Why dose my 2002 Volvo xc90 d5 not start in the mornings


I have similar problem different vehicle, my ignition was not connecting well and the glow plugs were not initially getting properly hot, not sure how to fix it/ I disconnected the battery entirely and unplugged what I could and switched # 1 for #3 plug and waited overnight and charged the battery out of the truck, next day put all back and attached battery and started right up right since , so try take out battery and charge better first.

Car won't start first time each day but after the first start. It starts every time during the day


That is most likely a problem with your choke. If you have a diesel, it would be glow plugs. Also your fuel pressure can bleed off over night if you have even a small fuel system leak.

try if this works\improves your situation;

turn the key to ON but don't crank, let it sit for 2 seconds. Do this 2-3 times, then put it in the ON position, wait 2 seconds then crank. As for what it is, could be spark plugs, fuel pump\line issue, etc..

Quick check is to take a fairly thick cable from the positive terminal of the battery and touch it onto the glow plug connector , it should give a healthy spark as it makes the connection , no spark no glow plug

Try replacing the spark plugs, if it does not improve you will probably need to have the carburetor inspected.

Difficult start


i have the same problem on my 306 i changed the battery and starting was much improved although i still need to change one of my glow plus i cannot get to * You have probably shorted out the +12v supply wire to the top of the glow plug. It is easily done and is easily corrected. Examine all of your wires to the glow plugs. At the end of each one should be a small ring crimp going over the threaded post and held on with either a 6mm or 8mm nut. These crimps should be only touching the threaded post, and not the glow plug body. They are very thin metal and easily bent to touch the body of the glow plug, hence not giving the heater element inside the juice to work. Good luck space cadet.
