1993 Volvo 940 Question: Alternator belt?

 

Question

Hi Guys,

Sorry if I've typed this twice - I think it got deleted when I signed in.
My battery, brake, and bulb lights went on suddenly while driving yesterday. I've heard squealing but it has been very hot and rainy here. I've checked all fluids etc and car starts and runs the same. New battery and brakes in January.

I'm about to go look some more - did I perhaps have an alternator belt break?! I'm a novice so any help will be appreciated. I have a good mechanic but I am about 40 miles out of town and will take it somewhere closer if that is safer for me and for the car.

Thanks so much!

    Definitely sounds like a loose or broken alternator belt. This reply is a bit late though, sorry. Did it get addressed already?
