Look for a bad or missing connection from the battery to the starter (THICK wire).

I'm not certain, but I think the starter draws a LOT more juice from the battery than the lights do. When I flip on my headlights, the volt gauge barely moves. When I crank the engine over, it drops down below 12.

I just bought that battery 3 months ago..

It worked after 4 hours. hmm it does that sometimes if I haven't driven it in awhile, I wonder why? It does it too sometimes when I drive a short distance and turn it off, then it won't start till I wait a while. Cars are complicated.

I just got off the phone with a volvo dealership: they said $59 bucks for the pnp switch and $88.40 for the mode switch (not installed). Does it really cost $245 (not including part) to install a pnp switch?
