    Hi Pierce, just wanted to say thanks for your post on here a few years ago about a power window issue, connecting 2 of the wires directly to the battery got me out of trouble! I wondered if you could help me out, if so see below, i'll owe you one!

    Got a '95 940, the passenger window goes down but not up, I have determined it's not a switch issue by swapping all the switches around. As mentioned a power source directly on pins 1 and 2 cause the window to go up and down no problem. What would you say the issue is here? Hope i'm not being too stupid

    Thanks again!

    Pierce, you appear to be extremely knowledgeable. Maybe you can help me out.

    My tachometer stopped working but the car runs well. What's your opinion? 1990 740 turbo.

    Also, I am going to replace the in tank fuel pump. Is it worth the extra cost to get OEM?

    Thanks. Doug

    HI Pierce, I just installed a Cruise control kit for my '93 Volvo 240, everything went well in the install, but when I tried it, it didn't work, upon checking the PDF, well and behold, I need to connect a 3 pin connector to the Pump in the engine compartment, it says I can find it under the suspension tower, I tried to locate the wire but cannot find it. I can see some harness that goes inside the tower but cannot be pulled to check if there is a 3 pin connector inside, can you please help me locate or guide me where to look for it, Thanks Gil

    Pierce, Please help. You are the master! I have a fuel pump problem i think. Driving on highway it just stalled. Turned on the ignition to accessory position, no pump sound. Checked the LH Relay it clicks on when the key is turned and clicks again when the key is turned off. Replaced in line pump, still no sound. I'm thinking of replacing the Primary intank pump. But would that cause neither pump to click on?

    Hi Pierce, I fried the speedometer in my 1988 240DL by connecting the tach wire to it. What are my options?
    Thanks, Dave Bacchi

    Hello pierce, I just joined. I was reading your post on the 940 turbo with no spark at the coil. I noticed you referenced the red and white wire and the blue wire on the coil. I tested the red and white wire and have continuity. I tried the same test with the blue wire and no continuity, but when I had my tester in the coil amp plug and touched the body by accident my tester sounded off. Is the blue wire a ground? If I unplug the blue wire from the coil and touch the body nothing happens. please help. Thank you

    Hi Pierce, I just joined because you have the best info. I'm in the midst of fixing up my 1989 Volvo 740GL and I'm on the fuel system. I found the great thread that talks about both pumps, fuel relay, etc. My question is, can the main pump (which is running) and the in-tank pump (which I think is not running) be effected separately by the fuel relay? does the fuel relay allow one to run and not the other? Or do you think the in-tank pump is just bad. Car starts ok, best when cold. Main pump gets louder when tank is low. Will replacing just the relay get both working? I think I need to replace the i-tank pump. Can you explain how to access and remove the in-tank pump the proper way? I have a new main pump coming anyway as that's an easy replacement, but as you know, the in-tank will be a bit more work. I don't want to kill the new main pump if the in-tank is bad, thoughts?
    Thank you for all your amazing help on this site.

    Pierce I was hoping you could point me in the right direction, I can't find any good instructions on the replacement/cleaning of the crankshaft ventilation system. You were right it is definitely clogged and the reason for my leaking oil
