you either have a faulty central locking motor or the wiring harness may be damaged.
Remove the door panel and check if you have a live feed to the central locking motor when you use the fob to lock or unlock. If you have power, then it will most likely be the motor that is at fault.

SOURCE: Can you lock a '91 740 volvo without the key?

We have the '90 940, have you tried this; when the kids are piling out we reach through the back door and push down the lock button on the drivers door, this locks all the doors without the key...also helps if you have an armful of bags..just make sure your keys aren't still inside!!

SOURCE: My Volvo S60 Fuel flap won't lock or unlock,

The pin solenoid that activates the remote locking is not receiving any electrical signal, it must have been unhooked. This solenoid is right by the filler door, inside the boot. The alarm activates on electrical differences, such as dome light, boot light or filler door electrical demand when it is activated. Hence, the alarm wont trip off if door is opened manually from the outside.

The fuel door won't fasten solenoid for activation working

Hi John,
These cars have a delay of about 10 minutes to lock the fuel door. The thinking is that you can get out, lock the car, go inside a gas station and pre-pay, then come back out and open the lid and fill up.

Basically, lock your car and walk away for 10 minutes, THEN check it.
It should unlock normally with your remote when you unlock the car.

If this doesn't work normally, then I seem to recall that the locking relay for the gas flap is RM1 in the fuse panel on the driver's side in the trunk. You might want to pull it out and put it back in, give it a light tap etc. Just make sure it's ok, or replace it.

Start with checking the delay first.

I have a 2001 Volvo XC (V70), I think the fuel gauge may be frozen. Is this possible?

Electrical issue is causing your hassles. Look for a bad ground in circuit common to those items.

Emergency fuel door release for 2000 Volvo S80

Copied from Volvo Forums

I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.

Gear shift stays stuck in park sometimes for about 10 to 20 minutes.. why is that?

Hard to say without performing a diagnosis, but I have seen the shift lock solenoids fail. Make sure the brake lights are working, the signal used for the brake lights are also used for the shift lock.

The sliding door on our 1996 Toyota Sienna is broken shut (it cannot be opened). The door button on the inside nor the handle on the outside can mechanically effect the door. We do not have automatic door...

It sounds like the cable/bar in the door is broken or stuck

1. you will need to remove the door lining to get at the problem

2. could also be the door lock stuck in the lock position (does the door feel like it locks or unlocks when you use the lock)

3. could be the handle cable/ bar

NOTE some vehicles have cables while others have bars play with everything while you have the guts exposed this should help to locate the problem if nothing is moving while you play with the lock or handle this could be the problem
NOTE If nothing seems to be missing or out of place it could simply need to be lubed at the point where the door locks to the frame

Left sliding door stuck, will not open

In my case (on the right door being completley dead and manual button stuck) it had nothing to do with the fuel door, since the right door is not disabled ever by the fuel door. My cause of the problem was the door lock actuator module being worn out internally. I replaced the door lock actuator module (a sub assembly of the entire door latch/lock/motor assembly) and all is well. The part was about $73 from the Chrysler dealer. Afterward, I actually dissected the door lock actuator, and could see how the internal mechanism had jammed. By the way, the module had changed revisions (been supersceded) several times. the part number I got off the web was outdated. I'm really glad I physically took the part to the dealer and had him look up the latest, by vehicle and year, NOT by the part number off the item, or found on the web!

The fuel door is locked, how to fix this?

Remove the rear panel on the passenger side and then remove the insert that is also located in this same location. That will be the hardest part and that is not that hard. You should be able to gain access to the electric plunger that locks the fuel door. It is located just about midway up the fuel door closest to the rear of the car. Slide it back with your finger, there will be very little resistance and the door should be able to be opened. I hope this helps.

Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating

1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
