Ok so I have a 2006 xc90 , v8 awd and thought I had a bad starter or solenoid problem so I have a new battery and solenoid and starter are good and when I bypass the relay, attempts to crank but doesn't actually start ,'with key on ,..also it does only click once during attempts to crank with key ,idk where to go from here ,maybe the throttle control sensor? It has given me problems already

If starter is ok,then check the grounds and b+ cable from battery to starter.
Battery terminals must be clean and tight.

If that is ok..then starter or solenoid is bad.
That click you have is pointing to one of them.

You're on the wrong forum section.

No problem. Locking this so there's no confusion. The topic is now here.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
