Seats on fire issue

    Don Weaver sent me these photos of a 1987 780 he has that had the dreaded “seat on fire” problem. I know back in the day, Volvo had issued a recall on the seats, which I know was done on my 1991. I’m wondering if there is a way to confirm the upgraded wiring was installed, or at what point did Volvo fix the issue from the factory, if they did at all during production, which I doubt since my late model 1991 (Nov 90 production date, with last production on Dec 7 1990) would suggest no 780 had it right from the factory. Thoughts?

    Is it just the passenger seat that has this issue?

    Is it the heating wiring or some other wiring that causes this?
