Question about 1999 Volvo V70
Hello, my battery died while driving, the car stopped. I checked the voltage, it is only 11.0 - 11.5 volts even with the engine running. Belt is OK, I guess it is either the alternator or the voltage regulator. Fuses seem to be OK. Is there anything I should check before I take it to the shop? I mean any hidden fuses, relays, switches, connections, anything??? Ho can I tell if it is the voltage regulator or the alternator itself?
Had the same problem with an s80 this week- no warning lights nothing. was the regulator. when you have it fixed cancel all the trouble codes as when voltage is low everything registrs low signal input and makes the car go into get me home mode.
