Question about 1992 Volvo 240

1 Answer

My break lights are constantly going bad on my 240 volvo. From the fuses to the sockets to the little white box in the back where the wiring hooks up to the lights having a melt. Why can't I get my breaks to work for at least a decent amount of time

When the plactic melts, the metal has overheated too much and cannot be restored. Cut out the old sockets, and enough of the wire to get un heat damaged wire. and splice in the new sockets. DO not use the old bulbs, get new ones, or the issue can continue.

I have a 1988 volvo 240 gl and my main fuel isnt getting power


There is a fuse up by the Battery alone in a white receptacle with red wires. It may not be blown but is corroded. Thoroughly clean it. This feeds the Fuel pump circuit.If tat is good the white fuel pump relay under the glove box may be bad.

THE OVERDRIVE OFF INDICATOR LIGHT IS ON. IT HAS THE UP ARROW LIGHT (YELLOW LIGHT) WE HAVE CHECKED THE SWITCH ON THE GEARSHIFT AND IT IS OK. HOW CAN WE TURN OFF THIS LIGHT AND HOW DO WE DO THE OBD 1 ON THIS...


since both the manual and aotomatic trrans have OD which do you have/ f it is a auto trans then this light is on to indicate a problem in the OD control circuit, most likely the solenoid for OD.

It has a built in code reader. It's the little black box by the drivers side hood hing. It has 6 sockets , a wire attached to it that you plug into them , and a button. Turn key on ,don't start, plug the wire into 2 and push button 2 - 3 seconds , little red next to button should light as long as button pushed.Release button , light will blink a 3 digit code . Count carefully. Repeat process again until codes repeat. # 2 socket is ignition # 6 is Fuel injection. Code 1 1 1 means system OK. To reset FI pull the engine control / fuel pump fuse . Think it's 6 on your car. Code meanings can be found on line ( auto X ray)

88 volvo 240 starts most of the time but dies when i push gas


Wow. any number of things. Clogged fuel filter? Fuel pump relay. Try getting in the car when it's quiet around you. Turn the key to "on", not start. You should hear the fuel pumps hum for a few seconds and then stop. If you don't hear them, check your fuse box. They are labeled but I believe #6 is usually the main fuel pump fuse. If fuses are good, then it could be your fuel pump relay. These typically develop cracks in the solder and when they warm up, break contact and theengine dies. The relay is accessed by removing the 7 screws that hold your glovebox in. Slide it out as a unit. Remove the glove box bulb if you're going to be at it any great length of time or your battery will die. The relay is a white rectangular box clipped to a metal frame on the left of the now exposed innards. It has like 6-8 pins. Thump it a couple of times and see if the car will start. If it does, replacethe relay. Order online as much cheaper than dealership.
If you do hear the pumps cycle when you turn the key to on, then most likely you have a bad ignition module. Your '88 has LH2.2 so there is no crank sensor to go bad. The ignition module is mounted to the driver's side under hood by air cleaner. Small flat black rectangle w/ silver metal base.
If all this is Greek to you, try a Volvo specific forum like swedespeed.com

Reverse lights 89 volvo 240 sedan


Hi,
Your brief description doesn't state whether auto/manual? I would be looking at the reverse light switch on the gearbox.
Take the clip off and bridge the connection with a paper clip or similar, keep it away from the vehicle as you will blow a fuse, turn ignition on and bingo, hopefully Blackpool illuminations back of your 240?
Good Luck!
Please remember to rate my effort.

Volvo 240 reverse lights don't work


Hi Sir

Checked the switch and plug? here's how :)

Yes it is the reverse light switch which is hooked up to your gearbox which needs to be replaced. Also it could be the plug going into this switch is a bit dirty or thorn (due to engine temperature and time wear) which in that case means that it needs to be fixed before replacing the switch.

Checking its actually the swtich so you don't buy it for nothing :)

Just to make sure that the circuitry is ok. Go to the gearbox (if it is front wheel drive transverse engine you wont need to go underneath) check where the gearbox and linkages are close to the revers there should be a switch n plug hooked up to it. Unplug it put in a piece of wire to short circuit both wires. Then turn the ignnition key on and if your circuitry is fine the lights should go on :) This means that its the switch for sure :) I hope that this helped your problem :)
