I bought the cheapest Volvo C30 in the country for only $3,000 somewhere in northeast Texas. It needed a lot of help, all the suspension was blown out but the turbocharged five cylinder engine was perfect. All of the suspension has been replaced but more noises started since, I don't have cruise control and the key doesn't work. It's time to get this car into the dealer, add cruise control and fix the key situation. Doing it at the dealer was much easier than trying to cobble it together DIY.

I never heard of fluid-filled engine mounts, no wonder they failed! European over-engineering at its best. You have to remove the passenger side one anyway to do the timing belt, so you might as well do the timing belt on that engine for peace of mind while you are at it.

They quoted me $400 dollars for a replacement key. $100 for the key, $140 for labor, and the rest for single-use security codes. This may be my last Volvo.

I’ve been doing much the same with a 24 year old Volvo 850. It turns out there is one wiring loom for all cars so all you need are buttons for the dash, a few relays and jumpers under the dash and the actual accessory. I stripped the bits from a scrap car found in a breaker’s yard.

That battery looks like the wrong size for your car, the terminal on my S40 sticks over the edge almost flush with the battery.

How much was that replacement key? I've got a 2007 s60 and the key is shot. It won't lock and the flip out key is all floppy. Gotta love volvo electrical problems!

In the late 80s, I put an aftermarket CC on my 86 Escort GT, and it SUUUUUUUUCKED! . It wasn't available as an option for the car, so I swapped in a Tempo CC system and steering wheel. That took HOURS of work in the boneyard to strip out the entire system with wiring harness, then fitting it in properly in the same routing in the Escort. . Then I started grabbing every Ford option I could get that was never sold for the car. Power windows and locks from an 80s Mustang, power gas door release from a Tbird (?), power driver's seat track from a late 80s Tbird, fitting the switches into the GT seat bottom, rear deck from an XR3 to replace the rear seat (later replaced with custom frame with storage doors). . I ended up having to add a complete second fusebox in the glove compartment to power it all (and hte second battery for the sound system), as every option got it's own fuse. I also wired LEDs into that fusebox so that if a fuse blew, it would light up to show me which blew (never did, I did the wiring right). Using a Mustang fusebox made the addition pretty nice, as I could plug the PW/PDL power wires straight into the back of the box to link to the labeled fuses. . I even shaved the door handles and got it to pass VA inspection by using door lock rods that came up through the window trim on the outside, pushing them down popped the doors. . The only "option" I never got around to was an XR4Ti bi-plane rear spoiler, because I never found one in a boneyard, and attempts at building my own with foam failed badly. The factory "whale tail" had to do. . Damn I miss that little car, I wish I could get it back if it still exists. A 2.3L or newer Ecoboost swap would make it a really fun ride.

For most easy diy maintenance, I do it myself, otherwise I go to the dealer because they know your car and have the right OEM parts. If you’re in Houston, I’d recommend Mossy Nissan and West Houston VW for sales, parts and service in your Nissan or VW.

bilstein coilovers, motor mounts, timing belt and water pump/coolant reservoir (radiator end plastic tanks can let go/heater core fatigue), battery case, all-wheel drive retrofit, polestar tune, etc. These C30 cars can be upgraded to be competitive to just about anything currently made.

I had a 2013 Dart, I added cruise control to it by simply adding the steering wheel part that had the buttons. It worked from install, I did take the car in for software updates when it was under warranty and they ran some sort of cruise control activation even though it worked without it.

Cool video... I also have a c30 and s40. The S40 I’ve added the stock performance sound with amp. Getting the parts from a LKQ junkyard was easy and cheap but the Dealer software downloads $$$ about almost $700 The Volvo dealership confirmed that if the wire harness and the computer modules are there it can be added. Good luck with future updates

Wanted to make sure you knew: you've got the wrong battery in there. Posts should be on the left. That weird positive terminal should be straight. Also, you're missing half of the battery box. Seriously, I don't know how to better describe it, other than that it's weird, and look into it. Also, there are two batteries specified for the C-30. You want the smaller one for yours.

I found out that alot of stuff from volvo comes pre-installed in the harness, at least on the X/V70 platforms, there's a 12V outlet ready in the rear hatch that is ready but not plugged in on some models, aswell as a harness for interior door handle lights aswell, the door panel has small windows ready for the light to shine through, you can even install an auto dimming rear view mirror with a compass and all you need is a software update for it to work

JR, have you tried to "cook" the old keys in the oven? Sometime the solder cracks and you can melt it again in the oven; i fixed mine doing it. You have to disassemble the key and put only the board, remove the plastics and battery. Preheat the oven to 150-180 F and put the key between 5 to 10 min, always have an eye on it, because the time depends on the oven. Usually it takes less than 10 min. The board have to be leveled, so the solder melts right back in place. If it didn't fix it on the first try, repeat the cicle. Let me know how it works for you!

You should probably change out the transmission torque mount. And a cheap upgrade is to get the e-focus mount.

This is the same with newer Softails. $250 option which is just the switch and a software update. Pretty common with throttle by wire vehicles.
