    Post Anti-Skid and Immobilizer Warning...

    I read a thread from 2006 here when I googled, Volvo immobilizer problem...

    Bottom line is, I love my 2007 XC90...today I was unsure about what to do when it wouldn't start. (Out of nowhere) So, my dad being a mechanic (Loves his Chevy...) gets a little weird about my foreign vehicle... checked the battery, connectors, tried jump starting and "hitting the starter" ...nothing.

    I tried:
    freaking out a bit, calling VOLVO service tech and the mechanic where I bought it to NO avail!!
    Also:
    1. pushing the panic button
    2. pushing LOCK once, UNLOCK five times
    But a guest member had me jumping for joy, thanking God for the answer that actually worked!!

    Insert the valet (manual) key in drivers side
    LOCK
    LOCK
    UNLOCK

    Praise God, no huge bills, calling the wrecker or anything!!

    It took two tries to start- started right back up
    Thanks,

    Hope this helps someone else!!

    The Volvo is amongst the leading brands in automotive.

    The security systems they developed is really fine.

    The immobilization helps a lot in case of stealing or toeing!

    There might be some issue with electonic parts; might be the pcb have some problem.

    The electronic boards are not functioning properly sometimes due to the moisture on circuit or failure of some parts on the board.
