2000 Volvo s80 clicks but won't start


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

===========





Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Its makin this clicking sound when you try to start it, and it wont start.


The clicking sound is the solinodfor the started eighter your battery is vary weak or there is a bad connection at the battery or a main ground cable or at the starter it self its likely this can be fixed by moveing wires and seeing if the problen goes away but do it one at a time so you konw what or where the connection problem If if you have a battery tester check that first or see if you can jump start with booster cables if it starts its likely the battery

2000 V70R ocassionaly not starting.


Put a monitor on the starter...
How many miles on the starter (original or replaced)?
Always advisible to change it if older than 6yrs old or it may fry your battery, solanoid/coil packs, and starter.

Have it double checked... it is tricky as it is fickle.

2001 volvo v70 will not start , put key in ignition but makes only small scratching noise


if all other functions are working this sounds like the start motor is defective. if the motor is worn it may turn slowly but too showly for the drive head to jump out and engage the engine flywheel.
to test your battery is ok try starting the car with the headlights on if the battery is weak the lights will dim a lot or go out and will not have enough power to start the car. if all seems fine then suspect the starter motor.
as one final test push start your car if it starts ok then this will indicate that most likely the starter motor has failed.

after starting your car and your battery is ok, switch off and try to start normally, if the car starts this time it indicated that the starter motor was stuck, this could be an indication that it will need replacement soon.

MY 1995 volvo has power but wont start


volvo 1995 850 glt- same problem- turn key no crank no noise.

Not starter,not solenoid,not battery,not ignition switch

1998 V70 2ltr Non starter


Try the fuel injection relay they are located under the hood. They blow out every few years on my Volvo. The car starts to quit all of the sudden. It is either red or green colored. It is located in the fuse box under the hood.
