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.

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.

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.

Is it okay to buy tires other than the OEM Pirelli's for the 2004 XC70? I've never had an AWD vehicle before and I'm concerned about potential problems with other than OEM tires. However, I'm also not...

You will not like the price, of any of the tire choices, you have today

Any tire will be $200 ea

The tire rack is a good site to evaluate tires

Always go to several tire stores, to look at what your
interested in. Size doesn't matter for looking at tread design

I don't think, you thought out that question
You own the vehicle,you control tire selection,maintenance,etc

OEM tires are just that. It is possible that your car came with
any number of different brands. The factory will make a run,then
switch venders. All about money & savings
Usually the OE tires, are not the best, as far as wear

All you need, is a quality tire, and the outside diameter is critical
with AWD. That said, after you inflate,buy and then measure the outside of
the tire,what do you do. If you own a shop you can try several tires

My advice, is commit to some serious money,we have no choice,we have to use
what the vehicle was designed for
I wouldn't own a 4x4 or AWD, and run a summer tire. Without an aggressive tread you
defeat the purpose of AWD
So I would suggest you step up to the most aggressive tread you can find, in the correct size
You most likely got, what I call street tires,a florida special

Those less aggresive tires are no good in snow.
And 4x4 and AWD only drives on one tire per axle, not all 4

Pirelli --from my research,coinsidently is at the bottom of the list,forget them

Volvo 1992 XC70 AWD radiator fan doesn't shut off draining the battery

It is likly a dirty relay. This is located on the passenger side by the ratiator fan, with a black plastic cover over the box. Be sure to disconnect the negetive side of the battery before working on any thing electric. Clean the relay contact points using 200 grid sand paper (wet-dry black paper), You can use a spray electric contact cleaner as well, which you can get at most autoparts stores.

Exhaust manifold gaskets

the ticking noise when cold is an exhaust leak.If it is the exhaust manifold gaskets,depending on the vehicle they can be very difficult to some cases you must remove many other parts even to see the manifolds.make sure when manifolds are off that they are checked for warpage,this is a simple test needing only a straight edge and feeler gague.ask your tech if he can see any broken manifold studs/bolts and if quote covers time for removing broken manifold studs/bolts,because if any are broken,this can take quite some time to extract the broken studs/bolts.
