Question about 2001 Volvo V70
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.
