Question about 1987 Volvo 740

1 Answer

Looking for a few things...

My wife and I bought a used 1987 Volvo 740 station wagon. I was first wondering if you knew how I could get a copy of the owner's manual for this vehicle? It didn't have one when I bought it. The previous owner didn't have it either. Second where is the fuse box for this vehicle? I am looking to find out why only one set of my back end lights work. The light bulbs have been replaced but still don't work. They are the top red ones that don't work.

Located where the ash tray is. Just below the ash tray compartment. Remove the ash tray' Then press down on the releae trim just below and a compartment pulls out. This gives access to fuses and relays located here.

For the owners manual, ebay is a good refernece for it and then would check with the dealership.

Not starting after replacing fuel filter and tune-up


I had the same problem with a 1989 Volvo 740 GLE station wagon. I did the same thing you did. But this time I talked to the local Independent Volvo service shop, not the dealer. The problem turn out to a bad fuel pump in the gas tank. You can replace it from inside the back of the station wagon. Just remove the floor panel to access the top of the fuel tank. But before you do; note that there are two fuel pumps, one inline underneath the car on the drivers side, and the one inside the gas tank. Before, you replace any of the fuel pumps check the fuel pump relay behind the astray on the left side. It could also be a bad relay.

1990 volvo 740 wagon shuts off while driving


sounds like you have a computer glitch. i would take it to any auto shop and pay 50 bucks so they can take a look at your e.c.u. (engine control unit) we had a similar problem a few years ago with our 1990 volvo 740 gle 2.3l station wagon. it was a glitch with the computer. got a mixed signal with the mass air flow sensor.

I had a 87 740 turbo wagon, It ran a 10.9 1/4 mile man was it fun. I hate to say that your turbo is nearing the end of its life. The only thing you can do is replace it. there are speciality shops that specilize in turbos. if you can't find one close check out a Diesel truck shop, they deal in turbos too. maybe you can have it rebuilt a little cheaper, or I can tell you how make it pass a Corvette. Good luck.

Looking for socket turn ligth


Those are Bosch sockets which Mercedes and Volvo loved, but which are a royal pain. The socket is a dual-filament socket  probably combining the tail light AND turn signal. The others are all single-filament sockets. They are NOT interchangeable. First determine whether the socket is really at fault. Sometimes the contact points don't quite connect with the long busses in the tail light assembly. I have successfully cleaned mine. Maybe you can reform the contacts to make better contact. If not,  Ebay has what you want under Volvo parts. The sockets for the 240 and 740 are the same, an d will fit either sedans or wagons. Voluparts in Atlanta Georgia has them too. Any junk yard with Volvos will have these sockets.  I bought a bunch of spares for $10
