1987 Volvo 240 DL...hard-wiring the brake/tail lights...

I have attempted to hard wire the brake and tail lights but have run into a problem. Avoiding have to purchase replacement circuit boards for the lights. I have the wiring diagram for each once removing white connector. However, I am unsure of how to solder the wires correctly onto the bulb holders instead of the circuitry board.

Has anybody done this.... if so, can you send me a diagram of how you did this? I saw one on the net, but it was for a 1981 Volvo and did not show the brake/tail light.

Any help be appreciated.

Thanks

Solder to the circuit board, just in case they interact with other circuits.

Make sure the red wire on the unit is hooked up to power. The blue antenna wire is hooked up (or to the factory amplifier) and the yellow wire on the radio is hooked up to a key on power supply. If it works and you lose the memory when you shut the key off, switch the red and yellow wire power supplies.

I have a 1986 240 dl volvo, when i start the car the temp gauge goes right to overheat, after sitting all night, within 3 seconds? what could cause this


your coolant temp sensor wiring is touching ground. im assuming you have a few oil oil leaks. oil and heat on wiring insulation dont mix. find this wire and make sure it is not touching any brackets or the engine block. this doesnt sound like a hard issue. i think youll find something pretty easy.

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.

1987 Toyota Camry, brake lights...


Your brakes electric circuit is feeding power to a number of other circuits.There is a short circuit that needs to be fixed as soon as possible.It is a visual only repair as it could be crossed anywhere and you would really need to see what has been done to the original wiring.Should not take a sparky more than 1 hour to diagnose and probably fix.
