Question about 1984 Volvo 240 Series

1 Answer

Radio and lighter don't work....wind shield wipers either.

The radio and lighter run on the same fuse (8A). i cleaned corrosion off of the fuse holder with a wire brush and replaced the fuse and still, no dice on either. it's like there's no power running to the radio, and the lighter, who knows. i checked all of the wires and they look fine and everything is connected. it's probably a wiring problem of sorts? how do i figure it out? also, the front wipers don't work. same thing, i checked everything and it all looks intact. i believe the wiper motor is fine too. it's gotta be wiring. if i can't figure it out myself are these usually expensive problems to fix? thanks alot for you time.

02Ford Taurus windows windshield wipers locks wont work


Sounds like the wire you used for power was oon the circut for all those other things, or if you pulled the fuse box down to hook radio up through the fuse box, you may have grounded out some wires, or knocked them loose. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure you have power at the fuse box for wiper,dashlight, trunk release, door lock fuses.

Wind shield motor was good but replaced think a bad fuse fuse guide in car is no help need fuse # car is 2003 bmw xi


Hello, check under the engine hood. There could be a couple of black boxes with lids on them. Inside of these boxes are some fuses and relays. Under the lids of these boxes will be description of what fuses and relays are located in the box. Also, look around and see if you can locate the wind shield wipers electric plugs. Check this plug for corrosion, if it is corroded then clean the contact and use some dielectric grease on this plug. GB...stewbison

Wind shield wipers not working


The wind shield wipers not working could mean either the wiper motor is faulty or the fuse, relay or switch in the steering column is faulty.

You will need an auto electrician to have a look.

The wind shield wipers are not working


In winter time 90% of the time the fuse is the problem, people use them to clean snow, or they leave them on when they remote start the car and the windshield is covered by snow or ice. the fuse called wiper is located in the fuse box inside the driver cabin, good luck!
