Many things can cause this on your 740. Fuel pump, fuel pump relay, rpm sensor, MAF sensor, radio suppression relay. I've never seen the coil fail on these era Volvo's, ever. And I've diagnosed at least 50 of these with stalling problems. Check the codes, and when it wont start, check for spark and fuel pressure, you're likely missing one of them.

run fault codes to get some idea of which sensor is faulty . You have replaced the MAF sensor but what about the MAP sensor as well as it may have been that unit

Sounds like a combination of problems. First your battery is dead, and your alternator isn't putting out enough to run car. As for relay, replace it. I had a coil pack go out on me after I had other electrical issues so that's possible too. Go to VWvortex.Com and search the forums

You have a defective alternator most likely, have it tested by any Autozone it is free.

Doors don't unlock when car is put in park


I believe this is a user settable option(went back to factory default when the battery died).The owners manual would be the place to look!(If you don't have the manual,scour the wrecking yard for a same year/model in a glovebox).You probably have to do some annoying sequence to change this option,most likely you won't figure it out by trial and error(it's usually changed by holding the lock or unlock button while putting in park while standing on your head and *******(hee-hee!) or something stupid like that.

My 2006 volvo s40 won't start and the key (remote) does not work. Had to use regular key to open the door. alarm still on and car won't start.


I had the same problem when my battery went flat and tried to use jumper cables connected to another vehicles battery. I called Volvo and they said I need to disconnect the battery terminal to reset the computer. After re-conecting it the remote control worked again and I was able to jump start the car. Maybe your car's computer went into a similar state.
