Volvo V50 Fuse box - replacing fuses

There are relay/fuse boxes located in the engine compartment and the passenger compartment. If an electrical component fails to function, this may be due to a blown fuse. The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it.

To do so:

  • Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult to remove, special fuse removal tools are located on the inside of the fuse box covers.
  • From the side, examine the curved metal wire in the fuse to see if it is intact.
  • If the wire is broken, insert a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse).

If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system inspected by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

The fuse box in the engine compartment has positions for 36 fuses.

  • Fuses 1–18 are relays/circuit breakers and should only be removed or replaced by an authorized Volvo service technician.
  • Fuses 19–36 may be changed at any time when necessary.

Several extra fuses and a fuse removal tool to assist in removing/replacing fuses can be found on the underside of the fuse box cover in the engine compartment.

Volvo V50 Fuse box - fuse box in the passenger compartment

The fuse box in the passenger compartment is located under the glove compartment.

To access the fuses:

  • Remove the upholstery covering the fuse box by first pressing in the center pins in the mounting clips approximately 0.5 in (1 cm) with a small screwdriver and then pulling the pins out.
  • Turn both retaining screws (2) counterclockwise until they release.
  • Fold down the fuse box (3) half way. Pull it toward the seat until it stops. Fold it down completely. The fuse box can be unhooked completely.
  • Replace the blown fuse.
  • Close the fuse box in reverse order.
  • Pull the center pins fully out of the mounting clips, secure the upholstery with the mounting clips and press the pins into the mounting clips again. The mounting clips then expand, holding the upholstery in position.

Why can’ relays not be replaced?

Which fuses are "live" 24/7 so I can fit a dash cam which will record bumps when I am away from the car please?
Thank you.

Trying to find which fuse is for the central locking. Not listed.

Which fuse controls the vehicle alarm. I think I have a fault with mine as it randomly goes off so would like to isolate it until I can get it fixed.

I can't start my Volvo v50 diesel.
Turn the ignition key all the way ,nothing.
No sounds from the starter or the solenoid nothing.
It's not the starter motor or solenoid.
There must be some corrosion somewhere.
As the problem started after a night of bad storms high winds driving rain.
