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: The AC fan in my car (volvo s40-99) does not work

If you are talking about the blower motor fan,inside the car,look for a blown fuse,or a bad fan relay.The blower motor relay could be mounted near the blower motor,or in the relay box,look for the lables to guide you to it.If the relay,and the fan are fine,then replace the blower motor.

Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

How do you reset the immobilizer for a 2007 volvo s40?


Your ignition needs replaced. They weren't the best on Volvos; especially if there is a lot of weight on your keychain.

Why does the dstc light stays on the dashboard?


The DSTC system by Volvo means Dynamic Stability & Traction Control, and is the equivalent of the ESP system (means the Electronic Stability Program). If the DSTC lights on the dashboard permanently the DSTC system is faulty. You must access the DSTC Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by DSTC ECU, in other words reset the DSTC system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
