Hey are you still having this issue? Exact same thing with me - 2007 S80 3.2V6. 2 of out 10 times, the car locks up "immobilizer failure" and won't do *&!. When I use a jumper pack - it starts right up. One dealer said it was a "starter module" pointing to the space where the electronic key goes - but I don't trust them. It is currently at a higher quality dealership and they are trying to troubleshoot.
Let me know, don't know if this helps or not.
#11 of 28 07 S80 Makes noise after starting Cold

">link titleHi everyone, quick questions to anyone who may have some insite to this issue. I have a 07 S80 3.2L V6 Sedan, it has 16,000 miles on it and just a week ago it started making a bizzare noise after starting, for the first 3 mins or so when it's running, it makes a wrrr sound stops for 3 to 5 seconds then does it again. This is only on a cold start so first thing in the morning or after it's sits for about 7 or 8 hours. The car runs fine otherwise but the noise is strange seems to come from the back of the engine on the drivers side somewhere near the AC compressor.
any input would be appriciated, I'm going to take it to the dealer however I dont want to underplay the issue and wait on something that may be more serious then I think. I do have a soundbit of the noise however can't seem to add it to my posting.

I have the same noise with my 2006 S80. I mentioned it to the Volvo Service people and they really didn't think much of it. As it has just started, I am not comfortable with ignoring it, especially since my warranty is nearly up. Any ideas?

In the past year or so, my S80 has had this starting issue. It doesnít matter if itís a hot/cold day rain/dry etc. Iíll get in the car and it doesnít start, everything else works, lights dash, radio etc. everything but the car.
The past 4 times Iíve gotten out, locked the doors and walked away, then I get in around 10-15 minutes later it starts up as if nothing has happened
The dealer had the car for 6 days and because it was starting with him, he couldnít figure out the problem, I was told to bring it in when it doesnít start (no kidding Sherlock)
Am I nuts or has anyone else had this issue?

I've had that problem over 2 years, Volvo had the car for a month and could not figure it out.Probably Immobilizer issue. If you lock and unlock the car 5 times with the remote, it re-sets the immobilizer, see if that helps.

Had this car from by brother and the car previously got issues. The car would just stop when running but this was fixed when he replaced the air filter tube because it was broken off and was losing air compression. then it used to have engine light on but after replacing the battery it's now just had the orange triangle light on. The battery is brand new but still sometimes won't start, especially in the morning but after 10-15 min then it starts again and once the engine warms up then there's no problem starting. My brother mention that the previous battery was fairly new but some how got drain after it was stuck for 5 days? Any suggestions what needed to done without spending alot of money, I'm afraid that dealer would charge me arm and leg if I take it there.
I appreciate any suggestions.

Okay, I finally took the car in the dealer to check the engine light and starting issue but when I got to the dealer the engine light issue had disappear when the service consultant checked it. Then he recommended to do the 90,000 mile service on the car which cost $670. I agreed and also told them to change the sparkplug which my quote total came to $1000. The next day they said that I also need to replace the coil on top the spark plug because they were cracked and possibly causing the starting issue. The coil costed $99 each so now my total cost jumped to $1700 but got 10% discount and dropped to $1550 They haven't charged me about diagnozing the starting issue because it always starts when it was there and the engine service light didn't come on but they next day I took the car home the engine service light came back and would disappear in the morning and come back lit in late afternoon...then the car still would hesitate starting in the morning but lucky enough to still getting it started after couple crank. I was able to google how to reset the service engine light but I'm really concern about the cold starting issue, though the car run a lot smoother now....and I'm hesitant and taking it back to the dealer and get this my timing is due they said and it would cost $980????I'm getting poor.
