Wires to license plate light are damage in my 2002 volvo s40

I was told it would be 1000 to repair the damage wires for my license plate light. That seems too costly for this car... is there a better solution?

    Thanks for your input. The socket is ok, it's the assembly where the wires are housed that go to the lights.

I have a volvo s40, 2001. The fuel gauge is not working properly, was told it was a bad sending unit, had the fuel pump replaced (it's not possible to just replace the sender) and a software upgrade by the...

This sounds more like a damaged wire shorting out against the frame than a sending unit. My old Volkswagen did the same thing, and with it, the wire from the tank had become corroded with road salt. This may very well be your problem as well, and if so, a simple wire replacement can solve your problem!

Cannot adjust front passenger seat on 2002 Volvo S40

Hello Jim...If the seat controllers for the S40 are like the C70 you can try this...There is a micro switch on the hinge part of the seat
where the seat back and bottom meet. Just inside the hinge point. There is a spring attached to a metal plate.The spring comes off because one of the tabs holding it breaks. A lot of times you can reach under there and roll the metal plate and get the seat to move back.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Replacing rear numberplate lights

The lights should be accessible by reaching up above the license plate and finding the housing they sit in. For the guy with the shift indicator lights out, you will need to pull the center console and remove the bulb from the holder and pop the new one in.
