My battery goes dead over night. I put a new battery in and still have the problem. Has anyone had this problem?

Re: 2001 S60 Battery drain down (garrity)

a friend owns a volvo only shop in berkeley cal. i was in visiting one day when a woman came in with a similar problem that no one found a solution to. his techs and i spent severl hours investigating when one guy found that the glove box door was mal adjusted and allowed the glove box light on. i drained a weak battery overnight, and took a few days to drain a new one.<p>just a thought. it was hard to tell because when you opened the box the light was on. but the tech noticed the door ajar and a very little light showing.<p>good luck, check all your lights and the battery/alternator connections.

Re: 2001 S60 Battery drain down (hastee)

I checked the glove box yesterday and noticed just before the glove box closed the light would go out. I also took the negative cable off the battery and put a jumper light between the cable and the battery. The light was on and I pulled every fuse one at a time I could find and the jumper light stayed on. Looks like I have no other choice but to take It to Volvo. The battery is new ( one day old )

Just dealt with something like that on my S80. Check the voltage regulator on the alternator. It's preventing the battery from being charged properly.

Volvo said the problem was a computer that was not shutting down. They reprogrammed the computer.
