You need a code reader, there are no cheap generic testers for pre 1995 (you have OBD 1) cars your system can only be teated with the factory tester or other testers made by Snap-on or Mac tools, they are very pricey, $100's I would suggest you check ebay, I see thes types of testers on there all the time, shoulf be able to get one used for about $50-$75. I am sorry I can't be more help.

1991 Volvo 240 backup lights do not work


The 240 was always a bit susceptible to poor electrical connections in the taillights. Check all the connections at the taillights thoroughly and then work back through the wiring. The other major possibility is that the reverse-engaged switch (is engaged by gear shift) has failed. I can't remember off the top of my head, how to get at a Volvo's switch but a bit of poking around the gearstick should probably find it for you.
Hope this helps - please message me if you require extra info/help Sherwin

Hood latch won't release hood. 91 volvo 240.


Have had same problem on 1990 240 DL. Go underneath, tap ball at end of hood latch sideways with small hammer (take a good look at it --- you should be able to see which way it needs to go to clear). Once released clean and lubricate.

1991 volvo electrical problem


When did you change the timing belt last? Have you checked to be sure the cable from battery plus terminal is secure and tight as it runs to the starter? I would check the battery cables - if the starting current is too high and the cable is corroded or loose, the starter solenoid and starter motor might not be getting any current. I run a heavy duty battery jumper cable from the positive battery terminal direct to the positive starter terminal. If the starter turns, the problem is in the electrical connection in between. Another idea - there are fusible links under the hood designed to blow when overloaded. One of these might be out.
