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?
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

Re: I have a 1995 Volvo 960 Sedan won't start
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!

take a lead from your battery .then reach under the inlet manifold. remove the 10mm bolt and copper washers one each side of that bolt. that is the feed line from your fuel rail to the cold start injector .now remove each of the ten mil bolts holding on your fuel rail . now remove the clips holding the injectors to your fuel rail. place some clothes under the fuel rail and lift off . care needed due to fuel wear eye protection due to fuel pressure..
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.
usually its the sway bar links that rattle horribly,it sounds like the suspension is falling out...but its not, the sway bar links are usually pretty cheap and not bad too replace,if you can get under the car grab them and give em a good pull ans u will usually feel a little play in the ball and sockets on the ends of them,hope this helps,or have your hand on one and have a friend rock the car side to side and u might feel it then
yes, it could but starters usually give you an indication. They drag, grind but usually let you know before they just quit. Could be the battery, or more likely a bad battery connection. And batteries are cheaper!
It could be the voltage regulator trying to charge a dead battery. (It could burn out if you keep doing this)
Or it could be a lifter noise, rust on the belt pulley from sitting in one position for two years. Buy a good battery, change the oil and put some fresh gas and fuel stabilizer. It might be nothing serious!
