I am looking for port to use OBD II tool I can not seem to find it. Any idea where I can find it?


On GM and Fords it's on the lower left hand corner of the dashboard, underneath the dash. You may have to look closer to find it.
There may be a plastic cap on it concealing it from view.

It should be there:

Diagnostic Link Connector Fig. 1: The OBD-II compliant Data Link Connector (DLC) is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel 91144p39.jpg
Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from the 16-pin DLC connector 88254gc8.gif
These vehicles are equipped with a Data Link Connector (DLC) which is the 16-pin connector that you attach the scan tool to read and/or clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). The DLC is located under the driver's side of the instrument panel. prev.gif next.gif

where do i find the dlc plug


PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!!! Data Link Connector OBD II Systems use a standardized test connector called the Data Link Connector (DLC). It is located beneath the instrument panel somewhere between the left end of the instrument panel and 12 inches (300 mm) past the vehicle centerline.
The DLC is located out of the sight of vehicle passengers, but should be easily viewable by a technician from a kneeling position outside the vehicle. The DLC is rectangular in design, capable of accommodating up to 16 terminals and has keying features to allow for easy connection. The DCL and Scan Tool connector have latching features that ensure the Scan Tool connector will remain mated when properly connected. Some common uses of the Scan Tool are:
  • To identify and clear any stored diagnostic trouble codes
  • To read the serial data stream information (e.g., PID data)
  • To perform Enhanced Diagnostic Tests (bi-directional Scan Tool)

Service light comes on


This is just a reminder that you need to have the vehicle serviced. It comes on every 5,000 miles or so. Here are instructions on how to reset the light - http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/2008/12/reset-service-light-volvo-850-s70-v70-c70-xc70/

Will volvo 840 doors be good for my s70


850 doors will not work on v70/s70. 850 has more slanted windshield angle, and 850 window controls are in console, so no power window harness!
