Steve has been working on our 1980 Volvo 245GL. He noticed that, intermittently, the dash lights were not coming on, and the battery was not charging. He found poor connections on the voltage stabiliser and alternator controller that he cleaned up.

The rear fog light wire was broken near the tailgate hinge so this has had a new wire soldered in.

Steve also found that the overdrive was not working. It turned out that the switch in the gear lever was not connected and the connection in the connector block to the loom was poor. He reconnected the switch and replaced the loom connector too.
