Default fuel line prime??

I have a 2000 s80 t6 with 76,000mi.. It wouldnt crank the other day.. My husband replaced the barrery still wont crank.. So he took the fuel filter off and said it needed replaced so he replaced it.. I still wont crank.. No messages are coming in the window.. Is there anything special after you replace the fuel filter to prime the gas line. The line is pressurizing but no gas is coming through.. Please help dealership is 150 mi away..

You shouldn't really need to do anything special, the fuel pump will prime the system, it may take a few tries of turning the car from off to ready, but it does the job. It is possible the fuel pump is going bad.

How much fuel is in the tank?

Some V70's suffer a problem with the pump where having low fuel (I have seen it happen with less than 1/4 tank) and parked on a slight incline the pump just pumps air. If it is low then put a couple of gallons in and cross your fingers?

Another known problem is the key transponder coil fitted around the ignition switch.
