Re: any way to disable the factory alarm ?

I have a 96 960 wagon, I'm selling it, new buyer doesn't care if find don't work, doesn't care if the alarm works but, when I changed the left front door, the key only unlocks the drivers door, doesn't disable the alarm ... she does want this fixed... I either need to know where the 210/211 relay is...

Re: 850 wagon base, turn, hazards and high beam blows fuse

UPDATE MARCH 18' since a $220 FLIR camera was a tad above my temporary disability budget.... I've continued the fix attempt, I found a jumper wire from the load side of one fuse to the power side of another, it was #20 and 21, high beam fuses. I removed it and found I have no right side high beam bu...

Re: V90 fuel level sending unit

That's a good read, since I have a cast on, I'll give it a try since I'm prone to those frustrating fits of rage.... And when it comes off in a couple weeks, I'll have to go back to work ... Of course Thanks for that, I'll document as much as possible and take pictures, maybe design a fix for these....

Re: 850 wagon base, turn, hazards and high beam blows fuse

Never thought of that but did put a relay in place of the fuse to see if it would reset ... worked once then got really really hot HAHAHA
Will look for a FLIR camera, where would I look first?

Re: 850 wagon base, turn, hazards and high beam blows fuse

Thanks again for the help

Re: V90 fuel level sending unit

Thanks, the gauge is stuck on 1/2 and I've been resetting the trip meter and keeping it full but it would be nice to have a reliable gauge. I can't afford to fix until I get back to work, cast comes off in 3 weeks then therapy so by summer I guess but if they interchange maybe picknpull

Re: 850 wagon base, turn, hazards and high beam blows fuse

Well, all 1156 and 1157 bulbs ($30 bucks) are new and have same wattage ... And it works.... For about 5 minutes. Still blows fuse, so anyone else with wives-tale, rumors, SWAG method (scientific wild-assed guesses) or actual incidents of relief are encouraged to put your thoughts on this page for a...

Re: 850 wagon base, turn, hazards and high beam blows fuse

. I'd take out all the turn signal bulbs out on all four corners of the car and see if it blows the fuse when you use turn signal. If it doesn't, then put the bulbs back in one at a time and see which bulb blow the fuse. What if it still blows the circuit? Obviously it's elsewhere but here's what I...
