I dont know how to pull the codes on a 1993 volvo


Volvo Code Retrieval Accessing Trouble Codes 89-93 models (and later non-turbo/non-OBDII models)

Fuel Codes Locate the diagnostic unit behind left strut tower and remove its cover.(see image) Connect selector cable to socket #2,which tests the fuel codes. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position(engine not running). Enter the diagnostic mode by pressing the push button on the diagnostic unit for at least 1 second, but not more than 3 seconds. The red LED light will start to flash,count the number of flashes in 3 flash intervals. The flashes will be seperated by 3 second intervals.Make note of all codes. If no codes are stored,the LED will flash 1-1-1,which means the fuel system is operating correctly.

Ignition Codes To access the ignition codes,follow the above procedure,but with the selector cable connected to the #6 socket on the diagnostic unit.
NOTE:Turbocharged models may have seperate codes for the turbo system and are accessse by hooking the selector cable to the #5 socket.

Rate this.

Volvo 940 se turbo estate 1995 engine cuts out whilst driving will restart in minutes have renewed fuel filter ignition switch fuel pressure ok will be ok for a while then fault returns


I would replace the fuel pump relay, and the engine speed sensor. I would need more information to rule one or the other out, but at this mileage, neither part is terribly expensive, and both have been known to cause your same exact condition

940 VOLVO 2.1 T/DIESEL WENT TO IT TWO DAYS AFTER USING IT, TURNED KEY JUST HEARD CLICKS THEN WENT DEAD, CHECKED ALL FUSES CHARGED BATTERY,STILL SAME. Thankyou


This could be a relay problem. (they appear to be a lot of the electrical problems with volvos.)
try twisting them gently while turning the ignition key.
You will locate them behind the ashtray, but in order to remove/replace them, you will need to remove the housing. 2 screws for the cigar lighter, and it will just 'pop off'.
good luck.

I think I have a bad alternator on my 1992 volvo 940 turbo


Hi!
Start by charging the battery completely. Then, start your car and while running, remove the NEGATIVE battery cable from the battery. If the car dies, your alternator is bad. If it keeps running, reinstall the battery cable and turn the car off. Check for something that's on that would drain your battery like a light in the trunk, glove box, etc. that wont shut off.
