Does it smoke and seems like it spins over really fast when you crank it when it acts up like this?

no

So it cranks normally but fails to start when this happens correct?

replace ant ring and fuel pump relay,stays fine many times ,sometimes starts dies,then very hard to get started

Have you checked codes after one of these no start conditions? if so, does it set anything ?

only 720a when it happens,seems that's normal to happen with no start
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
from what I read

Alright, Have you had the ECM out of it before? on the passenger side inner fender well?

Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
no not yet

Alright, I've seen corrosion on the bottom of the ECM pins cause this before. They get green corrosion on the pins and it can cause it, loose pins in the actual antenna ring itself can cause it as well. It's likely a loose connection, but I have had to replace some ECM's before as the corrosion and damage the pins if it's bad enough, then even re-pinning the connector doesn't fix it.

Ask Your Own Volvo Question

since your's isn't a constant issue though, I suspect it's not too bad. but it is something I would check as the ECM connector is out under the hood and somewhat exposed to elements.
