Question about Volvo V70

2 Answers

The driver's side window on my Volvo V70 diesel auto 55 plate has a faulty "flick" facility. When I flick it to close the window it rises to the top and then goes right back down again. Can I re-set this simply?

    It would be almost impossible for a stick to be caught in the upper seal! There might well be something wrong with the sensor but I do not know where they are or how to access them or what to do with them. I was hoping there was a simpler solution. I'm sure others must have had the same problem.

Volvo windows have a safety feature fitted so if you hand is in the window it wont fully go up it will go back down, So it may be best to check the sensor or to observe and see if anything is obstructing the window from going up, As the sensor may be thinking that there is something in the way and prevent chopping hands off it goes back down the seal for the window could have come loose or has something like a small stick or something stupid in the seal stopping window from going up, If that fails it could be the switch or the sensor for the safety feature.

    I used term Stick as an example anything small could have got into window seal or the sensor could have become defective, You could wait for others to reply to this question but i am sure its the sensor at fault.

  • mike_mielnic Aug 03, 2010

    The seal is clear of any obstructions and the window and seal itself are not loose or faulty. The fault happened all of a sudden and for no apparent reason. I do not plan to tamper with the sensor (wherever it is) because if I hold the switch up rather than just flick it the window will stay shut. It is only the flick facility which is a problem.

    Ok then its a switch problem just replace the switch, If it goes up and stays up if u hold the switch upwards then its the auto up problem with switch, It should be cheap to replace and will sort out the problem.

Its the faulty switch in the window for that particular window.all the other windows too are controlled by main switch.Which is also located on driver side door panel.
If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2) 
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    Electrically operated windows
    The electrically operated windows are controlled by buttons in the arm rests. The ignition switch must be ON * (ignition key in position I, II or the engine running) for the electrically operated windows to function.
    To lower: Press down the front edge of the button to the first detent ("stop").
    To raise: Lightly pull up the front edge of the button to the first detent ("stop").
    * The electrically operated windows will also function after the ignition has been switched off as long as neither of the front doors has been opened.
    Auto up/down function (front doors only):
    Either front door window can be opened or closed automatically.
    Auto down: Press the front part of the button as far down as possible and release it immediately. To stop the window at any time, pull the button up.
    Auto up: Pull the front part of the button up as far as possible and release it immediately. To stop the window at any time, press the button down.
    NOTE: The power windows in the front seat have an overload protecting circuit breaker which reverses movement of the power windows to their starting points, if they are obstructed in any way. Thereafter the windows will operate normally again.
    Cutout switch for rear windows
    The electrically operated rear door windows can be disabled by a switch located on the driver's door .
    If the LED in the switch is OFF: The rear door windows can be raised or lowered with the buttons on the rear door armrests or with the buttons on the driver's door armrest.
    If the LED in the switch is ON: The rear door windows can only be raised or lowered with the buttons on the driver's door armrest.

    There is no sensor for windows,there is switch on drivers side.That controls the windows .
    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

2000 VOLVO V70 2.5 diesel (D5252T) cannot start with MAF sensor whire conected


Read the fault codes with the MAF sensor connected and it will tell you what is wrong with the sensor. If it is faulty (disconnected it is read by the cpu as such) then items such as injector operation. crank position sensor idle rpms accelerator position etc are all affected . The cpu system has to be balanced or the settings in the cpu will be out.

Hello, I would be very grateful if someone could help me please. My 53 plate 2.5 diesel auto volvo does not run smoothly, the engine seems to be missing and the downgearing is very rough. Would anyone know...


It may be time for a tune up for your 9 year old car. You don't state the mileage nor when the last tune up may have been. Rough running can be many things including but certainly not limited to: dirty or poor operating injectors, poor engine timing, dirty air, fuel filters and a host of other items that will be corrected during the course of a normal maintenance tuneup. Please discuss your concerns with your Volvo diesel mechanic.

Volvo V7 '01 sunroof will not stop in closed position


I think I know the answer....your gear has slipped on the cable a few teeth. Set the roof to the desired closed position, flush with your roof. Then open the panel above the mirror by first prying off the switch plate and removing the two 10mm bolts holding the mirror. Remove the sunroof motor gear, or rather just lower it out so it is disengaged with the cables. Now connect the switch and hit the auto open button as if you wanted to open the roof with single flick of the switch. Now hit the auto close button (same button of course, but the single touch method). The motor will advance and stop to where it thinks the roof should be, closed, which it is. Reassemble the gear into the slot, test it if all good, replace the mirror and panel.
Good luck.
Manfred.
