    I have a 1994 volvo 850 and a warning light on the dash has come on and won't go out. My manual is in the glovebox and that has a broken lock so I can't get to it

    The light is on the right side of the "oil" light and it looks a little like (o)

    Can anybody tell me what it is for

    handbrake mainly, but sometimes with low fluid or worn pads wired into
    it. Consult you manual ;)

  3. I can fix both of your problems. Lots of people have fixed the glove
    box problem. Here are some of their solutions:


    He opens the glove box by drilling a hole in the door and using a coat
    hanger to push the release open. Then he fixes it.


    He does it by prying the door slightly so he can break away the catch.
    Then he fixes it.


    He cuts the catch away and replaces it. Make sure you protect the door
    with duct tape.

    Now that you have opened your glove box, you can look up that warning
