Since the weather turned warm, my blower motor will come on by itself after the car has been parked. Looked in the manual, but couldn't find anything. Will it do this to lower the interior temps, or is something amiss?<p>BTW 01 V70 2.4T<p>Thanks

Normal. My '01 V70XC does it. I assume it's to cool down cabin. It will shut off by itself.

Re: (TWMn)

TWMn is sort of correct. The blower comes on after the AC's been running to dry out the Climate Control ducting. Helps to prevent that locker room smell. SOP.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Steely)

How long should it run, I could see a few min, but it's been on after I've been out of the car for a longer period of time.

It can run intermittently for some time (I've been away from my car on hot/humid days for well over an hour only to come back with the blower on); this is completely normal and as far as I can tell, a great feature to preserve the longevity of the A/C <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I've had a car with stinky mold growth in the a/c so all I can say is that as long as it doesn't run the battery down, enjoy it saving you that gigantic pain in the butt. It was several cans of spray over several weeks to cure that situation, it was a 940 with the backwards a/c button (push to turn off) and the previous owner apparently left it on 100% of the time.
