OPUS IVS TechniciansWorkshops globally rely on Opus IVS diagnostic solutions to repair vehicle systems confiendently. Ian Sutton of Auditechnik uses IVS 360 in the workshop:

“I recently had a customer’s Volkswagen in the workshop – it was losing comms with the engine. I spoke to Lawrence Ward via IVS 360 who took me through some step-by-step checks to help me identify that I had a corrupt ECU that needed replacing. With Lawrence’s expert guidance, I was able to fix this fault quickly and get the car back to my customer in good time.”

The IVS 360 team recently supported a customer with an Volvo C70 2004 model year. The cruise control was reported as inoperable. A clutch pedal sensor fault code was also recorded. They identified the cause and steps needed to fix the problem:

Models affected: C70 (2001 – 2004), S60 (2001 – 2004), S80 (2001 – 2004), V70 (2001 – 2004)

1. Cruise control may not function.
2. Fault codes for the clutch pedal position sensor.

Fault codes:

• 928C – Cruise control lever. Signal too low. Permanent fault Engine Control Module – ECM

Possible causes:
1. Clutch pedal position sensor may be faulty and need replacing.

Repair steps:

  3. Go to Drive.
  4. Select dynamic data values, brake/clutch pedals.
  5. Check the clutch pedal position sensor values.
  6. When the clutch is completely released, the value is approx. 60-70%. The value decreases when the clutch pedal is depressed.
