SOURCE: 1999 Volvo V70 wont start

I had the same problem with the 2000 v70 XC I bought in Dec. 08. I replaced the battery, then the antenna ring (around ignition; part of the immobilizer system), and bought new keys as sometimes the chips in them do go bad. Also, if you have a key for another car with an immobilizer system on the same keyring, take it off. The multiple signals can confuse the immobilizer system. I think the antenna ring may have been one issue as, consistent with what repairpal stated, I got a crank and the engined turned over for about a second or 2 one time and then it died. The antenna ring (and the new keys) were relatively inexpensive. That worked for about a month and then I got no crank at all.  I had the starter replaced, but in hindsight I think that may have not been the problem.  I think the problem was the starter not getting juice. The starter was a very expensive solution. About 2 weeks after having the starter replaced, it wouldn't crank again.  I took it to a Volvo dealership and gave them the history. They found a corroded wire near the starter and, at least until now, that seems to have done the trick. Labor on the wire was about $100 at the dealer. Searching Volvo forums for those who have had a similar problem, I have found that others have had the "bad wire" problem.  If you are told to replace the starter by your mechanic, my advice to anyone having this problem is to have check to make sure the starter is getting juice before replacing the starter as replacing the starter (parts and labor) cost me about $650-$700.  If they find that the starter is not getting juice, they can check for wire corrision starting at the starter and working their way back.

SOURCE: timing belt replacement frequency

error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.

SOURCE: sunroof will not operate

The first thing to check is the motor it should be under the interior light for operation and next is the tracking system for the sunroof and try to lubricate it so the roof does not hang up these motors on volvo sunroofs are not that strong and even a stuck gasket around the top can make it stuck beacause of the rubber getting hot from the sun

SOURCE: fog lights volvo s40 1999

Only a dealership, or a repair shop that specializes in Swedish vehicles, can do this for you. I've been told that it needs a relay. WRONG!!! Swedish Auto Repair did it for me in 7-8 minutes tops! It just need to be activated by the Vida software and you're done!!! No downloads are needed.

1997 V90 VOLVO STATION WAGON alarm was activated can't start car. I have no key remote and don't know how to shut off. My vehicle wash just purchased used. I don't know what to do

You should be able to disable the alarm by putting the key in the door and turning it, or by putting it in the igintion switch and turning it. One of the two should disarm the alarm. If that will not work, then you could disconnect the battery, call the dealer and get a key fob for the alarm system.

Temp gauge at half way even when engine stone cold.

Sounds a bit like a bad earth somewhere. Have a look at the wiring and make sure that all contacts are free from rust; especially at the front of the car.
