1990 740Turbo Starting Issue

Anyone have any suggestions on why after replacing my starter my car still will not start. Battery has been checked and have tried jump
starting it and still nothing. I just recently spent $1500 at a Volvo repair shop and am not looking forward to returning to give them any more money. It has been suggested to me that it could be the starter relay or something in the gear shifter telling the car that its in gear keeping it from starting. Any quick easy suggestions on how to pin point without taking it back to the dealer/repair shop?

Does it try to turn over, or do anything?? I posted a similar problem on my '01 V40...several posts prior to yours. I am going to try the two suggestions that I got.... 1. Reseat/Replace fuses (probably starter fuse) 2. Try starting in neutral to see if it is the gear shifter switch. They may apply to you as well.

The shift interlock switch is a fairly common problem, try wiggling the shifter while attempting to start it, or try in neutral.
How did you manage to spend $1500? I hope they did other work besides the starter!
