I have a 93 850 that I have had many problems with. It stalls and then will turn over but won't start. I have changed the fuel filter and fuel pump and it ran for a while. Then I replaced the Cam position sensor and the and the fuel relay and it ran for a while. Now it is back to turning over but wont start. The error codes say its the Throttle position sensor. Will this being broken keep the car from turning over. I also have an error code that the knock sensor is bad...would this keep it from turning over.....Please help I have changed everything but the kitchen sink...lol

your code says throttle position sensor,yes you change it ,it gives information to your ECU and tells it to adjust the mix of fuel going through the butterfly in your throttle on line they cost in your country about $50 but check your man for Volvo here see FCP Groton,for the part .

Do you have a multimeter? If so, you can check the resistance across the terminals, that way you don't waste money buying new parts when not needed.

What codes came up?
