I have a 2010 volvo that will start after a battery change. The key fob also gets stuck as well. I have read all kinds of blogs to include touching the battery cables together for 30 seconds and I get nothing. Also, sometimes while trying to start with nothing on I can hear like a fan or something running though the car is not on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Your post might need some edits... The Volvo will start, or will NOT start? After a battery change or did you mean battery charge? What do you mean by a fob getting stuck? Also, fans often run when cars are off. Probably safe to ignore that for now.

  • Replace the battery in the fob. It sounds like the rolling security code isn't being received due to a weak transmitter. Disconnecting the battery acts as a failsafe.
