i have a 2006 volvo xc 70 /problem,,cooling fan comes on as soon as i turn on engine and goes off when i shut off engine ,,i replaced thermostat and temperature sensor ,i replaced cooling fan , i still have the same problem ,,and there there is no visible cooling fan relay switch on this 2006 model.
Volvo Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 7 months ago

on This model there is no relay , We have Cooling fan control module at radiator frame support ( and is common issue ) most likely that needs to be replaced ,but make sure you check the electrical connector on it for any back out pins making poor connection before replacement

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If the fan only runs when the engine is running then it's more likely due to an input such as coolant temperature or a/c pressure. If the fan runs all the time or as soon as the key is turned on then it cloud be related to the fan controller.

The first step in diagnosing the problem was to use a code reader or scan tool to see if any fault codes have set. Have you checked for codes?

Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
can't remember the numbers, but the mechanic did say (fan control module) there is no visible fan control module on this fan , another code was ( ac pressure sensor switch ) i can get the exact code numbers on monday
Volvo Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Let me know exactly hat is currently setting and we'll go from there.
