Question about 1996 Volvo 960

Open Question

I have a 1997 volvo 960. Initially the problem started when the A/C would sometimes come on and sometimes it would not. After I would drive it for a while and shut it off when I would restart the car the A/c would then come on. Over the last 2-3 months I have to drive it longer and shut the car off numerous times and restart it for the Ac to come on. One thing I notice is that the A/C light on the dash panel starts flashing and will not stop until I shut the car off . After numerous restarts the ac will finally come on and the blue AC light remains on and the AC works fine.

This does not seem logical as the AC compressor is run off of a belt attached to the engine. If you hear the fan spinning and can hear the relay click when the AC is turned on, it is engaging properly. If you run the AC full blast for about 10-15 minutes and look under the hood you should be able to find the lines for the AC and see some condensation on one portion and feel heat coming off the other portion. The AC line should be a relatively thin silver colored pipe with 2 fittings on top, one high pressure and one low pressure. Assuming everything is running as it should, and the AC is simply not cold (which is the most common problem), you can buy an AC recharge kit at your local auto parts store. Depending on the year of the car, you may need to bleed the system of the old refrigerant as they changed the standard freon used in recent years. The only moving parts in the system are the fan and compressor, so if there is a drop in speed, it will be one of these components.

It's on the drivers side of the dashboard -- exposed when the door is open.

SOURCE: 1995 volvo 960 AC problem

Car has vaccuum leak(s). If you remove the panel under drivers foot area, look to the center area. You will see some vacuum chambers with different color vacuum lines running to them. the yellow one is faulty 80% of the time. Carefully remove it and plug the line itself. you dont need to plug the chamber. this should fix problem, and you wont notice any function lost on climate system.

SOURCE: 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.

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

My volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?


Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

    Check engine lite is on:1997 volvo 960 p0705 transmission code


    Just because your Check Engine light came on doesn't mean there's something wrong at all. Various Mechanical functions are timed by the Manufacture to signify Servicing required.

    Sometimes they're set at 50K miles or more, when the light starts going on, all you have to do is take it to an Authorized Service Shop and they Reset the timer. Most places won't even charge you for doing it unless they find something wrong.
