Customer Question
New battery good 12v...

New battery good 12v. Power at starter and alternator. (Via 12v test light). No interior light, no power with ignition on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

No power except with test light at alternator and starter only all fuses no light on contacts

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

Consistent in that there is no power anywhere. Is there a disable link or main fuse other than fuse box under hood on ds or side of dash on ds?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Volvo?

96 960

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 960 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Sat for 3 years with no battery. New battery installed yesterday. No interior lights, or dash lights. Like connection ends after alternator

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

How much $ for help?
