Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

1994 850 Volvo turbo won't start. There's a bit of water sweat coming from the ignition where I put the key in. I checked all of the fuses, but none are bad. I tried to jump it with my other car, but nothing still. What next.

    Does it crank and not start or does it not even crank (turn over)?

Immobilizer is shutting the car down most likely. Try a different key see if it happens to the other key or bring it to volvo and have them get a new key for it. And have them check the anntenna for the immobilizer. The immobilizer system will shut the car off if it does not sense the correct wireless signature from the key, after a few seconds. You can take the key out of the ignition then reinsert it, try again see if it starts.

More common problems not volvo specific:Plugged fuel injectors maybe, turbo controller problem maybe. Or an ignition control module problem after it heats up. Hard to tell.

I used to have that same exact model and year of car and it had a turbo controller problem that would only be noticeable if at high altitude, 5000ft or above and engine under significant load( climbing a long hill) the engine would surge up and down constantly. Replaced the turbo controller and it was fixed.

Good luck with that

I have a 1988 volvo 740 turbo with no spark. I tested the coil and it is good. with key on I am getting oscillating power. Also when the ignition is just turned to on and not cranked I can hear two...

check the crankshaft postioning sensor. this should be located at the rear of the engine where the tranny and engine mount. if its bad it will not let the coil put out spark. I had the same problem with my 940 and that solved my problem. try this, gently pull up on the sensor cable, then try to start the car. sometimes it will start, but if the sensor is completely gone, replace it.

1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon will not start all of a

You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.
