    So my buddy & I were swapping the alternator on my 2016 s60 t5 premier last night and as we were getting the old one out, still connected, I was going to unhook the battery and right as I was getting it the lead wire came in contact with the ac hose and arced. Didn’t think too much of it...

  3. S60 (2001-2010)
    I've been looking into finding a replacement alternator for my S60 as we believe the issues its been having are caused by it and I've found a couple at likable prices but on their description, it lists Plug Clock Position and from what I understand its the orientation of the unit when mounting...

    I am experiencing an electrical outage on my 2013 Volvo XC90 3.2 FWD. As I was driving on the highway at around 55-60 mph my Volvo just went completely dead, wheel locked up and it was very hard to steer to the side of the road, hazards wouldn’t work , no turn signals, absolutely nothing. Just a...
  5. S40 & V50 (2005-2012)
    Hello! I changed my battery few months back, its working like a charm really. but my charging voltage goes up to around 14.8 after 20 or so seconds, then after a minute or two after that it drops back down to 13.5, and its annoying not only for lights not being as bright, but also the sound...
  6. S60 (2001-2010)
    I have the opportunity to buy a 140A Bosch AL0854X for a really good price because of a customer that backed out. Only issue is, it's made for 05+ cars with the ECU controlled voltage regulator... If I remove that ecu controlled voltage regulator and install my original 140A self regulating...
  7. P1800, 1800 & 1800ES (1959-1973)
    Hey All - I purchased a non-running 1968 1800S from a gentleman who blew the B18 engine and ran out of storage space. The car itself is in great shape minus the motor. I have a spare B20 engine that I am preparing to put in it. Long story short, based on the parts I could identify and find...
  8. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    When I started my car this morning after sitting out over night for a camping trip, I got the "Red Battery and Exclamation Point" warning on the dash. It apparently means battery not getting a charge from alternator?? Continued to drive it because I was an hour from my home, 10 miles down the...
  9. R Forum (2004-2007)
    I have a 2007 S60R M66 with 167k miles. Bought the car in March of 2021, enjoyed a fun summer, and had her parked for most of this winter because I don't have working AWD. Exactly a month after I last drove her, she started up nicely. A few seconds afterwards the warning "Power System Service...
  10. XC90 (2003 - 2014)
    Sorry for cross-posting; it's been some time since I participated in the forums (was much more active when I still had my 2001 V70XC - now just have a 2009 XC90 3.2) TLDR: Followed the 'standard' procedure to replace an old and failed alternator clutch pulley (remove intake manifold, etc.) only...
  11. 240, 242, 244 & 245 (1974-1993)
    Hi everyone, Are there any stores that sell an 80 AMP alternator for my 1992 244 sedan or do I have to order online? Bought one from FCP Euro this week. Two days later they told me it was backordered with no eta. Bought another one that day from Advance Auto and it does not work out of the box...
  12. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    Immediate noise when torqued up. Charging Failure Urgent Service Required notice. Battery has been replaced. Not sure if it threw a belt, if alternator seized or something more catastrophic. Will update this thread when I learn more but would enjoy any thoughts for those of you that may...

    Hello everyone I am new to the forum I purchased a 2013 Volvo S 60 T5 a couple years ago and I believe the alternator is going to need changed here sooner than later! Is there any aftermarket alternators any of y’all would recommend or should I just try to find a factory alternator? Thanks for...
  14. R Forum (2004-2007)
    Really looking for some help, knowledge, or even someone who might even be willing to meet up in portland, OR (socially distanced) with this one if possible. I recently drove my 2004 V70R in the snow for a few days and due to a bot more tire spinning than the cars seen. A "high Voltage stop...
