SOURCE: 1988 Volvo 240 DL won't start B230F

I had more or less the same problem. It would only happen when the engine was cold. According to the mechanic, the fuel pump was going bad. After replacing it, I havent had it happen to me again, granted its only been a couple of days since I changed it.

SOURCE: 1989 volvo gl will not turn over. Turn key, dash

Turn you healights on. Turn the car on. If the headlights burn bright, the battery is good. If the engine does not turn over, the problem is probably the starter bendix. The starter bendix is a part of the starter. Have your starter checked at starter repair shop or where you buy your car parts. (You have to unhook the battery terminal from the negative battery post before taking off the starter.)
If the lights did not burn bright, and the engine doesn't turn over. You could have a bad connection. On the Volvo, it has a positive wire and 3 wires that attach to the positive battey post. I clean the battery post with a battery post brush. I clean the terminal ends of the other 3 wires that attach to the positive battery terminal. I use a wire brush to clean the 3 wire terminals. I spray the wire terminals with a electrical motor cleaner (or electrical cleaner) that I pick up at the automotive parts store. Don't spray it on the paint of the car. I put wires on one side of the positive battery terminal. I put a nut on the battery bolt. I tighten another bolt to it. I tighten it tight. I put the positve battery terminal on the positive battery post and tighten (don't tighten this to tight). The positve terminal should be tight enough not to move (but don't tighten it to tight.)
If you clean the positive battery post and negative battery post, you should have bright front headlights when the car is turned on. If not, you have a battery or alternator problem or both.

Engine wont crank


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Also the grounds between the engine and frame or body of the car.

Central locking not working draining battery. Looking for color of wire at fuse panel, so I can disable it; and/or location of relay for system (and any obvious identifying features of the relay).


i used to have the same problem with my '83 what happened is that my came from up-north so in the 240 volvo up to 1986 the wire is "bio degradable" or something like that what happened is when you touch it practically turns in dust... go to the junk yard and get the wire that goes in the driver side is like plastic ring with 3 wires and that will fix the problem... all of them are the same up to 93, get the newest

Starter will not turn over. already replaced starter (tested good)


Make sure you have a good connection between your starter and battery cable to the battery. Also check your ground connection from the battery. Your battery is the source of power that kicks the starter to turn. So just follow the battery cables to be sure they are clean and have a good connection.

2002 Dodge Intrepid accessory/starter relay problem?


Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.
  • Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
  • If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
  • Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_

1989 volvo 740 gl. Put new starter in, now it


i cannot remember but i think there is a starter relay, its located in the engine bay the wire color is the same as its is on the starter motor, and feeds back to the relay, in the relay box in engine bay if this model dont have the relay as some models did not have it fitted and it was a straight from the ignition it can cross over on the ignition switch, and that would need to be replaced, or changed to button press, were by cutting the wire on the starter wire on the ignition and feeding it to a switch button.
