Question about Volvo 240
The best way to check a battery is to put it on charge (10-15 amps overnight) and then check it with a hydrometer.
The hydrometer measures the specific gravity of the Battery which is an indication of the amount of acid in the liquid.
Batteries are a limited life item. If the hydrometer reading is low (after an overnight charge) this means the battery needs to be replaced.You can get a hydrometer at any walmart or auto parts store, They are only about $5.
