Mine is a 1991 Station Wagon, 740. 140K miles. I had a no-start several
days ago but it has started OK since. I suspected the fuel pump relay so I
pulled it and put it back in (presumably cleaning the contacts in the
process). The car has been fine since then. But I am worried about certain
relays. In the front row, the K relay (central locking?) is too hot to
touch; the J relay (window?) is quite hot (but not as hot as K), and the
fuel pump relay is quite warm. In Brickboard I have seen two views; "Volvo
relays are always hot", the other "A hot relay is a bad relay".
Does anyone have any views on this (the others are are only very slightly
warm or only ambient temperature)?
