Check the connectors to the temperaure sensor, I think it has been crossed with the knock sensor. I had an earlier model volvo with same problem it was like that since I bought it. I found out somebody crossed the temperature sensor with the knock sensor. It took me a while to figure it out. I had to use an schematic diagram.

I tried to start my car this morning. There was no electricity at all and i mean at all, The power locks won't even work nothing. The car won't start, it's perfectly silent when you turn


You would need to use a meter or test light to find out what exactly is dead. It could be a short in the fuse box, or a bad connection in the harness, or at the battery or starter.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.
If nothing on the truck works, you would start at the battery cables and work back to the key switch.

Did it start doing this after installing the new battery?
Does it crank slow? If that's the symptom, I don't see how it could be many of the other things you listed. For example: a clogged fuel filter won't cause the starter to turn the motor slowly. Fuel filters rarely are the issue anyway.
If it's cranking fine but not starting when it's hot, start by checking electrical connections, primarily at sensors. Look for loose or corroded connections. Also, make sure the cables are clean and tight at the battery. I've seen some corrosion cause issues. Also check relays and fuses to be seated good and clean. Maybe wiggle them a little to make sure they are seated properly.
Unfortunately, electrical issues can be a pain to sort out.

Car won't start


I'd probably start with cleaning my connections at battery, & making sure my battery has a full charge. If not cured, maybe a new battery is required. If it will start with a jump, try running it for a couple of minutes with boosters on, and if all appears o.k. , change your battery.
