This happened in my 2006 Volvo xc90. We added freon and it cooled off on my side but makes a really loud noise when the ac cycles on and off in idle positions. Did you solve your issue??

My issue was that the passenger side was not cooling, I don't remember a noise. They took off the condenser and it rattled from thousands of pieces where it had crumbled inside. The dealership mechanic said it shot those small pieces all through the lines and tripped off sensors and blocked lines. After replacing the condenser and putting in new lines, the air works great. Like I said it was 2500 and took 5 days, a lot of that was researching the issue.

I am buying a new volvo SC90. We shut off the care in garage, no fan running, came back 30 minutes later and the fan was running, blowing air out vents in the car, not the fan that cools the radiator. Has anyone had this too? Has the dealer been able to fix it? If so what was wrong? Don't want a dead battery!

We just got a new 2011 XC90 (yes, there was still one on the lot) and found the same thing. The dealer is telling me that "The Interior Air Quality System runs at random times, and will not drain the battery". I hope he knows what he is talking about.

I own a 2009 xc90, and the battery has died twice in summer time and I have had to call a tow truck to jump start the car. I have talked to the dealer but they just simply will not acknowledge the problem. Needless to say they have also have the nerve to blame ME for the problem. The only good thing is that the problem only appears to happen during hot days, so most of the year I'm ok.
I love my car but my husband is ready to change it. The question is what to buy, all cars have their issues.
