Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

What year is the car?

Is it fitted with an immobiliser? Usually if it is any of the three things you suggest you don't need to lock and unlock the doors to get it started. I am not ruling them out but it seems odd that you need to go through that rigmarole.

Your vehicle is fitted with an On-Board Diagnostic unit which will store any fault codes thrown up. This makes diagnosis of engine problems much easier. It is located on the left side of the engine compartment on the strut tower.

I hope this helps.

You are welcome.

Shall we say it is a '96?
