How do you turn the Volvo xc cross country headlights off?

The headlights are designed to be on all the time as this is a legal requirement in Sweden. It can be bypassed via the ignition switch harness by finding the power supply wire on the switch multiplug and isolating it. Disconnecting it here should not affect the main light switch operation. There also may be a fuse for the driving lights which is separate to the fuse for the main light switch. check the fuse box diagram may be listed as driving lights, aux lights or safety lights. If car is under warranty tampering may invalidate it.

What does engine warning code p2112 TAC system stuck closed mean and what could it cost to repair on my 2002 Volvo cross country?

P2112- Throttle actuator control system stuck closed.

The throttle on your vehicle is not controlled by a cable but by a actuator motor in conjunction with a sensor inside the accelerator pedal. This fault indicates there is a problem with the throttle side of the system. The throttle is either binding, slow to respond, completely stuck or has failed. Other possible causes include problems in the wiring (open/short circuit) faulty connection(s), or battery voltage problems could also cause this. I would try checking the connections to the throttle actuator, and if you are up to it carefully clean the throttle to see if you can save it. Good luck!

How do you replace upper brake light bulb Volvo in Volvo crosscounrty?

You take off the panel that covers the speaker. Then you pull out the speaker. Then you reach in and turn the socket of the bulb and it will come out. When you take them out I always put a mark on which side was facing me so it is easier to put it back in. It can be a pain but you should be able to do it.

How do you replace xc90 headlight?

1. Open the hood. Can be tricky if you don't do it much or never.. there is a latch by the driver's foot area on the left hand side of the wall by the foot area. THen the hood latch is UNDER THE GRILL just above the bumper by the driver's side.

2. There are two silver tabs above the light- they hold the light onto the car and they simply pull up and off.

3. The back of the light has a plastic access port that twists off.

4. then the bulb can be unplugged.

5. then the bulb can be twisted out of it's position to free it.

6. the replacement bulb is usually gray tipped with a red seal at the bottom. If you havn't bought it yet look for this one at the part store.

Just stick the new bulb in- plug it in and reverse the previous steps and you are done!

V70 Volvo rear seat belt stuck how to fix?

First off, this can happen when a small plastic pin (usually to position the seat belt male latch) falls out of the seatbelt or when you fold the rear seat down without carefully pulling out a length of seat belt first - YOU MUST DO THIS - pull out a length of seat belt before folding down the seat or the latch will lock the belt in position as you push the seat forward into the folded position. THE BUTTON STOP ON THE BELT ONLY acts as a stop when the seat gets folded down, to prevent the belt from getting pulled in. However many V70s already actually have the belt stop in place but it still happens (just happened to me yesterday and hence I know how to fix it).

Once the seat back is horizontal, there's no way to pull the belt back out since the jerking movement to push down the seat is telling the seat belt latch to lock as if in an accident and once locked it needs the seat back to rise first before it will reset and open the latch. So the taught belt is now holding the seat in its folded forward position and wil no release. Catch 22 so to speak.

Part 1: Getting the seat back upright again: My garage was going to remove the whole seat to try and fix this until I found this tip -

This works ! - Unbolt the belt anchor bolt from where it is attached between the seat cushion and the wheel well next to the floor This is a threaded bolt with no internal nut. Luckily this is accessible when the seat is folded down or better you can lift out the side seat trim carefully by simultaneously pulling upwards and the top of the padded trim towards the front seat to disengage the two mounting points. The seat cushion needs to be held away or moved up if possible, which makes it a little cumbersome. But in the end this fix takes less than 5 minutes if you have a 13mm socket and ratchet.

Part 2: Preventing this from happening again:

A. If you're ambitious, try to get the part from Volvo (good luck) BUT you do not need it if you follow para B) below and pull out the belt length before folding down the seat

B. Get what's essentially a plastic rivet - two parts that snap together with a pin Many new Volvos (like mine) already have this in the belt anyway as a positioning stay for the belt male connector BUT it is still likely to happen to you unless you PULL OUT A (3 feet) LENGTH OF SEAT BELT BEFORE YOU FOLD DOWN THE SEAT to be sure - otherwise the belt jams in its final horizontal position and prevents the seat being lifted up again. Do this and you will not have this problem ever.

C. Anything that makes the belt about 1/8" thick at that point

You can usually find the hole/spot where the original pin used to be. If not, just put it within a 1/4" of the slot when the seat is upright and the belt resting against the seat back.

From my experience this C) answer however will not stop the situation happening again unless you pull out a length of seat belt before you fold the rear seat down as the pushing down movement of the seat locks the latch onto the belt as if in a traffic accident.

It works, as does the fix.

What is proper tire size for 2004 Volvo XC90?

Open the drivers door and look on the b-piller. There should be a sticker that tells you the tire size for your model. I believe its 235-55-18, but the sticker should tell you for sure.

What would the cost of labor alone be to replace a transmission on a 2003 Volvo XC90?

my best guess since this is a euro car somewhere from 1-3 thousand This will depend on the Transmission in the car. Two types are used in the XC90. For the 6 cylinder engine it is the GM-4T65 and for the 5 Cylinder it is an AW-50/55. Either one can also be All Wheel Drive adding to the cost of replacement. The 5 cylinder two wheel drive will be the least expensive while the 6 cylinder All Wheel Drive will be the most costly.

How do you jumpstart a Volvo XC90?

Make sure the car is in neutral (park for automatic)

Open the bonnet (hood)

You shall see a red coloured connector by the left hand side fuse board.

Connect the positive to the other vehicle, then connect the negative to the engine.

Always best to let the charge run for a couple of minutes, then start the XC90.

Leave both vehicles running for a few minutes to get the best charge to the battery.

DANGER:

Always connect the jumper cables to dead battery vehicle FIRST.

You may have unburnt fuel sitting in the engine, this can cause an explosion if a spark occurs from the cable connection.

ALWAYS check polarity of the cables are correct BEFORE connecting - this can cause a fire, or even a battery explosion if incorrectly connected.
