Similar issues used to plague many of the systems I used to support in my old career. It's amazing how many problems can be fixed by unplugging and reinstalling connections. Even good old Boeings play up after a few days laid up unpowered, and re-racking bits often sorts it.

And yes, the connections behind the right headlight are a good call.


This stuff has been discussed at length on the Volvo Amazon forum I follow from time time. It's bl**dy expensive but seems to be the dog's for sorting out corrosion problems with electrical connectors causing voltage drops.

It may be time to move on from my current home and the storage space will be lost, I would like to keep every thing but that can't happen, I have many more bits and bobs to sell.

I suspected something was up, good luck with selling it all. Typo, you'll have no trouble selling the UR Quattro you just got started.

You will get a kick out of this, had the car running for a good 20 minuets today, refilled radiator with coolant, stat opened up and ran Ok but above 1100rpm, so was messing about with that to get the rpm down and the 3mm allen key mixture screw and the car just died, so where do you start, turn the idle screw back up and un-turn the 3mm allen key mixture screw,
but the bugger won't fire up, make sure you have a spark, spark is ok, then the penny dropped, run out of fuel, well that should be an easy fix , maybe tomorrow.
