Question about 1999 Volvo V70
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.
BE CAREFUL!!!! Don't be affraid to get a second opinion for another Stealorship

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.
