Volvos Through the Gorge - Volvo Car Cruise

It has been quite some time since we have been able to get together. During this unfortunate time everyone has been doing their best to navigate through unforeseen challenges. That’s why three prolific members of the Volvo community figured it would be best to partner up and host a car show before summer ends. IPD, Vol-Tech, and DLR Nordic got together and organized a car meet followed up by a drive through the majestic Columbia River Gorge ending up at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole in Bingen Washington. We hope you’ll join us for lunch. This is purely a gathering of enthusiasts looking to have some fun and chat about their Volvo. We look forward to seeing you September 25th!

SATURDAY 25th 8:30am


We will meet at IPD Volvo at 8:30am. If the main lot gets full we will start parking cars along Ainsworth Circle right outside of IPD’s driveway. For those who want to go for a drive through the Columbia River Gorge, we will leave IPD at 10AM. The caravan will hit I-205 North and then head out HWY 14 East to Bingen Washington (directly across from Hood River) For those of you joining us for lunch at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole you will receive a $5.00 off coupon.

Note***** IPD, DLR Nordic, and Vol-tech are not responsible for any incidents or accidents that may occur during this drive event. Everyone who attends will be driving and participating at their own risk.

    The most effective way to diagnose a problem like this is to connect the car to VIDA. If you don't have access to that software then I would call around to local Volvo shops and see if any have the software. A generic OBD 2 scanner might suffice too but VIDA is the best.

    The possible issues could be failing crank or cam position sensors, bad MAP sensor, etc... Or the loss of accessory power could point towards an immobilizer issue. This kind of issue is difficult to solve without a proper diagnostic tool.

    Our 2004 C70 will start and run very well for about 20 minutes and then the motors seems to choke up and all warning lights come on. Power seems to be lost to operate windows, seats etc. Leave for a short time and vehicle starts and the cycle begins again. Any help really appreciated.
