Forgive me if this has already been addressed. I’m new here and a complete dummy regarding cars.
My Volvo has 2 seemingly unfixable interactive problems.
Something drains the battery. It’s inconsistent. I used it until Wed at 6pm and by Thur at 9 am, it was completely dead (even the manual clock stopped). Today, same scenario (it sat evening until morning) - started fine. But after 72 hours, guaranteed dead. I’ve now tried 3 batteries. The Volvo dealer could not find the problem. And charged $100 for not finding it.
Problem 2 - the cold start injector thingy that’s broke. Means on a warm day it takes many cranks to start. On a cold day, 3 minutes or more of repeated cranking before it catches. The dealer said that he couldn’t find this $300 part.
This means if the battery isn’t 100%, it could die in cranking before the car catches. That’s why it took almost an hour 2 days ago of being connected to someone’s car before I could get a jump.
