Having problems with your 1987 Volvo 240 ?

Just replaced the alternator, now my battery light, brake light, and brake failure lights are on and I can't get them to go off.

Answers :


It sounds like you have left off the small earth lead or you have contacted some wires somewhere. go over the wiring again. what is quite common is a wire getting jammed between the altenator and the brace that holds it. most likely though it will be the small thin wire to the back of the alt, take a look at that first. also it could be a duff alt, check the main battery leads and earth wire to the gearbox also.

Hope this helps
