Volvo S70 No Start

25

Asked by Jun 21, 2007 at 08:54 AM about the 1998 Volvo S70 T5 Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi Folks,

Observations:
Volvo 1998 S70 T5
Turn ignition key, have dash lights.
Clicking under hood
Engine not turning over

Questions:
1. Correct to assume this is likely electrical, likely not a spark issue?
2. Where is the starter motor?
3. Where is the ECU?
4. What are the electrical connections related to
ignition?  My current understanding is:  ignition switch to ECU to ignition coil to distributor?  I don't understand the relationship between the starter motor and the ignition coil.  With my logic they seem redundant (but obviously my logic is wrong).

    Service light was coming on after start, then shutting off after a while. I added oil, and the light still comes on but turns off much sooner. Would low oil cause the service light to come on.
