HOW TO USE SYSTEM WIRING DIAGRAMS
1995 Volvo 850
GENERAL INFORMATION
Using Wiring Diagrams
All Models
INTRODUCTION
This CD obtains wiring diagrams and technical service
bulletins, containing wiring diagram changes from the domestic and
import manufacturers. These are checked for accuracy and are all
redrawn into a consistent format for easy use.
In the past, when cars were simpler, diagrams were simpler.
All components were connected by wires and diagrams seldom exceeded 4
pages in length. Today, some wiring diagrams require more than 16
pages. It would be impractical to expect a service technician to trace
a wire from page 1 across every page to page 16.
Removing some of the wiring maze reduces eyestrain and time
wasted searching across several pages. Today the majority of
these
diagrams follow a much improved format, which permits space for
internal switch details.
Wiring diagrams are drawn in a "top-down" format. The
diagrams are drawn with the power source at the top of the diagram and
the ground point at the bottom of the diagram. Components locations
are identified on the wiring diagrams. Any wires that don’t connect
directly to a component are identified on the diagram to indicate
where they go.
