Adjusting sterring wheel in a 1989 volvo 740

I'm trying to figure out if I'm able to adjust my sterring wheel in my volvo, but can seem to. Is there a way I would be able to tell or it is not an feture on the car?

Thanks, Mary

There will be a paddle shaped lever that you pull down on the bottom of the steering column, reach under and forward, you will see it if your car has tilt.

Driver side seat will not adjust and the steering wheel adjust will not work.

If adjustment is electric check fuses in fuse box, if it is mechanic you need to take apart steering and seat, in this case is better to go to a garage.

Sterring box rebuild

this will be a case of seal replacement and bearing end float adjustment. I suggest an accredited steering specialist and limit the repairs to those items unless they can show proof of further damage needing replacement

I have a 02 v6 . the check engine light will come on and then car will cut off. before it does so it usually jerks like its trying to go forward. other times its just completely locked up. ( cant turn...

You know those dash check lights have been on all
vehicles for 32 years,so not to know what to do
seems odd

A battery light has been on for months
That says you don't care & is on the verge
of abuse

To have any type of mechanic in the family
& you not having the car checked for codes
& properly diagnosed,leaves me at a loss

Yes, on the steering handle there is the wire which is maybe not connected to the terminal. when you press the horn wire is not sending a signal via relay or directly to the horn.
