Hi Debra, The fuse box for the Volvo are on the passenger side end of the instrument panel behind the cover....the passenger door will have to be open to access it and it is just prised off with a small screwdriver, the fuse removal tool should be inside and the fuse list should be on the reverse of the cover but I think it is No 13 fuse you need to replace!
It is fuse #1...it is a 50 amp fuse. There are 2 fuse blocks on 1992-98 Eldorado and Seville, one located in the left-hand side of the engine compartment, on the wheelwell and the other is located on the side of the trunk. The one you are looking for is in the engine compartment. The maxi fuses, for a Cadillac seville. are located Left side of engine compartment, forward of strut mount. Just remove the black cover completly, if you remove the small cap only, you will find mini fuses, but if you remove the whole cover completely you will see the maxi fuses.

special tools needed ,one to go through the bolt hole in front of engine block right hand side ,remove bolt and then screw special bolt/locating pin in ,common rail doesnt need timiing in as its only a pump ,cam is located by aligning sensor with lug on cam .This is not a do it yourself job special tools needed to lock the crank into position after removing starter motor as well also crank pulley is on a taper and the cam .better off taking it to a dealer
no special tools needed use a 1/2 inch or a 9/16 wrench for bolts but rule # 1 before you work on any electrical parts on your truck is to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery then take the starter off you 2 blots holding the starter to the engine take them off they maybe a little tight you my have use a little muscle once you take them out pull out the starter then you have to unscrew the cables use the same procedure to install I hope this information is of use GOOD LUCK
Let's keep things simple to start with... Check the battery that it has sufficient charge. (I did say to keep it simple). Ensure the gear selector is in Park or Neutral if equipped with an automatic trans, or depress the clutch pedal if equipped with a manual trans.
Lastly, in keeping things simple... check all the fuses and fuse links (special fusible wire) that power is available to your vehicle's electrical system.
With a test light, check the starter relay with the key in start position is energising the starter relay... bypass the starter relay if no power is present. if the starter operates, you now know the problem is located within the start control circuit (from the key switch through the starter relay to ground via a neutral safety switch (auto) or clutch switch (Manual).
finding the fault should be quick with a circuit diagram.
