Question about 1996 Volvo 960

Open Question

I have a 1996 Volvo 850 GLT with a sunroof leak at left frt door.

When the sunroof is open I can see a drain hole at the front left base of the sunroof and there is also a similar drain at the right front base of the sunroof. To test the drains I poured water into each of the drains. The right side was fine and the water exited behind the right front wheel. On the left side a portion of the water drained into the car near the molding between the dash and the left side front door. A portion of the water drained properly behind the left front wheel.

How can I fix this problem? I thought about putting a plastic tube into the drain and sealing edges at the drain entrance. What do you think?

SOURCE: code stereo volvo 1993 850 GLT

If you need the security code, you need to call a Volvo dealer and give them the VIN number, provided it is the same stereo the car came with.  Most dealers will do it for free, if you can't find one, call Boston Volvo Village.

go to your local volvo dealership, and you must have the car in your name, but ask one of the mechanics if you can have the code for your radio, they'll look it up and give it to you I believe.

SOURCE: volvo 850 won't start occasionally

Hey Kolby!

Sounds like you've got an issue with your alarm module, causing the immobilizer to activate (also known as a "start inhibitor"). I'm not sure what type of alarm you've got, but this will probably help you find out if there is something wrong with it:

There is a panel with relays on it behind the dash. At the bottom of the steering column, by the drivers feet, there is a panel. Remove it to get access to the relay panel (just a couple of torx screws, no breakable clips as far as I can remember). Remove the "double size" relay (probably marked 210-211). Put a wire between the terminals 50E and 50F. This will hotwire the immobilizer and make sure that it always activates when turning the key.

Drive around with the wire in place instead of the relay for a while to see if this helps. If it does you'll know that the problem is related to the alarm system. Keep in mind that you will be without alarm and therefore probably also without remote central locking while doing this.
Make sure that the wire is connected firmly enough so it doesn't come loose. You can also put a fuse on it if it makes you sleep better at night ;)

Good luck!

First thing to look for as a current drain is the glove box light. The switch will slowly move into the dash allowing the light to stay on. This is quite common to the 850's

2001 Volvo V70 with sun roof...car sitting in heavy rain..return to car both front drivers side and passenger side footwells were full of water. What could cause this..no the windows were not open or the...


Not familiar with the Volvo, but many cars (Toyota, Lexus, Acura, Honda, etc.) have drain holes at the corners of the sun roof assembly. These holes allow water that gets past the sunroof gasket to drain through tubes that carry the water to the bottom of the car, where it exits the car.

These drain holes are prone to clogging. If the Volvo setup is like those cars mentioned, you can see the front drain holes by opening the sunroof and looking closely at the two front corners of the assembly that holds the sunroof. I have used plastic weedeater line to open up these lines. Compressed air can also be used.

Hello, We had the same problem about a year ago: 1996 Volvo 850 20V 2.5 L. We turned the ignition switch several times, and all the gauges was came back. I think the ignition switch cause the problem. We haven't had this problem since than.

VOLVO 850 1996


What happens is the door handle linkage breaks and you cannot open the door. You can get it open with a very thin metal strip, by jimmying the latch, but it is really hard to do. I also used to drill a hole in the door to get them open, then replace the door.
