What about it??
I wouldn't try it if you don't know how, (specially if this is what is known as an interference engine). Valve timing is *very* delicate and stray pistons love to chew them up!

SOURCE: 1999 Volvo S80 T6, Starts blower on its own.

If you are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off.

This could be one of many problems so it's probably best checked by someone with the correct tools and knowledge.

That being said,

With your engine cold, open your hood and start your car. Check to see if your cooling fan is engaged, take note of its speed if it is. Then turn on your AC and listen for the compressor clutch to engage. once you hear it, check to see that your cooling fan is blowing, if it wasn't before. The fan should be on and in high speed whenever your AC is on, whether the engine is hot or not. If it is not, then the reason for losing cold air is that, due to the lack of being properly cooled, your freon pressure is getting too high and is causing the compressor to turn off.

If the fan is blowing as it should be, you may have a faulty compressor or the clutch on it may need to be shimmed.

Another culprit could be that your system is low on freon or the switch that senses the pressure is faulty.

And yet another culprit could be a faulty relay that is overheating and shorting out.

Sorry I couldn't give you a difinitive answer as to what the problem is, but without diagnosing it myself, this is the best I give you.

Good luck!!

In my 2000 volvo s80, the radio stop working and the door lock button and the dome lights are intermittent. I checked all the fuses and are all good.

Try resetting the electrical system by locking and unlocking the doors with your key in the driver's door 5 times in a row. A service manager at a Volvo dealer showed me this after they did some work on my car and on the way home the sunroof wouldn't close.

I have a 2001 S80 that I have to reset the electrical system like this every time I disconnect the battery. All kinds of stuff stops working...sun roof, door locks, lights, radio, windows, etc. Just reset like described and everything should start working again.

Good luck.
