[AWD] [850] 201K on a GIFT '96 wagon!

Hello again, I hesitated to tell you the outcome but the satisfaction of closing out this story outweighs my shame. On Tuesday, June 12, pouring 5 gallons of fresh fuel into the 850 started my day. I installed the odd battery the owners had laying around. It had been on a trickle charger for days-as per my instruction-and the engine leapt to life. My gas was enough to extinguish the LOW FUEL light. I let the engine run throughout my "fun morning". The borrowed "200 PSI" mini-compressor di...

[RWD] [200] [1976] A few notes on what may have been confusing

Some well-intended help in this thread. I take it the thumbs are all A's for effort. The thing is, most of us, including myself, are not familiar with the 1976 242. Comments about "fuse 4 and 6" or even "five and seven" or "fuel pump priming" or "in-tank pump" or harness connections under the rear seat all come from our readers' familiarity with much later versions of our favorite RWD Volvo. One thing which hasn't changed since your car was built is the way a fuse can look "good" yet not...

[RWD] [900] [1994] Manual Radio Antenna Replacement

Hi jd620, 940 sedan or wagon? You have Volvo and generic replacement options for a manual fixed mast and manual retracting. I'm no fan of power aerials (antennas) anymore. Fickle, finicky, with occasional shorts. The made in China versions I'd pulled from junkyards, cleaned (down to motor disassembly and reassembly) do not last. Moisture intrudes again ... just awful. The FAQ does not entertain power aerial replacement with fixed or manual retracting mast antennas. https://www.brickboard.c...

[RWD] [200] [1991] Central locking system failing

Hi John, As spook would politely wish, hope you're well. Just as a note of clarification, the 200 central locking was not used in the 7-series. There are no timer relays in the 2-series, just ordinary metal-cased Bosch as-reliable-as-rain-in-the-PNW SPDT relays. I would go so far as to say, no one has ever solved a central locking trouble by replacing one, although I'm sure many have been changed as a result of the general dim view folks take of relays. As difficult as these are to reach, ...
