Took the LCM ignition relay out put it back in put new fuse in lights working turned ignition off and on lights still working. Turned tractor backup light fuse gone and again LH headlamp out. Put new fuse it's gone at ignition on. Turned ignition on and took rela for LCM out and put fuse in 17 lights working but if I turn the ignition off and then on lights won't work untill I put the relay back in if I put relay back in it blows the fuse for LCM. So long story short. If I first turn on ignition then lights on then pull the LCM relay out and change the fuse lights work but have to put the relay back in at each ignition cycle.

If the wiring was not checked leading to the LCM this needs done to see if any wiring faults are found.If an issue is found with any of the wiring this will need to be repaired.Most common for a fault like this here is usually faulty wiring needing repaired or replaced for this issue here.The wiring and fuse panel terminals as well as connector terminals will need checked for any issues needing repaired. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete

I was told by Volvo ignition switch is bad after they checked wirring. But after replacing ignition switch it still blows fuse. But this doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes it goes days without blowing or sometimes it blows in seconds

Any solution ?
Expert:  Pete replied 5 months ago.
I apologize for the delay as I did not see your reply until now. This sounds like shorted wiring leading from the ignition switch itself.I have seen in some cases where shorted wiring will cause an issue like this here and the wiring needs repaired or replaced.If they did not check the wiring from the switch at all this needs done to see if any faults are found with it needing repaired or replaced. Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here. Thanks Pete
