I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

Well chris the book says if there is no pressure then it will not start so am i suppose to jumper the pump to creat pressure. Or replace pressure. Sensor
Volvo Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

I would try to get the pump to run first off and see what happens by supplying the pump with its needed power and ground.
