Question about 1994 Volvo 850

2 Answers

No interior light

I wonder if you may have the answer to my problem.

I have a volvo 850 estate, and I have lost the interior lights that come on when you open the doors, & map lights (located about the rear view mirror). I still have the door courtesy lights but no interior lights. I have checked & changed the bulbs and still no lights I have also checked the fuse and no blown fuse. Have looked in haynes manual but that does have any information at all.

Do you have any idea what t could be and how the problem maybe solved.

I appreciate any help you can give me

    would the interior light switch cause a problem witht he lights not working? switch has been funny for last 2 weeks, *ie, if you touch switch lights will work, let it go and lights stop working*

    I have exactly the same problem with my interior light switch. Earlier, if I touched the switch and my door was open, then the interior light would come on. But, now it is just total dead!

1996 Volvo 850. No electrical power.

You may have a bad positive battery cable, with a digital volt meter you can test and see if you are getting 12 volts through the entire cable or at least to the cable junction block, in or by fuse relay center, then check cable from there to starter. you should also check the main, battery, power, fuses and relays, usually in the under hood relay center(fuse box)

Check that your rear interior lights shut off. Other than that disconnect the + Battery cable and put a voltage meter between the two. Pull all of your Fuses and replace one at a time checking to see if the voltage changes, this will show you where your problem is.
