Q: Volvo won't start; everything inside works (like radio), but car won't start until after several tries; fine for days and then same scenario again

asked by on

Everything works inside the car (like radio etc), but it won't start. It doesn't rev - nothing. After a few tries and waiting about 10 minutes, it will start and it drives for a few days and then goes through the same scenario again. I would appreciate your advice as to what will fix this?
