We have a 2000 V40 with 198k miles that has been a great car since new but now when starting it will randomly not activate starter. Turn key to start and lights come on but no ignition, turn it back off and try again, sometimes it’ll start sometimes it won’t then it’ll be fine for a day or two then happen again. Any suggestions? Thanks, Rob

sounds like an ignition switch problem if it has the old fashion key type or could be a starter solenoid , either of these two will cause this problem

Sorry just read your year model and kms yep definitely the ignition switch located behind key lock body just see if you can get a low mileage replacement And find a mechanic willing to fit it for you and you’ll be good for another 150 k
