IPDusa.com.  If its similar to a 240 (and it most likely is) you can purchase a block off plate for the solenoid so you won't lose 4th gear (actually its OD from torque converter lockup).

SOURCE: 94 940 volvo pops out of od without touching the button

Hi, the OD relay behind the fuse panel may be loose or have failing solder joints. The OD relay is the white relay about 1 1/2" tall on the right side of the block. Try removing it and cleaning the contact and plugging it back in. That is all it took to fix my OD problem. Otherwise a solder joint is probably failing and the relay joints inside can be reheated or a new relay installed.

Not shifting into overdrive


1. Check the relay.
2. Check the solenoid and wire harness connecting each other. Usually wires become brittle and broke off.

Where is overdrive relay on 1992 940


You can find it behind the fuse box. To access the relays. Remove the plastic cover on the cigarette lighter socket, remove the screw, and remove the ash tray to gain access to the fuses and panel whit the lighter socket. The relay is marked number 123 or 136, found all the way to the right second row.

I have a 92GL, somestimes it will not shift into high gear(Drive 3 or what ever the top gear is). Somestimes it works fine. Car has 218000 miles on it. Any ideas to what might be causing this and/or the...


My car just had the same problem and i bought a over-drive bypass plate from IPD and now it works just fine, just put it on yesterday. My overdrive solenoid was the problem. So, instead of paying $160 for a new one, i paid $40 for the bypass plate. I drive a 91 Volvo 940 Turbo with over 250K miles and now i have my overdrive back. I think if your overdrive relay was bad, the shift light would come on on the dashboard. So it may just be your solenoid.
