You could try another key if you have one. The key has a chip in it that the computer must recognize before it will start. There is a possibility that the key transponder has failed.

If that doesn't work you will have to take it to a reputable shop or to the dealer so they can run the diagnostics. There could be a problem with the antenna, the module, or just a communication problem between the two.

Sorry wish I had better news.

Hi can you tell me where is the immobiliser on


I heard you can hit the unlock button onyour key to sometimes to reset this. It is most likely under the dash or behind the side panel on the passenger side. This the the wll where the pasengers feet will hit, and there may be a access hole to pop out. I hope this helps.

My volvo s40 2007 model was involve in accindent,Now it won't start.Message immobiliser try start again


If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Since you were in an accident it could be a safety related issue...such as a steering box fault. Your owners manual has some information in it on the immoblizer.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take time to rate me a fixya,
