SOURCE: Intermittent Lights, Speedo, and Fan Problems

On your VOLVO 850.
The Head Lights are Relatinated Directtly with the Ignition switch.
The ignition switch send 12v. Power to the MAIN HEAD LIGHT RELAY and BULB FAILURE WARNIG SENSOR. Incorporated in the Same relay.
Very Important check the Battery terminals, And few ground Below the Battery Holder.
The turn signal switch , has the Funtion to Change the Head lights to LOW or HIGH Beam.
Check for proper funtion.
On left side of the Engine compartment In the Fuse block.
Check the FUSE # 13, 15amp. Replace if need.
The TURN signal work with the Same FUSE # 13. 15 amp.
Related with the Turn Signal switch.
Ok. The blower MOTOR.
Some times work And some times not.
Check the ground wire "BLACK" Below right side of Instrument Panel. If the ground is OK..
Turn the Ignition key to RUN position,
SET the A/C fan to MAX position or HIGH position.
When the Fan is set to High The system make a BY pass At the Blowert motor REsistor. and use a Blower motor Realy to give a High speed.
Check if There a POWER 12v. at the Green/red Wire.
If you found Power . Check if there a Negative 12v. at the Black WIRE. If you found negative 12v.
Replace the BLOWER MOTOR..
For the Instrument Panel. I recomend Check the FUSE # 3
In the fuse box, Left Rear of the engine compartment.
If the fuse is ok. Check for Power 12v. if you found power
check all the grounds. But if NOT. I recomend Replace the Ignition switch. Because can be the Cause of the Electrical problem in your car.

OK.. I hope this help to try diagnostic your vehicle.
Thank you for use fixya.

Have you run the recalibration sequence for this? you put the ignition in the on position, then hold down the power and recirculation buttons for five seconds until you start getting flashing lights on your led panel. Let it finish flashing - 20 seconds to two minutes. That will recalibrate your driver/passenger side modes. The other thing is you do know that the pacifica is equipped with a delay, if the delay is lit up on your panel, it counts down so many minutes until the engine is warmed up and then your heater will blow, while it is in delay mode the blower automatically shifts to the lowest setting. hitting buttons like you said, you are probably eventually turning off the delay and then the blower motor will kick up.

My 2001 dodge intrepid wont start

Many many reasons, camshaft drive chain failure (2.7 V6) is one, no spark is another, no fuel pressure is another, if not cranking over with the starter then the battery can be the cause or the cables to it are loose or corroded.

Heater fan stopped working

Most of the time the fan relay is bad. You can bump the dash on the passenger side next to the glove box and sometimes that will cause the relay to close and the fan will start. You have to bump it pretty hard. The relay is behind the dash, next to the glove box.

My A/C fan will not work always

the fan should be located under the dash on the passenger side. also make sure that the reostat connection is nice and tight this controls the fan speed and sometimes it can come loose due to vibration.
