1999 Volvo S70 Driver's Side Window Stops Working

I brought my daughters Volvo in for an emissions test. They bring it out 10 minutes later and the driver's side window stops working (the guy who conducted the test lowered the window). I can't imagine anything they did during the test to cause this, but it was working perfectly before hand. Any suggestions as to what might have caused it and any insight into troubleshooting it?

Actually yes, it is a known flaw with these model Volvo's. The backplate under the buttons in the master window switch is made of plastic. Over time it wears out and snaps. When it snaps, the windows will no longer go up or down as the contacts do not touch anymore.
Simple solution is to buy a new Master window switch. Should cost about $200.

How to turn off traction control in 99 s70 volvo that has automatic traction


On my 1998 S70 there is a rocker switch next to the sunroof and back window and mirror heat below the tachometer on the right hand side of the dashboard. If you have no other way, remove the fuse from traction control on the the main fuse box under the hood on the drivers side. There should be a guide to which fuse is which on the lid of the fuse box.

1999 s70 volvo driver door won't open from outside or inside


I am working on this RIGHT NOW. Remove panel (see Utube) remove white cover (Torx 25) from interior of exterior handle. You will see that lifting the handle pushes a rod down The rod is attached to the bottom half of the mechanism via a cheapo plastic connection, that can work loose. It is like a screw shaft (top) that squeezes (sideways) into a blue plastic channel which merely pinches the "screw shaft" to hold it. The connection has come loose. Squeeze upper shaft into (lower) blue channel. Added tiny bit of epoxy to bond "screw shaft" onto blue plastic gripper. Done. Saved $500.

1999 Volvo S70 emitting black smoke from exhaust


Sounds like computer to me , black smoke might just be due to fuel /air mixture.
Avoid dealerships , find a reputable mechanic.
Almost any shop can plug your car into a diagnostic computer .
If you live close to me , I would be happy to take an s-70 off your hands :)

The windows fog up inside of my Volvo S70


Sure sounds like the heater core, the only other thing would be some time of leak that is raising the moisture in the car is the floor board on the passengers side wet? If not look toward the heater core.

Replace Heater Core for Volvo S70 (1999)


It is your heater core. I fixed mine for $144. Ordered the new part on Ebay and followed these instructions http://www.volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=9717 It was very simple, I'm a middle age grandmother! The hardest part was cleaning up all the antifreeze. You will need a shopvac, a small one is $20 at WalMart.
