Question about 1998 Volvo S90

1 Answer

Battery is new and doesn't seem to keep a charge.

I am able to jump start and allow to run for about 30 minutes, come back later in the day and will barely turn over. Next day battery is drained, will not start. The Generator light is not on.

2003 vectra 3.2 litre v6 not starting thought battery was flat as not driven for some time jump started it and drove fine.next day same thing had to jump start only drove for 5 min or so then the day after...


you need to check the alternator charge rate as this is the sort of problems associated with a low charge rate , unfourtunately you will need the engine running to do this so get a voltmeter ready for when you jump start the engine and read across battery terminals if reads below 13 volts the alternator needs replacing ,check that the drive belt is tensioned correctly as this would make alternator give low charge,also will need the OBD codes reading after all this going on , the engine doesnt need to be running for this just ignition on ,will give codes for sensor/switch which might be out because of the starting/running problems

Have you tried disconnecting the hot wire from the battery to the starter and cleaning both the connection from battery and on the starter. A toothbrush and water/baking soda?

The car was running fine one day then the next day it would not start. We tried jumping it thinking the battery might be dead and it still would niot start. The car has power until we take the jumper...


Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

Can a weak battery cause a BMW to misfire?


hello, if the vehicle ran with cable off one would ASUME alternator is ok! however, i bad diode in the aletnator would allow it to charge yet have a massive voltage draw as well, almost all of todays parts stores will do a free starting and charging test for you! ......ps a large voltage drop would rob your ignition of voltage causing your miss!.good luck, marty

Battery will not charge after jump starting. No power at all.


SOUNDS LIKE A BAD ALTERNATOR YOU SHOULD HAVE 14 VOLTS DC @ THE ALTERNATOR WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING. AND NOTHING OVER .05 VOLTS AC
