Question Asked: The rear wiper and wiper pump failed
March 01, 2015, 09:50 AM
The rear wiper and pump were working until one day the rear lift gate light came on while the gate was closed and locked. I lifted and closed the tailgate, which got the light to shut off, but then the rear wiper and pump stopped working as did the rear gate indicator light. Also, interior lights will not shut off. I checked all the related fuses. I'm guessing this is an electrical controller issue somewhere. Might it be the box in the liftgate where all the wires come together? What's that called so I can order one and try that.

Problem Reported: Hard Shifting, Erratic Shifting and Other Transmission Issues
December 21, 2010, 10:48 AM
<p>Many complaints have been reported regarding Volvo S70 transmission shifting issues. Long shift times between gear shifts, hard shifting, hard downshifting and a loss of transmission operation all together to name a few.</p> <p>If the issue is minor, a transmission software update may fix this issue so if available, the software should be updated before any repairs are made.</p> <p>There are several <a id="ce_10733" class="ct_selected" href="/technical-service-bulletin-or-recall">technical service bulletins</a> (TSB's) available from Volvo that address these shifting issues and they should be consulted by the repair shop during the <a id="ce_10934" class="ct_selected" href="/automatic-transmission-diagnosis">automatic transmission diagnostic</a> process.</p> <p>Regular servicing of the transmission fluid can help with preventing transmission failure, but not in all cases. Follow the suggested fluid replacement interval recommended by Volvo. You will find this in your owners manual, or find it here: http://bit.ly/Volvo_Owners_Manuals</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
