Hi I have a 1998 Volvo S90 that had a Check Engine Light-Had it checked it was Code P0017 ECT Sensor, but then my Battery went Dead, then I Recharged the Battery, but it still Wont Start-I hear Clicks, when I turn the key,  and the Lights turn on, but No Start Now-Could it still be the ECT or now the Starter or Alternator ????? Please help I need to understand.

If you just hear clicks than your starter is not getting enough voltage to turn the engine over so i would make sure you have at least 12 volts on the battery or have your battery checked at a local auto store.
