What is wrong with a 1987 240DL Volvo wagon automatic that dies when idling for a minute or so but will run if you give it a little gas?

My 1982 Volvo 244GL had a voltage regulator in the back of the alternator so I assume your 1984 is the same

You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Simply switch on the key to initialize and crank the engine to activate. What kind of problem are you having to ask this type question?

It depends on your experience with auto repair. The fuel pump itself is about a 2 and the pump inside the tank is about a 3.

Sounds like the charging system failed and the car ran until battery power was deleted.

Found the wiring diagram for where the colored wires go to connect to the bulb connectors, so I'm thinking my wiring to replace the circuit board is not correct. This is a 1987 Volvo 240dl. Can anyone offer any assistance? I tried following the circuit board as to where to place the wires, but it cannot be correct. If anyone has hard wired theirs, please advise.
