if the relay is clicking relay is ok.check central locking fuse #6 i beleaveif ok if its standard trans there is a switch on clutch pettal if it is automatic check safey nutral switch in shifter columm.
a quick way of finding out if its the starter is pull off the small wire on the side of the starter if the small wire gets power with a test light when working key swich its the starter.

SOURCE: 91 volvo 240 won't start after long trips/multiple short trips

If you mean that when you try and start it the engine actually turns over but does not start, then check out the following info (I had a similar problem on my 1989 Volvo 240. It would start fine sometimes, other times it would not start even though it would crank) . It turned out to be the fuel pump relay. 
When you try starting your car and you can not hear the fuel pump turned on (sound coming from the left underside of the car in front of the left rear tire), do the following if you think this is your issue (no cost for trouble shooting and takes 10 minutes to do):
The fuel pump relay is behind the access panel under the glove box. The panel is easy to remove - just unscrew each of the 5 panel knobs/fasteners a quarter turn and the panel comes out/down.  The fuel pump relay is a white plastic cartridge with a wire harness going to it. Just unclip it from the metal clip that retains it and leave it hanging there. When the car doesn't start and just cranks, lean over and tap the relay while you are trying to start the car (tapping it shakes the contacts inside that would normally switch over to complete the circuit when it is energized). If this is your issue and you can repeat the solution by tapping the relay when starting the car, buy a new one (I got mine at for around $14) and kept the old one in the trunk just in case.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Since you have both codes Fuel system lean and MAF low I would bet money on that you have an intake air leak after the throttle. Check all hoses connected to the intake manifold, gaskets, injectors are put in place etc.

Entire vehicle vibrates when at stand still/

if it is not missing then the problem is most likely engine mounts that have gotten hard from heat, this is the common reason and the 1st thing we look at if the engine is running ok and not the source of the chassis vibration.
