Question about 1996 Volvo 960
When the sunroof is open I can see a drain hole at the front left base of the sunroof and there is also a similar drain at the right front base of the sunroof. To test the drains I poured water into each of the drains. The right side was fine and the water exited behind the right front wheel. On the left side a portion of the water drained into the car near the molding between the dash and the left side front door. A portion of the water drained properly behind the left front wheel.
How can I fix this problem? I thought about putting a plastic tube into the drain and sealing edges at the drain entrance. What do you think?

be very careful there are plastic clips i belive you must pull them either down or straight out get a putty knife behind there and look with a flashlight,,, also instead of remove the b piller you can buy some 14 Gage solid cooper wire and push it thru the drain to clear the blockage please rate -jeff

If you need the security code, you need to call a Volvo dealer and give them the VIN number, provided it is the same stereo the car came with. Most dealers will do it for free, if you can't find one, call Boston Volvo Village.

go to your local volvo dealership, and you must have the car in your name, but ask one of the mechanics if you can have the code for your radio, they'll look it up and give it to you I believe.

Sounds like you've got an issue with your alarm module, causing the immobilizer to activate (also known as a "start inhibitor"). I'm not sure what type of alarm you've got, but this will probably help you find out if there is something wrong with it:
There is a panel with relays on it behind the dash. At the bottom of the steering column, by the drivers feet, there is a panel. Remove it to get access to the relay panel (just a couple of torx screws, no breakable clips as far as I can remember). Remove the "double size" relay (probably marked 210-211). Put a wire between the terminals 50E and 50F. This will hotwire the immobilizer and make sure that it always activates when turning the key.
Drive around with the wire in place instead of the relay for a while to see if this helps. If it does you'll know that the problem is related to the alarm system. Keep in mind that you will be without alarm and therefore probably also without remote central locking while doing this.
Make sure that the wire is connected firmly enough so it doesn't come loose. You can also put a fuse on it if it makes you sleep better at night ;)
