0.3 VOLVO 240 260 Fuses and Relays


Fuses - VOLVO 240/260

Fuses are designed to fail when a current exceeding the rating is passed accross the terminals. Some failures can be caused by isolated instances- accidentally shorting out light connectors when changing a bulb. In isolated instances the fuse can just be replaced by a new one. However, frequent failure of a fuse indicates other problems which should be investigated. All the electrical systems and the wiring that is protected by that particular fuse should be examined. When buying spare fuses note the style and size of fuses you need as there is some variety.

Relays - VOLVO 240/260
Relays are electrically operated switches that are used to perform logic functions (wiper delays, bulb out sensors) and enable the control of electronic items without the current passing through the switch.

Occasionally relays stop functioning correctly. Some become hot when running and the internal connections can eventually fail.

The relays in the 200 series are mounted in various positions under the dash. Accessing each relay is different depending on the location:


Typical Relay Locations
1 Central door lock opening relay
2 Central door lock closing relay
3 Overdrive relay
4 Power window relay (1980 and later)
5 Air conditioning relay
6 Turn signal relay
7 Interior lighting time delay relay
8 Rear wiper intermittent relay
9 Windshield wiper intermittent relay
10 Rear window defogger relay
11 Bulb failure warning sensor
12 Fuel pump relay
13 Rear foglamp relay (1986 and later)
14 Main lighting relay (1985 and later)
15 Seatbelt reminder relay
