Awd not working on my 2004 xc70

Raise the vehicle start the engine and put it in drive. If the front wheels are turning and the rear driveshaft isn't, the most likely cause is the coupler between the transmission and the angle gear.

Awd on 2004 xc70 quit working--any ideas ?

Raise the vehicle and start the engine. Put the vehicle in drive, make sure that if the vehicle is equipped with DSTC it is turned off. If the front wheels turn but the rear driveshaft doesn't, the most likely cause is the coupler between the transmission and the angle gear is bad.

My xc70 Volvo shows a message "bulb failure

"position light" is a rear parking light which has failed or become unseated. Sometimes you can knock on the tail light housing and they will come back on, but they burn out shortly after regardless.

These and the low beam headlamps fail very frequently on these cars so you should become familiar with the replacement procedures.

Check the online manual:
