there is a power button on the dvd unit itself.but also should work if u insert a dvd.
ive seen this and most of the time it ends up being the dvd unit. this setup has a audio module and a dvd module but both can cause it not to turn on.

According to the manual, after 5 hours the immobilizer will auto reset

Make sure your alarm isn't armed. In many car door latches, there is a metal piece the 'closes' around the pin. If 'piece' can be flipped to the closed position with the door open, and then when you slam the door, it does not latch.

Check ICMs for the radio, as failure is common. Also do a hard reset fist, and disconnect battery power for at least 15-20 minutes.

That's the common linkage problem in the shift mechanism. If you get the cover off of the shifter, the yellow plastic part inside tends to break in two, which makes the shifter go back into manual.

This sounds very much like the ICM is the culprit. This helped me once with the same problem: Disconnect battery and wait for a few minutes, then take the ICM out and the ICM-board out of the little cage and check for signs of moisture. If you find something, first clean the board carefully with circuit board cleaner. Then take a heat gun and treat the board with a lot of heat for a couple of minutes but be careful not to melt it Put everything back together, reconnect battery. If you're lucky the ICM starts working again.

Anyway for sure you should check the error codes with vida to see which modules also might be involved in the ICM shout down, could be the antenna/(radio) module too for example.
It's sometimes very strange what can help bringing faulty ICMs back to life. There is one magic trick I discovered that helped me last time and since then my radio never stopped working again: With the engine running pull the antenna fuse. Disconnect battery for 20 minutes. Put antenna fuse back, reconnect battery. Start engine and maybe your ICM is back to life.

You either have a bad turn stock high beam low beam selector , or headlight switch, or both.

Check for fuel pressure. There is usually a schrader valve under a cap on the fuel rail that you can depress to check quickly if you have fuel pressure -- it should come out under a lot of pressure. If not, then I would suspect a fuel pump failure, or fuel pump relay.

A diagnotic test will not detect a bad water pump , which tend to fail on the XC90. You need to have your cooling system inspected and tested by a shop / or radiator shop

check that the intake vent grill underneath the hood, adjacent to the wiper mechanism is not blocked by debris,and that the plastic drain tube from the vent is also clear.

I would check for voltage at the blower motor, when fan speed is at max with heater on. If no voltage is present, I would suspect the MCC (manual climate control) module.

Generally when the power module becomes defective, the motor runs full speed. They are normally changed in pair because a bad motor drawing too much current can ruined the power module.

I suspect you have a bad blower motor, but it could also be your blower motor resistor. Having them tested is your only solution to find the problem.

The noise is from crankcase being under vacuum and the air being sucked through cam seals, front crank seal, sometimes rear cam seals. Any one of those seals that is easier to get air to pass through will be the one that makes the Kazoo noise.

IF you pull oil cap or pull out dipstick so that one of those is the vent for air instead of seals then the noise quits.

This is a well known issue as the result of the crankcase pressure regulator part of crankcase vent system developing a ruptured diaphragm. IT is part of the vapor/oil separator box under the intake manifold.

You purchase a crankcase ventbox and associated hoses, remove intake manifold and replace those pieces.

Disconnect the battery for 15-20 minutes, then reconnect everything for a "hard reset". Next, I would suspect the instrument cluster may have gone bad if this does not make everything power up again. Also test battery voltage should be within the magic 12-13.5v range.

The first thing I would check is the engine control relay it sounds like it has gone out.

Here is a guide and some wiring diagrams so you can test and confirm the failure. Also check the injector harness for chaffed or grounded wires.


here is the test for the injectors.
