Question about Volvo 760
to start with, check if there is output voltage from the alternator it self ( at the back of the alternator ) using a voltmetre
Chould give 14.0 Volt, if is OK, that means you have a broken wire between the alternator and the battery, this is common.

Testimonial: "Hi, I guess I didn't specify where I checked with the meter but I did check on the back of all of the alternators and they all read zero, I checked on the big post should the smaller post just below have voltage also?, Thanks Again, Bill"
Yes, your alternator should be charging at a minimum of 1200 R.P.M. sometimes alternators don't work like they should, once I bought a brand new one and it didn't work like it was supposed to. I would try one more time. Let me know how it works. It sounds like the diode trio which turns AC into DC current is not working properly.
