Having problems with your 1996 Volvo 850 ?
When I turn the key, the dash lights come on, but nothing happens. I hear a humming noise, but no engine. This has happened a few times lately, but usually, after I turn the key back and try it again, the motor starts. Also, the alarm system lights are flashing (not normal, as I think the alarm was disconnected a month ago (it kept coming on while I was driving).
The starter are probably gone or ther could be some electrical problems between starter and battery. Check all cables, or if you are some handyman you could try losen the starter itself.
Recheck that alarm issue, it sounds as if its still active in system
