dunno if it affects anything but i also got a new key blade to replace a snapped one and the battery was out of the fob for a little while not longer than 5-10mins i wouldve thought max.  ive not seen the anti skid note come up on the info box and wondering if its anything to do with driving home and driving on the rim for a while. it says anti skid disengaged or something like that, also reduced power mode, engine service due and also srs airbags due for check but ive seen those before.

 

basically immpuzzled why the damn thing wont start it just clicks, not even trying to turn, doesnt jump start and doesnt bump off either. obv its the immobilizer but how do i sort it pls?!

 

thanks for any help in advance

I take it you have googled that code?

crank angle sensor will stop it starting but it wont stop it turning over just going click suggests dead battery (which you have alreaddy ruled out by trying to jump it) or immobiliser which i wouldnt even know where to start trying to fix

I'd fit a fully charged, known to be working battery to the car. Do you have another key that works? (Did the new key work prior to your issues?) Was it an aftermarket key or one that you have to take out a second mortgage to buy at a volvo dealership?

Check the terminals on the starter motor and replace if they look dodgy - quite a common issue on P2s which leads to symptoms similar to those you're describing.

If you remove the intercooler to ETM pipe you can easily get at the starter terminals. Also check the earth lead on the front of the gearbox. 

 

The ABS related problems can be down to you driving with a fucking flat tire as the rolling radius would be less.
