    Have the same problem I used the key I always use. Car started drove 10 ft then shut down. Had a spare key and it worked fine. Can't figure this out. Still under warranty so I am going to the dealer.

SOURCE: valet key will not start volvo s80. turns in

thats because your regular key probably has an electic connection to the car so go to your volvo dealer and they should be able to clear anything up or replace it with a key that will work

SOURCE: 99 Volvo S80 water pump replacement

if this helps.. I had the 1998 model S70. the water pump was driven by the timing belt. you had to take the timing belt off just to replace the water pump. it was just a simple bolt on replacement. the only difficult issue is resetting the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt. the hydraulic tensioner has to be completely taken off and compressed VERY SLOWLY in a vise. then insert a very hard drill bit or (special volvo tool) into a keeper hole, reinstall hydraulic tensioner onto car and reinstall timing belt.very quickly remove drill bit from keeper hole in tensioner and the tensioner snaps back out to put tension on belt. and you are done.

Try removing the battery for half an hour or so and then reconnecting (check you have all your radio codes etc before you do this).

Testimonial: "Thank you! You are correct when you say it's going to be expensive. I was worried about gaskets leaking. I too believe the vehicle is worth fixing."

I have a 2001 Volvo s80 that ran out of gas. Now, my car will not turn over and it seems like my battery is low. I put 3 gallons of gas in the tank, and when I tried to start it I see message that says...

I would disconnect the battery, then reconnect and have someone jump the car while trying to start. Seems like a safety error that shut your car off so your fuel pump wouldn't burn out.
