P reg 96 volvo v 40 fan switch location

Volvo v40 p reg radiator fan does not run when engine gets hot. I have conected the fan direct to the car battery and it works ok. I think there should be a wax fan control switch somewere that must be faulty. But were is it ? Its normaly screwed into the radator but i just carnt find it. How do i test it? is there any way of testing the wireing harnes from switch to fan?
I have been told to just wire a togle switch and inline 30 amp fuse from the battery which should be ok but just want to check as its not my car

It could be a fan switch relay also. or a bad connection. or any type of thing. it's best to let the volvo dealer take care of the issues. volvo's are tricky to work on and they are best equipped with highly skilled and trained volvo technicians that would know more about volvo's than any other shop around.

Why does 2000 s40 volvo turbo runs hot and the fan stays on after shut off


fans are designed to run on after you shut engine down as engine temperature rise after switching off . running hot could be caused by the top hose having gone soft when you rev the engine the water pump sucks the hose flat stopping the coolant flow or the radiator is blocked and need flushing out

Volvo radiator fan


It should be pulling air into the engine bay. If the fan still doesn't work after being replaced ; check (temp sensor) and fan relay.

Yes, having no thermostat can cause the car to run fast as it will still be set in it's "warm up" mode and will be injecting a richer mixture of fuel/air into the cylinders. There may be an additional cold start injector that just works while the engine is cold. You will probably use more fuel like this. It's not a great idea to run with no thermostat anyway because you get uneven hot and cold spots around the engine which is bad for it. Cheers

I own a Volvo V40 Auto (year 2000) The heater fan is working but no hot air comes out although I've just tried it again and now seems to be O.K so the problem seems to be intermittent. I would be very...


might need to bleed heating system / radiator. Air lock could stop flow of hot water. Check water colour in radiator - if brown and gungy there could be a build up of sludge so radiator flush required.
when dial / lever moved to turn heat on / off see if you can hear anything moving - there should be! Quite often when heater turned on or off small solid wires move valves that are visible under dash and on engine bay firewall. Watch these rods when someone is turning the heater from cold to hot and see if anything is sticking or loose
