    sounds like the anti theft system has gone south, does the light for the security system flash? In any event u need to take this to a dealer, they are the only ones that have the equipment and know how to fix this without taking hours and replacing un ness parts.

Possible a earth strap corroided inside the casing, requires wiring diagram and checking all power and earth points and resistance through the wires to make sure that they are ok these cars suffe with the loom across the front of the subframe corroiding and this could be causing the problem

I've had the problem in an 18-year-old V40. The starter relay was buzzing when the ignition key was in the driving position, but when I turned it to the starting position nothing happened. Connecting a jumper lead between the negative battery terminal and any metal flange on the engine let it start.

Now I have It to find the engine earthing strap and replace it.

Trying to figure out what is wrong with my my 2000 volvo s40 its wont start when i turn the key it just clicks is it the battery or could it be the starter


A weak battery will make the "clicking" sound you hear, also bad connections, loose battery cables or worn battery cables. Jump start the car to see if it cranks, if it does, charge or replace battery.

S40 will not start, where is starter located?


Underneath vehicle passenger side Look to where the tranny meets the engine block, then just a little further you will see the starter.

Volvo s40 is hard to start but when started runs perfect


it could be the problem with starter motor, give it to technician tell him to check starter, if problem it there then he will replace carbon brush and may one bearing ,and if require he will replace armature.
before showing to tech. please check both battery cable are connected properly and it is clean no corrosion , it can also cause starting problem.

Why wont my 2000 sunfire start?


starter relay,ignition switch,park switch.need to use a volt meter and start at the starter,see if you have at least 12 volts.if there is have the battery tested.does your head lights come on?next no voltage, go to the fuse box under the hood and check for (2) 12 volt powers with the key on and a good ground.if ok replace the relay.next move the trans shifter to neutral with foot on brake and try and start if it starts you need park switch.if not next is the ign.switch to test,you will need to locate the starter wire and check for voltage when starting if none replace the ign.switch hope this helped.also the alternator has nothing to do with the cranking of the engine on this car.

Volvo 2.0 S40cd 1996 . Battery not flat but won't start , ignition lights flashing , engine won't turn over . Lights ok and central locking ok . tried to jump start from another vehicle but no effect .


hi, the problem you are having sounds like the starter motor has packed up if when you turn the key you get nothing or you might even hear a faint click, if you open the bonnet then get someone to turn the key you might hear a faint click coming from the starter motor. This click indicates the starter motor needs replacing.

you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer give it a few good hard hits this might get the starter motor working for a while if not then it needs replacing at once if it works then this isnt a permanent fix so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
