Question about 2006 Volvo S40

1 Answer

I have a 2006 volvo s40 and every morning when i go out to start it it is dead. I took the battery in to get tested and it is a good battery. It has no problem running once it is jumped, and runs all day and starts all day no problem. however my key battery is pretty dead. would that cause this problem?

If the battery is charging and holding a charge all day then you could have a short some where that is draining the battery overnight.

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.

My volvo s40 fails to start i went out in it this morning and went back to it and turned the key, an engine relay clicks every half a second and the lights on the dash extinguish as if its going to start...


try jumping it first. If it will jump, you probably have a battery or alternator issue. Both can be tested to determine which is bad. If it does not jump, the troubleshooting steps are different.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

2000 s40 runs good but very hard to start


I ran into this a month ago. Check your battery. Volvo's and other euro cars are very picky about cranking voltage. have a friend put a volt meter across the battery while you are cranking. If it drops much below 11 volts, its probally not going to start. Have a shop load test the battery. Hopefully, this is the cheap fix to your problem. (my other customer had spent over $300 at the dealer)

2006 volvo s40 50,000 mi. noticed a noise under hood that sounded like a belt slipping. sounded more like it was coming from the back of the motor. With the car running,I took the oil dip stick out and the...


The oil filter housing also houses the pcv system. What causes the noise is that there is a check valve in the pcv system that is supposed to regulate the pressure in the crankcase. The valve gets stuck and causes vacuum to build in the crankcase, which in turn sucks air wherever it can causing the noise, which is also why when you pull the dipstick it stops. This can also cause a check engine light with codes for fuel trim. The oil filter housing will need to be replaced. Good news is that Volvo extended the warranty on these to 100K miles so it should be free of charge at the dealer. One thing to watch for is oil leaks after the replacement from the camshaft seals. If air can get past a seal, usually oil can too. If the seals leak too long it can contaminate the timing belt and cause it to break, which causes a lot of damage.
