I've just gotten a 2000 S40 and the warning light on the right hand bottom of the dash of a car with an X over it has come on a few times. If I shut off the car and start it again, the light will not come on again. What does this light mean? I don't have an owner's manual and I've searched online and the forums but I can't find any answers. Please help. Thanks!

That is the immobilizer light. Generally when it goes off that means an antenna in the steering column that reads the key code is toast. The car should not start if this light is on or flashing. It is a $9.00 part that the volvo dealer charges $200 to install!

I should know. I replaced this earlier this winter.
Good Luck!

Thanks! The key hasn't been working in the driver side door. It'll unlock but not all the way and not lock all of the rest of the doors. These are probably connected, right? Now I wonder if it's actually the key causing the problem!

Doubt it's connected.
Like I said it almost always is the antenna in the steering column.
It would unlock with the fob or key, but when you try to start the car all you get is a car with x icon flashing. No turn over, no nothing.
Pain in the butt!
Eventually it will get worse. Have it looked at now instead of when it won't start.
