Question about 2004 Volvo XC90

The 12 volt socket no longer works: the fuse

The 12 volt socket on my 2004 xc90 no longer works: the fuse appears intact. Also the radio display is inaccurate but that began months before the socket problem. What do I check next re: the socket. ( I was told the display would be between $700-$1000 to correct so am letting that go for now.)The car has about 100,600 miles on it but the charger isn't used much.

Could just be the socket itself. The single wire connected on the back tends to fall off on some vehicles. You can just pull out the socket.

My 2004 Ford Escapes radio wont work and it doesnt let me lock my doors when the car isnt running it also doesnt ding when the car doors are open. what is happening?

Hello Al,

Does your dash display a flashing "service soon" indicator?
Have you checked for fault codes?

You have a good battery, your ignition switch is powering up the vehicles dash board and the vehicle will start and operate normally....?

Any lights on the radio display?
Check for 12 volts on the radio power power? check for 12 volts across the accessory / radio position in the fuse box. No power but fuse is good...wiring issue in the harness.

Power across fused circuit no power to radio check radio's in line fuse...fuse good? ... radio bad or disconnected speaker wires.

Make sure all your vehicles grounding positions are clean and tight.

When you say your door locks don't work are your talking about the switch on the door or the remote fob?

Check your owners manual to check for any radio reset info.

I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer. My passenger tail lights are out. I have changed the bulbs and they are still not working. I do have brake lights. Any suggestions

In the front engine control unit (ECU), the taillight relay may be defective. There should be 12 volts on pin 8. Next, check 7.5A DEDICATED FUSE 20 for 12 volts. Check the lamp sockets for voltage.

2004 Mazda Tribute, power mirrors and radio stopped working at the same time. I have check all fuses in the passenger compartment and all the cartridge fuses I can see in the engine compartment. I do

With the ignition switch in the ACC or RUN position, check for 12 volts on the output (BLK/PNK wire) of 10A FUSE 8 in the central junction box. This is the supply line to the mirrors.

While at the central junction box, check for 12 volts on the output of 10A FUSE 27 (ORG/LT GRN) and 10A FUSE 19 (RED/YEL) if there is a separate subwoofer. Check for 12 volts on the output of 5A FUSE 12 (YEL/BLK) to verify that the accesory relay is energized.

Volvo xc 90 12 volt socket does not work. I wish to check fuse but handbook does not identify it. Can you please.

There are actually 3 seperate places for fuses. If you need to replace for the driver or passenger 12volt, its located inside the cabin, open the door and look at the actual side of the dash, there you'll see the fuse box. If its the 04 xc90 it would be fuse #11. If its for the cargo area, its located on the drivers side also just inside the frame almost behind the brake light, # 7. Hope that helps, I ran across the same issue, just wanted to charge my phone.

Drivers side head light doesnt work. I replaced the bulb and i replaced the fuse. What else could it be?

A bad ground. Use a voltmeter and check the voltage at the bulb socket. If you do not read 12 volts at the socket, take a reading from the positive on the socket, and the engine block or battery for the negative. If you then get the 12 volts, you need to fix the ground wire
