Can't remove key from ignition


This is probably caused by a broken button for the shifter knob. If you put the car in park take notice whether the button popped all the way back out or not. If not you it need replacing but you can make it work temporarily by hitting the shift knob with your hand. Hit the top of it and the button should pop out.

1998 volvo s70. Gearshift has been sticking - must pull down lock to get it fully into "park". Problem today is that alarm sounds when you open the door or turn the key in the ignition. ...


There is a cable that connects your gearshift to the ignition switch, when this cable stretches, it does not allow the gearshift assembly to move when you have the key turned. Removed the assembly around the gear shift assembly and inspect this cable. Removed the cable and manually actuate the lever. See if this fixes the problem as it is common in the S70/C70/V70s that are pre 2000

How to turn off service engine light on 98 volvo s70. just did oil change


There is unfortunately no "trick" for this. You will need the service light reset tool. On some other Volvo models it was possible to reset the light by holding down the reset button for the trip meter and turning the key to position II - keep holding the reset button down for about 30 seconds.

How to re-set service light on my 1998 s70 volvo after service was done, disconnect battery?


there are three different dash panels used in the volvo v70 and s70 for 1998.
2 of them are made by VDO the third is made by YAZAKI

- the YAZAKI dash has a small rubber plug just to the left of the speedometer, pop it out with a small screwdriver and and use the screwdriver to push in the button behind it then reinstall the plug

- the EARLY VDO dash cannot be reset without a factory scan tool production date before 8/97

- the LATE VDO dash can be reset, turn ignition off, press and hold trip reset button, turn ignition on (still holding button) hold for 10 seconds release when light flashes
