Not an expert on this, but I would change the oil and oil filter and you might want to check all belts/hoses under the hood for cracking and replace as necessary. It's likely you'll have to do that after a car sitting idle so long. Don't know if spark plugs should be replaced after not firing for that long, but maybe you want to take a look at those as well.

My 2005 Volvo S60 2.0 T has been sitting for 12 months with a cracked radiator what other items do i need to change besides the radiator?


Allot depends on how it was stored. Was it in a garage or outside? Was it prepped or just parked?

At a minimum:
change oil, new coolant (probably obvious), new wiper blades, get tires checked for rot or flat spots from sitting, check brakes and brake fluid, power steering fluid checked.

2001 volvo s60 has imobolizer active. Will not start, tried disconnecting battery and different keys does anyone have a suggestion on hot to reset or fix?


When you disconnect the battery, short the posative and negative cables together for 5 minutes. Then reconnect the battery and try to start it. If this doesn't work, the car will have to be scanned with Vida at a Volvo dealer or an independant shop that has Vida.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T starting problem


This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.

Catalytic converter check engine light 2001 s60 volvo


usually if you start to hear a rumble, and by rumble i mean it sounds like a bunch of pieces of metal are clanking around in your exhaust then the catalytic converter needs to be repaired. It could also be the oxygen sensor which is located on top of the converter. Volvo did an interesting job of having them sit on top of each other.
