Question about 1987 Volvo 240
On my Volvo 240 dl 1987 wagon, I removed the battery cables and there was a fuse (screwed onto the car itself) with 2 wires attached on the red cable one going to the batterry cable the other wire going to the starter , I pulled the 2 wire condutors out of the fuse, which the parts store said is still good!. The fuse connecter has writing onthat says (Ireland on it) fuse connector part # 89 70i 1 000 and says for one side wire (2 PC) and the other (99 ABS) how do I tell which side the wires go back in? one red wire is on the battery cable, and one red wire is from the car starter. Dang, if only I had the manual...might need to get it, since the car wouldn't start anyway. Had this car for 15 years, and still like to keep it running for fun!

SOURCE: volvo S60 2005 horns not working
Remove the wire connector from each horn and attach a voltmeter or test light. Have a helper push the horn button while you check for voltage. If there's no power getting to the horns you have to work your way back to the relay checking for shorts. If there is power try holding the horns metal mount against a good ground like an engine bolt or the sub frame. And with wire reconnected have your helper try the horn again. If it sounds then clean rust away from mounting bolt and car (rad support or grill bracket), and look for a loose or broken ground strap to the rad support (from either the battery or engine). If both horns still don't work either they're clogged with snow or dirt (bring them inside to defrost or clean out), or they need to be replaced.

I "solved" this by simply plugging the two wires to the two connectors, since the two connectors are only for the mirror heating I have simply assumed that it makes no difference which wire goes to which connector as the connectors aren't marked in any way.
When connecting a heating element it usually doesn't matter how it's connected so I simply decided to take my chances and so far there's no problem.

the thin red wire should go to the blade connector on the alternator.The battery cable which should be red and hot goes to the B+ connector.The other wire should be black is a ground , goes the alternator ground terminal --a D- .
