My 2002 volvo s80 has to be jumped started every time i turn off keeps running after jumped


Check charging voltage when running. It should be around 14 volts at the battery terminals. If not, even when revving, then change the alternator.

Then check the battery voltage at rest, a few hours after resting that is. The voltage shouldn't be lower than around 12.5.
You can double check battery condition by turning on the vehicle lights and cranking. If the lights dim significantly, then you have a dead battery and you will need to replace it.

Trying to figure out what is wrong with my my 2000 volvo s40 its wont start when i turn the key it just clicks is it the battery or could it be the starter


A weak battery will make the "clicking" sound you hear, also bad connections, loose battery cables or worn battery cables. Jump start the car to see if it cranks, if it does, charge or replace battery.

Volvo s40 power steering pressure line change job cost


The cost can cary depending on the labor rate at the shop you take it to. I can tell you this though, the book time in the labor guide for changing the line says it is 1.1 hours of labor and list cost for the hose is $155.70. Of course there will be a shop supply charge (depends on which shop and thier going rate) as well as the cost for the power steering fluid. I hope I was able to help

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.

Batter won't stay up after jumping it off


Take the battery to an auto parts store and have them test it, most do this for free. If you can, take the alternator with you. If your able to keep the car running after the jump, try to drive it to the auotparts store for the testing.
