Question about 1993 Volvo 940
I dont know if its related - but since the temp here (Alabama) has gotten up to about 100 - my AC works sometimes - and at others doesnt - (When it does its very cool) - I can even be driving down the road - and suddenty it will start working.... Any ideas - Thanks!!!!
CHECK THE TEMP CONTROL UNIT. REMOVE IT FROM CAR. OPEN BACK OF UNIT U WILL FIND
A CIRQUIT BOARD. USE A MAGNIFAEING GLASS TO INSPECT ALL SOLDER CONTACTS.THEY TEND TO BREAK LOOSE SOMETIMES FOR DIFFERENT REASONS.WHEN YOU HIT A BUMP ON THE ROAD OR TEMPERATURE CHANGES IT LOSES CONTACT OR RECONECTS AND THEN IT WORKS AGAIN.OLSO U CAN USE A TESTER ON OHM SETTING TO CHECK CONTINUITY.
RESOLDER BAD CONTACT GENTLY OF COURSE. IT IS A PIECE OF CAKE.

I had this problem and it was not the blower motor which would be obvious because you will either not have any air blowing or it will sound like a strangled sheep under your passenger side dashboard.
My solution was a new dash control unit for about $200. The solders on the back side were all deteriorated on my 95 volvo 940 and the connection was coming in and out. A very careful soldering person might just fix it, but I opted for the new panel because it was easier.

Mine was like that, after replacing blower motor ordered from autozone, works like brand new.
