Question about 2006 Volvo S40
2005 Volvo S40 - Had a key error message and ended up having car towed and ignition barrel replaced. Work for 1 week. Now won't start again. Message is "Immobilizer, see manual" and then "Steering failure, service required." Help! Car wont start. Immobilizer message,air bag message, brake message, steering message, all of these messages appear at different attempts to start the car. Makes a ticking sound under the glove box. Won't start at all or turn over. When I tried to get a jump the dash lights are on but still won't start.
Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

SOURCE: Car won't start
If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.
