2nd Generation Volvo S60/V60 Weak Battery After Being Parked For Long Periods of Time

Swedish car maker Volvo began producing its S60 model in 2000 and has produced the second generation follow up, the S60/V60, from 2010 to the present. This compact executive vehicle features a four-cylinder engine using a turbocharged direct injection. This Volvo model has proven to be a hit among car buyers, however, certain mechanical issues have been known to occur from time to time.

One issue that owners of this model of Volvo have complained of is a low battery after the vehicle has been sitting for a few days. Despite the fact that there have not been any electronic devices plugged into the car's outlets, nor has the radio or air conditioner been used excessively, the battery seems to be draining faster than normal.

Whether or not your second generation S60/V60 is experiencing an abnormal drainage of the battery or if the drain is something that is perfectly in line with what one might expect from a typical battery, a dead battery can definitely be a problem. You do not want to find yourself with a dead battery and stranded in bad weather far from home. It is worth getting checked out and with any luck the problem will be a result of a bad battery and not some other mechanical function that is causing an excessive drain on the battery's power.

If you are the owner of a second generation Volvo S60 or V60 and are experiencing an issue with a weak battery after being parked for an extended period of time, you should take your vehicle in for inspection by a local Volvo service expert.
