I have a 2006 XC90 2.5T with about 70k miles on it, almost 2 years ago it just would not start, wont even crank when turning the key...displays a message that says "Start prevented, try again" Here are the steps that I have already taken:
1) replaced antenna ring with OEM 2) have checked all fuses and relays 3) have replaced the battery 4) scanned with OBDII scanner and cleared any codes
when the OBDII was ran, it said low voltage to ignition so thats when I replaced the battery all together cause I figured it had been sitting for a while with only being started a few times. I try to start it often, a few times it has but once I shut it off its bye bye for a while. Another fact to mention, the vehicle only came with the valet key and I do not want to pay $500.00 for a new key from Volvo. I just want my car to be working again but cant afford big repair bills to get it up and running again. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
