1996 Volvo 850. No electrical power.
I have a 1996 Volvo 850. Currently; there is no electrical power at all. No interior lights, clock, radio and of course it will not crank. It is almost like there is no battery in the car. All the fuses are good. All battery cables are connected and tight. The battery is new and fully charged. I have even tried to jump start the car but again; there is no power at all. I thought maybe it was the ignition switch..but that should not affect things like the interior lights/clock should it? I am no mechanic and only know how to check the basic things in the owners manual. If anyone has any ideas; I would sure appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance.
Start at positive battery cable from battery and follow it all the way to the starter making sure some part of cable has not worn through touching a ground also check connections at starter making sure they are nice and tight.
Hi UGPE10. Exactly the same thing has happened to me, Did you ever find the problem if so i would appreciate it if you could tell me Cheers Gary
Same thing just happened to me. This morn, moved car for street sweeping. This afternoon, tried to move car, and it's completely dead . . . like there's no battery in the car. I'll try the first suggestion.
