Customer Question

Cat XC 90 ran fine all day. Let it sit for 2.5 hrs. Went out and turned the key; nothing happened, no lights or bells.
After getting a jump start, it runs but it has an an idle that revs up and down over and over again message says reduced engine performance. I had a 2hour drive tonight and decided to have it checked out by our mechanic.
It's a 2010 XC 90. What's wrong?

Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

I would say you have a battery fault.

Have youre mechanic do a drop test on the battery and check the charging rate.

Any fault with the battery or alternator then idle will be rough.
