Relay on Battery Charge

Postby shelly4278 » 23 Nov 2011, 18:12

Hi I have a 2005 S40 I am having problems with my Battery not keeping its charge. My alteranator is fine. Im thinking it could be a relay. Are Relays universal. Do I need to buy a special volvo Relay or just buy one from a automotive store. How much would this be to fix.

How old is the battery? How do you know the alternator is fine?
