Volvo is recalling 17,614 M/Y 2008-2009 S80, V70, and XC70 vehicles. The engine cooling fan may stop working due to a software programming
error in the Fan Control Module (FCM). Depending on driving conditions, the customer may experience reduced air conditioning performance, and/or
rapid increase in engine coolant temperature.
This situation may result in loss of cooling system function and engine failure. The driver may not have sufficient time to react to the warning light(s) or
the text message in the instrument panel, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the fan control module free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during july 2009. Owners may contact Volvo Customer Care
