Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

Dear customer, this charging problems are usually related to misconfiguration problems with the charger mode.
Sometimes it is due to error codes caused by a misreading in the computer, problems with the scheduled charging or problems with the charger itself.
Most of the times a factory data reset throught a diagnostic tool with Volvo software sort out the problem.
Most unlikely ,but in case the problems is not sorted with the diagnostic tool we read the error codes and according to them we proceed to attack the fault.

My goal is to give you the best advice i can based on your description, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
