#162 of 170 04 c70 top cycle no chime windows do not lower at begining of cycle
Apr 23, 2013 (5:50 pm)
I have an 04 c70 and I first noticed that that the rear window demister was not working. I have also noticed that the chime at the end of the lowering or raising of the top does not sound. Also the windows do not lower when the top starts its cycle.
From what I read on VADIS the control module is suppose to lower the windows 5cm at the begging of the cycle. Also the boot is not suppose to be able to be open via the switch (I can open it while lowering or raising the top but it does stop). Also the rear defroster is shup off when the cycle is not complete which is why I think the defroster does not work.
I have checked the fuses and they seem to be fine. I found a buzzard or Relay that reads "Audible Hood Warning Unit 8611543" I204
I am not sure if this is the relay for the chime. I tried to test it by putting power to the connectors but I did not hear a click.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks..

I have a Volvo C70 convertible also and my top went 1/2 way up and stopped. Would not go down or up. All fuses were fine. I had to use tools to take off the boot from the hinges so I could get into the trunk so I could use the crank. Then I had to also use the crank inside the car, up by the rear view mirror so I could lock the top down. Now the DAMN ding DING bell goes off every time I drive the car. I have been trying to find where the bell is so I can disconnect it, or put tape over it. I can live with the top being a crank up and down, because I have several other cars and because I have cut the crank off and now just insert it into a battery drill. Any one know where the bell is???
#165 of 170 2007 c70 hardtop leaking
Apr 25, 2013 (9:34 pm)
I have a 2007 C70 and I have taken it into a couple of repair shops as I am having a leaking problem with the Hard top. No body can seem to find the problem and I have paid a lot of money to fix it. Does any one have any ideas for me on how to fix this or a good repair shop in the Seattle area that could help with this?

Hi. Would you happen to know how long I need to hold the yellow button? I've tried it for a couple of seconds and have also held it in while the compressor is doing its thing and nothing happens. No matter how long or short I press the button, the top does not lift. I have to wait a couple of minutes (truly) and then press the button again and the top will move. (And sometimes, it takes a couple of presses to even get there.) I just got this car last Monday (mine is a 2009) and took it to the dealer Wednesday. They seem to make it work but today it happened again that I could not access the trunk quickly. Nothing in the manual really speaks to the length of time to hold the button. Do you have any tips?

I just purchased a 2003 C70 Volvo convertible auto. she has now developed an intermittent fault. I stop and park, and then she won't start again. I have to wait, usually she will then start. But the other day I had to get AA out. They tested all the usual stuff, Petrol pump etc. But she just wouldn't start. Next morning, hopped in and she started first time. The local garage can't find anything via the diagnostic test. It sounds like there is no fuel getting through. ANY IDEAS out there. One thing it seems that it is when the weather is warm, but can that be right.?

When I picked up my C70, the roof was very slow. While having her serviced I mentioned it to the garage. They lubricated all bits, and she now moves freely. Simple I know but maybe of a little help. As for the button, like I say at first I seemed to have to wait ages for her to click into place and begin, but now, although not the quickest, I keep my finger on her for sometime before letting go. I wondered if the motor was on the way out but not so in my case..

May sound strange but I have a solution. Not really a solution as a work around. I have a 2001 and have a similar problem starting. The work around is to take out the key and turn it upside down. This usually restarts the car. I'm not sure it's the turning as much as taking it out. Try it next time it fails to start. Mine was like this when I bought the car three years ago and was told the workaround by the previous owner.
