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.

How do you tell if it needs charged or not?


Hi Kelly, A fully charged battery is 12.4 to 12.6. and when the motors running it's 14.3 to 14.6... Three reasons your battery is flat (isn't charging), You have a faulty battery, A power drain or you have a faulty alternator... Clean your battery terminals and If you don't have a multimeter then Try jump starting your flat battery and driving your car for at least ten minutes then turned the motor off and try starting it WITHOUT jump start, If the battery's still flat then it's the battery, If your car starts straight away but won't start the next day then you have a power drain... If you jump start your flat battery and go for a ten minute drive but during that drive the motor dies without turning off the key then it's the alternator....
A mechanic or an auto electrician can usually test Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

Kia sedona battery draining


The battery may be draining due to a software issue. The dealer can reprogram the system for a known defect which allows some systems to remain powered when the vehicle is off. 20 minute warranty fix at the dealer.

I was letting the engine run to charge battery after a a jump start when smoke and steam were pouring out. also noticed water puddle under car


You have overheated the engine, check the engine cooling fan operation there is a problem I suspect.

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.
