• Republished: Battery Not Charging on SV650

    This page is here as a reference for others experiencing the issues I have been having on my 2002 SV650-S lately.

    SYMPTOM: Battery not charging, so bike refuses to start every so often. Misfire in Idle range but not always on the same cylinder.

     

  • Saab 9-3 Front Fusebox Layout

    Below is the ordering and rating of fuses for the Passenger side fusebox (located in the end of the Dashboard) for the Saab 9-3

  • Saab 9-3 Rear Fusebox layout

    The rear fusebox is located in the boot, behind the right hand side panel. The panel should just pull outwards and then you'll see the fusebox and rear electrical centre (also the stock amp if it was fitted at the factory).

    This documentation details what each of those fuses are. The image is clicky so you can view a larger version if required.

  • Volvo 440: Voltage Decreases as Engine Speed Rises

    Having resolved the issue, it's a fairly garden variety fault, but I thought I'd document it in that the symptoms are almost exactly the opposite of what we expect to see when there's a fault with the charging system.

    Essentially, as the engine speed rises, the voltage (measured across the battery, or from anywhere else in the car) drops - and not just a little.
