Exclamation Armored S80 - air conditioning, windows and door locks

Hi, I just saw yesterday a S80 (non-turbo) that I liked a lot. Price is good as well. Problems: Air conditioning, door locks and windows don't work. Since car is armored (ballistic safe against kalashnikov), I wonder cost of repair to make worth my while the purchase. Car is model year 1999. Anyone has an idea of the problem and its solution? Beware that since car is not original (because of armor) I might have some surprises while repairing. Thanks for help.

They all might be an easy problem to fix. If the car is pretty cheap I would buy it.

yeah these were optional overseas, i can get you guys a link with the original broshures when im not feeling lazy

EDIT: yup here they are armoured is in there http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/80brochures.shtml

as for the OP's question, any car that old will have problems, could be as easy as a fuse, or could be as hard as a cut wire somewhere in the door panels, you never know, should you buy it ? probably not, find another s80 they are old there should be plenty of them around
