Relay Location Diagrams

Volvo 240s and 740s are well known for their reliability and for going many years and miles longer than most other cars. 
But some of their CRITICAL RELAYS are known for failing sometime after around 10 to 20 years of service.  I don't really think these relays were built poorly.  Instead I think it might be the cars are so well built, they simply outlast some of their electronic components. 
So, at least for Volvos, it appears there are some relays that can be considered "wear items."

If one of these critical relays fails away from home, it could be costly (high towing expenses, wild mechanic's diagnoses, etc.). 
Even though some of these relays are VERY common failures and SHOULD be widely known by anyone who works on these cars professionally, I have seen MANY mechanics insist a Volvo needs a new fuel pump, fuel injection computer, air mass meter and other very expensive parts, when in the end it was discovered it was ONLY A SIMPLE INEXPENSIVE $50 RELAY, which you can plug in yourself. 


Should You Carry a Spare Fuel Pump Relay?:
  I have experienced an inconvenient fuel pump relay failure in FIVE of my Volvos over the years (240s and 740s).  After one particularly stupid $200 tow bill,  I made it a point to replace the original Fuel Pump Relays in my older Volvos with NEW ones, and then I would carry a good used one as a spare in my glovebox, just in case.  If you have older or original relays (10 years and up) in your Volvos, or if you are experiencing intermittent or temperature related or fuel related stalls or mysterious electrical issues, it might be time for a relay replacement before it leaves you stranded.

What are the Most Common Relay Type Failures?
I had a 1990 740 Turbo a number of years ago.  When it was close to 10 years old, it began to develop intermittent stalling while driving, but it would eventually start back up after a few minutes of rest. 
After it happened to my wife twice, she refused to drive the car!  I could not re-create it when searching or testing. 

I knew it had to be a critical relay or crank sensor, and THIS CAR HAS TWO RELAYS and a CRANK SENSOR that are commonly prone to failure.  So I replaced the following ALL AT ONCE:
Fuel Pump Relay (3523608) CLICK HERE,
Radio Noise Suppression Relay (1323592) CLICK HERE,
and Crank Position Sensor (3547847)

Sure enough, at least one of those was the problem and the car was good after that, plus I saved money from having my local Volvo dealer play with the car for hours.  

The above three failure items relates to 1990 and later 700 and 900 series Volvos. 
If you own an '89 or newer 240, the your prime failure items will be:
Fuel Pump Relay (3523608) CLICK HERE,
and Crank Position Sensor (3547847)

A 240 does not use a Radio Noise Suppression Relay for the Fuel Injection.

Here's a Brickboard post regarding a couple of Radio Suppression Relay replacements....
"I have had two cars which had a problem with this relay. It is black, usually on the passenger side by the anti-freeze expansion tank. The part number is 1323592-1.  My 740 had poor acceleration and hard cold weather starting here in Minnesota. The problem did not change with a replacement engine out of a 1993 940 (non-turbo). Changing this relay made a huge difference in both acceleration and cold weather starting. The reason I put in another engine is because the old engine froze with a broken intake valve. I have always wondered whether the relay, which supplies a ground to the fuel injection, could have had high resistance contacts leading to the injectors not injecting a rich enough mixture so the engine ran lean?  The second case of this relay going bad was fixed two nights ago. My 1995 940 (non-turbo) with 69K miles had poor acceleration and would surge slightly while running steady.  I thought the problem could be related to the years in storage even though I started it periodically and had a full tank of gas with stabilizer.  I changed the fuel filter, cleaned the IAC valve and throttle body, checked fuel pressure and volume, and I could not find anything wrong. Then I changed this relay and again, it was like a different car."

Here are some emails I received about relay success stories...
"I purchased a RADIO NOISE SUPPRESSION RELAY for my 87 740 Turbo wagon a couple of months ago, and thought I'd drop you a note to tell you that the car has been running great, I've been driving it every day for about the last month, with NO STARTING ISSUES!!!  It was having intermittent starting issues, would be fine for a few days, then leave me stranded. I had replaced both fuel pumps and the fuel injection relay. It would start with a shot of starting fluid, then be okay for a few more days. I would have never thought that a radio noise relay would have an effect on my fuel injectors, but thanks to your site and all the information on it, I was steered in the right direction. You saved me from scrapping out a car that i truly enjoy to drive."  C.W.

"Dave, thanks for posting this information on how relays can interfere with ignition. I had a gradually worsening stalling problem over the past year and a half. The mechanics could not trace it, since the stalling was never associated with a "check engine" light (good mechanics but not Volvo specialists). The symptoms usually were a failure to restart after a short stop, but it eventually worsened to stalling in traffic. I guess the engine heat would cause a bad solder joint to open up and block spark to the engine. I replaced the various relays you mentioned and I have not had any stalling since then. I wonder if a Volvo specialist would have diagnosed the problem earlier? In this case I took your suggestion to the mechanic, and he admitted it would not have occurred to him. Definitely bookmarking your site for future reference!"  M.L.

"Hi Dave. Well probably no surprise to you....the car is working fine now after three months of pulling my hair out, 2 tows and 8 trips to the mechanic.  You're right...too few know of this fix... I'm mechanically inclined, yet can't believe I solved this one with your help with relays from Hungary... of all places...amazing. The car currently has 145K and is a honey.  Your the best."  B.L., Martha's Vineyard, MA

"Hey Dave, Thank you so much. Your hypothesis that failing relays causing intermittent problems was spot on!  I replaced the Overdrive Relay and it instantly fixed my phantom shifting/not shifting overdrive problems also, the car seems to auto shift at the appropriate times and RPM's more precisely, the way I remember it did.  Then I replaced the Fuel Injection Relay and the intermittent stalls have disappeared - a major boost of confidence before Holiday travels!  Holding off on the Noise Suppression Relay and Crank sensor for now because it's running so well!  I did a lot of web crawling before I found your site and can confirm there are lots of 740 owners with the same issues - most seem to spend a bunch on Fuel Pumps and Mass Air Sensors and just about everything else, often without success.  I'd encourage you to post on the various boards out there regarding Intermittent Stalling and Overdrive issues... $80 for the two relays I installed in a couple of minutes and a now in a world of Volvo goodness!"  E.S., Blue Lake, CA

"I had a great outcome with the C70 – I called my mechanic and asked him if he could replace the Fuel Pump Relay in the car.  He said it could be a number of things, but I told him I wanted to start with that first since it was a cheaper resolution and after researching it on your site, I felt pretty sure that was the problem.  Before, the car did the same thing when he tested it in the late day / HOT sun after sitting most of the day.  Car started up and died after a minute as if it were out of gas. Then he changed the relay and I’m back up and running!!   He charged me for his time and the relay – out the door for $100.  I think he should have paid me for finding the problem out for him.  (ha ha).  Thanks again. Even though it was a C70 and not the other model Volvos – the answer was the same.  I'll keep one of those in the glove compartment for sure!  Your site helped a ton!!  M.G.

TESTING VOLVO RELAYS
I have received a lot of emails over the years asking how to test a bad or intermittent relay. Since I'm only an "amateur Volvo tech," the best test I know for such a relay is swapping it with another (try a used one if you have one). 
As for the Crank Position Sensor
(240: '89-'93, 740: '89-'92, 940: all 4-cylinder models), I hear of them going out often enough in later 240/740/900 models that I would consider changing it if you suspect it's original.  It will be MUCH HARDER TO CHANGE if it fails on some back-country road.  The Crank Position Sensor may also be known as an Engine Speed Sensor or Crank Impulse Sender.  Here's an excellent discussion thread and "how to" on replacing this sensor: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=265164. Here's a discussion on testing a Crank Position Sensor: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=316065.

REPAIRING VOLVO RELAYS
You will find a fair amount of information on the internet about this subject if you search, so I will be brief and offer some basics.  Relays made for Volvos are mass-produced and the soldering on the circuit boards is not the best on some of them.  After many years of use, lots of heat cycles, etc, these relays will often become intermittent or fail.  Most of these failures can be traced to a solder joint or two (or three) that has become cracked.  With very little solder talent, you can often repair these relays and if done properly, they can last longer than a new one.  If you're going to try this, a light-duty (25A) soldering iron will work fine.  And it is recommended to use rosin core solder for any electrical work. 

<<< Here we have a typical Volvo transmission overdrive relay. It's a simple procedure to open it.  Use a pick or small screwdriver to gently pry the places shown so you can remove the cover.  If you crack the cover, it's not a big deal, but just try to be gentle. 
<<< Here we can see the back of the circuit board.  Often a solder joint will crack where the relay coil is mounted. On this relay the most common locations where cracks develop are shown by the arrows.  If cracked, you should be able to see the faint crack line going around the pin that sticks out from the solder. In really bad cases you'll find that the coil has actually broken loose from the board. If you pick up a relay and shake it and can hear a rattle, look for a loose coil
<<< If you're curious what the coil looks like, on this relay at the left it's that brass square device in the left side of the photo.  Sometimes simply re-flowing the solder in the cracked places will make the joints solid again, but if you are able, I strongly recommend adding some solder material to these locations to make the joint thicker and stronger.  They crack because they're thin. Making them thicker will help keep that from happening again.

Here is a good article on this subject from the Volvo Club UK: http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/faq/ElectricalCircuitsRelays.html#RepairingandResolderingRelays

COULD IT BE SOMETHING OTHER THAN A RELAY?
YES!
CLEAN YOUR CORRODED CONNECTIONS AND GROUNDS

Relays usually stop working for good when they go bad. Some can be intermittant, but most are not. Most failures are from cracked solder joints on the circuit board. I have more detail about that above.  Occasionally a cracked joint can become intermittent, but usually not. 

For MOST CASES OF ELECTRICAL FAILURE of old Volvos, the relay is usually NOT the problem. 
It's usually a poor electrical connection.  Sometimes it can be an overheated connector at a relay or just a corroded connection or ground in the dash or under the hood. Such a corroded connection will take years to become bad enough to stop the car.  It happens many times faster if the car has been living outdoors for years in the weather for 30 years. 
I have seen many techs and owners over many years spend enormous amounts of money swapping parts when the cure was simply cleaning electrical connections and grounds.
This is what I recommend if you have an old Volvo and you have never taken the time to do this. 
Find every connection and ground you can in the dash and under the hood, loosen them and clean them. Then make sure they are snugged tight.  

<<<
This Fuel Pump Relay was dammaged from an overheated electrical connection.  The owner of this car replaced the relay and it happened again.  He was told by others that it was caused by a POWER SURGE and it was getting too much current.  That is B.S!  If your Volvo gets struck by lightning, then it might be a victim of power surge. The reason for that melting was a poor connection on that power terminal.  It was a victim of slow corrosion that developed over many years (most Volvos are stored outside all the time) and the connection might have been a little loose as well.  Once it had corrosion in there the resistance went up drastically, which caused heat.  The extra heat causes the corrosion to build, causing more resistance, which causes more heat until everything melts.  It wasn't a current overload.  This kind of thing is common and it happens over a long period of time.

The cure is a new plug and new terminals or clean the ones you have really well.  Then you should coat the contact areas with a smear of anti-corrosive zinc paste. 

BENEFITS OF USING ANTI-CORROSIVE ZINC PASTE
If I have not yet fully stressed the importance of clean and tight connections, I will do it again. If we can just just keep our connections clean and tight, almost all of the electrical issues would be history forever.  That would be nice, right?
The below information was contributed by Ron Kwas and should come in very handy:
Anti-Corrosive Zinc Paste (a generic name for zinc dust contained in grease) was originally developed for and required by electrical codes for use on alumunum to copper electrical connections (or other dissimilar metal connections).  No, it's not the same as Dielectric Grease, which is often incorrectly recommended. Dielectric Grease can buy some protection in the form of encapsulation from moisture, but it also carries with it the potential disadvantage of locking in moisture or corrosion which may have already started.  Anti-Corrosive Zinc Paste (or ACZP) is the next evolution of the encapsulation principle, because zinc (lowest on the Galvanic nobility chart) neutralizes corrosion on a micro-scale to truly protect connections on a long-term basis using that encapsulation. And the zinc includes an added protection from corrosion which may want to start under there.  Ron uses and recommends Penetrox A (by Burndy).  Many Volvo fans are familiar with Ox-gard, which is a similar zinc compound. Ron is a huge advocate of treating ALL electrical connections on our cars (except of course High Voltage Ignition connections) with a suitable version of this material.  You can learn a lot more about this stuff at Ron's page here:  http://www.sw-em.com/anti_corrosive_paste.htm 


Main LH Fuse
On 1983 to 1990 240 non-turbo models, the LH fuel injection system uses a 25 amp main fuse located under your hood on the left side fender.  It is not in any type of sealed fuse holder, so the elements can cause corrosion to invade the connector over the years.  Often pulling out and re-inserting the fuse will cure this issue temporarily.  For a long-term fix, clean the contacts with a wire brush, or even better, replace that fuse holder with a water-tight one, like the one found in this page:  Volvo Harness Parts Page
Here's a great page with more useful info about this fuse:  http://cleanflametrap.com/emfuse.html

In case of a no start, what about the
Volvo fuel pump?
 
The main fuel pump in a Volvo is really well built and rarely fails (Bosch simply makes great in-line fuel pumps)

A good survival trick if you think a main fuel pump might be bad... g
ive it a few quick taps with a wrench or screwdriver.  For best results, if possible, tap the pump when cranking the engine (this means while power is going to the pump).  If the pump is failing, often the tap will make it come back to life and it might stay running long enough to get you home.  If it's a bad fuel pump relay, this trick will NOT work because there will be no power going to your pump.  If you think there is no power to the pump, you might try the below suggestions on bypassing the fuel pump relay or "jumping" the pump to get power going to it again.

TESTING/JUMPING YOUR 240 FUEL PUMP CIRCUIT
How to "JUMP" the fuel pump circuit from your Volvo 240 fuse panel:
The fastest method to make the main fuel pump run (bypassing the Fuel Pump Relay) is by jumping two circuits at the fuse panel (left side driver's side kick panel on a left hand drive 240).
You can make a jumper from a piece of wire with stripped ends or even a straightened paperclip. Jump the circuits on the right side of the fuses for best results (<<< see photo)
For a 1979-84 240, jump fuse circuit #5 to #7.
For a 1985-93 240, jump fuse circuit  #4 to #6.


    

<<< CUSTOMER SUBMITTED TIP:  [Provided by Thomas Schofield]  "I was left stranded today by one of my 240s, and was trying your methods to see if it was the relay that had gone out (it was). For whatever reason jumping the socket pins that the relay plugs into didn't give me any results, but bridging the 4th to 6th fuses did (it's an 89).
        So, I had to figure out the best way to get that paper clip to stay in there. Turns out you can put the end of the paper clip through the hole on the end of the fuse terminal and still get the fuse to sit properly/contacted. I did that on both terminals and away I went!  Held like a charm, and easy to recreate in a pinch." 


If the main fuel pump under your car does NOT begin running when jumped (you should definitely hear it humming if you get close), you either have a faulty fuel pump or faulty wiring to the pump (bad wiring is fairly common under an old 240 near the pump).  This test of course assumes your battery is good.
If one of the fuses at those circuits blows during this test, the pump circuit power wiring is shorting to ground somewhere between the fuse panel and the pump.

More detailed info can be found at http://cleanflametrap.com/transferPump.htm.

GETTING YOUR 240 HOME WITH A
FUEL PUMP RELAY FAILURE
If you find that the above jump test makes your fuel pump run and you don't have a spare relay with you (or if your spare doesn't work either), here's a trick that will get you home.

The simple trick of course is to jeep the jump wire (or paper clip) in place while driving.  If you can manage to do that, your pump will run continuously and you can drive the car without any adverse affect. This won't hurt anything it as long as you have fuel in the tank.  Keep in mind that when you turn off the car, your fuel pump will continue running until you disconnect the jumper. 

JUMPING A MAIN FUEL PUMP FROM THE
240 RELAY PLUG
Trying to securely mount a jumper wire (or paperclip) to the fuse panel so it won't fall off can be difficult. There is another way that I find much better. 

Find your fuel pump relay and unplug it.  Look at the plug and the wire colors. There will be a RED wire going into one of the terminal inserts.  That is the power from the battery.  Also find the YELLOW/RED wire(s) (usually two of them going into ONE terminal).  These wires go to the fuel pumps.  Jumping or connecting the RED WIRE to the YELLOW/RED WIRE in this plug will
be the same as jumping the two fuses shown above.  And it will be much easier to stick a paperclip (or other device) into the plug slots without them falling out.

<<< Here's a simple tool you can make yourself and throw in your glove box. I have one in mine.  It's made with two easy to find .250 inch (6.3 mm) MALE crimp terminals and a piece of wire (14 gauge or larger preferred, but not required). These male terminals will plug right into the relay plug slots after the relay is unplugged. It might be a long while before you use it, so put a tag on there to remind yourself that it should jump the RED to the YELLOW/RED wire to provide power to the pump.

IN-TANK PUMP (PRE-PUMP) HOSE ISSUES
Applies to all 240/260 and many 700 models

This is a VERY common problem in Volvos reaching the age of 15 years and older.  Often the actual in-tank pump is NOT broken, but the SHORT RUBBER FUEL HOSE that goes from the pre-pump to the metal feed tube inside the tank decomposes and falls apart after years of being submerged in fuel.  When this hose ruptures, the in-tank pump can no longer push fuel out to the main pump. The main pump under the car will try to make up the difference, but it usually can't keep up, especially when your tank is half full or less, when your fuel level is at or below that hose rupture.

A GOOD TEST:
If the symptoms go away after filling the tank up, then this is probably your problem. Opening the top of the tank (in the trunk or cargo area), removing the gauge sender and pump assembly and replacing that small hose is the cure.  A simple piece of 5/16 inch fuel injection hose about 3 inches long usually works fine.  And replace those cheesy original hose clamps with nice new ones while you're at it.  You might be shocked to find out how many people have been advised by service technicians that they need new fuel pumps when only a short piece of fuel injection hose was needed.

This Relay is OUT OF STOCK/NLA through my sources.
However Volvo PN 1259926 listed HERE is a correct substitute: CLICK HERE.

Relay Location Diagrams
This relay may not be found in the usual fuel pump relay location shown by the Relay Diagrams I have listed above. Instead, it will usually be found in the front row, second from the right, in the fuse/relay board. If there is a second identical one to the right of it, that should be the high beam relay.
This relay is also designated as a Heater/Fog Light relay for 1993 and later 850 models.



1323592 Volvo Noise Suppression Relay1323592 Noise Suppression Relay (AKA: Radio Suppression Relay or "RSR"). 
Genuine Volvo part made by Stribel.

This relay is found under your hood.  Also used as a Cooling Fan Relay on some Volvos, and some 700/900 models will have TWO under the hood (one for noise suppression and one for cooling fan).

Used in the following Volvos:
1988-93 240, 244, 245 (used as AC Cooling Fan Relay if the car has a front AC condenser fan)
Most 1987-92 740, 760, 780. Used as Noise Suppression Relay. Also another one used as an AC Cooling Fan Relay if two such relays are present.
1991-95 940 and 940 Turbo. 
Used as Noise Suppression Relay. Also another one used as an AC Cooling Fan Relay if two such relays are present.

1993-97 850 (used as Fog Light Relay)



The failure of this relay when used as a Noise Suppression Relay will cause a No-Start or Intermittent Start condition.
For 700/900 models with a non-turbo engine, this relay is mounted under the hood, often at the right shock tower at or or near the coolant reservoir.  For 700/900 models with B230FT (turbo) engines this relay is often mounted near the left shock tower.
On some models you will find TWO of these.  In these cases one will function as a Noise Suppression Relay and the other an Auxiliary Cooling Fan Relay.  They are interchangable and can be swapped during an emergency if the Noise Suppression Relay fails.  If the Noise Suppression Relay starts going bad, you may get intermittent starting problems (and/or intermittant running) since the electrical pulse to the fuel injectors will be interrupted. If the engine turns over OK, but it won't fire, then this could be the problem.  Often as these cars age, the failure point will be the 4-pole connector plug (and insert terminals) instead of the relay.

FAILURE OF
VOLVO BULB FAILURE SENSORS
The Bulb Failure Sensor (also known as a Bulb Failure Relay) is a device found in the 1978 and newer 240 (and 700/900 models).  Its function is to alert the driver of a failed low-beam headlamp, parking lamp, tail lamp or brake lamp by sensing the balance of current draw between the left and right side lighting circuits.   When that dash light comes on, it means the sensor recognizes that one side is drawing more current than the other.  This is supposed to mean there is a bulb out, but often it can be triggered by incorrect bulbs, mismatched bulbs, or even when one side has a newer bulb than the other.

Variations of this sensor.
ROUND Sensors:

<<< Red case, PN 1362370. Fits 1986-93 240, 1986 and later 740, 780, and 1991-94 940.


<<< Yellow case, PN 1362278. Fits 1978-85 240 and 740 through 1985.
<<< White case, PN 1362276, found in a 1991 245 (German spec. with no third brake light) that was later imported to Norway.

Square Sensors:
Yellow Square case, PN 3545704, for 1988-90 760, 1991-94 940 SE and 960
Blue Square case, PN 9128814, also fitting
1988-90 760, 1991-94 940 SE and 960.

The failure of these relays is becoming more frequent in older Volvos. 
FAILURE SYMPTOMS: The symptoms of failure can be headlights or tail lights (or sometimes just one whole side) that will not work even after verifying that fuses, switches, headlight relays and wiring are all in good order.

VOLVO 240 HEADLIGHT RELAY INFORMATION
1307991 Volvo Headlight Step Relay
1.  High/Low Beam Step Relay, all year 240s, Volvo PN 1307991. This is the best known headlight relay, because it sits under the hood in plain sight. There are two versions of this relay. Click here to see this info.  This relay controls the switching (or stepping) between low and high beams. It's controlled by the flasher stalk on your steering column. Some have been known to fail when as new as 10 years old and some last well past 30 years without problems.

FAILURE SYMPTOMS: You may suspect it has failed if you can no longer switch between low and high beams (you can hear the loud audible 'click' if it's working).
Also, if your headlights stay OFF when in low or high beam mode (so that only low beams work or only high beams work), then it is most likely this relay.  But when checking, look at the two connector plugs at the bottom. If one looks melted, then there's a poor power connection causing excessive heat and a poor connection.  This is usually caused by corrosion, so cleaning these contacts is a good idea.   
Unlocking the Mysteries of the Volvo 240 Headlight Step Rela
Unlocking the Mysteries of the 240 Headlight Step Relay
These relays are rather special in that they have a latching feature.  A latching feature is where you can click and release a momentary button or switch and the relay will lock (latch) in an on or off position. For this Volvo relay, one click latches it "ON" and another click latches it "OFF."  I have created the diagram PDF at the left for anyone who wants to better understand how these work.
 I have also added a test procedure to this diagram if you think you have a broken relay.



Later 240s ('86-'93 only) are equipped with a SECOND headlight (dash) relay.
(Earlier 240s have only the one relay above)

1324749 Volvo Dash Headlight Relay2. Main Headlight Relay,
This relay exists in the 1986-93 240 only, using Volvo PN 1324749 (or 1235013) (available below), or Bosch PN 0332015001,
0332015006, 0332015012.  Beginning in 1986, Volvo added this "main headlight relay" to the 240. Prior to this the 240 used only the dash switch to turn on the headlights and then the common high/low step relay under the hood to turn on high beams. This "main" relay is a mystery to many 240 owners, because it's tucked away out of sight under the dash.  This relay fails less often than the above step relay.

FAILURE SYMPTOMS: Your headlights may not come on at all when the dash switch is turned, but your high beams will flash normally when the flasher stalk is pulled back. Or the headlights might turn off on their own after a short time with the switch on. The headlights may come back on after switching them off, then on again. Or you might find that you need to wait a while and try the switch again (after things "cool off").  All of this assumes you have a good battery and good fuses.

1324749 Volvo Dash Headlight RelayWhy did Volvo add this dash relay?:  Volvo added the "main headlight relay" to the 240 to take the heavy current load away from the dash headlight switch, so the heat melt damage typically found in early switches would stop happening.  It solved that problem, but then heat melt damage would sometimes begin to occur in the relay plug.  The reason for this melting is due to slow corrosion of the power contact point in this plug. This can take years. The corrosion will cause resistance in that connection, which generates more heat. More heat causes more corrosion. The cycle continues until things begin to melt like the photo at left.  Not all main relay plugs have this happen, however most have some damage. This condition eventually damages the power circuit to the point the relay loses power and fails to operate.  Often making a repair can be as simple as cleaning the terminals and relay posts or replacing the bad terminal inside the plug and the plug too if it's bad. If the plug becomes melted like this one, a new plug is available cheap (these items can be found HERE).

WHERE TO FIND THIS RELAY IN YOUR 240: In the '86-'87 240, it should be found behind the clutch or brake pedal area (see relay location diagrams here). For the '88 to '93 240 (exact year of this change is not certain), it will be behind the center dash area, just below the top accessory gauge locations (or below your radio if yours is up high in the dash).

1324749 Volvo Dash Headlight Relay<<< Here is a look at the main headlight relay in the center dash location in a late 240. 
This one is found next to the power door locking relays, which can be seen to the right of the headlight relay.
This photo was taken with the entire dash removed. You should be able to get to it by removing the center air vents. No, Volvo didn't make it easy.

240 Headlight Step Relay
Installation info - EARLY versus LATE relays.
This is a Specific Problem & Solution for 1990-93 240 only.
Volvo 240s remained about as consistent as any car could be for their 18 year production. One change in the headlamp relay has been discovered and this small article will explain it.
<<< The two relays in the photo on the left are both assigned Volvo part number 1307991. There is a difference in how the mounting bracket is attached.  

The one on the LEFT is the new Volvo part available now. It's the same relay used in 240s from 1975 until approximately 1989 (this is known as the EARLY type relay). The one on the RIGHT is a little different and was used from 1990 to 1993 only. This LATER type relay is NOT currently available from any source. The good news is that either relay will work for any 240. But if you have a 1990-93 240, a change is needed to fit an early relay in your car properly. The solution is below.


The differences in more detail:
The early relay (on the left) has two extra pins (don't worry about these, they make NO difference for a later car).  The main concern is that the later relay (on the right) is turned 180 degrees on it's mounting bracket. Why Volvo allowed this change to occur is beyond my imagination.  This 180 degree turn presents a potential problem when using a currently available relay (EARLY type) in a 1990-93 240, because twisting the wire harnesses 1/2 turn so the two plugs can be plugged in will put an unwanted strain on the wires and connectors. Bad things happen to Volvo harnesses when this is done. 

SOLUTION
The solution for this is simple. The below instructions will show you how you can remove the connector terminal inserts from the socket plugs in your 1990-93 240, turn the sockets 180 degrees, and put the terminals back.
Removing and Replacing Connector Pins:
CLICK ON PHOTOS FOR LARGER IMAGES

<<< This first photo shows the relay removed and the two socket plugs sitting there waiting for action by a Volvonut.

<<< Here we have a typical relay socket plug used in Volvos. NO, This is NOT a step relay socket, but it'll work for this demonstration.
Notice the metal teminals inside the holes? Not all the holes always have terminals. If you're curious which ones do, or you want to see the diagram for the headlight relay, scroll way down.

<<< You'll need a tool for this part... a long sharp pick will do. A micro screwdriver can also be used. If your tool is not small enough on the tip, a little grinding will fix it as I did on this pick. Even a stiff piece of piano wire can work for this step. Maybe even a paperclip, also it may bend too easily.

<<< Now, pay attention to the little openings at the top of the little rectangular holes. That wide spot is where you need to insert your pick. The idea is to insert the pick in about 3/8 inch or so and push down to flatten the locking tab on the terminal. That locking tab holds the terminal in the socket. In the next photos, the locking tab will be easy to see.

If your socket doesn't have a wider opening that you can see, just pay attention to the below pics to know which side of the terminal to insert the pick into to push on the tab.


<<< In this photo you can see the terminal backing out of the hole after the locking tab was released.

<<< Here's a good view of the locking tab on the crimp terminal. After you release the tab and pull the terminal out of the socket, you may find that your tool bent and flattened the tab, so it may need to be pushed back out so it still engages when re-inserted into the socket. It needs to be sticking out like in this photo to work correctly. If you accidentally break the tab off, you'll need to crimp on a new terminal.


After all terminals are out, now its time to turn your headlight sockets around 180 degrees and then re-insert the pins, paying careful attention to insert them in the correct order.... see the diagram below. And make sure the locking tab is on the correct side of the socket hole. As it gets inserted, you should hear a 'click' which tells you it has locked into place. Always make sure by giving the wire a little tug.

And watch when you plug the sockets back onto the relay to see if any terminals get pushed back out. That can happen sometimes if the tab hasn't fully locked the terminal in place.

<<< Here's how the wire colors need to go for the headlight relay sockets.
This diagram is a view from the TOP of the sockets (the surface that connects to the relay).
