Those wires are part of the engine wiring harness. You usually need them because the insulation comes off of them. They can be repaired by a good shop if the rest of the harness is ok otherwise you will need to replace the whole harness

SOURCE: 88 s10 wiring problem

if you have a 4.3 liter the wire from the positive post on the battery should go to starter and to the post with 10mm nut on the back of the alternator with a 2nd wire that goes to your ignition coil. ignition coil wire should have a fusible link in the line.

It's possible that it's the fuel pump relay, bad computers or a host of other causes. The first thing I would do is to check fuses #'s 4 and 6. Rotate them in the holder as sometimes they get corrosion on them that hinders good contact.
You can put in a jumper wire from 4 to 6 and that should turn the pumps on and you can then start the car if the relay was the problem. Don't drive around like this as the pump will be on all of the time and it's not safe to have them in this state in case of an accident.

It truly sounds like a loose or faulty/corroded ground wire. Almost 99% of the electrical problems I have experienced with Volvo's are loose wire related. There are a number of ground wires underneath the hood grounding the engine. However my first suspect would be the connections on the alternator and battery.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like either you did not connect the seat belt restraint wiring when the seats where put back in. This is a common problem. You will need to look under the seat and make sure that there are no loose wiring at all. The SRS is for the seatbelts.

Check to make sure the power /and or the ground wire was reconnected to your battery after they installed the new battery. Being a 94 someone my have installed a different radio other than the factory one.They may have ran a new wire to the battery.
I hope this helps.

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
