Power System Urgent

Post by shaneb » Tue Jul 16, 2019 10:39 am

We get the red power system urgent alarm when we start the car but it goes away quickly after we start driving. Does this indicate battery rather than alternator?
If it were the alternator it would be more likely to happen during driving, correct?

Thanks and sorry to make another post about this issue...

FYI 2008 XC90 V8 battery less than 2 years old.

Thank you. There were so many posts related to this it was becoming difficult to sort out.
I did my VC Gaskets this year, the engine was filthy with leaking oil.....so thats probably the cause...:(.
After the VC i am not sure i have it in me to DIY this one.
