Hello all<p>I have a 2005 S60 R with 52k. mods are BSR programmer, K&N filter and after market exhaust. I went to start it and engine is making a continous whinning/chirping noise. I opened the hood and the belt/pulleys are not moving. What could it be and how much for my local dealer to fix? Thank you for any help.

Are none of the pulleys turning, or is the drive pulley turning and the belt holding still? Could just be that a tensioner failed and now the belt isn't pulled tight enough to be moved by the pulley.

belt is not broke and is tight. nothing turns. car will start and runs but starts to make noise and gets louder the longer it runs. i only let it run for about a minute.

So you're telling us the engine is running bu the serpentine belt is not moving? If that's true, better check the crank pulley security. Only thing it could be if the belt it taught.

If NOTHING is moving/spinning/turning then the drive pulley has a problem that could have been caused by a failure elsewhere.<p>If nothing BUT the drive pulley is turning then the surpentine belt, the tensioner and/or other driven components may be suspects.<p>Remove the serpentine belt.<p>IF the car will start run it just long enough to determine that the whining/chirping noise is gone.<p>Repair accordingly.<p>George Dill<p>
