Let’s talk Climate Control Temp Sensor
Troubleshoot Flashing AC And Rec Lights On Your Volvo’s Electronic Climate Control System
MVS Forum user jreed:
“I’m in the process of trying to figure out why the ECC climate control system on my ’97 855 GLT (158k miles) is unhappy and blinking its AC and REC lights at start up. As best I can tell the system functions as intended: AC is cool, fan blows normally, temperature tracking seems ok, position knobs for upper and lower vents direct the air properly, the recirculation switch makes the damper move into recirculate mode, etc. I’m just going through the system checking out components to try and find one or more that isn’t working right.”
Bonus! Volvo Facts
- Volvo has always put people first. Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson founded Volvo on the idea that “cars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we do at Volvo, therefore, is and must remain safety”. We still believe that today. Our Vision 2020 personifies this. Our goal is that, by 2020, no one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo.
