2001 Volvo S80 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
At idle car will intermitantly run rough as if about to stall, but does not stall. No noticable problem at highway speeds. When this happens the dash lights dim. I am told it is the alternator, but I do not understand how the alternator causes the engine issue. To me it seems an electrical problem with the engine is causing the drive belt to the alternator to slow and the lights dim because the near stall.
