I have a Volvo C70 and yesterday morning it would not start. The dashboard lights up but the engine won't turn over. The message reads Turn steering and try again. I have a new battery fitted as the last one was several years old, but the problem remains unsolved.

Have a 2007 2lt diesel galaxy. I went out the day before
Hi have a 2007 2lt diesel galaxy. I went out the day before yesterday, got about 5 miles and lost the electrics. First the battery warning light came up on the dashboard and I lost the poser steering, then I lost everything. I managed to get home with the engine running badly. When I was home I turned off the ignition. When I tried to restart the car it was totally dead. I didn't have time to check anything as I had an appointment. When I treid to start the car again yesterday the dashboard lights came on, but when I turned the ignition I just got that horrible clicking noise to show that the battery is flat. I had a tow bar fitted two days before I had the problem. Do you think that this could have anything to do with it? … read more
