If you can find the horn you can take a two wires and run the from the positive and negative posts of the battery. Horns don't usually fail. the horn switch is in the steering wheel and could have open wires in the wiring harness that that runs down the steering column. Lastly there is a horn relay that is wired between the switch and horn. The easiest thing is to take off the horn wire and spray some WD40 on the terminal and on the horn. Tighten up the terminal end with a pair of pliers for a snug fit.

1994 volvo 850, there is no current going to the fuel pump, pump fuse is ok and have put a wire to the alarm relay 50e, 50f but still there is no current going to the fuel pump.

have you done any work on the car or any accidents. anything could have happened but sounds like you have a bad ground or clipped wire check that. you might have to run a new wire to the pump from the fuse box. that is what i would do.

Where is the horn located on my volvo

The horn is located just behind the grille, there are two horns there. They are held in by 2 10mm bolts or Torx and the connector is a spring style. Just lift the hood and they will be right out in the open.

How do I fix the horn on my volvo?

Depending on what is wrong with this horn is the first step. I would check the fuse first off. Replace if needed. Then I would test the wires at the horn and make sure they complete a circuit. If that does not solve it it could be in the steering wheel which is a pretty good size job. Let me know if this solves it and we can go from there.

Engine fan fuse blows every few days2001 volvo s40

Fuses are there for a reason, if they keep blowing it stands a chance your fan motor is on the fritz and overloading the fuse so it pops. Make sure the tempreture sensor is working ok and not keeping the fan running when it should be turning off.

Front driving lights on rear not but bulbs ok & fuses

Hey Mozza!
If you know the bulbs and fuses are ok there's only one explanation left: A short/broken wire somewhere. Look for a wiring diagram for you car here:

After that it's just a matter of pulling out the multimeter and start measuring!
Good luck!

check all of your fuses there should be a fuse pannl under he hood and it will have large fses called maxi fuses in it also there may be some relays in there as well. the lid of this fuse pannel should have an explanation of what each fuse and each relay is for.
