Question about 1987 Volvo 740
After charging the battery and using the lights at night, the car won't crank in the morning.
Hi it is possible that you Alternator is faulty,if you have access to a VoltMeter ,check the battery voltage in the morning before you try to start it you should have around 12.7 volts for a charged battery if not fully charge your battery again and check the voltage with your car running you should have around 14 volts with the engine reving at 1500 revs.ifyou get around 12 volts then your lights are taking more power from the battery than the Alternator can replace.You could also get your local garage to Drop Test your battery to see if any of the Cells are faulty
