Question about 1991 Volvo 240
I have a 1991 Volvo 240 and I am trying to install the original radio back in. Two aftermarket radios were previously installed and both stolen. The latest thieves ripped the radio from the dash pulling apart a lot of wires. I am able to get power to the radio, but the speakers are stumping me. I'm assuming the factory amp was bypassed when the aftermarket radios were installed. How do I get the OE radio to work again?
Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.
