If the dash lights go on when you turn the key to the on position then turn it to the start position the dash lights should go off. If this does not happen, your ignition switch may be bad.

When starting in the morning, you have to turn the key and let it sit for about 10 or 15 seconds before you start it or else it will start and then soon die. What would be causing this? 1990 Volvo 240 DL


This sounds like a problem with the fuel pump. Check your fuel pump relay then listen for a whirring noise when you turn the ignition to the on position; without starting it. You have two fuel pumps; the main and the pre-pump. The pre-pump, which is in the gas tank itself, can be checked by taking the gas cap off the gas tank (with the ignition key on) and listening for a faint whirring noise. If the "whirring" noise is delayed you need to troubleshoot these pumps and see which one is failing.

89 volvo 240 dl when i put the car into gear i hear a clinking


need more info. I've had a few 240's come in that made noise when putting into gear. It was more of a KLUNK, then a constant rattle/buzz type of noise.
I turned out to be a combination of two noises, that were related. The motor mounts were shot and the exhaust heat shield above the rear muffler, was loose.
It seems that the broken mounts allowed excess exhaust pipe/muffler movement, which in turn came in contact with the loose heat shield. This was the KLUNK and the RATTLE.

89 volvo 240 dl wagon stalls and will not even turnover


If you can get it running again, get it to an electrical shop where they can test the charging system. If the alternator is still bad, it will continue draining the battery. If it won't run, pull the alternator and take it to a shop that can test it.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites


Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.
