Re: 99 volvo v70 xc back hatch will not open
It could be just a censor in the door itself. My truck does this. Its nothing serious, just means the the censor is burnt out. I could be wrong, take it in and have someone else look at it. If you think it is a spring, try looking for it on ebay autos. You can find lots of stuff there cheaper than you will at a dealership. Then just have it installed. Good luck.

Your radio has been replaced, not uncommon for that year and the SC series of radios. The dealer will need to remove the radio (real easy to do) and has to get 2 numbers from the tag on top and query them through the Volvo DMS system. Note that if you enter the wrong code 3 times the radio will say OFF and you will have to leave the key in position 1 for up to 4 hours till the radio anti-theft resets and you can try again.
I'll take it that your Codes are actually P1171 and P1132. The P1171 is: Fuel System Lean during Acceleration and your P1132 is, HO2S (Heated Oxygen Sensor), Circuit shorted to Heater Circuit conditions Bank 1, O2 Sensor 1.

Most oil/lube shops use a process of suctioning the old transmission fluid through the fill tube. On older cars, this process can damage the transmission since any metal fragments in the bottom of the transmission pan will be "sucked up" through the system. Since they won't perform the service properly (remove the transmission pan/filter and replace the filter). This is why they referred you to a dealer. Any transmission shop should be able to service your transmission. Best of luck! Greg
Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.
