It my be you you have an old battery. you need to check the battery and the alternator. Take the battery to a Napa or Orileys and they can check it for free. If the battery is good, your charding system may not be charging.
It could also be your starter is worn and requires extra power to turn the engine over. Start with the battery check

How do I fix all warning lights on, on a 1999 Volvo s70 at the same time.


try disconnecting the battery ,leave for ten minutes for the electronic gizmos to power down ,i should say make sure you have the radio code , reconnect battery and try ignition if no change will need to be scanned on the Volvo diagnostic setup as i would'nt expect a generic OBD reader to be able to resolve this issue

I have a 2000 S70 Volvo. There are many times it will not start. The engine turns over but sometimes it will not start. I remove the key reinsert it and it will start. This does not always work the first, second or third time but it does eventually start. I have never not had it start. There are times that when trying to start it it revs up high and dies (for about a second). Any ideas?

Having problem starting my car without a jump, started recently.


  • Well, if it starts with a jump and runs all day with no problem then that would indicate that the alternator is doing it's job of charging at least. Does the car function normally all day after a jump start? The problem could very well be the battery needs replaced or something is draining the battery overnight and the battery is fine.

  • I would pull the battery and have it tested at your local major parts store. Or better yet if drive-able, drive it the vehicle to the parts store so they can load test it.

  • If it is good then you want to look for a wiring issue. If it tests bad then replace the battery.


  • Hope this helps.

98 S70 RPM's jump up then stall when car is stopped


does this model have an ETS on it? Electronic throttle system. I could need a new throttle body. Sometimes the software goes bad and it will give the symptoms you described.

Volvo S70 won't start - battery, generator, or other


usually multiple clicking (like a machine gun) does indicate lw battery voltage. did you get 11.9 volts with it running or car off? with running you should be over 13.6 min up to 14.0 volts. these cars have a fair amount of electronics with some residual voltage draws which may shorten battery life. 4 yrs is not too bad. i would consider replacing battery
