Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

My volvo 96 850

Okay so i was driving my car fine all day and i went in the house for a few hours and came back out and it wont start. Its hard to explain but you turn the key and i guess its running but its not. So i have the key turned where it would normally be running, it runs for 2 seconds then stops runs again on its own for 2 seconds then stops and then once more then it runs for maybe 10 seconds really badly and the whole car shakes. durning one time trying i noticed that the arrow light came on which means the winter mode is on. i read the manual and tried to turn it off or whatever now the car doesnt really start at all. My local volvo car repair sucks and wont be able to see it for a week. I need an easy answer that maybe i can fix. Please help!?!?!?!

Check the connection at the starter relay. The battery cable should run to the relay and another runs from the starter relay to the starter. If the connection seems fine, the relay itself may have a crack within., preventing a starting connection. If this isn't the problem, the starter solenoid may be getting to hot and not engaging the starter bendix.

Well, I have a 2001 cavalier and it started to act odd.


Skyler here is your fix and it is simple and cost effective:

Replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). $30 to $40 if you do it yourself or $70 to $95 if you have a service station do it. This will fix all of your problems related to the TRAC OFF light and transmission shifting into low gear.
