Yes, I have worked for a Volvo/Mack dealer since the year 2000. What kind of issue are you having with your truck?

had 1 bad battery out of 4 replaced and put used inverter in old one was shot,used same battery leads hooked up tested microwave for 30 secs then tried to start truck, no power on anythingthis is a 60 series detriot with 3 pedal 10 speed autoshift acts like main fuse blew but i dont know which one it is . tested fuses on top of dash no power on anything
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 1 year ago

I would verify that all the battery connections are in their correct spot. If you had an issue with the invertor or battery shorting out it probably blew the fusible link. This is the fused ground wire that goes from the negative stud on the starter to the engine block. These are known to blow and will cause the cab to loose its ground or have a weak ground. There are also 2 pos fusible links that are known to break off on the pos side of the starter. These power the main cab pass thru connections.

just got your reply,so the main battery lead to starter has a fuse link in it.? been driving vnls for 17 yrs didnt know that.does volvo keep them in stock?changed lots of batteries,no sparking on this one,what could have blown fuse,inverter?
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 1 year ago

Yes. It goes from the ground stud on the starter to the engine block. Volvo always has them in stock they can get weak from overtime with low batteries, road drafts, vibrations, ect

everything worked fine till this,ran truck on and off fixin air leaks during the day. u think inverter may have problem? soon as i turned inverter on ran microwave.should i have let the inverter charge up first?
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 1 year ago

The only affect the inverter would have is if shorted out.

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it worked so i guess it not shorted out,?very strange, never had issue like this in 38 yrs wit big trucks. no sparking of any kind when hooked batteries uplet me get this straight, there are 2 pos. fuse links on starter and 1 fuse link on neg side of starter
Technician: Mike Mcmillan, Shop Foreman/Triage Tech replied 1 year ago

If there is no load demand there will be no draw to create a arc when hooking it up. If there is a weak ground on the chassis side this can have a slight effect on this as well. Yes on the connections.
