04' XC90 not starting issues

Post by keithhitch »


I have a 2004 XC90 that I have had for about 2 years. Did lots of minor fixes and was able to get rid of all of the trouble codes. It has been fine for over a year. Recently my sons started driving it. It stopped running on them about a block from the house and will not start now. I checked and got a ECM-5200 code. SInce this code I have done the following: Replaced Crank position sensor, replace camshaft position sensor, cleaned MAF, charged battery (less than 2 yrs old) because it had run low after multiple tries, found that the fuel pump was not producing much pressure, replaced fuel pump, replaced spark plugs.

Still not starting - if anyone can point me in a good direction I would be very happy to have the help.

I have been owning Volvo's for the last 8 - 10 years. I love them and they run great. This forum has saved me tons of money because I don't have to go to dealers.

Thank you all,

Give it a three second shot of starting fluid to determine if it is a fuel delivery problem or not. If it fires on starting fluid, it is a fuel delivery problem. If it does not fire on starting fluid, look elsewhere.
