The C in a diesel usually stands for "common rail"

My S40's original stereo CD reader can read compressed mp3. I've got several burned CDs, some of which the files are mp3s taken from the net (some are 128kbps, so very compressed), and it works fine !

Now I read what to look for. I can't seem to get my OBII to read any faults. I know it's a diesel but can I get any info from the car?

What code reader are you using? The 1.9D can only be read with the Volvo DICE or very expensive professional code readers like the Snap on.
Current car: 2002 S40 1.9D, 1992 240SE project
Previous Volvos: 1999 S40 1.8, 2001 S40 T4
