Question about 1984 Volvo 240 Series

1984 DL in tank fuel pump.

I have a 1984 Volvo DL wagon that won't start. The problem seems to be the wire supplying power to the in tank fuel pump. The relay works and the pump makes the usual noise when power is jumpered to it. But the blue wire going to the "common" on the relay switch has no power. Does the in tank pump stay on constantly, or does it switch on and off as needed. I'm temted to jumper power from the relay coil 12V to the relay switch to power the pump. Please help. Thank you for your time!

The in-tank pump does run constantly. The outer pump is the one that is switched. I'd suggest that you rewire properly, as using a jumper will cause you more headaches.

Check the fuses, I think power to the tank pump is supplied via a fuse. The pump will have power all the time!

You need to check your engine wiring harness. 84 is part of the crumbling, corroding wiring insulation years. If your harness has not been replaced, you may have to really scrounge around to find one of the "new" versions that has okay insulation on the wiring.

NO Diesel engines dont have spark plugs so dont worry about it as the ones you have should be ok BUT first check the length of the plug thread to the ones you took out, are they the same as they have to be the correct length and not any diffreance also the earth tip on the end
If they look the same 100% your ok to go. RON

Starting a 1984 240 DL Volvo wagon after sitting in a garage for 5 years. Previously looked after really well and regularly serviced one owner.


Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?


I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.

1984 Volvo 240 DL Wagon not Starting and dying


In my 86 volvo this is where a relay was under the glove box area i believe it was the fuel pump relay. In my vehicle i washed the car and found it did not start afterwards after many hours of troubleshooting i found this relay was full of water causing my problem, they hang it upside down so water can enter easily, i took mine apart and cleaned the contacts with sandpaper, worked fine afterwards.
