Fuses and central electrical units

Electrical functions and components are protected by a number of fuses in order to protect the car's electrical system from damage by short circuiting or overloading. The fuses are fitted in the car's various fuse boxes.


Never replace a fuse with a foreign object or a fuse of higher amperage. This may lead to damage to the electrical system and cause fire.

Contact an authorised Volvo workshop about replacing the fuses not described in the owner's manual.


Orange-coloured cables must only be handled by qualified personnel.


Several components in the car work with high-voltage current that could be dangerous in the event of incorrect intervention.

Do not touch anything that is not clearly described in the owner's manual for the car.

If an electrical component or function does not work, it may be because the component's fuse was overloaded, which must be changed. If the same fuse is overloaded repeatedly then there is a fault in the component. Volvo recommends contacting an authorised Volvo workshop for checking.
