My 2.5 XC90 wonít even try to crank, Iíve replaced the battery and I get all lights and door chimes, etc but when I go to start it it doesnít do anything. Iíve tried another key, replaced the antenna ring (albeit with a used one), cleaned the contact on the wire under the starter, checked all the fuses, swapped the starter relay with the ECM relay (those are the only 2 relays that are the same), checked connections to the CEM and cleaned the battery terminals. Ive tried holding the accelerator pedal to the floor as well as pumping it while I turn the key. Iíve also touched the terminals together for 10 minutes to try to reset the car and Iíve gotten no where. I can hear the starter relay clicking and we tried banging the starter with a mallet but it made no difference. Iíve tried the lock/unlock with the key fob 5 times as well as in the door 5 times (although admittedly I donít think the key hole works properly because every time Iíve unlocked the car in the past itís set off the alarm). I will mention that the alarm siren is unplugged because Iíve been getting the dreaded ďalarm system service messageĒ and I have been waiting for some batteries to arrive to rebuild the unit. Does anyone have any other ideas to try before I pay to get this paperweight towed to a mechanic?
I have a CFE+ installed in my car and Iíve got the display set to show the Battery power. It sits at about 12 volts and when I try to crank the starter it doesnít move that much (although I donít know if it should or not)
