Key in Ignition or Door Open Chime and Remote Problems

Postby DAJ » 09 Oct 2010, 21:11

My 1999 XC-70 just started having the door (or key in the ignition, not sure which) chime ringing whenever you open the door, even with the key out of the ignition. Additionally, the remote has stopped working to lock and unlock the doors and tailgate.

Any ideas? It has 133k miles on it. Thanks in advance!

It thinks there's still a key in the ignition - thus the remote won't work.

Take some graphite lock spray (please don't spray anything else in there!) and spray the insides of the ignition, then insert the key in/out a few times and see if it will un-stick.

A learning experience is one of those things that says, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that."
