Nothing is wrong. One cable runs from the alternator directly to the ungrounded post of the battery, without any need of going through the key switch. For this wire to become "dead", one of the cables to the battery must be unhooked.

Replacing an alternator 92 Volvo?

I don't know if a '92 is different to my '84 240 dl but for my car it's quite straight forward. Disconnect the battery. There are 3 bolts to remove which hold the alternator, start with the one which tensions the fanbelt via a sliding arm. Once loosened move the arm/alternator to release the tension and unhook the fanbelt. Then undo the other two bolts and slide them out, then there is an earth cable, a live cable and one other to undo. I guess this may vary on other models with different connections.
