    Can you describe the symptoms a bit more? What is the original problem, and did the problem change after replacing the starter?

    Actually, the ABS module can cause this and many other problems on this car. It's not common, but sometimes the whole CAN bus can be disrupted by the ABS Module. I have a feeling this is an Immobilizer problem though. We may never know....

    I stand corrected Bret. I really don't work on Volvos. I never thought the sweds could make a real car.
