Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX you have a volt meter, I can help you diagnose this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I do have a volt meter. My plan was 1st to see if 12v was getting to the motor. If it was 12v at the connector, i'd take the motor out and then put 12v to it from the battery. If it didnt work id replace it. Im not sure what the plan was if it worked. My 1st problem is actually finding the blower motor on this model. Ive taken glove box out and its not right there like on previous models.

Tim,


I downloaded this document and have some questions. On the first page I'm not sure I understand where that is located or what it is. Do I just unplug that connector.


 


On Page 3 where it says to remove the control module relay box. Is there any issues with that. Is it possibel to get access to the link it refers to?


 


Is the connector on the bottom of Page 4 and top of Page 5 the power to the motor?


 


Is the blower motor down in the blue cage on the top of Page 6?


 


Can that blower motor wrench be purchased?


 


Regarding diagnosing this how do I go about doing this? Would you reccommend replacing the blower motor resistor at the same time? Thanks

Yes, the tool will need to be purchased from a volvo dealer, they are not cheap. it may be best to have them do this, the total labor to replace these is 2 hours, so about 160 dollars, you will most likely have this much into the tool alone,Tim
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thanks tim. Based on what I've described would you think that the motor is shot or could it just be the climate fan relay. That is another issue because it is in the 2nd level of the fuse box under the hood, which i have no idea how you get to.

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
