1990 Volvo 240- Bizarre Temp Gauge Isssues

My temp gauge read really low for a while and then it read high, just below the red. Sometimes it would just drop suddenly. So I bypassed the temp compensating board. No change. I bought a new sensor, no change. I grounded the lead and it went high but not all of the way. IF I unplug it it goes down...

Re: Passenger Side Hood Latch Won't Release

Open! I had my son push DOWN on the hood after it had already opened on the driver's side and it popped, first try. Now I am going to go about adjusting and lubricating to avoid this in the future. Thanks for the help. It is funny after messing with it by myself for an hour, to having open first try...

Passenger Side Hood Latch Won't Release

Hello, I have search and found lots of good info but I think my 850 being a 1994, it is a little different.

1994 Turbo Hose Question- Vacuum Leak

I am having all sorts of issues chasing down a P0103 code. I have read every possible post. I have a couple of stupid questions... Be nice! 1. Is the insert that has the vacuum line, hose from breather and heating element in the hose from air box to turbo supposed to spin freely? It is in there but ...

1994 850 Illuminated Switch ID

Hello,

Can someone tell me if the headlight switch is illuminated? It is dark along with the sunroof switch. I assume they both are backlit. Is that true? I appreciate your help.
