Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo D3-110 won't start - instruments won't even light up?



Unfortunately, you will need a Volvo certified mechanic with the latest Volvo software on his laptop.

Hopefully it is not a dead Volvo computer, or two.

After a nice short day sail today, we were approaching Katakolo, Greece and I started the Volvo D3-110 (rev c) on my A54 and after a few minutes at idle, engaged into forward gear and about 30 seconds later, the motor died.

I tried to start it again but neither the EVC System Tachometer nor the Alarm Display lit up. So effectively the motor is not responding at all to the ignition key. Both of the 20 amp fuses on the motor are intact.

The starting battery is showing 12.9v and the genset, which I believe uses the same battery, started fine. 

Any ideas how I can start diagnosing this?
