  • Having trouble to connect the fuse box cables. thanks

  • Trying to find relay or fuses for exciter wire to alternator. I have to keep going under hood to start up the alternato . 3x today. My Volvo mechanic doesn’t know how to trace it either. 😳 Note: SRS light stays on when the alternator doesn’t kick on. It’s a 1993 940 (no turbo) 192369 miles on it. Thanks for any help.
