Battery Maintenance
The battery in your vehicle is located under the floor of the cargo compartment.

Driving habits and conditions, climate, the number of starts, etc. all affect the service life and function of the battery. In order for your battery to perform satisfactorily, keep the following in mind:

  • Check the fluid level in each cell in the battery every 24 months or every 15,000* miles (24,000 km), whichever is sooner. The fluid should be at the level shown in the illustration above (A)**.
  • Use a screw driver to open the caps and a flashlight to inspect the level.
  • If necessary, add distilled water. The level should never be above the indicator (A**).
  • The fluid level should be checked if the battery has been recharged.
  • After inspection, be sure the cap over each battery cell is securely in place.
  • Check that the battery cables are correctly connected and properly tightened. Route ventilation hose through opening in floor (see page 147)
  • Never disconnect the battery when the engine is running, for example when changing the battery.
  • The battery should be disconnected from the vehicle when a battery charger is used directly on the battery.
  • However, if the battery is being charged via the connecting points in the engine compartment (see page 104), the battery must be connected.

    * More frequently in warm climates.
    ** The level indicator inside the battery could be designed in various ways. See illustration.

    pg. 147 Maintenance

    Replacing the battery
    1. Switch off the ignition.
    2. Wait at least 5 minutes after switching off the ignition before disconnecting the battery so that all information in the vehicle's electrical system can be stored in the control modules.
    3. Remove the retaining bracket and unscrew the cover over the battery. Wait at least 5 minutes after switching off the ignition before disconnecting the battery so that all information in the vehicle's electrical system can be stored in the control modules.
    4. Disconnect the negative (ground) cable first.

    5. Disconnect the positive cable and pull the ventilation hose (see next page) from the battery.
    6. Lift out the old battery and put a new battery into place.
    7. Connect the positive cable first.
    8. Connect the negative (ground) cable.
    9. Be sure that the ventilation hose (see below) is securely connected to the battery and that the other end of the hose is properly routed through the ventilation opening in the floor of the battery compartment.
    10. Reinstall the cover and retaining bracket and screw it securely in place.


    Ventilation hose

    warningWARNING!
    - Never expose the battery to open flame or electric spark.
    - Do not smoke near the battery.
    - Battery fluid contains sulfuric acid. Do not allow battery fluid to contact eyes, skin, fabrics or painted surfaces. If contact occurs, flush the affected area immediately with water. Obtain medical help immediately if eyes are affected.

    pg. 148 Maintenance

    Battery Maintenance (contd)

    warningWARNING!
    Ventilation hose: The battery generates hydrogen gas, which is flammable and explosive. The battery is fitted with a ventilation hose which vents hydrogen gas out of the battery compartment through a ventilation opening in the bottom of this compartment. If the battery must be replaced, it is essential that the ventilation hose is properly connected to the battery and that it is routed through the ventilation opening provided (see illustration).
    Be sure the ventilation hose is free of debris. Only use replacement batteries equipped with a ventilation hose. Consult your Volvo retailer.

    NOTE: After the battery has been disconnected or replaced, lock and unlock the vehicle with the central locking system's remote control to reactivate such features as the power windows, moonroof, courtesy lighting, etc.

    warningWARNING!
    PROPOSITION 65 WARNING!
    Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

    Fuses

    Replacing fuses
    If an electrical component fails to function, it is possible that a fuse has blown.

    The fuse boxes are located in four different places:
    1. Relays/fuse box in the engine compartment
    2. Fuse box in the passenger compartment, behind the plastic cover
    3. Fuse box in the passenger compartment, on the edge of the dashboard
    4. Fuse box in the cargo compartment.

    A label on the inside of each cover indicates the amperage and the electrical components that are connected to each fuse.

    The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it. Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult to remove, you will find a special fuse removal tool in the passenger compartment fuse box. From the side, examine the curved metal wire (see next page) to see if it is broken. If so, put in a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse). Spare fuses are stored in the fuse box in the engine compartment and the passenger compartment. If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system inspected by an authorized Volvo retailer.

    warningWARNING!
    Never use fuses with higher amperage than those stated on the following pages. Doing so could overload the vehicle's electrical system.
