accelerate fast. Not when I slowly step on the gas, and total speed
doesn't seem to matter, just acceleration. If the lights go on, they
stay on until I step off the gas.
By "idiot lights" I mean the danger indicators - battery charge, brake
failure, brake lights, and "service." They don't go on full, just
about halfway. Oil light doesn't go on.
I am driving a Volvo 240 DL, 1988 model.
Any insight to this problem? And is it serious, or just annoying?
Re: Idiot lights come half-on during acceleration
Just dealt with the same thing in my 82 240. i removed the alt. and
cleaned EVERY electrical connection. No more glowing. I also cleaned
any under-hood electrical connection that seemed suspect. I tend to
think it is a grounding problem that got cured when i messed with the
alt. I have trouble believing that a weak alt. or bad hook up
connection would activate all the idiot lights. then again, i've
learned to believe all things are possible when it comes to stupid
electrical problems on my 240.
