Question about 1994 Volvo 850
That connects to main relay
Hi Dolphe, I'm guessing that you need to identify which of the five connections is the ground. Take out the relay and on it you should see a circuit diagram. The coil operation which operates the electro magnetic field pulling the switch, will be shown as a series of loops. It will be a normally open normally closed relay, meaning that when there is no power one of the connections will be connected and one open. When power is fed to the circuit the output switches from the one leg to the other. The ground you want is for the coil side of the relay, not the switched part. I wish I had a replacement scanner so I could draw it and let you see, but I hope you'll be able to trace through with the info I've given. Regards John

This relay is located behind the dashboard's lower cover. It consists of two individual relays. One is energized whenever the ignition is ON , thus supplying battery voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This relay also supplies voltage to the fuel injectors, and power to the second relay. The second relay is energized for two seconds, when the engine is turned ON , to power the fuel pump.
