Volvo Tech Tip: Replacing the Fuel Pump Connector

Volvo Tech Tip: Replacing the Fuel Pump Connector

Identifix recommends technicians use the following procedure to replace the fuel pump connector on 1993 and newer Volvo 850, S70, V70 and C70 models.

Use the following procedure to replace the fuel pump connector on 1993 and newer Volvo 850, S70, V70 and C70 models.

Service Procedure:

  1. For five-door vehicles, remove the four screws from the floor hatch, pull the hatch backward and lift it out. For four-door vehicles, remove the floor mat, loosen the right panel at the front edge and fold it away.
  2. For five-door vehicles, remove the connector from the bracket by pushing the lock down using a small screwdriver (1/8”- 5/32” wide), then push the connector toward the right side of the car. See Fig. 1. Separate the connector. For four-door vehicles, remove the connector from the holder by pushing the lock (1) outward using a small screwdriver (1/8”- 5/32” wide), and then pushing the connector (2) upward. See Fig. 2.
  3. Check that the wire terminals are centered in the connector socket insulators. Carefully wiggle the wires to make the terminals move. Replace the connector if the terminals can be moved farther in both directions than what Fig. 3 shows. Replace the connector and terminals if any terminal is bent.
  4. Check the corners in the slot of the connector to make sure they’re undamaged. Replace the connector and terminals if any slot or terminal is damaged.
  5. Cut the wire 10 mm (3/8”) from the connector.
  6. Strip the wires 5-6 mm (3/16-1/4”). It’s recommended to use stripping pliers that can be set for stripping distance and wire diameter.
  7. Insert the stripped ends into the butt-connector. Ensure that the color-coding matches before crimping. Note: Do not twist the wires.
  8. Use tool #951 2656 to crimp the wires. Check that the wires are firmly attached by carefully pulling on them.
  9. Before sealing the butt-connectors, protect the interior and other wiring from the heat. Carefully heat the connector until the shrink tube seals the connector ends. Warning: Use a hot air gun with the heat setting in low. Do not touch the surface after finishing work; the connector is hot.
  10. If the shrinkage is properly done, glue should be protruding from the ends of the shrink sleeve.
  11. Install the connector to the bracket.
  12. Start the engine and ensure engine operation.
  13. Reinstall the interior in reverse order.

EV Battery Charging: What You Need to Know

As EV owners begin to look for qualified service shops, a charger will be an advertising beacon at your shop.

Charging EV car

Some equipment you can’t live without, and it seems as if it’s always in use. What that equipment is seems to change over time, as the ebb and flow of automotive technology has a strange way of turning one-time profit centers into dust collectors.Think of all the equipment that is now just in that forgotten corner of the shop, such as the old R-12 machine and the brake lathe. Then, there’s the big old Sun Scope, and the rarely used wall-mount strut spring compressor. Equipment falls out of favor for many reasons, whether it be old technology or just a trend in service.You can just as easily remember all the new equipment you’ve bought over recent years, such as A/C machines, scan tools, TPMS tools and ADAS equipment. Just when you think you can’t possibly need something else, more technology comes along, and this time it’s thanks to the vehicles nobody can stop talking about. But love ‘em or hate ‘em, electric vehicles (EVs) are here to stay.They might not need gas, but they need “juice,” and you’re going to have to charge them, meaning you’re going to need a charger and a base knowledge of the factors surrounding EV charging.There are different levels of chargers, the understanding of which is of initial importance, and, in short, the higher the number, the more powerful the charger. Level 1 chargers are considered emergency chargers, and most EVs come with them. They operate off 110 volt alternating current (AC), and their downfall is they can take as much as 40 hours or longer to charge the battery on some of the latest EVs.Level 2 chargers are the minimum that an automotive service shop should have, but they are well suited for the job, and are quite simply the best choice for the majority of shops. Level 2 chargers operate off single phase 240 volt AC and are almost 10 times faster than a Level 1 charger. You may still have a charging time of two or three hours, but this is an acceptable amount of time.
