Overdrive relay location 760 Volvo?

User Avatar
Up through 87 the relay was located behind the ashtray behind the fuses. 88 and up, the relay panel is accessed from the passenger side panel on the side of the center concol. If earlier version, relay "I" - if behind side panel, relay "G".

Is it common for the wiring to the day running lights and headlights to get so hot that the insulation burns off and why does it happen?

Check the earthing points for the lights, unbolt and clean them. heat in electrical system is usually caused by high resistance

Can you bypass the computer on a semi truck to get speed?

User Avatar
It's possible, but you need to know-how to do this. Also note that, if your truck is equipped with a Qualcomm system, it will report any time you travel at speeds over what you're permitted by your company. Additionally, that same information will be downloaded from the engine control computer by the mechanics whenever your truck goes in for a major service. So, if you wish to retain your employment, and not have a black mark on your DAC report - which will hinder your efforts to get hired on with another company after you're fired for unauthorised altering of the engine controls - you'd be better off not to attempt it.

How do you replace headlight relay 1989 760 wagon?

User Avatar
I have a turbo wagon 760gl, the relay is actually composed of two relays and is located behind a kickpanel on the passenger side left, to the right and below the radio. I had to unscrew the relay panel pull it out about 3" then you can see the large dual relay in the middle of the panel. I used tooth picks to release the plastic holddown tabs (4 in all) and then I was able to work it loose. The thing runs 130 at ftp groton or import parts specialists in boise. I was able to resolder mine, because it had cold solder cracks around the copper tabs on the bottom and it has continued to work for about a year now.

You have to purchase the whole unit from most suppliers, even recyclers. You could re-glue lens only if you could find it by itself. Good Luck with that!

How do you change the brake lights on your 1987 Volvo 760?

User Avatar
The real question is "how can a normal adult hand possibly change a brake, backup or signal light bulb?". I have found that correct arm angle is the key to success - failing that, a "handy" kid brother or sister.

Asked in Car Horns, Volvo 760

Where is the horn on a Volvo 760 located?

User Avatar
well I have 1990 Volvo 760 and its horn is in the regular place, in the middle of the steering wheel. But my horn doesn't normally work when I am driving because my key lock is so worn, maybe your car has the same problem. I have to turn my key towards the off direction by about 5 mm before my horn and radio will work.
