When you disconnect the battery, short the posative and negative cables together for 5 minutes. Then reconnect the battery and try to start it. If this doesn't work, the car will have to be scanned with Vida at a Volvo dealer or an independant shop that has Vida.

My 2001 Volvo S60 will not unlock with the key. I put the key into the driver's side door lock and the car lights started flashing.The odd thing is the key works to unlock the trunk.

one of two things are going on.
1. The door lock cylinder is worn out needs replacing.
2. It's not recognising the key fob. Try this..
you can use your key to open the trunk ,thankfully! , try and unplug the battery, and then connect the two wires that go to the battery together for about a minute, and then reconnect them both to the battery. It's call a hard restart, and it might fix your problem.
won't mess anything up by doing this.
Hope this helps a little.

First thing, disconnect the negative terminal from the battery post and wait 20 minutes, relax and then reconnect the battery to reset everything.

Climate control not working on 2001 volvo

I was having the same problem with a dead climate control module after disconnecting the battery on my 2002 v70. i tried (one method that sometimes works for people) disconnecting the battery again, shorting the leads for 10 seconds, and reconnecting with the key at position 2, to no avail. I managed to get my climate control back again when I jump started the car after the battery conveniently crapped out. then i got a new battery and when i installed it the ccm died. i jumped it again, with the new battery still hooked up, and the ccm came back. it's something try.
