After I had the throttle body of my 2005 mazda3 cleaned, the RPMs would jump drastically - bouncing back and forth up to 16 times! The service manager seemed perplexed...and ultimately the solution was TIME. The bouncing gradually diminished and then stopped...can't remember for sure, but it was probably over about 6 weeks, maybe about 1000 miles.
It's a wonder the belt and the sparkers have resisted so long beyond their certified end of life. If you have maintained the car in this way no wonder you now have so many problems - a lot of other parts have reached their end of life long ago and must be immediately replaced. To be sure perform a full revision of the car, starting with the breaks - the fluid in them should have been replaced every 2 years.
I've been a Volvo Service worker for about a year and seen lot of these Volvo's. It's true that if the timingsbelt snaps the engine wil be ruined. It would be wise (seen that the service history isn't there) to change the belt if your not sure it happend. I life in the Netherland and because we have cars with a KM-dile, i don't know if this is any help but; timings belts in Europe sould be changed at 120.000 KM. How manny miles that is, well I just don't know. The engine in your Volvo is an B21 or B23. Both timing belts have to be changed at 120.000KM. But for the price (being a easy timing belt change) I sure change the timing belt. Than you'll be sure that everything is in good order.
The belt can last more than 60,000 miles but just to be on the safe side you should replace as soon a possible. Some vehicles like the Acura Legend timing belt is guaranteed for 90,000, however remember if there are oil leaking from any seal inside the cover the belt may break. Also if the water pump is leaking that may also shorten the life of the belt. You should change the belt , tensioner seals and water pump when you do this job. You may have it for another 100,00 miles.
It should be hit the unlock button 3 times, open and close the door 3 times, the locks will operate themselves twice. Hit the unlock button on the remote and it should program. you should try a remote from the dealer not from ebay.
