It is a connection for the rear wiper/washer on the V70 wagon. The same dash harness is used for both models so that connector just hangs there on the S70.

My Brake lights won't work on a 1998 Volvo S70


There are several possible reasons. Obvious ones might be checking for fuses that are burned out. Second would be making sure you are getting good connections to your brake lamps (all 3). Third, check the brake light switch at the pedal. And last, Volvo Part Number 9442303 is a brake lamp failure relay that can go bad. It's not inexpensive, but probably more than likely the issue. One way to check is to find out if your cruise control works. If it does not, it is likely the relay. It is grey and flat on all sides. Earlier model Volvos had round red ones. Check the location in the service manual.

I have a 1998 Volvo S70. In cold start up, car runs 15 seconds, then dies out. It won't start after that. I've cleaned throttle body, cleaned out air induction pump, and replaced air pump relay.


Does the car throw a check engine code? If so, what is that code?

This could also possibly be the ignition. My V70 had a bit of trouble on a couple of cold mornings. I replaced the ignition switch (located in the steering column on the opposite side of the key hole).

Also check the fuel pressure and fuel filter. Could be a pump and filter problem. Fuel condenses at lower temperatures and if the pump is having issue pushing the thicker fuel through the filter, take a look at that to be an issue.

Lastly, check the throttle and the fuel injectors. Run fuel system and injector cleaner like HEAT through the fuel tank to see if it helps.

My wipers quit working


did you check the fuses? there might be a fuse for the wipers under the hood as well as in the fuse box inside. If its not the fuses then it could be either the windshield wiper motor is burned out or the arm that connects the wipers to the wiper motor may have fallen off or more than likely the joint where the arm from the wiper motor connects to the wipers themselves wore out and came apart that happens alot mostly on older vehicles though, try turning the wipers on high an then listen under the hood you should hear the wiper motor unless its junk but if you hear it then the problem is with where the motor connects to the wipers, if you don't hear anything at all coming from underneath the windshield behind the firewall under the hood then your wiper motor is either junk or theirs a short in the wiring going to the motor or there's a blown fuse you missed somewhere id look in the owners manual just to make sure there's no fuses for the wipers u don't know about, it could also be that the switch on the steering column that you turn to turn the wipers on and off went out im not sure how you'd test that though... if you cant figure it out after you try what i suggested let me know ill try and figure out if there's a way to test the switch.

Volvo s70, 1998, heater not blowing hot air


Are you getting coolant flow through the heater core? These cars have common problems with heater cores but they are easy to replace. IPD has a Video on U-Tube with step by step instructions. Also if you are in very cold weather have you checked your anti-freeze? I saw a Toyota last year freeze completely because of no anti-freeze. It took days to thaw out the heater core and they were lucky that the ice did not blow it apart. It took me hours of starting it and running up to a low temp and shutting it down to get it drivable.

Volvo 1998 S70 headlight and indicators won't always turn on


I have had this happen before - this is the multifunction switch on the steering column. The one on my Ford took about 10 minutes to change (two bolts). My problem - I would turn my lights off, then turn them back on and nothing, then they would suddenly pop on. after a bit my lights would not come on at all. I had to drive with my Flash to Pass lights for a couple of days when driving at night.

I hope this helps!

1999 s70 volvo driver door won't open from outside or inside


I am working on this RIGHT NOW. Remove panel (see Utube) remove white cover (Torx 25) from interior of exterior handle. You will see that lifting the handle pushes a rod down The rod is attached to the bottom half of the mechanism via a cheapo plastic connection, that can work loose. It is like a screw shaft (top) that squeezes (sideways) into a blue plastic channel which merely pinches the "screw shaft" to hold it. The connection has come loose. Squeeze upper shaft into (lower) blue channel. Added tiny bit of epoxy to bond "screw shaft" onto blue plastic gripper. Done. Saved $500.

1998 Volvo S70 left turn signal does not work


That return spring mechanism, is in the 'airbag clockspring' or we call it a contact reel. this is a VERY expensive part. You can take your switch off of the steering column, there is a white button sticking out, you should be able to manipulate that up and down (for left and right movement) if you can verify that the switch cancels while you manually do it, its the clockspring, if you can not do it in one direction only, then its the switch
