Re: 1999 s70 battery drain

Hi-gh, Well, the battery drain is still intermittent on my 2000 volvo xc70. Although I have not been able to duplicate the current draw, and in turn remove fuse 10 (as some one suggested) to see if that circuit is related, the problem does seem to be fuse 6 : "Central locking". When fuse 6 is in, it...

Re: 1999 s70 battery drain

Hi Capt. Well, very, very interesting. I'll buy it - your free logic - not more costly actuators. Of course a new starter motor was a non-starter. I have 3 cars, and the 2 of us at home don't drive much at all. That means the Volvo sits idle, a lot. For the past several months I have had to start/id...

Re: 1999 s70 battery drain

Hi Rick, Yes, Fuse 6 from the 2 x 18 bank fuse box under the hood. There's another fuse box next to it with some relays & 50 & 60 Amp fuses, and around 5 of 25/20 Amp fuses. Interesting, I wasn't aware of there being more fuses under the dash. So the next time there's a healthy draw from fuse 6, fir...

Re: 1999 s70 battery drain

Hey Captain, Very funny. As a kid I used to bolt out of the house the moment my older sister started warming up her vocal chords. You wont be alone over Thanksgiving... my 2 teenage sons will be back from college. I'm really forced to deal with a battery drain issue. My wife refuses to drive this th...

Re: 1999 s70 battery drain

Hi Folks, Similar problem with my 2000 xc70. With a battery at 12.45 V, and the amp meter across the battery's negative stump & battery's ground terminal, fuse 6 is draining around 1.5 Amps. With fuse 6 pulled, the draw drops from 1.739 Amps to 0.296 Amps (296 mA), and with fuse 6 & fuse 15 removed ...
