1998 Volvo C70. I am considering buying this car from a co-worker. The vehicle has 150,000 miles on it and it current will not start. He said there is a problem with the alarm system and the kill switch is preventing the car from starting. Otherwise he startes the vehicle runs fine, not sure if I should get invloved with the vehicle.

    I have a S70 an I too can not get it started. It was running and I turned it off. when I whent back to turn it on it would not come on. I do not recall any problems prior to it shutting off, other than the battery running down and I had to recharge it. The car is showing signs that the battery is still charged, because the alarm system is still working. what could this be? Is it something I did?

Whining noise when trying to turn over the engine of my 2003 C70 convert. It is a continuous whine and no indication it wants to fire up at all...Help!

On some cars, a low battery voltage will only spin the starter, but not enough to engage the engine. Have the battery checked. Try a jump start from a good battery in a running car.

I need a radio code for 1999 volvo c70.

The dealer is the only place to get the radio code for your car. It is always easier to go to the dealer where the vehicle was purchaced. If you have a shop that fixes your car, and they buy parts from a Volvo dealer, they can get the code for you.
