Asked by Sep 09, 2012 at 11:26 AM about the 1989 Volvo 240

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the engine turns over but no ignition. its making a noise behind the glove box that was never there before.  I know its not much to go on but it  might make sense to an expert. thanks

The noise is the fuel pump relay. Either the relay failed or the wired connections are bad. You can remove and take the replay apart and check the solder for a fault connection. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AtL_8ugdnE
