Question about 1998 Volvo V70

1 Answer

Lights on my dashboard coming on now.

We just purchased a 98 Volvo v70 wagon, 20 valve/5cyl.
And there a few lights that come on. One of them is a arrow pointing up blinking, it's like a shift light for a manual trans. Another light is the Tracs off light, it too blinks and then the service light come on then goes off. It's a great running car, but the lights worry us.

These are Called "Dummy Lights" Because it can mean any Number of Different things for one Light. The best way to Solve this is to locate an Authorized Mechanic and have a Computer Diagnostics Ran to locate the Exact Problems.

I would guess the brake light switch is going bad. it is a push button type switch mounted to the metal arm which transfers motion from the brake pedal to the master cylinder. generally unclips or unsnaps and then unplugs from wiring. put a rug down on the dry floor next to the open driver's door. get a flash light and look up underneath the dashboard. follow the brake pedal arm up a few inches and you will see it. that is on a normal car, who knows how the swedes do it. they could drive up the complexity and cost by installing a pressure switch into a brake line somewhere which would double as a brake failure alert. first thing i would do is google volvo brake light switch and see what it looks like. then check under the dahsboard and see if you see it there

Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removeable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. No smoking, extinguisher handy. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow.
