Have Volvo Questions? Ask a Volvo Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Chad ,Welcome To JustAnswer, I'm reviewing your question and I will be be posting a replay ASAP
is there red security light flashing or steady on ,when you press the push button ?
lets start with a simple master reset , the procedure is below ,do that & let me know .
Master reset Procedure
1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )
2- Hold cables Together for 20 secs ,then let go
3- Wait 10 minutes
4- Make sure all doors are closed
5- Reconnect battery Cables
6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start
the steering wheel has a motor to lock it , so either you need a motor or sensor but we cant find out , without hooking it up to a Volvo scanner or equivalent
i m afraid it cant be done without those faults retrieved , if you have access to a Volvo scanner get met the codes and we can go from there or it need to be towed unfortunately.
the procedure earlier was done in case it was a glitch and we can reset the system but obviously we have a bigger failure.
i m sorry for the bad news but i afraid that is the issue here .
Please let me know
