Having An Electrical Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I just got my volvo, with 155k, for $2500. Has a few problems. The primary one being a charging problem. When the engine is under load, and the gas pedal is pressed, the headlights come up very bright and the internal lights dim. We plugged a volt meter into the cigarette lighter, and when the car was reving under load, the readings got as high as 18.9 volts. Additionally, the battery was giving off a sulfurous smell, and the car was hard to start this morning. Any ideas?

Most likely your alternator get it fixed fast because your battery is overcharging and its over heating. Could blow up or start a fire. Also the fumes are coming out of it and this is extremely bad for your health.
