SOURCE: 1999 Volvo S80 will not hold a charge

Tricky ... Was the alternator replaced with a 2nd hand one or a new one?

A defective alternator can allow the battery to discharge within a few minutes (the diodes in the rear of the alternator can burn out and cause the problem. The diode pack can be replaced). When this happens recharging the battery only replaces the power in the battery - which drains straight back to earth via the alternator, flattening the battery again - often within a couple of minutes or less.

Does the battery lose its charge when the car is standing or just when the engine is fired up?
If the battery loses its charge overnight, try disconnecting the wiring from the rear of the alternator (also look at the electrical connector that fits into the back of the alternator - look for melting/burning marks which suggest something may be amiss inside the alternator).

Let the car stand overnight with the alternator wires disconnected. Will it start up ok and drive (with the alternator wires still disconnected) the next morning?

You could also try just disconnecting the alternator wires, firing up the car and then driving it -
If the car drives ok without dying out and gets further down the street than it usually does, then it probably is the alternator at fault. The car should drive until the battery drains and has insufficient power to trigger the ignition. You certainly would get further down the street with a charged battery and disconnected alternator than you currently do.

It does sound as though you've had an alternator fault to begin with. If it has been replaced with a 2nd hand unit that unit may also be faulty. Rather than replace parts in desperation, visit an auto electrician's - within a few minutes they will be able to test the battery/alternator output and also identify where the lost current is going. It will be cheaper in the long run to have an auto electrician look at the charging system. It only takes a few minutes.

SOURCE: 2002 s80 volvo-battery has been charged car will not start

By died out of the blue, do you mean that it stopped running? Or did it just not start?

If it didn't start try wiggling the small spade connector on the starter itself. The starter is on the front of the engine under the intake manifold. you can see the two large battery wires from the top, but just behind them is a small spade connector that you can feel with your hand. This supplies the start signal to the starter. Wiggle the wire and try to start the car (make sure you don't have anything metal on your arm or hand when you do).

If the car starts remove the connector and gently squeeze the connector to a more closed position since they sometimes get loose and loose contact.

If the car still doesn't start check this wire with a test light while someone holds the key in the start position. While in the start position you should have voltage at this wire.

If you don't have voltage you have an electrical problem.
If you do have voltage then you may have a bad starter.

If the car just stopped running while you were driving it then I would take it to a reputable shop for diagnosis.

Hope this helps.

Weell it sounds like you have the days old problem Pepole dont know how to look after there cars.
The muck you still have in the engine isent doing it any good and so you have to get rid of it all, as its in the engine block and is got to go ,,so drain a little of water out and put in 1/2 a cup of washing up liquid in the radiator and start the engine and let it get hot and take the reves up to 1000 rpm now and then to keep the water going around the system, after about 1/4 hr turn off,,stand for 10 minutes ,,and then remove the cap slowly and then take off the Bottom hose and let all water out also take off Top hose at the engine end and put the house water hose in the top and turn it on till all water comes out clean. Then put hose up into the bottom hose and do the same again ,and the same in top again.Now with a clean engine you can do the same to the new Radiator and wash out all gunk .then check the thermostat and make sure its 100% (any doubt through it out) and take note how it comes out so you can fit a new one the same way,
Now refit both hoses and fill with coolant or antifreeze and TURN on the heater to hot before starting as you also have to get out the air from heater when it was drained and you will trap the air which might cause you code problems..
But now try service light reset
1,,Turn Ignition to Number 1position.
2,,Press and hold "day counter"reset button and turn
ignition to II(second) position,hold down for about 12 seconds.
3,,Afterservice light flashes,release button,there should be 2 beeps confirming reset was successful.
Let me know how you get on .. Ron

Where is the fuse for the low beam headlights?


There are 3 fuse boxes in a Volvo S80.

The fuses for the low beam headlights could be in either 3.

Refer to the website below, where it shows a 2012 Volvo S80, which should be similar to the 2008 model for dismantling the fuse box.

Battery drains on 1996 volvo 850


Check that your rear interior lights shut off. Other than that disconnect the + Battery cable and put a voltage meter between the two. Pull all of your Fuses and replace one at a time checking to see if the voltage changes, this will show you where your problem is.

2002 s80 The interior lights on the doors will not go off killing the battery. Just bought car used. What should i do? Thx Elizabeth


For now you can remove the appropriate fuse for the lights. Or unhook the negative cable on battery at night zo it wont drain your battery. But there maybe a short in your wires somewhere that you'll need to have checked out.

Neither turn signals work on 1999 volvo s80


I had a similar problem on my S80 1999 2.9 . It turned out to be the SMS multifunction module in the steering column that had gone bad. I eventually had to have it replaced plus a software reload. It was expensive. Suggestions that did not work were to disconnect the battery, charge the battery, reload software . It was only after the unit was changed that the software was loaded at a cost
