Charging Mystery Continues: 1993 Volvo 940 900

Dear Amarin,

Hope you're well. I presumed that the engine had just been started and that the car was stationary.

When ambient temperatures are, say, 32⁰C (90⁰F), it won't take long before the alternator casing's temperature reaches 49⁰C (120⁰F).

As an experiment, I'll see how long it takes at, say, an ambient temperature of 21⁰C (70⁰F), for the alternator on my car to reach 49⁰C. This test will be done with the car parked.

As I have to be out-and-about today, I'll take with me an infrared thermometer, and measure the alternator's temperature at various points. I'll report my findings.

Hope this helps.

Yours faithfully,

Spook
