On my '97 850GLT, when the ignition switch is in the accessory
position the blower runs if it is set to a fixed manual speed but not
if it is set to the auto position. I don't know how Volvo modified
your A/C. It would seem to be a bit iffy to just wire it like that,
but if they only added an extra timer maybe the timer went bad.
