Volvo is recalling 17,614 MY 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.
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 center at 1-800-458-1552.
