3 RAC men couldn't start it, but with the help of a battery guy and various\nVolvo forums isolated it to the fuel pump relay. Apparently they usually\nlast about 7 years but this one had done better than that because my part\nnumber was superseded 10 years ago. They are used in later models but don't\nknow how much later.\nI only bought the (24 years old) car recently but already prepared to donate\na kidney to save it, wouldn't start all over Christmas & no parts places\nopen. What an introduction to Volvos. But hey, that's a problemette compared\nto 50-odd thousand dead and their families caught in the Tsunami.
