Thank you everyone for the compiled list of TNN's. I pulled the ones that I wanted addressed and printed them out on a sheet of paper. Initially, my service writer (Lou) said he didn't want the piece of paper or the numbers but, interestingly, came over after a few minutes and asked for it.

As documented in a prior post, I experienced the incredible screaming/squeeling in the snow a couple of weeks ago. Lou says that they do not have the parts to correct the problem and have ordered them. I saw another post where a R owner was told they didn't have a fix and the tech pried the exhaust away from the propeller shaft which didn't sound too great to me for a fix. I'm hoping they have come up with a fix (he said a "bushing") to stop the problem but did say the tech could see where it rubbed. BTW, mine didn't stop, it did it as long as I was in slush!

The brake squeal was a newer fix (I think the one mentioned in my quote above) where they did a repair to the calipers to stop the noise. TBD if it worked.

I requested that they fix my top speed to 155 instead of 130mph, increase the heat on my seats and also that they dim my rearview mirror (noting that it required a download). I also provided them with a couple of 4 quart jugs of Mobile One 5W-40W. Lou indicated that the provided oil was a Casterol "Synthetic Blend" and I just decided I wanted to stick with pure Mobile One even though it comes out of my pocket.

After the repairs were done, Lou came to find me and explained that the tech had done everything except having to order the prop shaft/exhaust kit. Then he sort of beat around for a few secs and I could tell there was a "problem" coming. He said that the software for the rearview dimming and software for the speed limiter upgrade were both non-warranty issue and had to be purchased from Volvo for $39.99 each. I argued that the car was supposed to come as 155mph but he said no and I'd have to pay for it. He did indicate that the tech should have asked before doing it to see if I wanted to pay, but the damage was done. He offered to cover the labor so I'm out some money for software. He didn't know if there were levels available for the rear-view but assumed that he could set it back to stock if it turned out to be too dark. He also indicated that even on the warranty software issues he actually has to "buy" them from Volvo and then bill them back for it. He also made me initial the work order for every single thing I asked for over and above the 7500 service standard.

Going to checkout now. Gotta pick up one of these "R" watches while I'm here ($75). Interesting the parts guy said the temporary roof rack/load bars were "$200-$225" and I asked him if that was at all negotiable since I could buy them online from another Volvo dealer for $125 and he said "no way". Amazing they won't take any profit over all or nothing. More later....

The dimming of the rear view mirror should be covered under the 12 month adjustment period. The 155 is a no brainer. Have you verified that you are limited to 130? Show him the brochure and tell him that it's fraud if he doesn't fix that one. Go to the General Manager or call VCNA. It's advertised at 155 and that shouldn't cost you a thing.

I bought my rack on line. My dealer wouldn't deal either. Their loss!

Thanks Spencer, I wasn't even aware there was a 12-month "adjustment" period. I normally don't buy new cars but couldn't get a used R for enough less to make it worthwhile so I bit the bullet and bought new. I don't have much experience with warranty service and have a pretty low overall opinion of service departments at car dealerships (which is pretty sad at these prices).

I posted my experience with the Mazda RX-8 and thought that the car stopped accelerating at 130mph but that was also about the limit of speed I was comfortable with the conditions so I wasn't sure. I'm not sure if I just backed off at that or if it backed off, didn't really feel a "shut off". I promise you it will be rare, if ever, that I get those opportunities to explore anything at or near that speed!

I asked to have it fixed assuming from all the posts about it that it might not be at 155 and, of course, not thinking that I would get charged anything. I figured from a prior post that I might get charged on the rearview download but wasn't aware of the adjustment period. Perhaps it isn't a standard adjustment?

On the 155 thing, if it didn't need to be upgraded, shouldn't they have been able to tell me that before they did the upgrade? Anyway, I'll have to decide if I want to try to get my $82 back. Anyone else experienced something similar where they had to pay for "software" for adjusting their car within a few months and first service time period?

I had my rearview dimming adjusted by my dealer under the 12 month adjustment period of the warranty. I also had my door locks changed to one-click unlock. Since the door lock change was a feature change to the car, I had to pay for that one. The rear view mirror adjustment is a fine tuning of an existing feature, which is why it should be free and covered under the new car warranty. The dealer should be getting covered by Volvo for the mirror adjustment. If they don't refund that adjustment, you should take your future business elsewhere.

Hey, thanks for the TNN Doug! I'm hoping that this is the same issue. If you come across the actual TNN procedure documentation, please post it here.

Thanks, again!!! :lol:

TNN85-26 and a couple others have been added to the list.

How would you know if the car is set with a limit of 130? (except to drive it that fast?)

There are only certain roads here in the Bay Area that I would consider going that fast.

I-5 from SF to LA.

Could someone send the link again for all the adjustments available for the car?

I am pretty sure the 130 mph limit was only a problem on the 2004 R. Your 06 should be fine. The available adjustments were covered in this post http://www.v70r.com/forums/index.php?showt...79&hl=7500+mile

TNN28-48-2003-06-23

Extended Description: Poor driveability after cold start on MY 02 5-cylinder non-turbo engines may be experienced.

Initial start is always good, but the following symptoms could occur after start:

1. Rough running / misfire during idle just after cold start.

2. Stalling when coming to a stop, most common during engine warm up but also possible with engine at operating temperature.

3. Hesitation / stalling during engine warm up when the vehicle is put in gear and light throttle is applied

These conditions can be caused by faulty operation of the CVVT function.

I found this description in a posting back from April. I have an 06 V70R and I am having a very similar problem as the one noted above. Has anyone else has this problem with their 06? Does this same TNN # apply to the 06? My service dept doesn't know what's wrong with the car or how to fix.

Thanks!

Although the symptoms may be similar this TNN is not applicable to the 06. If your service department is unable to diagnose the problem then ask them to escalate the problem to the Volvo Regional Representative. Volvo has specialists who travel throughout the region to address difficult maintenance problems.

The Regional rep was actually at the dealership yesterday and was working with the technician. Apparently he was going to email a few others and see if anyone else had come across this problem. Thanks.

Hey Doug - I was perusing the TNNs that you have posted, and noticed a 2006 TNN with steering/alignment specs. Do these jive with the specs that our Rs were re-aligned to when we did the new rear suspension bushing and SUM upgrade?

Also, are there any other TNNs that pertain to the "sidehop" that we should know about?

Thanks in advance, knower of all things R.

To my knowledge TNN60-08-2005-03-23 is the only TNN that pertain to the "sidehop" .

I have spent a lot of time, adding, editing, and reorganizing the TNN list. I reviewed over 460 possible TNN's ;) applicable to the V70 and have listed those I believe are most useful. In addition, where possible the TNN "Details" provide the actual documentation provided to the dealer. Let me know if the reorganization is helpful or if you have suggestions to make the list more useful.

Thanks Doug, I had noticed that it was getting cluttered.

Suggestion...make a link in the '98-'00 forum? Most of the TNN's apply to the newer R's, but some (ETM, Neutral Stop) apply to the earlier cars only. Might be a lot of work to create separate ones.
