    Suspect this might be the case, but I don't have any experience or know-how to diagnose that if it is - all the connectors seem clean and well clamped, and it's intermittent. When the car is at rest, I read the same voltage at the jump point as I do at the battery, so it's intermittent and seems to be linked / only occur when it doesn't start

    You might want to look into downloading VIDA on to a computer. It's the shop manual for volvos. Hopefully it'll have a diagram showing that cable which goes from the batt to the engine compartment to help you troubleshoot. You can also get a DICE setup for a laptop which lets you interface with car thru the OBDII port. That's more complicated. But with VIDA on your computer you can see exploded views of all the car's systems, look up part #s, get repair procedures, etc.

    I use a Virtual Machine setup: https://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...-Download-Link

    I could look up the info in VIDA for you when I get some time but I haven't figured out how to copy and paste into a forum post.

    This is a good clue. I am having trouble with an intermittent no start with crank, or no crank but lights on dash. My first thought was that it is the key antenna since it seemed immobilizer related. It is hard to find facts on the immobilizer though so I am going to do as suggested here to check the solenoid before buying parts.
