Climate control systems - general information
Condensation on the inside of the windows
Keeping the insides of the windows clean will help reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the windows.
Use a commercial window cleaning agent to clean the windows.
Ice and snow
Always keep the air intake grille at the base of the windshield free of snow.
Cabin air filter
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at the recommended intervals. Please refer to your Warranty and Service
Records Information booklet, or consult your Volvo retailer for these intervals. The filter should be replaced more
often when driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The filter cannot be cleaned and therefore should always be
replaced with a new one.
The sunlight sensor on the dashboard and passenger compartment temperature sensor in the ECC control panel
should not be covered in any way as this could cause incorrect information to be sent to the ECC system.
Parking the vehicle in warm weather
If your vehicle has been parked in the sun in warm weather, opening the windows and moonroof (option) for several
minutes before driving will help release the warm air from the passenger compartment. When the engine is running,
close the windows and moonroof and use the recirculation function for several minutes to enable the air
conditioning to cool the compartment as quickly as possible.
Windows and optional moonroof
The ECC system will function best if the windows and optional moonroof are closed. If you drive with the
moonroof open, we recommend that you manually adjust the temperature and blower control (the LED in the
AUTO switch should be off).
