Volvo Coupes/Sedans/Wagons 1970-1989 Repair Guide

Turn Signal Flasher/Relay



See Figures 1 and 2

The flasher unit on 100 series and P1800 series is located behind the instrument cluster. It simply unplugs from its mount and is replaced easily.

On all subsequent models--200 and 700 Series--the flasher or relay is located behind the center console. The 200 Series cars use a single unit which is located to the left and below the heater controls panel. Removal of various console sidepanels may be necessary for access.
