So i went to start my 02 AWD today and twice nothing. Start prevented try again in the window. I removed the key, cycled it and third try it started. Also for a few minutes there was message: Reduced Engine Performance. Later on all messages clear, no cel. All seems well but what could be the cause of this. It was 100 degrees out though if that has anything to do with it. Everything seemed fine the rest of the day but what should i expect, somebody drop knowledge on me haha... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Start Prevented, Try Again message 2002 S60 AWD (JonathanL)

I had this happen with my S60 and the only thing i found was my gas cap was not screwed on right. But there are other reasons behind that message just not sure in your situation, just keep an eye on it

The only time i've gotten the start prevented message is after clearing all codes with the ppc. The start prevented code goes away after my 3rd start attempt.
