Gas gage does not work...... remote will not operate the trunk opener..... remote will open front doors but not the back doors...... trunk light will not work....seem everything in the rear part of the car.................. any ideas.
Sounds like the rear electronic module is malfunctioning. How do you get the trunk open to find out the light is not working? The REM controls all of the functions you describe in your post. If you can get the trunk open then to this:
Disconnect the positive and negative cables from the battery and touch them together for at least 5 minutes. Don't worry, you will not be doing any damage to the car or yourself. Place the cables back onto the battery and then lock and unlock the car. See what happens. If it works then your rear electronic module (REM) needs a software upgrade at your Volvo dealer, about $120 USD.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

In trunk on left side there should be a manual pull cable to operate the door if the electrical solenoid fails to operate when pushing the fuel door button on the left side of the dash near the trunk lid button.
When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise
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.

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite
and now it works like a charm.
I can't promise that this will apply to your car, but in my Audi, there is a manual release cable in the trunk, and your car may have one too. Go into the trunk, pull back the trunk lining on the side where the gas filler door is and look for a pull cord. Often the European cars have this feature since their gas doors are unlatched electronically, and this serves as a backup in case the electronic release fails. Take a look and see if you have this feature - I'd almost be surprised if you don't.
If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.
I had a problem with my ambient air temperature sensor and the passenger side door lock. I was told that I needed a control module and that my battery was bad. When I replaced the battery, the module reset and everything started working again. Try disconnecting the positive cable from your battery and or having it checked at a local auto parts store.
