IVS 360, from Opus IVS, offers diagnostics and live repair guidance support services to help workshop technicians fix complex vehicles safely and quickly. All Opus IVS mechanical repair solutions come with live repair guidance from OEM brand-specific master technicians.

Using the DrivePro’s diagnostic software and extensive product knowledge, the IVS 360 team identifies the cause and steps needed to fix vehicle faults.

The experts remote in real time directly to vehicle communication systems to diagnose, programme and calibrate vehicles. This eliminates uncertainty, giving workshops the confidence to get the most complex vehicles back on the road safely and fast.

The team recently supported a customer with a 2004 Volvo C70. The cruise control was reported as inoperable. What’s more, a clutch pedal sensor fault code was also recorded. The IVS team identified the cause and steps needed to fix the problem. This particular problem can affect several Volvo models between the years 2001 and 2004.


  • Cruise control may not function
  • Fault codes for the clutch pedal position sensor

Fault Codes

  • 9300 Clutch pedal position sensor, faulty signal. Signal too high. Permanent fault Engine Control Module – ECM
  • 928C Cruise control lever. Signal too low. Permanent fault Engine Control Module – ECM

Possible Causes

Repair Steps

  1. Remove the driver’s side dash undertray
  2. Inspect position sensor for clutch fluid contamination
  3. Connect your Opus IVS device
  4. Go to Drive
