I"ve been obtaining this red warning irradiate on my dash with the battery symbol lit up and the indigenous "POWER SYSTEM business URGENT" ~ above the message readout the past day. It"ll which for about 2 minutes, and also then disappear together if nothing ever before happened.

Has anyone seen this before and if so, what"s the problem?FYI, I have actually an HID kit installed _without_ the DRLs turned off (there"s no flickering worry though). Would this be the cause?
Re: Red "Power System business Urgent" warning top top dashboard through battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)It would typical that your battery is running low. Have your charging mechanism checked the end at a great shop or a dealership. This is not something you want to ignore. You could be stranded and also not be able to start your automobile or save it running.On an additional note, the HID kit most likely takes about 2 min to heat up and stop illustration power native the device to fee the capacitors to charge.

You might be stranded and also not be able to start your automobile or save it running.On one more note, the HID kit probably takes about 2 min to warmth up and also stop drawing power from the device to charge the capacitors come charge.

I had actually a skepticism that it was a low battery (I"ve left the lamp on for lengthy periods of time once I very first bought the car and didn"t realize that the lights stayed on in the center position), however figured Volvo would have actually had one more message that in reality said, "Low Battery, replace Soon" or other to the effect.You stated that the takes about 2 minutes for the HID kit to heat up and stop illustration power, however this only happens as soon as every time the automobile is started I"m assuming? ns ask since when mine "Power System organization Urgent" article comes on, it"ll come increase in the middle of my drive for 2 minutes, disappear, then come earlier later in the journey for a pair more minutes. Go the HID kit perform a 2 minute strength cycle once and a while throughout the drive?

I"ve seen said post pop up once the alternator"s voltage regulator died.

Man...if this is the case, it"ll it is in another part for my dealership to delivery in overnight. Hello again loaner S40.

Re: (skwirl)
skwirl, my shop said me once I was doing a custom install the an electric fan the the e-system has actually sensors on the that pilgrimage codes (maybe warning light?) once there is a attract or flux sensed in ~ the system. Guess the tradition lights can do it. Have no expertise yet seems this could be related.The opportunity of the battery or alternator going poor this quickly would seem odd also if the battery has been drained once or twice. Must bounce ago just fine.

Re: (Ride S40T)
Also keep in mind the alternator puts out much less voltage in ~ idle than as soon as you room driving. Therefore the attract at idle could be also much however traveling would certainly make it walk away. Still, have actually the charging system checked by the dealer. That should have actually a password no matter if the light turned off.

Re: Red "Power System organization Urgent" warning on dashboard v battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Dropped my car off at the dealership today. They seen the charging system and everything shows up to be working just fine. They experienced that I had an aftermarket HID kit however didn"t believe that it to be the cause of the problem.My organization advisor said me the the just thing that can trigger that blog post would be a negative alternator, but because the alternator test turned the end fine castle think the maybe just one that the diodes in the alternator has actually gone bad and is throwing up these warning signals. They"re going come overnight a new alternator and also replace that tomorrow. More to come tomorrow...
Re: (Dextrobrick)
My battery just died without giving any type of message on board.......be careful, so check your battery after 1 year.
Re: Red "Power System business Urgent" warning on dashboard through battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Sorry to carry out a dead thread, but this simply happened come my automobile today, really concerns me since my auto is out of warranty... Just thing i deserve to think of is washing my automobile last night and also the sound mechanism was top top fo about 30 minutes... Yet i started the car and it was fine, now i acquired the message... Yet the car starts generally with no delay, when i step on the gas i obtain a monster sound, prefer a humming sound... And also i gained a inspect engine with the code P0134 which reads: 02 sensor circuit no task detected (bank 1 sensor 1)anyone with any kind of advise??

Re: Red "Power System organization Urgent" warning on dashboard through battery icon. Trouble? (heico2.4i)
Battery shouldnt take it a intake in just a year, Id have actually it tested, and go native there. Following step would certainly be to have actually the alternator either load tested or just checked for diode ripple. Sounds prefer a couple of lately have actually been having actually this issue.The alternators space not cheap unfortunately but is worth replacing to stop future problems.

Assuming over there is no diode between the alternator and also the battery, the voltage you measure have the right to be one of two people from the alternator or the battery. The way I witnessed an autozone worker check it is to rev the engine while checking the voltage. Because that a good / functioning alternator, the voltage should boost when the engine revs. The toyota I witnessed the test on, has actually a direct link from the pedal to the engines by a steel cable, therefore by pulling the wire from the engine bay, it works the very same as stepping ~ above the pedals. I don"t think the is the exact same for our cars. So girlfriend would need to gain someone come rev the engine because that you while you inspect the voltage.
Re: (fone)
yeahh every this ingredient on ours cars space electronic. Yet if so anyways i would still gain both replaced, and were execute you have the capacitor installed, befor the below after the amp or befor the amp and also the sub? likewise if the battery is much less then a year old friend can get it replaced under warrenty, id say obtain a redtop optima battery there THE best.

Re: Red "Power System business Urgent" warning on dashboard v battery icon. Trouble? (heico2.4i)
If there"s a strange noise if revving then it"s the alternator, and if it"s a DENSO alternator climate it sure is the alternator
Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning top top dashbo ... (heico2.4i)
Standard alternator output need to be 13.7 or damn close to 14v"s. Short 12"s appears a small odd, thats trial and error output from most other volvos as Ive never replaced a S40 alt. To to compare to though...

Yuuup time to replace the alt... ~ above my method home from work this morning the message came increase again and also the dashboard started showin all these errors, service the transmission, ABS airbag light, strength steering walk on and off, the spin control coming on and off, the home windows were walk up and down yes, really slow, constantly losing power top top acceleration and also when i acquired home, i turned off the car and started the again a few times and it was kinda struggling to start, i guess ns will have actually to offer an arm and a foot to Deel Volvo in miami, fl ~ above monday...
