Does you vehicle have a pair of telescoping rods hooked to the tailgate? If so they are worn out they can be bought at your auto parts store. They are called LIFT SUPPORTS.

My tailgate will not stay up on my 2002 v70 wagon. Can you help?


You need new tailgate struts. Most auto parts stores sell them. Just stick a broom stick under the tailgate and remove the ceiling panel and unsnap the old ones and snap the new ones in. Make sure to install them exactly the way they were before you started.

Check the wiring to the rear hatch. The cables break and cause a variety fo problems like yours. You will have to take the plastic cover off and expose the cables.

2006 Volvo V50 Wagon: Tailgate will not open. Tried both remotes and clicked on driver door lock button.


This is most likely the Cable loom that runs into the top of the tailgate. A common symptom of this is that you also get a tailgate open message

Our 2001 V70 -AC shuts off during driving and wont come back on until car is stopped turned off and restarted, you can hear compressor kick on but wont stay on regardless of temp control setting.


The A/C needs to be serviced by a certified volvo tech or some one who know's a/c very well it can be just low charge or the speed sensor on the compressor.

Tail gate open sign staying on the computer


There's a plunger switch at the top of the tailgate that is pushed in as the tailgate is closed. Try pressing it by hand several times and see if the problem clears up. A quick spray of electronic contact cleaner might also help. As a final fix, remove the switch (2 screws), check the wires/connections. If the switch is bad you can get an exact replacement from Volvo or a pretty close replacement from your local auto parts store.

Tailgate washer not working v70 2001 fronts ok


It could be something simple like a blocked jet. If you take one of your wife's fine sewing needles and gently puch it into the centre of the nozzle it will work again if that is the probelm. It could be a problem with the motor and pump but they are durable so I would try the needle trick first.
