I drove my 2008 Volvo s60 to the store and home one day last

Customer Question

I drove my 2008 Volvo s60 to the store and home one day last week. The next day when I went to drive it, the key fob wouldn't work. I thought maybe the battery was dead in the fob. I got in to start the car and it has absolutely no power. What would cause this?

I didn't find your note about the battery informational at all, kind of a no brainer. I mean really, if you have absolutely no power including in your key fob, you can't even open the trunk to look at the battery. It would seem more realistic to know if one of the 3 fuse boxes specifically controls the power and if there is one fuse in particular that would make everything not work.
This vehicle has 55k original miles so it is prestine.

Do you have a volt meter to check the fuses. Do any of the high amp fuses have battery voltage 12.6 volts?
