Volvo C70 Electrical problems from bad battery cable

(13 reports)

The battery B+ cable has problems with the terminal end necessitating replacement. Symptoms may include no start, cranks wont start, warning lights coming on and other odd electrical issues. The B+ cable end is located in the engine compartment fuse box near the drivers side shock tower.

Battered just randomly drains. Immobilizer happens. Dealership has diagnosed: 1. Bad battery (had to pay for a new one) 2. Software update needed for drop top 3. Alternator replaced 4. Key has to be re programmed 4. Money money money Just keeps happening and there is no ONE reason. Should be a recall and repaired free every time. -
If I do not drive the car for, say, three or more days, DEAD. After jumping and driving, usually cures the problem (if I drive every day). Yesterday, while driving at night, it went completely dead -- not even enough to turn on flashers. I was able to jump and get it home. -
Had not closed trunk completely and found battery dead 2days later. Tried to jump battery and it wouldn't take. Had car towed to dealership and was told the B+ cable was bad and had drained battery cells (battery was purchased June, 2012) and I would have to have both battery and B+cable replaced. Battery: $190.00. Cable: $165.00. -
dash lights abs,anti traction,light lights up , I guess due to faulty battery cable -
