Okay, I've been around the block a few times but I just had the strangest thing happen! I had to take my wife home from work, but needed to come back to the office for some more work. Car (97 850 R) started and ran fine on the way home (2 miles). Went in the house, got a cold drink, came out to start the car and... Cr.. Nothing. The computer display showed funky symbols (even after turning off the key). Tried again... nothing. Horn just goes click.. It's as if the battery gave its all for one last crank and now it's totally dead. <P>Isn't that weird? It is a stock Volvo battery though, and it's been hotter than the pits of hell here in Austin for several weeks (100+ degrees). I guess the heat got to it. At least I hope that's all it is....<P>

No big surprise to me - my first battery went dead at 20K in my 97R. So far no problems with the second one at 38K.
