Custom replacement COIL REPAIR HARNESSES for
Volvo 960, S90, and V90 1992-98.

Why do coil harnesses need to be replaced in Volvo cars?
Years ago Volvo service technicians begain noticing severe problems with the main engine harnesses (near the coils) in 1992 and later Volvo 960, S90, and V90 models. These cars are equipped with the 6 cylinder 24 valve engine.  I began to get emails from these concerned technicians.
Volvo technicians were dismayed after discovering these problems and then finding that Volvo was demanding highly inflated prices for 960 main engine harnesses (up to $5,000 each). 

  This has become a COMMON PROBLEM, usually limited to the portion of the harness that goes to the 6 ignition coils under the top coil cover on the engine. 
This portion of the harness has a tendancy to malfunction.  The cause is due to prolonged exposure to the high engine temperatures under that coil cover.  The 2-pole plugs are literally falling apart after years of high heat
(see photos below).

When I first began hearing about this problem I began investigating a solution.  I had been been working with 240 and 740 harnesses for a lot of years, so I began looking at 960 models in salvage yards. I took several apart to see what was going on in the harnesses. It certainly appears there were many 960s that were sent to salvage yards because of this easy-to-fix issue.

  Here we have a couple salvage yard photos.  The first photo on the left is a 1993 960.  The second photo is a 1995.  The coil configuation and harness connections under the coil cover are identical in all models from 1992 through 1998

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK:
It took me forever to finally find time to install the ignition coil wiring harness I ordered for my 94 Volvo 960, which I did yesterday.  It fit great and I am totally pleased with the quality of the harness, especially the fact that the wire colors match the original wiring.  That made it a no brainer when splicing into the original connections.  Mine was in sad shape, broken plastic, pins starting to corrode, etc.  Yours was the perfect solution and I'm so glad you are still making parts to help keep these older Volvos on the road.  Totally pleased. Thanks.  If I could comment on your web site, I would.  T.M., Waynesboro, VA.



REPLACEMENT OPTIONS:
Until now, there very limited options for a Volvo 960, S90 or V90 owner with this problem: 
1.  Replace the complete engine harness. This harness is only available from a Volvo dealer at greatly inflated prices.  When I checked, I was quoted over $5,000 for the engine harness for a 1996 960 (Volvo PN 9128879). 
2.  Have someone make repairs using junk yard parts or parts you might get from Volvo.
3.  Send the car to the junk yard.  This actually happens a lot.

There is no reason to replace an entire engine harness if only the 7 wire coil branch is damaged due to heat.  So at the request of a number of Volvo technicians, I began having new portions of this coil harness made so anyone can make these repairs.


This is the new replacement Coil Repair Harness.
A new repair harness will solve this common coil connector problem
in any 960, S90 or V90 (1992-98).

This REPAIR HARNESS and INSTALLATION KIT will allow you to splice a new 6 COIL BRANCH into your existing main engine harness (only 7 wires need to be spliced) and it will replace the damaged section that goes to all 6 ignition coils.  This harness offers about 8 inches (20 cm) of extra wire length behind the cylinder head for splicing into your original engine harness.

1999-2006 Volvo
6 Cylinder Coil NEW Repair Harnesses

1999-2006 Volvo with 6 Cylinders.
Why do coil harnesses need to be replaced in Volvo cars?
  As these cars age, deterioration of the coil plugs under the top coil cover on these engines is becoming more common. 
The cause is due to prolonged exposure to the high engine temperatures under the coil cover.  The failure of these 4-pole plugs will cause poor running and OBD failure codes. Using this Coil Repair Harness will allow the rest of your engine harness to remain intact.

VVT Connector Harness Pigtails

You may re-use your old connector and wires, but you will need to remove the wires from your old coil harness bundle.

1999-2011 Volvo
5 Cylinder
New Replacement Coil Repair Harnesses

1999-2011 Volvo Turbo and Non-Turbo, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and XC90 series with 5 Cylinder Engines.

Why do coil harnesses need to be replaced in Volvo cars?
  As these cars age, deterioration of the coil plugs under the top coil cover on these engines is becoming more and more common. 
The cause is due to prolonged exposure to the high engine temperatures under the coil cover.  The failure of these 4-pole plugs will cause poor running and OBD failure codes. Using this Coil Repair Harness will allow the rest of your engine harness to remain intact.

                        harness.
This new REPAIR HARNESS and INSTALLATION KIT will allow you to splice a new 5 COIL BRANCH into your existing main engine harness (only 7 wires need to be spliced) and it will replace the damaged section that goes to all 5 ignition coils. This kit includes butt splices and heat-shrink tubing.
New original Volvo connectors are used in this harness.

NOTE ABOUT FITMENT YEAR RANGE
These harnesses were originally designed to fit 1999-2007 models with 5 cylinders. Now will now fit models through the 2011 model year. The below INSTALLATION GUIDE will explain how a later model installation is done. The fit is the same, however there are some wire color differences, so fitting to a 2008 to 2011 model requires only matching up some wire colors.
At this time, I cannot comment on 2012 and later models.  I have not yet located sufficient wiring diagrams for 2012 or later models.

FITTING THIS HARNESS TO THE 2004 to 2007 S60R or V70R
The coils in the R models were slightly different and used a slightly different connector.  The difference is small and it is a very simple task to modify the connectors supplies with this harness to correctly fit. I have included instructions in the below GUIDE to show how this modification is done. Have a look at the instructions for details. Please email me if you have questions.
