Question about 1999 Volvo V70

Volvo V70 Key Programming Issue is the main dealer pulling a fsat

Hi I bought a 1999 V70 T5 SE Auto and took it to the main dealer yesterday to have a new key (which they ordered) and a thob to be programmed for my car. After 2 1/2 hours and not the quoted 20 minutes they told me there was a problem. The thob had been programmed and works correctly but the key wasn't accepted by the car, and therefore the car needs to go in for a day for more checks as they suspected that it was a fault with the car. When I questioned it further they let it slip that it might be the chip in the key and they will be ordering a replacement. I am pretty savvy when it comes to cars usually through experience. Has anyone else had this issue or is the dealer trying to pull my chain? The car itself has no issues, no error codes and drives perectly.

It can sometimes take 2-3 hours for the car to accept the new programming. Remember you are dealing with pretty old and somewhat slow processors.

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.

Volvo V70 t5 Shift to Transmission cable broken

Seems excessive for just a cable unless the transmission has to be removed and dismantled.

I suggest you check with the dealer for costs and parts availability and the dealer price would typically be the most expensive quote for your guidance.
Then you should ask at least a couple of local transmission specialists who would typically be 30 - 40% cheaper.
