Question about 1984 Volvo 240 Series
My 1984 volvo wont keep a charge
From your very brief description I can only guess a response?
First is the Battery o.k? next is there a glove box light or boot/trunk light stayng on? does the Radio turn off when ignition is off?
Check all areas for possible power drain, failing this I presume you have the B23 or B20 engine? your alternator Diode pack may be faulty leaving an open circuit when not in use.
You could try disconnecting the alternator to see if it sorts it.
Finally try using a Multi meter to see how much drain is being taken from battery when engine is not running.
Hope you sort it?
