SOURCE: Car won't start

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: volvo s40 1998 bulb warning light on, what does

If by that you mean:

"warning light goes on when I start the motor, and goes off after first time I use the brake pedal"

, don't worry, it's normal, it's how it work. If it stays on even after the use of brakes, you have a bad bulb on brake tail lamps

SOURCE: who can answer this

From what I have seen, it looks to be a blown bulb indicator. Check all of your lights to make sure that they are in proper working order including turn signals, park lights, headlights, and tail lights.

Volvo warning ligts meaning, a car with a cross?


This 'orange crossed car' light in your panel is the Immobilizer light. It normally turns on because the car is not recognizing your key, what means the chip inside of it either demagnetized or you are using a different key (in which case the car would not start). If you can start your car but the light is still on it means you have faulty wiring or system. I would check under the bonnet by myself, but I highly recommend that you take it to a Volvo Authorized dealer to find out what has been causing the light to turn on. Hope I was of use, Andre Borges.
