We just had this problem, and we replaced the battery - it was due- but a properly recharged battery should solve this.

SOURCE: 2000 s40 runs good but very hard to start

I ran into this a month ago. Check your battery. Volvo's and other euro cars are very picky about cranking voltage. have a friend put a volt meter across the battery while you are cranking. If it drops much below 11 volts, its probally not going to start. Have a shop load test the battery. Hopefully, this is the cheap fix to your problem. (my other customer had spent over $300 at the dealer)

Trying to figure out what is wrong with my my 2000 volvo s40 its wont start when i turn the key it just clicks is it the battery or could it be the starter


A weak battery will make the "clicking" sound you hear, also bad connections, loose battery cables or worn battery cables. Jump start the car to see if it cranks, if it does, charge or replace battery.

Volvo s40 engine ticks, revs and cuts out


goodday! I asked a question about my S40 Volvo 2001 high idle. The answer is great, but I did not use it because I found out that it the car was giving another fault.

there are times when the engine woulld crank for a long time without firirng. when it finally does it would be powerless to an extent that it doesn't respond to the gas padel. its like it activates some form of inhibitor. When it behaves like that the only way to eventually start it is to disconnect the battery and wait for a few seconds. Now I wonder if it is still the idle motor
