Question about 1988 Volvo 740
I'm driving along in my old 1988 Volvo 740 and the dashboard lights up - seatbelt warning, wipers, brakes, park brake, light out, and oil. The car is running fine, makes no noise, nothing out of the ordinary - just one lit up dashboard and a freaked out young lady behind the wheel. Ideas? It was a very cold Colorado morning and I had just used my wipers before that to clear some frost. Perhaps a minor electrical snafoo?
Thanks for any help!
My first thoughts are with the battery cables, or the alternator. You probably had the heater, wiper and maybe the lights on? That's a big load on the electrical system. Have the battery and charging system checked out! It's common on this model for the alternator brushes to wear out and the good thing is that they can be replaced separately of the alternator.
