How do you replace the gas tank cover on a Volvo wagon?

Buy a new plastic hinge Volvo part number 31265160. To replace the hinge, push the two center pins through using a punch. This will free up the broken hinge and you can remove it. Attach the new hinge to the door, then set the grommets into the openings and push the pins in to retain the grommet. BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH THE PINS TOO FAR. All they need to be is flush with the grommet.

How do you replace a Regina fuel pump in a 1992 Volvo 940 4DR sedan?

On a Lift from below.

I cut the back of my hands removing an almost new pump from the green machine after I totaled it.

My mechanic put it in by droping the tank. The hoses are the worst part. I cut them on the salvaged part.

MoreIn theory you can replace it through the access plate in the trunk. That's how I remover the one in the green machine. It is real hard to disconnect and reconnect the hoses from above. Putting the car on jack stands and crawing under doesn't help much. With small hands and long arms it may be possible.

On 940 without the Regina pump there are two pumps one a low volume pump in the tank attached to the fuel sender monster and the other is under the driver's side of the car mounted with a fule filter on a removable plate.

The pump in the tank can be removed by popping he plate in the trunk and disconnecting the hoses and wires for the pump and sender unit. It needs to be twisted out because 1. the access plate is too small and 2. the design is unnecessarily complex. Replacement is much more difficult because the sender, tank filler assembly can come apart and drop into the tank making it necessary to start over. This is a bad design all around.

The under car pump can be removed easily by disconnection the fuel feed line and clamping it to prevent siphoning, unbolting the fuel filter banjo fitting that runs to the fuel rail on the engine, and removing the two bolts and one nut that hold the bracket to the frame. The electrical connectors are push on pull off type. The pump is a proprietary design and it can be a pain to modify an after market pump to match up to the banjo, fuel input and electrical connectors all of which are proprietary. This is another bad design.

Most problems can be solved by checking the fuel pump relay before you start.

How do you get the check engine light codes on a Volvo 940?

1. Purchase an OBD II code reader machine from an auto parts store.

2. Or the easier, cheaper way: take your vehicle to Aamco Transmissions or Midas shop and they will check it for free!

If the Volvo is 1995 or newer, they can pull the codes very easily.

If it's 1994 or older, they can pull the codes but it takes more labor.

Whichever shop you go to may charge you if your Volvo is 1994 or older. But you can always try to negotiate the price down and see if they'll go for it.

The Aamco I took my '94 to wanted $98. I said forget it, but since they took so long with my car they through in the test free.

How do you clear the check engine light on a Volvo 940?

to clear a "check engine" light on a Volvo 940:

First you have to plug the test cable into socket 2 for fuel injection or 6 for ignition codes. The codes are read as groups of red led flashes.

1)turn the ignition switch to "run" position, press the diagnostic button for 5-8 seconds, then release. the LED would come on.

2)press the diagnostic button for over 5 seconds until the LED goes off.

3)press the diagnostic button for 1-3 seconds, if the LED shows "1 1 1" , that means the DTC have been cleared.

How do you reset radio 850 Volvo?

If the word "code" appears, you need to punch in the 4-digit code that's probably on a card in the brown plastic container with your owner's manual in your glove box. If it's missing, call any Volvo dealer service department and ask for the radio code. They'll ask you for the VIN number of the car which is at the bottom of your windshield. Then they should be able to look it up. Once you have the code, just punch it into your radio to unlock it. You need to do this every time you remove or kill your battery.-Ricardo Furioso

Where is the indicator flasher unit on a Volvo V 40?

I am in Australia so it is right hand drive but the flasher unit is located behind the bonnet latch on the far right hand side of the vehicle. Might be left for you but you have to remove a plastic cover under the steering wheel. Then the flasher is located at the top of a fuse box under the dash. you would have to lay on the floor of the vehicle to be able to see it. Take a torch, it's a bit dark.

Why would the brake lights on a 1994 Volvo 940 wagon stop working when the bulbs and brake pedal actuation switch are OK and there is no bulb failure warning light on the instrument panel?

The fault will be in the wiring but could be anywhere from the fuse board onwards. The bulb failure light system works by comparing to indentical systems, in this case the right & left brake lights. If the electrical current flowing to each build is significantly different the waring light comes on , ie one light is working and the other is not. If problem affects both lights this will not trigger the warning as the current to both lights is the same, zero.

Check the fuse, the wiring between the fuse board, actuation switch and bulb failure unit and bulb failure unit its self. The build failure unit is actually a set of detectors in one unit so it is possible that the brake circuit part has a fault while the rest continues to work normally.

Another Idea: I fixed that problem by removing the orange colored sensor (from the relay box) to diagnose it. I took it apart (probably needlessly) but realized that the pins had invisible non-conductive corrosion on them so I sanded the pins. Then the brakes work. So just sand the pins and replace the sensor. No need to disassemble as I did.

You have a '92 940 gl with a radio that says OFF and doesn't respond to any commands to turn on Is this some security function the display said cod before it stoped working or broken?

When I had work done on my engine this happened to me. Call the dealer with your VIN number and they will give you a code to key in using the radio presets. === More Info=== You have to enter the correct code within 3 trys or you get locked out even more. Once it says OFF, you have to leave it turned on for about 1 1/2 hours. Then it says cod again and you get 3 more trys. The instructions are in the owners manual. If the radio is not the original, you have to pull it out and get the sertial number for the dealer to research the code.

Where can I find the exact location of fusible links on a 1994 Volvo 940 Connected jumper cables backwards Radio stopped working?


940s have fuses in the tray behind the ash tray. On a US 94 940 #26 is the Radio & Amp and #5 is the antenna Did the radio display read off or code? If so you simply need to enter the code. However some radios have a diode across the power input to prevent damage. That diode may have blown and need replacement. I know of no fuse links (wires that melt) on Volvo 940s.
