Completely stopped working a few weeks ago and I had to physically remove the gas cap lock from the inside to fill up. Who has suggestions where to start troubleshooting?

You need to reset it. Lock and unlock 5 times with the remote.

Try rolling all the windows up, making sure all doors and the hood are shut and locking it with the button on the master switch. Then try unlocking it with the key.

Remotes are cheap enough, in the $35 neighborhood through someplace like 'keylessentryremote.com' :) or some such (I can't remember where I bought my extras, maybe through eBay), and darned nice to have. The gouge comes in when the dealer has to program them... something like $40-80. I kissed up to my dealer and got them to do it for free.
But mine's a 2000, and I think '98's are different because the ignition systems are the older style? Scottish would know.

btw, your pups are AWESOME :thumbup:

Why roll all of the windows up?
Something to do with window position and the alarm. That's how I created this issue on my s70.

There’s no sensor on a P80 that detects window position.

Unless you have the extremely rare optional glass breakage
sensor, I’d recommend leaving at least ONE of the windows
down whenever messing about with any weird lock issue.
( The experience of getting locked out is never optimal
and you never know what a rogue alarm will do...)
