    Half of electrics stopped working but yet the fuses are okay

    Time to do a wiggle test of the fuse box wiring. The circuits mentioned are not directly connected , but may travel through common wiring plugs. Try the fuse box fuses again (there may be more than 1 fusebox) Interior light / Radio / Antenna / Clock may be on a battery circuit but not connected to the Fog light not the turn signals other than a connecctor plug or simular.

    Low beams suddenly stopped working -1988 Volvo 760 GLE

    I doubt that the obc is the source of the problem.
    More than likely, it's the relays.
    They're not easy to remove, until you remove the ashtray housing, which is 4 fixings in total, if I recall correctly.
    Good luck.

    Radio will not power on

    I had an identical problem, but i fixed it with a dew fuses, it turns out that these volvos have 3 different fuses for the radio, there are two inside the car in the panel, and the third is under the hood just behind the battery. See if any of those fuses are bad, if all the fuses are good, check the connections behind the radio, i had to pry the connections to make them fit better on the back; if none of this works, then its most likely a bad radio or faulty wiring...

    The headlights on my '97 960 don't work at all

    1. You can never test a fuse by looking at it, you must physically test it with a circuit tester.
    2. Your problem is either in your headlight dimmer switch or your headlight relay.
    For location of relay, go to your local Autozone and ask to be shown its location.

    Radio problem

    The 1997 960's came from the factory with a 4 digit radio code on a card in the glove box. If the card is lost, the Volvo dealer should be willing to look it up for you if you show the parts guy the registration. If the radio has been changed, you may be out of luck unless the person who swapped radios wrote the code on the outside of the case.

    Do hold onto the radio code once you have it. Every time the battery is disconnected to do work on the car, the code will need to be reentered.
