Question about 1993 Volvo 850
I tried to jumpstart a bad battery in my Volvo 850, and unfortunately had the polarity wrong. So I guess a blew a fuse or something, so the control lamps do not light up when turning the key on, and even if I have now fully loaded batteries that turn around thje starter motor, nothing happens.
Does anyone knbow what I have to change or what to do ?
It is possible that you have melted a fuseable link. These are heavy guaged wires coming off the positive battery cable. Their purpose is to protect the electric system in the event of such a case.
If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
