Question about 2007 Volvo XC70 Cross Country

1 Answer

Volvo won't start. Key will only go into 1st & 2nd position wont go into neutral. The battery is charged. We have found info that the starter wire (black one next to red one) could be corroded but

The only video I can find is for 00-07 Volvo's and my black wire doesn't seem to have a way to disconnect like the one in the video did. Any ideas? Thank you.

It might be the ignition switch. Not the starter. If you aren't even turning the engine over then it's probably the switch or the solenoid on the starter. If it's the solenoid then just replace the whole starter.

2001s10 starter won't engage makes no noise everything else works changed the ignitions switch could it be the neutral switch . I you play with the key sometimes it well start


I looked at info for the v6.
Two voltage circuits at starter motor. One comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in crank position and is wired through neutral switch, then comes the starter relay. Use a test light to check for voltage. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Any testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. There are fuses involved, not only check fuses, check voltage on fuse circuits. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.

Why wont my Chevy s10 Blazer 1991 start and have power to the cab I have headlights I have power going to my starter battery and alternator


Do the dash lites come on when you turn the key on? Are you saying the starter doesn't crank?

I'd have to be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all clean and tight.

The starter has two voltage circuits, one is hot all the time, the other circuit, sometimes called the starter s terminal, goes hot with the key in the crank position and is wired through neutral switch, if auto tranny. Did you try cranking it in neutral?

Taures 2002 won't start battery and starter checked out good


Not really following your story.
When you say it will not start, the starter would only affect things if the engine will not crank.
If the engine will not crank, you would need to know if the battery is fully charged and if the starter has power and ground.
If the battery is low, something may be draining it overnight. If the battery is charged, the starter should have power.
The neutral safety switch or key switch could be the problem if the small wire on the starter has no power when the key switch is in the start position.

Mini van wont start battary charged new altanator and starter all wires are grounded


Do you mean it won't start, or won't crank.
You should have a neutral safety switch between the key switch and the starter to prevent you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
A defective switch would keep the engine from cranking.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter on the wire from the key switch and go from there.

1991 dodge ram van wont start


To clarify - the engine cranks then starts.
If it won't crank in any gear, I would check the neutral safety switch first.
You can also jumper the starter solenoid to make sure the starter will crank the engine manually without the circuit from the key switch.

I replaced my battery this week on my 99 Yukon. Truck started fine for several days. Now it won't turn over, at all. All the equipment inside works, so the battery is not dead - it just wont ever try...


Check for power at the small wire at the starter with the key inthe crank position. If there is power than the starter is bad or the connections at the battery are not good. If there is no power put the trans in neutral and check for power again. If there is still no power let me know and I will get you some more info on trouble shooting the ignition switch and the PRNDL switch.

Car won't start. Changed starter. Still wont start. This starter can not be checked when it is off the car.


Hi there?
Check that the battery is charged, you can do this by turning the lights on and see if they are bright as narmal.
There are 2 wires going to the starter motor, thick and thin wire. The thick wire is connected straight to the positive terminal of the battery. The thin wire is connected to the relay which is operated by the key. You can power the starter motor by powering up the terminal that the thin wire goes to. Make sure that the thick wire has positive loltage from the battery.

You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.
