Hello, and thank you in advance.

Linked is a :30 video of an issue I'm having with my S40.
Three times in the past 4 months I have been having an issue where after I've been driving (at least 10 miles) and I pull into a parking spot or garage I'm having this crazy electrical issue (i think). Or is it something with the power steering?
The only parallel I can make is that I make a hard over turn to pull into spot, this issue occurs.

Car never stalls, and the problem does seem to rectify itself it i take it back out on the road. It's totally intermittent.

Please have a look.

F-

Looks like an Alternator overcharging. I had a BMW 7 Series today that did the exact same thing while running and the alternator was charging at 18v. Best to check your charging voltage with a multimeter

my guess, and what i assume others would say is that its a battery issue.

I would agree, check battery & charging system. Looks like a high electrical load triggers your issue. Our PS is electric...

I took it over to my local shop. Alternator and battery check out ok. I'm embarrassed to say my neutral on the battery was a little loose.
Hoping this takes care of the issue.

Thanks to those that responded in assistance.
