Question about 1995 Volvo 960
I replaced the battery and the car started normally but I didn't drive the car. The next day the car won't start. All the electrical equipment seems to be working but when I turn the switch to crank the engine I get nothing. I tried jumping the car thinking the battery had somehow discharged, still it won't start. As I said all the bells & whistles seem to be working (horn, radio, dash lights & indicators). I heard the starter switch click and then nothing. Any ideas?
You need to replace the Park Neutral Safety Sensor on the bottom of the Transmission. Should only be a $125.00 part. Your battery and starter are fine. Replace it and iy will be fixed.

Had the same problem,try shifting the gearshift lever back and forth from park to L3 several times.apparently moisture can build up on the PNP contacts this should resolve the problem. T Moore b'ham AL

Try shifting the transmission to neutral and try starting the engine, if it starts, the gear position sensor is bad, which is very common on this car.
Or, the starter may be bad, not common, but possible!
