Check your wires and fuses, also it wouldn't hurt to have your battery tested i know several parts stores and shops do it for free, heck while your at it they could test your alternator too!..hope this helps :)

My '95 volvo 960 got hot, and battery died. Tried to jump start in and it would crank but not start.


Dead Battery

Always try & charge,it is unsafe to jump
a dead battery, as it may have shorted cells

If the engine rotates,turns over,cranks,it is the same thing

To say it won't crank or won't turn over is wrong
That is a no start

1---Engine does turn over,rotates,or cranks

2----Engine is a no start or won't start or won't fire, no iginition

My volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?


Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

My renault megane scenic only starts some days and others it is completely dead, I charge up the battery and it's fine for a few days and the dies again, got a new battery and the alternater is fine.


you may have a problem with the alternator sometimes not charging,may test okay sometimes, take a good look at the alternator and also make sure nothing is staying on, like inside lights, glove box light or brake lights, keep an eye on these things when parking the car for the day,something may be draining the battery down slowly.

Battery goes dead after several days, have tried


Connect the meter, then pull fuses one at a time until the current draw goes away.

You have now isolated the circuit that is the culprit. Troubleshoot that circuit and you'll find what is causing the problem. I would suspect there is a light staying on somewhere (engine light) or possibly ABS pump (if truck has ABS brakes). Maybe dash lights are on all the time.

Let me know what you find, or if you need more help.

1997 VOLVO 960 PARKING LIGHT DRAW


beneath the knob to turn on the lights, there is a small screw to turn lights completely OFF. see the owners manual to do this...if it is not in the right place, it can cause battery drain. You need a very small flat head screwdriver to change this position, but I've used one for eyeglasses successfully. Hope this helps.

Car not starting


First off, now, check the large fuses in the box on the fender. That is hopefully why nothing works now. If not, you may have REALLY messed something up. That is what they are for though, and should have caught the zap. If you get everything back where you can turn the motor over, and it still will not start, try to reset the security lock down. Put the key in the door and lock/unlock 5 times. It should start then.
