V70 2,4T 2001 - Cruise problem

Does anyone know, if cruise control on the model above has been
associated with frequent problems?

I'm really getting the impresion, that our sportswagon is some kind of a
Monday version. The latest nail in the coffin was this week, when the
cruise control just refused to be activated and after several attempts
the computer responded with "engine system failure, service soon".

First the cruise just came off. Then it didn't activate at all. After
shutting the engine and restart it did activate, but after pressing the
+-button, it just went dead. Then came the warning...

I called my trusted service guy, and he said it's most likely a failed
sencor. Is this common with V70? Our car has only 40,000 kilometers and
we think it's still too young to have all these probs. In addition,
there has been

* wheel alignment problem - expensive to fix!
* engine fan failure (known, there's a recall)
* software bugs
* right rear schock absorber failed
* one of the DSTC-sencors replaced

Cheers for any info!!!!

Vs: V70 2,4T 2001 - Cruise problem

I have had problem with my cruise so that when I set it on and overdrive car
in front of me = accelerate and then come back to the previous speed, cruise
doesn't catch that speed, I have to set it again. That was fixed with
software upload. The same was with my auto tranny, it lost drive and revs
droped slightly, when starting to drive and change from 2 to 3. Got better
also with SW upload.

Otherwise been happy with my Volvo V70 2004 model 2.5 Turbo.

Missä huollossa olet käynyt?

Terveisin vaan

Moikka. Vaihdetaan vaan kieltä, ihan englantia vääntävien kiusaksi
vaikka sitten :o)

Joo, ihan tollasia ongelmia mulla ei todellakaan ollut, vaan se
"putosi" päältä just sillä hetkellä, kun yritin asettaa vakionopeutta +-
nappulasta. Pari kertaa toistoa ja sitten alkoi tietokone herjata
huollon tarpeesta. Tuohan nyt siis tuli jo kaikki esille siitä ekasta
postista.

Olen käyttänyt autoa nyt täällä Berliinissä Volvo Janschillä,
Reinickendorfissa. Ja hyvä huoltopaikka se on ollut. Meidän auto on
meinaan kiertänyt hieman maailmaa ja Koreassa ollessaan siinä oli
kaikkea pientä ikävää, kuten nuo mainitsemani ongelmat. Korean poika ei
vikoja osannut korjata, mutta Saksassa asioihin löytyi välittömästi
ratkaisu ja auto on ollut nyt vuoden päivät aikas iskussa. Paitsi nyt
taas alkoi vinoilemaan. Ohjelmistopäivitykset on tehty viime vuonna,
jolloin mm. takapään sähköt, ml.ovet alkoivat elää omaa elämäänsä.

Toisaalta veikkaan, että kyseessä saattaa olla akkuun liittyvä ongelma.
Pari päivää sitten Tsekeistä palatessamme kierrokset meinaan tippuivat
tuonne 500rpm:n korville tyhjäkäynnillä. Se oli ihan uutta. Valot vexja
ilmastointia pienemmälle niin avot, johan nousi kierrokset about 800:aan
ja kaikki toimi suht ok. Cruisea en edes viitsinyt kokeilla aktivoida.
Aamulla autoa käynnistäessä oli muuten varoituskolmio sammunut ja
tietokoneella ei ollut sitä viestiä, että "moottorisysteemissä vikaa -
huolla pian". Aika omituista.

Olen tosiaan tilannut ajan ensi keskiviikolle ja sillähän se vika
selviää viimeistään. Voin kirjoittaa, miten kävi. Jos sulla, tai jollain
muulla, on vinkkejä tai tietoa, niin otan kaiken infon kiitollisuudella
vastaan!

The car is now checked and the computer reset. The fault just simply
disappeared all by itself, which is typical according to my service
point in Berlin.

There was no parts changed. But the real problem had something to do
with the system that monitors engine air intake. Well, we did pass some
"mountains" when crossing the border from Germany to Czech Republic last
week.

It would be nice to know, if someone else (living in mountanious region)
has experienced similar problems...

There's nothing wrong with the mountains in your area, either :o)

FYI, whenever in the States, I always come to the west. Cause it's the
best! Man, do I miss Rockies like every other day...
