It's most likely, looking for a security key, not a regular key. Security keys have a chip in them, to identify them as a valid key, not a screwdriver. It's a passive anti theft device. Available from the dealers.

Wont start cranks no gauges slashed key symb on dash lit


Sounds like your Sentry Key Immobiliser Module may be at fault. That's a Main Dealer Problem. Try disconnecting the battery lead for a minute or 2 then reconnect. Red.

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.


Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

Reset prosedures for volvos


Ok when you move the key to start the car. you need the following definitions.

pos 0 equals car off
pos 1 equals acessory position
pos 2 equals run position (NOT START)
pos 3 equals start position

check your drivers information module, and see that your triip display is in trip 1 (T1)

then put your car into position 1. push and HOLD the trip reset meter. WHILE HOLDING the reset button, rotate the key to position 2. Hold the reset button until you see the triangle in the dash flash yellow. Once this starts flashing remove your finger from the reset button. Shut the car off, verify light is out. repeat once if necessary.

Dosn't turn over


I am Having the same problem with a 2005 wrangler rubicon unlimited and when I step on the brake some dash lights come on including one with a circle slash over a key on the top left of the dash! I called the dealer and they told me to bring it in because the Vallet computer lost its memory code, I think its strange since I do not have an alarm
