Volvo 850, Wagon
#502 of 505 '93 Volvo 940 wagon radio,dash stuff doesn't work

Drove my '93 Volvo 940 wagon into a parking garage at a hotel radio worked. Two days later when we left a few blocks down the road I noticed that the radio wasn't on, the phone charger outlet (like a lighter) doesn't work. Checked the fuses under ashtray they are all okay. However, the little amber security light on the radio seems to blink okay. I would love to get him noisy again. Thanks so much.

Dear all - i am the second owner of a 1995 volvo 850 Turbo wagon. My family and i live in new york city and we have used the car for the past five years. The odometer as stopped but i believe that the mileage is just under 200,000 miles.
My concern -several days ago my wife was involved in an accident resulting in considerable front end damage to the volvo.
in speaking to my body shop the cost of the parts (headlights, radiator , airbags etc. etc. is running about $2000)
in looking at craigslist, I see a number of 95 850 wagons for sale for around $1000 . question --will the parts of an 850 wagon be compatible with my 850 Turbo?
I also see a 94 volvo 850 turbo-would that be a better fit

Can someone tell me if we can bypass the airconditioning belt on the main air conditioner. It is frozen and it broke the mail belt.

Surely this has been answered by now. If not, it can be done. I bypassed mine for about 9 months while I weathered winter and a search for a good used compressor. I took some string, measured the length minus the A/C compressor, verified the length with a measuring tape then simply searched for one at my auto parts store. After the fact, I realized that there is probably one made for Volvos without A/C. Duh! When I got the used compressor installed, the shop threw the short belt away. I went back to claim it for what I sadly expect will be future use, again.
