Question about 2006 Volvo V50

1 Answer

Volvo V70 (2008) won't charge my cell phone. I thought it might be the phone charger itself, but I bought a new one and it doesn't work either.

Probably just the fuse.

Check if it works in the boot, you have a permanently live 12v socket in the boot. If it works on this one then it must be the fuse which controls the two front 12v sockects.

To access the fusebox - Carefully remove the cover underneath the dash board in the passenger footwell. It is held on by two clips, these are released by pushing the centre of the clip in.

Once you have the cover off remove the two front screws holding the fuse box in place, then carefully pull the fuse box down and towards you. The handbook will tell you which of the fuses relates to the 12v sockets. Remove the fuse and replace with a matching one, these can be purchased from most garage for around 10p.

Before replacing the fuse box check the socket works. If it doesn't then you will need to get it checked out by the dealer or an auto electrician.

Your radio has been replaced, not uncommon for that year and the SC series of radios. The dealer will need to remove the radio (real easy to do) and has to get 2 numbers from the tag on top and query them through the Volvo DMS system. Note that if you enter the wrong code 3 times the radio will say OFF and you will have to leave the key in position 1 for up to 4 hours till the radio anti-theft resets and you can try again.

Volvo cigarette lighter keeps blowing fuse


I had this same problem after buying a used 2008 xc 90 and had replaced the fuses numerous times. I finally called the dealer to see about changing the sockets and the girl that took my call told me not to pul the charger in while the car ignition is on. She told me there is a saftey feature on the volvo that shorts itself out if anything is plugged in while the car is on. We have followed that rule now for the past 3 months and have had no problems with the fuse blowing. Once the charger is plugged in I just leave it plugged in and I can attach my phone/ipod while the car is on and it's fine as long as you don't try to plug the charger into the socket while the car is on. Strange I know but it works!!!

My lighter won't work and this means my cell phone


If the lighter won't work, your cell phone charger might not either. It is possibly the fuse or it has burned or shorted out. The fuse panel is under the dash on either side of the car. Look at the diagram on the cover and replace the fuse with exact number.

Does Volvo cigarette ligher socket accept standard chargers?


Check the fuse in the car charger, and try in another car. The manual with should show where the fuse location. (because it worked befor you charged it,sounds like the car cord fuse is blown or the cord is defected)
