JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Volvo. The Volvo Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Right
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: changed the switch for the key fob
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Volvo Mechanic should know about your Volvo?
Customer: It did this three months ago, then it stopped now it back again. Took it to Volvo in Rochester, they said it was a loose battery cable
JA: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Volvo Mechanic will know what to do. OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $13 after the Volvo Mechanic responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Volvo Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
