ALTENATOR? BATTERY??

1991 Volvo 240

Electrical problem
1991 Volvo 240 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive

Just yesterday drove it to the store and it just died in the middle of the street. Had someone jump start it. Drove it for not even a min but wouldn't keep a charge and died again. Let it sit over night and starting it up no problem. Drove it 5 min and died again.

Sounds like alternater is bad, car running off the battery which is drained cuz it isnt getting charged exccept when it gets a jump or sits over night and gains a little charge on its own ya know
