Question about 2006 Volvo S40

AC DIED ON ME AT 51,000 MILES

Hello I live in South Florida so this is a HUGE problem! My 2006 volvo S40 is having ac problems. The AC will work on average for about 5minutes and then it will start to blow hot air. I tried to fill it with coolant and no luck with that.
The air is SUPER cold just like normal for that 5 or so minutes.

Anyone have any suggestions I am afraid that the dealer will tell me this is a $2000 job.

Thanks

Check fuse, maybe you just have a blown fuse. Or you might want to see if you need it charged.

Car turns over doesnt start then nothing at all


Happened to me several times in Florida, once in Canada. 1999 Chrysler Seabring Convertible Lxi 2.7. Computer locks out ignition for random periods. Took it to a Huge dealership in Florida, paid $350.00 for transmission shaft speed sensor stuff. Fixed it. Fine since. 1 yr. later body control module went (computer). Expensive to fix.$(800.00 just for dealer only part) Air door control, tachometer, and a rear window affected. I'll live with it as the 'failsafe' for loss of AC control is AC is 'Defrost/Floor'. Fan works fine.

There is moisture coming out of the AC vents on my daughters 2006 s40, usually during very hot weather and not until the car has been driven for several miles


The drain on the evaporator is stopped up,look for it directly bellow the ac lines ,where they go into the car,under the hood,it will be on the bottom of the blower box,use air pressure to blow into the drain to clear it out.

I have a 2006 s40 2.4i that needs an alternator and battery. I was told that it will get an updated alternator that also would requier an updated ac suction line. Can I still get a factory alternator...


I need a new alternator as well (2006 S40, 2.4ti, 80K miles) and the lowest quote I'm getting is $875. The dealer wants $950, an independent mechanic I trust quoted $930. You would think they could replace the part without all the extra nonsense -- in most other cars, they probably could. Volvo has made it unnecesarily difficult with the way they've designed this car. This is the first and last Volvo I will ever purchase.

The mechanic who quoted $875 also said he has someone in town who could replace the non-working parts of my current alternator and get it working again for about $575. But I wouldn't have a car for 2 full days.

The AC fan in my car (volvo s40-99) does not work


If you are talking about the blower motor fan,inside the car,look for a blown fuse,or a bad fan relay.The blower motor relay could be mounted near the blower motor,or in the relay box,look for the lables to guide you to it.If the relay,and the fan are fine,then replace the blower motor.

S40 with 80k- ac sucks!


If you have a leak in the system all the freon would leak out. Purchase a can of leak detector put in engine. Directions on how is on the can. If this shows a leak have lead repaired and new freon added. Could be compressor going out. Bought one on Ebay for $100 vs $300 from Auto Zone.

Lost the key to S40 - nned to "program" with computer. Need help


the United states will do the samething. the volvo dealer here would need registration and proof of ownership first to cut or reprogram and key. they need the vin number. i would suggest maybe next time in florida, you can do this.

hope this fixes it. jeff
