440 2.0Si non-working fuel and temp gauges

Post by tutor52 » Mon Apr 19, 2010 6:11 am

Hi all

I picked up my 440 at the weekend and have found a few niggles but the one that causes most concern - largely because I needed a new car after my old one cooked its engine last week - is the fact that the temp and fuel gauges don't work.

I found some wiring diags on-line and the common denominator appears to be a voltage regulator (item 4.30 on my wiring diags). Are these readily available and where are they located?

Thanks in anticipation

Dave

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

That voltage regulator should be on the back of the instrument panel. As for availability, possibly your local Volvo dealer who will definitely rip you off or you could try Parts Gateway. They will pass your requirements to several new and used Volvo parts suppliers who will contact you with price and availability. The service is first class.
