    I know this is really old but did you find a solution? I have the same issue on my 99 S80 T6. New fan, won't run even when overheating.

Which fan motor do you want to repair, the one inside the car for climate control or outside for engine cooling next to radiator? Inside locate fan please note some libraries have repair manuals that you can check with them for free you usually can go and find at least the location this way. Check fuse location and electrically check BOTH SIDES of the fuse with a digital volt meter not a test light some circuits in newer computer control vehicles can be damaged by test lights. Once you find the fan (inside) it also has a resister pack usually somewhere on the a/c heater assembly, check for voltage at the input of the motor AND the ground side also remember electricity needs a complete circuit.
If outside cooling motor look for a fuse box outside in the engine compartment and check that also inspect the wiring connections in line for melting usually at the motor this is a tell tale sign that the motor is using too much current. Also there needs to be a temperature switch in the cooling system sometimes in the radiator or in the engine/block/head. watch the color code of the wire from motor trace back usually to a relay or two speed resister block. Also some cars have a secondary fan for the A/C condenser I assume you don't mean this one.

My 2002 volvo s60 fan blower motor stys on after i shut ignition switch off


Your Volvo does not have have a problem at all. The feature is what is known as a 'turbo timer' and is an important part of most turbocharged vehicles such as yours.

Your volvo is powered by a 5 cyclinder 2.4 liter engine that is turbocharged. Which means the engine works on the principle of 'forced induction' whcih helps it make more power.

A turbo like yours has a small impellor placed in the early section of the exhaust which is then spun up by heated and expanding exhaust vapors. this power is then transferred back to a 'charger or pump that actually forces additional air into the engine resulting in the ability to burn a more powerful mixture of air to fuel. Unlike your engine which even under very aggressive driving will only sustain forces at most approachign 9 thousand rpm, a turbo charger often spins with speeds in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of revolutions per minute. because of this they depend on a steady stream of engine oil to both lubricate and saturate the very rapidly spinning parts to keep them cool.

when the engine is suddenly shut off after a long or spirited drive the oil pump also stops, this could result in overheating and damage to the turbo.

As a result of this, Volvo was one of the fisrt companies to install a 'turbo timer' mechanism in its T models which as you noticed will continue to operate the fan for a pre calculated amount of time after you shut the car off in order to properly cool down the turbo.

Again your car has no problem whatsoever, this is a good thing and a nice feature to have whcih will definably lend itself to extending the overall life of your engine over time.

My 1996 Volvo 850 2.4 I5 non-turbo appears to be overheating. I replaced the Thermostat but it still appears to be overheating. How do I troubleshoot to see if it is the radiator or maybe the cooling fans?


first you need to check your cooling fan working you can do so by turning your a/c on if your a/c is working properly/if so turn off a/c and let car sit till overheat and see if fan kicks in.if not possible your fan circuit electrical or sensor related/and also check for air in your system bleed system good check for circulation open radiator cap.

Volvo Radiator, Thermostat and Sensors Your cooling system's temperature controls include all coolant temperature sensors, Volvo thermostat, Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap, cooling fan(s) and fan clutch (if equipped). These cooling system parts function primarily independent of the engine but control the engine either through cooling or by sending control signals to your Volvo's electronic systems.
The Volvo thermostat is a spring-loaded valve that opens and closes based on the temperature of the coolant flowing through it. A high temperature reading followed by a drop to normal temperature (or a continuously low temperature) is a common first sign of a sticking Volvo thermostat. However, many other conditions may cause these symptoms, so you need to know how to eliminate each possibility.
The Volvo radiator or expansion tank cap is also a spring-loaded valve reacting to system pressure. It serves to maintain proper system coolant level at predetermined pressures. It must always be replaced with an exact replacement cap with the same pressure setting. Never use other caps except for short-term emergencies!
A belt-driven fan blade for pulling air through the Volvo radiator is usually on the Volvo water pump pulley and should have a fan clutch to control it. The fan clutch allows the fan to turn with the belt at low engine speed and "free-wheel" at higher speeds. A bad fan clutch either doesn't allow the fan to spin at low speed (overheating in traffic) or doesn't allow it to free-wheel at high speed (potential overheating on highway or reduced gas mileage).
An electric fan can be either by itself (usually front-wheel drive) or auxiliary (used with a mechanical fan). Both types are controlled via a temperature sensor - in the Volvo radiator or upper Volvo radiator hose or on the Volvo thermostat or Volvo water pump housing. This sensor is usually an on/off type switch with a fixed temperature setting. (Some vehicles may have 2-3 settings for multi-speed fans.) This sensor is commonly called an "auxilliary fan switch".
Other common temperature sensors are: 1) gauge sender (variable output); 2) warning light sender (on/off type); 3) lambda and/or fuel injection sensor(s) (variable to control fuel injection settings); 4) thermo-time switch (cold start valve control). Your Volvo may have other sensors as well.
Temperature control is critical to both performance and emission control. Unfortunately, this system is the most difficult to troubleshoot without proper equipment and diagrams. It's even more difficult with computers that adjust timing, idle speed, vacuum and fuel delivery automatically to make up for potentially faulty temperature sensor signals.
Maintenance of your cooling system sensors is virtually impossible since there's nothing really to "maintain". Keeping them clean both internally (coolant replacement) and externally (engine cleaning) is the best way to ensure trouble-free driving. Checking and replacing all parts at the factory-recommended time or mileage limits helps as well

Volvo Cooling sensor / fan arent working


Take it one step at a time. First, replace the coolant sensor and try to get the car to start WITH the sensor connected. Make sure that you DO NOT use any teflon tape when installing the switch (this will isolate the switch which will not ground it, making it not work). Th computer receives signals from numerous sensors, and makes adjustments according to inputs received. When the computer gets a signal that the car is still cold, it will adjust the fuel/air ratio to make it run richer (more fuel than air). Once the car is running it will run rough due to a improper mixture since the computer is never sensing the car is warmed up since the sensor is unplugged. This will also account for the slow start due to a richer fuel mixture.
