mechanic and he put new fluid and checked for leaks i drove off and the
air conditioning worked for a week and so did the fans. But the blower
motor stopped yesterday. When I turn on the car the lights on the fan and
auto flash a number of times does this mean i need a switch..help
Re: 1996 Volvo 850
The lights flashing are telling you that the control unit has found a
problem with something in the climate control system. Most likely is
the motor has started to draw too much current for the applied voltage.
The control unit monitors this to protect the fan controller in the
event of motor failure. If this is your problem replacing the fan motor
should cure it. However, to be sure you should have the codes read,
which requires a special, Volvo specific tool for your car.
