I had a failed fan (I think it is called the auxiliary fan) in front of the
radiator/AC condensor on our '85 765T, but replacing the viscous clutch
completely cured the symptoms you describe. Ours would flit with the red
within a minute of coming to a stop in the Phoenix summer until I replaced
the fan clutch. Be prepared to be shocked by the price - almost $100 US
aftermarket or about $200 US from Volvo! I went with the after market.
In an effort to improve the operation of our A/C I also replaced the fan a
couple years later but didn't really notice a difference. In ours there is
no actual relay, only a thermal sensor in the lower radiator hose.
