Which one? There is one at the front of the engine by the timing belt, one at either end of the cross member that runs from under the radiator to the base of the fire wall and one at the rear of the transmission. I have had to replace all of them on my 2000 S40

Ignition timing is controlled by the engine management computer and is not adjustable. Valve timing is set at a fixed position when the timing belt is replaced and not adjustable.

There is no "map". Crawl under the car and in the center you will se a bar/cross member that runs front to back. There is a mount towards the front and another at the rear. You will need a flashlight and a prybar. Pry up on each mount and look for cracks/splits in the rubber. You usually need both because when one goes bad the other takes all the torque and splits.

You may have triggered the immobilizer when the battery got hooked back up. Try cycling the key in the driver side door lock a couple of times and try it again.

No pattern of failure with this item. Check fuses first. Then you would need to check for power from the switch and thru to the motor.

The engine control module (ECM) checks the signal from the by-pass valve in the thermostat housing. The diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored if the signal from the by-pass valve is too high. The fault is diagnosed by the engine control module (ECM) when the ignition is on.
Check for short-circuit to supply voltage in the signal cable.
