I"ve been getting this red warning irradiate on my dash with the battery icon lit up and also the indigenous "POWER SYSTEM organization URGENT" top top the blog post readout the past day. It"ll which for about 2 minutes, and also then disappear together if nothing ever before happened.

Has anyone seen this before and if so, what"s the problem?FYI, I have actually an HID kit installed _without_ the DRLs turned turn off (there"s no flickering problem though). Would this it is in the cause?
Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning ~ above dashboard with battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)It would typical that her battery is to run low. Have your charging device checked the end at a an excellent shop or a dealership. This is no something you desire to ignore. You might be stranded and not be able to start your car or keep it running.On another note, the HID kit probably takes about 2 min to warm up and stop drawing power native the system to charge the capacitors to charge.

I had a apprehension that it was a short battery (I"ve left the lamp on for lengthy periods of time once I first bought the car and also didn"t realize the the lights stayed on in the middle position), however figured Volvo would have had one more message that actually said, "Low Battery, change Soon" or miscellaneous to that effect.You stated that that takes about 2 minutes because that the HID kit to warmth up and stop drawing power, however this only happens once every time the auto is started I"m assuming? i ask due to the fact that when mine "Power System company Urgent" message comes on, it"ll come up in the center of my journey for 2 minutes, disappear, climate come ago later in the drive for a couple more minutes. Go the HID kit execute a 2 minute power cycle once and also a while throughout the drive?

I"ve checked out said blog post pop up as soon as the alternator"s voltage regulator died.

Man...if this is the case, it"ll it is in another part for my dealership to ship in overnight. Hello again loaner S40.

Re: (skwirl)
skwirl, my shop called me once I was doing a tradition install the an electrical fan that the e-system has sensors on that that pilgrimage codes (maybe warning light?) as soon as there is a draw or flux sensed within the system. Guess the practice lights can do it. Have actually no expertise yet seems this could be related.The possibility of the battery or alternator going negative this shortly would it seems ~ odd even if the battery has been drained when or twice. Have to bounce back just fine.

Re: (Ride S40T)
Also keep in psychic the alternator puts out less voltage in ~ idle than as soon as you are driving. For this reason the draw at idle can be too much however traveling would make it go away. Still, have the charging system checked by the dealer. That should have actually a code no issue if the irradiate turned off.

Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning on dashboard through battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Dropped my automobile off at the dealership today. They watched the charging system and everything appears to be working simply fine. They saw that I had an aftermarket HID kit yet didn"t think that it was the cause of the problem.My company advisor called me that the only thing the can cause that post would it is in a poor alternator, but since the alternator test turned the end fine castle think that maybe simply one that the diodes in the alternator has actually gone bad and also is throwing up this warning signals. They"re going to overnight a brand-new alternator and also replace it tomorrow. An ext to come tomorrow...
Re: (Dextrobrick)
My battery just passed away without giving any type of message on board.......be careful, so check your battery ~ 1 year.
Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning top top dashboard with battery icon. Trouble? (skwirl)
Sorry to bring out a dead thread, but this just happened to my auto today, really concerns me because my car is the end of warranty... Only thing i can think of is washing my automobile last night and also the sound system was top top fo around 30 minutes... However i began the car and it was fine, this day i obtained the message... But the automobile starts generally with no delay, when i step on the gas i gain a weird sound, choose a humming sound... And also i acquired a examine engine with the code P0134 which reads: 02 sensor circuit no task detected (bank 1 sensor 1)anyone with any advise??

Battery shouldnt take a recording in only a year, Id have it tested, and also go indigenous there. Next step would certainly be to have the alternator either fill tested or just checked because that diode ripple. Sounds like a couple of lately have actually been having this issue.The alternators room not cheap unfortunately but is precious replacing to stop future problems.

Assuming there is no diode between the alternator and the battery, the voltage you measure can be either from the alternator or the battery. The means I experienced an autozone worker test it is to rev the engine while checking the voltage. Because that a good / working alternator, the voltage should boost when the engine revs. The toyota I observed the check on, has actually a direct link from the pedal come the engines by a steel cable, so by pulling the cable from the engine bay, it works the same as stepping ~ above the pedals. I don"t think it is the same for ours cars. So you would need to gain someone come rev the engine for you while you examine the voltage.
Re: (fone)
yeahh every this ingredient on our cars space electronic. Yet if therefore anyways identifier still gain both replaced, and also were execute you have the capacitor installed, befor the sub after the amp or befor the amp and also the sub? likewise if the battery is much less then a year old you can acquire it replaced under warrenty, identifier say gain a redtop optima battery there THE best.

Re: Red "Power System service Urgent" warning on dashboard v battery icon. Trouble? (heico2.4i)
If there"s a weird noise when revving then it"s the alternator, and also if it"s a DENSO alternator climate it certain is the alternator
Re: Red "Power System company Urgent" warning on dashbo ... (heico2.4i)
Standard alternator output need to be 13.7 or damn close to 14v"s. Short 12"s appears a small odd, thats trial and error output from most other volvos together Ive never ever replaced a S40 alt. To compare to though...

Yuuup time to replace the alt... On my method home from occupational this morning the message came increase again and also the dashboard started showin all these errors, organization the transmission, ABS airbag light, power steering walk on and off, the spin manage coming on and also off, the windows were walking up and also down really slow, constantly shedding power on acceleration and also when i got home, ns turned off the car and started the again a couple of times and also it was kinda struggling come start, ns guess ns will have to offer an arm and a foot to Deel Volvo in miami, fl top top monday...
