well to be sure this is what you will have to do. I am thinking fuel pump relay which is common but without more info it is hard to tell.

thanks

to be honest with you, this woman was on the side of the rd and my wife and I stopped to try to help. I feel so bad. She is going to NY and we are in GA. She has a long way to go with two pets in the car. I am pulling all the info I can from her. I thought you guys would be my best bet for a reliable fix.

If you think this is the best direction to take, than that's what I'll do.

Thanks!

Well, I don't know when she will be leaving, I am letting her know what you think it is and the local auto parts stores say 4 days to get it. Looks like if she wants it now, she will have to go to Volvo. Thank you for you help. If it works she will be tremendously grateful to you.

Thanks.
