Hi and welcome to Just Answer! My name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will be the expert to assist you today. I’m sorry you’re having trouble with your vehicle; I know how frustrating it can be. Please understand I do not know your level of automotive expertise so I may need to ask questions to find out information in order to provide the best possible service and solution. There are times when it may take me a moment to respond because I may have to look up information about your concern. I appreciate your patience. You mention it will not start with a Jump, are there any Warning lights illuminated on the dash? Do you know what [Engine](/topics-engine-volvo/) your daughter has in the car?

I am canceling this conversation, my daughter has someone coming tomorrow to assist her....I think the problem is the security system ....
