Question about Volvo Cars & Trucks
I have read that to disconnect the battery is a bad thing to do as it will mess with the electronics.....If I can disconnect...what is the procedure? Regards, Patrick.
The battery will eventually lose charge over a few months - depending on it's age and condition.
If you can get someone to turn it over once a week or so, that would be a better idea.
Even if the battery is removed, it is likely to have lost its charge by the time you come back to refit it. You will need either a jump start with cables, a booster pack or a battery charger.
Just be aware that an older battery may need replaced if left disconnected for a few months. If your battery is more than three years old, remove it but buy a new battery when you come to use the car again.
It's true that no battery might cause the alarm system to need resetting. Have a word with a local mechanic for advice. They are always knowledgeable and far less expensive than a dealer.
