I "solved" this by simply plugging the two wires to the two connectors, since the two connectors are only for the mirror heating I have simply assumed that it makes no difference which wire goes to which connector as the connectors aren't marked in any way.

When connecting a heating element it usually doesn't matter how it's connected so I simply decided to take my chances and so far there's no problem.

Is there a master fuse for the entire car and if so what is the location?


Not exactly.
It should have two or three fuseable link wires coming off the starter that power most of the fuses. The wires act like large fuses and can burn in two if overloaded.

Installed new starter solenoid, when battery is reconnected the starter spins. Disconnected key starter, thinking it was the problem but met negative results


You probably have wires crossing or you put the the wires on wrong. If there wasnt a problem with the ignition before the starter install there shouldnt be a problem now. Hope I helped

1989 volvo gl will not turn over. Turn key, dash


Turn you healights on. Turn the car on. If the headlights burn bright, the battery is good. If the engine does not turn over, the problem is probably the starter bendix. The starter bendix is a part of the starter. Have your starter checked at starter repair shop or where you buy your car parts. (You have to unhook the battery terminal from the negative battery post before taking off the starter.)
If the lights did not burn bright, and the engine doesn't turn over. You could have a bad connection. On the Volvo, it has a positive wire and 3 wires that attach to the positive battey post. I clean the battery post with a battery post brush. I clean the terminal ends of the other 3 wires that attach to the positive battery terminal. I use a wire brush to clean the 3 wire terminals. I spray the wire terminals with a electrical motor cleaner (or electrical cleaner) that I pick up at the automotive parts store. Don't spray it on the paint of the car. I put wires on one side of the positive battery terminal. I put a nut on the battery bolt. I tighten another bolt to it. I tighten it tight. I put the positve battery terminal on the positive battery post and tighten (don't tighten this to tight). The positve terminal should be tight enough not to move (but don't tighten it to tight.)
If you clean the positive battery post and negative battery post, you should have bright front headlights when the car is turned on. If not, you have a battery or alternator problem or both.

Replaced starter will attempt to start when battery is attached


Paul,

You have definately crossed the wires. We all do it at one time, or another.

Just call your local dealer, and tell them you tried, and made a mistake. Most dealers/garages will tell you how to fix the error without charge.

Small hint...when you deal with more then two obvious wires, use some tape to identify the wires...saves alot of going back and fixing tie.

Thanks for letting us at FixYa.com help...Happy New Year

Starter replacement on Volvo S90


There are usually 2 wires that connect to the starter. One is a large, thick wire, about the size of your little finger, It comes from the battery. The 2nd wire is a thinner wire, kind of like a soda straw. The large wire goes to the large terminal of the starter and the thinner wire goes on the smaller terminal. Be sure the ground terminal of the battery is disconnected before you try to hook up the starter.

Hope this helps Loringh PS please leave a ranking for me if appropriaye Thank you

next to the starter is an inline fuse on one of the small wires going to the starter. check this wire thoroughly; sometimes they burn out and the wire hang out of sight. if this wire is not connected correctly then it will never charge the battery.
