If an electrical component fails to function, it is likely that a fuse has blown due to a temporary circuit overload.
The fuse boxes are located in the engine compartment (see page 94) and in the passenger compartment (see page 95).
A label on the inside of each cover indicates the amperage and
the electrical components that are connected to each fuse.
Defective fuse Intact fuse
The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it. Pull the fuse straight out. From the side, examine the curved metal wire to see if it is broken. If so, put in a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse). Spare fuses are stored in the fuse box cover. If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system tested at a Volvo retailer. If you find it difficult to remove a fuse, you will find a special fuse tool clipped in the fuse box.
