Hello and welcome!

My name is***** am a Volvo factory trained technician. I will be happy to assist you with your vehicle. I am sorry your 850 is not starting, electric problems can be very difficult to diagnose.

I will need some more information to give you the best possible help that i can.

Do all of the dash lights turn on, windows, headlights, all work normally.

Does the engine turn over, or turn the key and no crank?
