Q: Do I have a blown fuse that would cause the engine not the crank?

asked by on

I just drove my car for the past 12 hours, replaced the fuel filter. Pulled the fuel pump fuse and turned the engine over a couple times to releive fuel pressure. After I put the new fuel filter on, the engine will not crank. All dash lights come on, but there is no crank, or click, or anything at all. Do I have a blown fuse somewhere that would be causing the engine not to crank?

Hi there. If you removed a fuse and tried to crank the engine over without it, it’s possible that it may have damaged an electrical relay to the starter or perhaps blown a fuse to the starter relay. It’s also possible that a direct current was sent to the starter relay and damaged that component during the starting attempt. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection at your location to determine what is causing your Volvo to not crank over.

Q: Car will not crank.

Inasmuch as your engine is an "interference engine" (i.e., no clearance for pistons and valves if the timing belt were to break), the first possibility that should be considered (before attempting to start the engine) is a break in the...

Q: time belt

Unfortunately it is impossible to even guess how far or long you can drive the vehicle for. If it is the timing belt itself making noise, then odds are it is because it has stretched and/or frayed considerably. If that's...
