Question about 1999 Volvo V70

2 Answers

1999 Volvo V70 - did NOT come with the elctronic key fob. I have seen the exact same fob on ebay, for about $30, which I then take to be programmed at the dealers. I have heard to ask for an ADDITIONAL key to be programmed, as there are additional slots in the computer for additional keys, that don't cost the exhorbitant amount the first one does. Anyone know anything about this?

Dont do the ebay thing. once a key has been programmed for a car. it cannot be reprogrammed for YOUR car. you have to go to the dealer.
in this case the dealer has got you!
people sell thier car and keep the extra key. then sell them on ebay. the ebay key will be of no use to your car. but people will buy the keys anyway in desparation because the dealerships charge soo soooo much..

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!

Ignition lock stuck

You mean the ignition, not the fob. Right? Ok ; mine does this too -- use a little WD40 in the key slot, or graphite. Don't force the key to turn but give it a minor up/down motion when trying to get it to turn.

My volvo v70 drivers door will not open

My first thought is that there may be a broken linkage inside the door. The drawback to that is that you need the door open in order to work on it. It could be the lock linkage or the handle. I would suggest having a locksmith look at it. They have some tools that will allow them to look down in there and possibly see what's going on. (Very doubtful they would be able to fix it)

Lost key an fob on my 850 v70 t 1995

It will cost well over $250 through a Volvo Dealer just for the Fob and that is the only way to do it. Volvo should be able to sell you a new key but they will need your Vin Number.

Can i recode the fob without going to a Volvo dealer

The short answer... no. That's the long answer too, sadly. If there's a DIY software / cable package out there that will allow coding a key fob, I haven't seen it.

Does a 1998 v70 come with remote fob for central locking

Should have a key fob.  You can buy a used one and the dealer can program it.  You can not program it yourself.
