    Fuse at battery is good place to start. Fuel pump relay under glove box can cause no power to pumps.

Check fuel pump relay behind the grove box. Had a similar issue and is an easy change. Brought mine new for ~$16.00 on ebay.

Hope this helps

Where is the 1993 240 fuel pump relay?

The relay on a 1993 Volvo 240 is behind the glove box. Just remove the panel below the glove box and you should see a white square plastic box - this is the fuel pump relay.

I have a 1993 volvo 240 ran out of gas fuel pump and filter are less than 1 year old i put gas into it and it cranks and want to start but it doesn't. i put 6 gallons of gas any advice

It depends on how far you ran it out of fuel. If you ran it until it would not run any more and then tried to start it again several times; you may need to bleed and prime the fuel system to get it started. You start at the line coming from the tank and move toward the fuel injectors. You have to loosen a fitting and have someone pump fuel until the air bubbles stop and then tighten. A friend once worked for two hours to get his tractor started after his daughter ran it out of fuel. This is why they recommend that you do not run a fuel injected car out of fuel and if you do to turn it off as soon as it starts to miss badly.

I have 1993 volvo 240 I was driving and the car stopped and I had it towed.I started the car up and and it will idle some times and when I give it gas it stalls?

the fuel pump is inside the gas tank, not sure of the location of the relay, it is usually in the under-hood relay center, u should show it in your owners manual.

1987 Volvo 240 DL Starts runs briefly then dies

your injectors arnt opening make sure that your white relay is good check grounds clean off the battery post. whats happening is your cold start injector is spraying a little fuel in to get it going and it is running off of that.
