Volvo v70 Push button

Post by Wendel » Tue Aug 15, 2017 11:48 am

Hey, installing a lush start and toggle switch I my 99 V70 for fun. I had it going for a bit but I think must've ripped a wire because now it just turns over. Seems like there's no spark. Anyone know which wires are the ones coming from the spark to the ignition?

The 99 model needs the key in close proximity (5cm?) to the key switch or....

There will be no ignition

I thought the security system cuts fuel with no key...

I'm not sure but I believe the ECU will stop both fuel injectors and coils

The car will fire for a second, then stop. After this first run, it will no longer fire
