04 XC70 On Call Plus deactivated

I purchased this car used thus it came with the On call plus deactivated..I thought. The owners manual has nothing in it to help with reactiving it or how to even use it really. So I turned to the internet and spent hours in research on it. I learned that the system operates via bluetooth but was unable to locate any specific instructions as to how to "Sync" my phone and the system. Volvocars/ ofcourse only refferances new models and makes but was somewhat helpfull and had a 800 number for Volvo to call. So I picked up the phone and called them which gave me a lady with a short answer of " O well that was an anolog system and it's now out of date so there is nothing we can do for you sorry." I maybe wrong but I would think that there has to be away to use this hands free system in my car even if it requires me taking it to a Volvo dealer and getting sometype of upgrade to it. If anyone can shine some light on this for me I would be forever greatfull, for at the moment I have a REALLY nice car with a REALLY nice hands free phone system in it that just takes up space on the dash and steering wheel. :-(

If it has the keypad on the left side of the radio then it does not have blue tooth. It is a built in cell phone. The problem is that the system is analog and there are no more analog service providers. Every provider has switched to digital. There is a service campaign that has software to remove the "on call plus deactivated" warning. The hardware is also removed and a pocket is put in the place of the keypad.

I don't know for sure if it will be free, since it was never a recall. I'd call Volvo back and see if you can talk them into doing it for free.

The only things left will be the handset in the arm rest and the steering wheel buttons.

Technology is great but it is ever improving. It wasn't only Volvo that got left behind. There were quite a few other Manufacturers that were stung. If I remember right Mercedes also had quite a few systems that became obsolete.

I wish I had better news.

I purchased a 2004 xc70. The previous owner reported driving it parking it for 6 months and it never started again. He did charge the battery.

I recommend strongly you see the dealer, I think the BCM has lost programming. The dealer can re-flash the BCM module.

Really need owners manual

It depends on your year--make--model? There are online sites where you may be able to look at owners manual online for free.

You may be able to purchase owners manual, from the vehicle manufacturer or online at ebay?

Just type year--make--model plus owners manual in your computer search box. See what comes up. The older the vehicle, the harder it may be to find?

What grade of transmission oil do I use for a 2003 jeep grand cherokee crd

The obvious answer to that would be to look in your Owner's Manual.
If you do not have an Owner's Manual, you can get one at:

The service manual lists two types depending on which engine your vehicle is equipped with:

4.0L Engine requires ATF Plus 3 or ATF Plus 3 Type 7176
4.7L Engine requires ATF Plus 4 or ATF Plus 4 Type 9602

Need fan belt diagram

There should be a sticker under the hood near the front with a serpentine belt diagram. If the sticker is missing then you can also find it in the owner's manual. If no owner's manual you can purchase a Haynes or Chilton's manual which will also have the diagram plus many useful tips and repair instructions you may need down the road.

2004 Volvo xc-70 (Automatic trasmission in Park position) Ignition key inserts, lights the dash and unlocks the steering wheel but wont go past position II or III to start. Changed keys and managed to push...

Purchase an after-market switch set from an auto parts dealer like NAPA or Parts plus, any one of them would get you a switch set a lot cheaper than OEM. Before I'd pay $300 for a tumbler barrel I personally would remove the switch and use a screwdriver to start my car. I've done that also.
