Yesterday afternoon when I came in from work my wife told me that her 2002 Volvo was showing that the battery was not charging. She took me for a test drive and on a short drive the ABS failure light came on, the anti-skid light came on the car started loosing all power and died. When we tried to restart it the battery only made a clicking sound as if the battery was almost dead. I am thinking it is either the battery or the alternator. We had to tow it home and I took the battery out. She took it to Auto Zone today. They told her it was showing 12.7 volts and should start the car but it wasn't doing anything.
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake
system warning light on, too?
Customer: Just the ABS Light, the car completely lost power and died.
JA: What is the model of your '02 Volvo?
JA: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well I work all day so I haven't done anything other than have her take the battery and have it tested.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything. The ABS light and the anti-skid light were all that had came on when it started losing power and died. After that the battery only made a clicking sound.
