1999 volvo won't start

My car won't start we hooked up to the computer and it reads P1081, it used to start then turn off as I was driving now it just doesn't start. What can this be?

    P1081 is an evaporative emissions code. This is NOT causing your car not to start. Please update this with more information, What type of car is this? how many miles? does the engine turn over? when was the last timing belt done?

You do realize no one ever has to go to a dealer,ever,

do the same as a dealer?

On your year there would be something , like cranking , if the security is set. I would start with checking the fuses and then work my way to the starter relay. then I would go to the starter.

My 2006 volvo s40 won't start and the key (remote) does not work. Had to use regular key to open the door. alarm still on and car won't start.


I had the same problem when my battery went flat and tried to use jumper cables connected to another vehicles battery. I called Volvo and they said I need to disconnect the battery terminal to reset the computer. After re-conecting it the remote control worked again and I was able to jump start the car. Maybe your car's computer went into a similar state.

While driving my 1999 c70 volvo the transmission stopped working. after turning off /on the car it continued to work fine then it started up againg. turned it off/on and it continued to work fine, what...


Assuming it is not a heat or fluid problem I expect it lies within the electronics of the tranny. When you turn the car off/on you tend to re-boot the tranny's ECU and the problem is then cleared, much like we find on a home PC (at least my home PC) I'd get it by a dealer, I believe there are codes the dealer can read for any issues.

I hope this may have assisted you,
Tom
