    I just changed the battery in the 1997 960 volvo and the car will not
    start. The lights come on inside the car. I found the code for the
    radio to work however when I turn the key to the start position the car
    will not turn over; however the alarm starts to honk the horn. Is there
    a code or switch I need to know?

    I think the imobilizer comes on by default , you have to turn the alarm
    on and off to reset it, or if it has a service key, (my 440 is in the
    back of the glove box) then you can turn off the alarm etc and turn it
    on when all is settled

    That's happened to me once (with an 850). Here's what I did. Got
    out of the car and locked it using the key (not the remote). Unlocked
    the car using the key, and started it up. Worked fine from that
    point on.
