Did you check the rotor. If cam seal is leaking into the cap it could be your problem. And obviously a crack in the cap or wires.

check out volvotips.com for some diagnostic procedures and a wiring diagram to see what's in play.

Do you think it might have gone bad or just check the connection

The real problem with the main fuel injection relay is the plug. If you look down into the plug you'll see whether all the connections are presented to the relay like they should be. Could the relay go bad? Sure. You'll figure that out.

You either get power on that circuit or you don't. if you don't, then you found the problem. Fixing it will be the easy enough. We don't fix things by random parts replacement.


I believe a bad cam sensor would set a code. The crank sensor may not if it just does nothing, but if you see RPM's on OBDII, then the crank sensor has to be working at least on some level.
