warm interior

Post by xtwister » Fri Aug 16, 2019 8:16 pm

Car interior gets really warm even tho a/c is in full.
I have to put the a/c on full and it blowing ice cold air but the cabin feels like it still hot.
My other car i can put the a/c on low speed and it feels cool but the v70 i have to put it on max and it never seems to cool.
The interior on the v70 just seems hot. Is it the heater core malfunctioning or something?

Take it off recirculate. For some reason my S80 cools much quicker on fresh air mode on a hot day. The interior temperature sensor might be blocked up with lint as well. At least on the S80 it has a fan that pulls air through the sensor which also pulls dust and lint blocking it and causing the climate control to malfunction. Start trying those first. June

i checked the sensor and cleaned it.. then i thought too much freon.. had it evaced.. then added.... its cold ac from the vents. Its just when i touch the dash it is hot... so Im assuming the ac is fighting the hot interior of the car

Do you run it on recirculate or fresh air? June

See as above, make sure there is no light on the Recirculate button

Is the airflow strong enough through the vents ? Or it gets weaker after 10-15min ?

May as well check the cabin air filter - there may be two filters in there. The rear torx screws of the cover are tough to get, I use a torx socket with a wrench

If it's rather the dashboard that gets hot, put the Windshield and Center vents on (Floor vents off), it should cool down the dashboard better. I also put a dash mate on mine, really cuts off the heat radiating from the dash material during hot sunny days www.youtube.com/watch?v=v52zhFGoVjw

Interresting! i changed mine yesterday and found only one but i saw i could fit two into the box. Is it worth doing that?

I always thought the V70 and the XC70 had a warm interior, specially at the pedal foot. I should try without recirculate as well.

NO, do not put two filters in it. It will choke the blower. There is a thicker charcoal impregnated, more expensive filter that fits if you knock out the divider.

for the original poster: what is the vent discharge temp?

Speaking about the filters, I too have only one, the thinner charcoal one. I tried replacing it with the thicker charcoal one and the air flow was significantly reduced. I for one recommend too using only the thin charcoal filter.

The black interior cars are unGodly hot in comparison. Our 01 has the black & it’s night and day difference.

There's a filter airflow compensation setting in Vida that should be changed when switching to the thicker filter. There are also auto-mode airflow adjustment settings if you prefer more or less air flowing through in auto modd.

Personally I'm not having any issues, though about +35 C is as hot as I ever drive in. Takes a minute or two to cool the car down then all is fine. Never use recirc. I've got a light interior which also helps I guess.
