    In my V-70 T5, when I press the lock button on the keyfob, the door
    doesn't stay locked. The driver door lock keeps popping back up.
    sometimes the fob has to be pressed like 10 times for the door to stay
    locked.

    I can use the key to manually lock the door, but that remote is mighty
    convenient

    Very common problem, it's a microswitch in the lock mechanism, not
    available separately. You need a new lock.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.

    Scott, I have the very same problem with my 2001 V70, only the drivers door
    seems to be the problem. It also occurs when using the central locking
    button. Hope you get an answer.
