    connections.....am assuming the in line fuse is on the trailer side..

    Thanks, will look for a thicker one. It must be more hidden from
    view. It isn't possible to disconnet the alt. feed at the battery
    end?

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,

    I don't think so. From the wiring diagram in the Haynes Manual it looks as
    if the heavy cable goes from the battery to the starter motor, and then on
    to the alternator - so there isn't a dedicated alternator cable at the
    battery end.

    That's exactly how it is on 200 and 700 series Volvos, so it probably is
    in later ones too.

    The thinner wire supplies field excitation power, it's not just for the
    warning light.

    Looked again and cannot see a thicker cable. I`m sure it`s there but
    there is too much junk in the way to see properly.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    On the assumption that the above email address is genuine, I've sent you a
    picture of the alternator from the Haynes Manual - with the connection
    indicated - so that you'll know what you're looking for.

    No, the alt power wire connects to the starter solonoid, so you wont find it
    at the battery.
