Customer Question
My battery died so...

My battery died so I had triple a come snd jump start it. Now a few of my electronics are not working such as car seats I cannot adjust them. Also the gage which shows my gas level. I can't see it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

I need to leave on 45 minutes since battery was so low. Car sounds exactly same. I haven t driven it in 5 days. That's why battery died or we left something in like a light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Volvo?

2010 suv. XC60

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XC60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing

alot of times after a low battery issues some of the computers could not reboot correctly

after the battery is charged disconnect both battery cables for 5 minutes then touch the 2 cables together for 1 minute then reconnect both to the battery

that should usually reset the computers and everything should work
