Question about 1982 Volvo 240 Series

2 Answers

YESTERDAY I WAS DRIVING MY 1988 VOLVO 244DL DOWN A DIRT ROAD. I WAS GOING SLOW AND DOWN SHIFTED TO FIRST (IT'S AN AUTOMATIC). THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS. TODAY, I TRY TO START IT AND THERE WAS NOTHING. BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR ARE NEW. I TRIED JUMPING THE STARTER AND IT DIDN'T WORK. I TOOK IT TO A LOCAL PARTS DEALER AND THEY BENCH TESTED IT AND IT DIDN'T WORK. I THEN HAD THEM BENCH TEST THE NEW ONE AND IT WORKED. AFTER I INSTALLED IT. STILL THE SAME PROBLEM. I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THERE IS A STARTER RELAY OR A NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH. I DID TRY TO START IT IN NEUTRAL. BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED. I JUMPED THE STARTER AND DROVE ABOUT 25 MILES AND MADE IT HOME WITH NO PROBLEMS. BUT AGIAN IT WOULDN'T START. IDEAS?

    cut off in motion. Tested fuel pump, engine control module, coil, all tested good. Is there a relay switch that can be reset or replaced?

My boss has a 85 244 DL. Hers had the same problem. We placed a momentary button on the dash for the starter motor. That fixed the problem she had with it not turning over with the key.

Either something shook loose and then regained connection, or your air filter became clogged with dust. Check your air filter.

this sounds like transmission failure as limp mode would allow reverse and 2nd gear only to allow you to drive to a shop to have it checked out.

You might also want to check your fuel filter and your fuel pump for proper operation before going on so that you dont spend more for uneccessary repairs.
