Volvo F724

Post by Ripple »

Recently I bought a Volvo F7

Got it fairly cheap, Runs well

However it has had some home wiring done in the past and now i am unsure as to what most of the switches do :?
Hoping you guys might be able to give me a few hints (Judging from the location of the switches). I have given them all a flick at some point however most of them don't really seem to do much at all, i can hear the relay flick over on a few.

Ive put question marks on the ones im not sure about

Picture 1
Large Black Handle - splitter?
Spot Lights? (dont work)
"on / off toggle switch" - ?
House Switch - ?
Orange Switch - ?

Image

Picture 2
Red switch - Engine off switch
Black switch - ?

Image

Picture 3
Red Switch - ?
Blue Switch - Highbeems
Green Switch - Headlights

Image

Picture 4
orange switch - ?
black push button - Starter

Image

Picture 5
Because everyone wants to see the outside :)

I would suggest getting a factory Wiring diagram, or diagrams on a lot of new stuff. The amount of Wiring is maddening on modern stuff. Then start chasing the color codes to see what they go to. A Test Light and Multi Meter will be very helpful. Dandy Dave!

Hi,

Where are you from? Down under I think?

Photo 1:
handle is splitter
orange one should be diff lock or fog lights
The house switch may be a replacement for the horn switch to go from the standard one to the roof mounted ones.

picture 2
One for stopping, other one for throttle control

picture 3
on ours was high beam on a lever below the steering wheel. the green one usually is for lighting. I remember another green one for ligthing in the loading area.

picture 4
no idea. Ours started on the ignition key.

Maybe you can get more infos here: http://www.oldaussievolvos.com/

please post more pics.

I think the blue one is for the extra high beams

Any guesses what the stalk on the right hand side of the steering wheel does? (it seems to let air out somewhere)
