Try jumping the vehicle but by pass the battery. Disconnect the Positive Terminal and when you connect the jumper cables connect the Negative cable to the Engine and the Positive to your Positive cable instead of the battery. If the vehicle turns over you know the battery is your problem. If it doesn't at least crank your either your motor is frozen, the starter is bad or you have a short on the positive cable.

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.

2006 volvo s40 50,000 mi. noticed a noise under hood that sounded like a belt slipping. sounded more like it was coming from the back of the motor. With the car running,I took the oil dip stick out and the...


The oil filter housing also houses the pcv system. What causes the noise is that there is a check valve in the pcv system that is supposed to regulate the pressure in the crankcase. The valve gets stuck and causes vacuum to build in the crankcase, which in turn sucks air wherever it can causing the noise, which is also why when you pull the dipstick it stops. This can also cause a check engine light with codes for fuel trim. The oil filter housing will need to be replaced. Good news is that Volvo extended the warranty on these to 100K miles so it should be free of charge at the dealer. One thing to watch for is oil leaks after the replacement from the camshaft seals. If air can get past a seal, usually oil can too. If the seals leak too long it can contaminate the timing belt and cause it to break, which causes a lot of damage.

2004 Volvo S40 Noise and check engine light. Any ideas?


If the noise is a whistling or screeching type noise it means the breather assembly (integrated in the oil filter housing) has gone bad, its part of the PCV system. Good news is they are on an extended warranty now, I believe 10 years, 100K miles. Take it to the dealer for a free fix :)
