How to change a fuel pressure sensor on a 2006 Volvo v70 2.5 T wagon
This is actually very simple, if a bit messy.
Put a couple of rags under the sensor, remove the connector from it. Undo the cap on the Schrader valve. It's on the fuel rail on the opposite side of the FPR. Press the center with a rag over it and let it soak up the gas that comes out.
Then go back to the FPR and undo the T25 screw from it, then with gently pull it out while twisting it back and forth a little and let the rags soak up the mess under it.
Then stick the new one in, tighten the screw, replace the connector and turn on the ignition a couple of times to push fuel up to the rail and pressurize it, then start the car.
My sensor failed by 'hiccuping' once in a while. It would spike the pressure to 120 psi, then drop to 20 psi, then normalize at 43 psi again, all within a few seconds.

Lost keyless entry remote
Unfortunately there is not an easy answer for this. Volvo remotes are difficult to program and most mechanics and / or locksmiths won't touch them.
My company does sell these remotes, but like I said above, it is difficult to find anyone to program them. If you take it to the dealer, they will want you to purchase the keyless entry remote from them, and of course charge you a huge fee!
If you can find a locksmith or mechanic in your area to program a keyless entry remote for your Volvo I would suggest purchasing the remote online and save some cash. https://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/Volvo-Key-Fob-Remote-Replacements-s/1855.htm

Why is my "fault in the electronic system" light on?
The light is an engine malfunction light and is registered by the vehicle's ECM (engine control module), the vehicle's onboard computer. The computer is set to read variables from the car's many sensors. If a sensor gives a reading that is out of spec, it lights the light. Under the dashboard by the driver's knee is a socket that is called an OBD11 (onboard diagnostics version 2) port. When a OBD11 code reader is connected to it, it gives a P Code and this tells what is wrong. Garages will normally read the code for free in the hope of getting the work. Connecting and reading literally takes less than two minutes. I have a reader called FIXD which relays information to my iPhone.

2010 Volvo V70 Emission Light has came on. Can I still drive car. What does it mean? Can it be easily fixed?
That's a light I never like. But it could be a simple fix. Tighten the gas cap. If the car senses something isn't right in that area on comes the emissions light. It can take a couple of trips back and forth to work or the store after you tighten it before the light turns off. Please don't over tighten it. There should be instructions on the cap or in that area, such as 'tighten until it clicks' or such.
If it's the original gas cap, consider replacing it. You should be able to get one at the auto parts store. Just make sure the cap is designed to fit your car. If it doesn't fit correctly your car will still sense something is wrong and that light will stay on.
