My volvo v40 some times won't start with key, if just makes a buzzing sound and a picture of a car with a cross comes on the dash board, then 60 mins later it starts, is there a cheap fix.

Turn on the headlights try to start if the lights go off or go very dull the battery most likely is flat

If the lights stay bright, make sure the transmission is in neutral and the park brake is on.
Hold the key in the start position and let someone tab the starter motor with a hammer, often the tarter engaged, The problem in this case point to worn brushes.

Good luck

Most likely the transmission range switch is failing.
Have someone check the transmission computer for codes.

Abs light comes on when driving above 60 mph but brakes work fine in my volvo v40


Brakes always work but ABS may be not functioning.
This is probably to be repaired by experienced repair shop.
Brakes are too serious to make experiments by yourself.

Volvo v40 alarm will not turn off with remote.How can I turn it off manually.It is not the fob battery.Car will start with the key but alarm keeps sounding.Neighbours are unimpressed.Have tried...


In some cases you may need to unlock the door but leave the key turned to the unlock position for a few seconds. Aside from that your RF receiver for the signal from the keyless could be at fault. Hope that helps.

My volvo v40 is making a grinding/scraping noise especially when turning. what is the most likely cause of this fault?


It sounds like you have a stone lodged in one of your wheels.They can lodge themselves between the brakes and backing plate
.Possible solution ,try reversing and slam on the brakes .This has worked for me several times. Good luck

Hi there have a picture of a car and a cross coming up on it? what does that mean?


According to the handbook for my 97 V40 that symbol means "immobilzer on"

The book says that ...........

"If the ignition is switched on and the key is recognised the lamp in the instrument panel will glow for 3 secs

If the signal of the key is NOT recognised the lamp will blink fast and the immobiliser will stay on.

If the lamp stays on after the 3 secs a system fault is diagnosed. Go to your dealer hope that helps please vote thanks
