Default Problem with my S80 starting

Hey guys,

This is my first time to post in this form, but I have lurked for a while and received some very good information. Hopefully you guys can help me out with my newest problem.

I have a 2001 S80 with about 130,000 miles on it.

I live in Austin, Texas so it rarely gets below freezing here. Last night it was in the low 20s and snowed about 1-2 inches.

My car was completely covered in snow and when I started the car it ran for about 30-45 seconds then "sputtered" out.

I tried to start it a few more times. It made similar sputtering noises but never fully started.

Anyone know what could be causing this? I haven't checked the anti-freeze level yet because I was in a hurry to make it to work, but there were no warning lights on.

I would try to add some gas additive because of the freezing temps. You may have had water within your gas lines that froze. Your antifreeze has nothing to do with your issues.

Default 2000 Volvo S80 T6 Starting Problems

I have 2000 Volvo s80 T6 ...
It is not getting started.. It seemed to me like my battery has drained out..So put a jump starter box and tried to start it ...But even with jump starter it makes just clicking noise and does not start..!

AC, other lights everything works when I try to start but the engine doesn't start up.

Before I faced this problem I had turn signal not working so I removed fuse 21, 22, 25 and 35 and then kept them back... Then I started facing this starting problem... and turn started working !!!

The battery seems fine ... and I am trying to start with jumper box ... What could be the issue... please help me with this..
