Hi rodknob,

What are side lights ? are they a parking light ?
Think you need to wire the side light switch feed wire to a relay and have the relay power on when the car has Accessory Power from the key Switch accessory wire.

Using a delay relay means the lights can stay on for up to 660 seconds after you turn off the car accessory key switch.
Did a car with a normal relay off accessory wire as I use to forget the headlights and flatten battery.

Or you might be able to use

but you would need to ask them how to wire it to the headlight switch and if it turns on the headlights in the dark or inclement weather.
Like my
You might need to use a relay to feed the power to the headlight switch depends on current involved .
Holden commodore cruise does this as a standard feature via an auto headlight setting on the headlight switch..

How to get AC to blow cold all the time on my 2000 Volvo v70?


You'll need to have someone check the refrigerant charge with a manifold gauge.
If the low-pressure side is lower than it should be but the high-pressure side is normal or showing higher than it should, your orifice tube may be clogged.
Seriously, start by having the refrigerant pressures checked.

I have a 2002 Volvo v70, 2.4t . The signal light on the right side stay on at all the time


I would think it is a short in the turn signal switch but I wonder how it is getting power with the key switch off.
I would unplug the switch and see if the lights go off. Could also be a short in the hazard switch.

Battery Light staying on


This is probably the carbon brushes in the alternator, that are worn, and thus not functioning correctly.
It is possible, if you find someone with a similar alternator, to just change the brushes at a fraction of the cost of a complete unit.
But it's worth a look, the brushes are located on the back side of the alternator, with two or three screws to remove.
Hope that fixedya.
Don't forget the thumbs up

Engine light on


The service light has nothing to do with the engine light. It can't be trigged by the ECM.
The service light are only trigged by one of 3 counters (time since last service, engine hours or mileage).

The service light are easy to reset if you got a YM1999-2000 car.
1. Put the ignition on to pos.1 and press down the trip reset button on the instrument cluster and keep it depressed.
2. Put the ignition on to pos.2,
3. When the service light starts to flash then release the trip reset button. Now you have reset the service reminder lamp.

You need to read out the DTC's from ECM to be able to fix the check engine light.

1998 volvo v70 radio displays off


Turn the key to position ONE (turn one position from where the key is inserted). The radio should be left on. Make sure the a/c blower is in the off position. There should be no dash lights on. It should reset somewhere between two to eight hours. After at least two hours it should read CODE again.

If you cut the power, or the battery goes dead it won't reset.

I hope this helps.
