1999 Volvo V70 - The tailgate door will not unlock with the all unlock button on the drivers door OR when I unlock the drivers side door with the key. There is also NO LOCK cylinder inside the tailgate lock. I do not have the electronic lock key fob. I can only lock and unlock the tailgate with the button inside the tailgat itself. HELP!!!!

    ACTUALLY, I found the solution to this and a bunch of other tailgate issues!! Seems there is a cable running right inside (when tailgate is open) on the TOP LEFT corner. It's where all the connections for anything electronic comes from the front of the car to that area. Due to the opening and closing of the tailgate, and the bending of that cable, with time, some of the wires bend all the way through and no longer have a connection. Gently cut open the cable cover fabric...isolate which wires have been broken (was easy to spot)...splice them back together with wire screw connector thingies(my waaay technical term)....tuck them back in....wrap electrical tape back around the section of the fabric cable and tuck it back in! Took less that 10 minutes and everything is working fine!!!! Do NOT let Volvo tell you they need to replace the mechanics!!! What a rip off!

Check the wiring to the rear hatch. The cables break and cause a variety fo problems like yours. You will have to take the plastic cover off and expose the cables.

Key fob will not reset after replacing battery for my 2001 volvo v70?


Just replacing the battery in a key fob should not require any reset! If the power door locks work using the remote or key then it could be the switch is faulty!

Why will my drivers door not open,even though it locks and unlocks with key fob.


Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.

How does the 1999 Tahoe tailgate open?


The right side can be unlocked with the key, once opened, the left side can be opened. Mine, the left side requires me to push in slightly while ensuring the release handle is pulled to it's furthest point before it will unlatch. If the electrical contacts at the door frame are dirty, the door may not unlock when pushing the button up front thus requiring the key to be used in the rear door. If this is not the solution, the latch rods inside the door need adjusted which requires some mechanical expertise.

TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED


Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps
