My in-laws (orig owners) gave my daughter their old '96 850 to commute to school with. When moving adjusting the driver's seat (electrical), the alarm is sometimes activated. That has progressed to the dash lights sometimes going out, or the car is completely dead (as if the battery is disconnected).

I believe it is related to a short in the wiring harness that runs under the seat.

I just found out that in 2003 a recall (#112) was issued for a replacement of the harness. I don't know if it was address back then. It's now 10 years later. Any chance Volvo will still honor the recall?

Just call them and see what they reply but in my opinion you should fix this electrical problem otherwise it will blow up all the wiring circuit. Do not consider a simple matter it could be a big issue.
