Hi community,<P>I would like to know if anybody else owning an 850 has ever had the same problems with his battery.<P>I think a have the fifth battery now, though my car is not equipped with too much hitech stuff; even the alarm isn`t used very often.<BR>Problems seem to occurr mainly in the cold season, but I have not yet found out a real "proof". Or, maybe it has to do with the radio...

Since the first four were replaced under warranty and had to be Volvo brand, I will probably get an aftermarket one if my curent one craps out.

I would suggest the interstate or sears die-hard batteries. They are a bit costly but go for years.<P>Prospero

I don`t think it`s up tho the battery brand:<BR>In Germany Volvos come with Bosch batteries (under Volvo logo); besides my new ones were of different brands.<P>I think the leak s somewhere in the electricity.
