Fuses and relays Volvo S40 (VS; 1995 - 2004)

The first generation of Volvo's D-class sedan, the S40, was created in collaboration with Japan's Mitsubishi and shared a base with the Carisma, both cars being produced at the same NedCar plant in Holland. However, while sharing a common platform, the S40 has about 4,000 components out of 5,000 that differ. In this article we will understand in detail fuse box diagrams Volvo S40 (1st generation; codename VS) 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 years of manufacture.

Here you will find the locations and photos of the mounting blocks. Also, we will separately mark the fuses responsible for the cigarette lighter and the fuel pump.

In the passenger comparment

Here there are two units responsible for the protection of the vehicle's electrical circuits.
