Re: 940 Immobiliser fitted?
Thanks for the info, the car was sold 'as is' ie clearly stated without
alarm so I can't complain too much about that. Volvo will sort it out for
around £80, although we will track down the previous owner hopefully.
However there are more serious problem now with oil loss then oil light
comming on after a head-degunk and oil change. I think the sale of goods
act should cover it, and they should be protected for this problem even when
selling under as is, since it wasn't sold for further repair or parts. See
