Question about 1987 Volvo 240

1 Answer

Where is the fuse flasher located in a 1987 Volvo DL? I was told that this was how to resolve the problem of my fuses for the turn signals which keep on blowing the 8A fuse. I was also told by a parts house that there are two flashers. One, a electronic flasher (3 blade terminal electronic flasher) and a directional square electronic flasher. I can't find their location in the car either. Which type of flasher will I need?

The flasher for your car is located in the front seating area, center, under dash, mounted in front driver side of console. Now I'm not much of a Volvo person but I am a Ford electronics specialist and I'm taking an educated guess that this is not your problem but I could be wrong. A flasher in most cases will not short and I believe you may be looking at a wiring problem but again it's a Volvo and could be wrong. It's just the concept either Ford or Volvo is the same and I am just going by my experience in auto repair. I believe the one for the turn signals will be the square one. I gave you a picture of what both of them look like. The round one only has 2 terminals as I gave a picture of that as well. I hope this helps you a lttle at least and good luck.

Where is the turn signal flasher located in an 87 El Camino?


Under the dash on the left side of the steering wheel. You'll see the fuse panel. There is a flasher on the front side that you'll see and one one the backside. They are both the same. On is for the turn signal, one for the flasher.

S40, volvo, keep blowing a turn signal fuse


When a fuse keeps blowing everytime you replace it that means there is a short circuit along its cable. Check the flasher cables or call a car electrician to do it.

1193 plymouth voyager. Brake lighs don't work


Maybe a relay or fuse is bad or the wiring to it.

But you said that the third brake light works.

So the brake switch must be ok.
Turn signals would be the flasher or wiring to it.prev.gif next.gif
CIRCUIT PROTECTION Fuse Block Fig. 1: The fuse box is located under a cover at the lower left instrument panel — 1987 Voyager shown 85616099.jpg
The fuse block and relay bank is located on the driver's side under the lower instrument panel. The fuse block contains fuses for various circuits as well as circuit breakers, horn relay, ignition lamp thermal time delay, and the turn signal flasher. The hazard warning flasher is mounted into a bracket below the fuse block. The individual fuse and relay locations can be found in the wiring diagrams at the end of this section.
is bad.

Turn signal flasher keeps blowing


This is more than likely caused by a Bad Turn Signal Switch Housing inside the Sterring column. The one that the Handle is attached to and Wraps around the Sterring Shaft on the Inside of the Column.

Where is the turn signal flasher located on a 1987 cutlass supreme. I have no turn signals and have changed all the bulbs. Help!


The flasher is located on the fuse block. The other thing that may be wrong could be the actuall switch for the turn signals which is located inside the steering coloum.
