Question about 2005 Volvo S40

2005 Volvo S40 won't start

I tried to reset the regular scheduled maintenance message per the instructions given to me by my local Volvo dealer - (turn to position I - hold down trip button, etc). After doing the exact steps, the Volvo now won't crank. The radio comes on and all the electrical seems fine, but it only clicks when you turn the key. Now I get an ''Engine Service Required'' message. Just bought the car for my daughter two weeks ago - HELP!!

Check battery voltage while trying to start car.  May need new battery.  Since you just bought the car the battery may be weak from sitting at a car lot for a while.

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.

"i" light on s40


A lot of new cars have this as a reminder for the owner to change the oil and when this is done the mechanic should reset the light to go out ,look in the owners manuel there should be something in it to tell you about this light other issues that will arise.

Time for Regular Maintenance Alert


Try this procedure. It works on some models.

1: Turn key to position #1
2: Push, and "HOLD" the Trip Reset button.
3: After 2 seconds, keep holding the trip reset while turning the ignition switch to position #2.
4: Keep holding the trip reset button in for about 15 seconds, the amber triangle in the dash should start flashing. Release the trip reset button when it does. Turn ignition off, on, then back off.

If that doesn't do it, you may have to see a dealer. Good luck.
