XC90  Volvo air conditioner does not cool well at idle ok while driving

3 Answers


Have the pressures checked, this sounds like you don't have enough airflow through the condenser, could be plugged with dirt and bugs.

I just remembered a vehicle that was in my shop some years ago that was the same thing and had correct pressures anyway to make it short I added another electric pusher fan than came on with the compressor and that cured the problem at low speeds.

What did you end up doing? I have a Volvo XC90 2014, does the same thing.
