I have a Volvo S80 2005 auto and would like to know why the radiator fan operates when the engine is cold, please
Enes : and welcome to our web page here my name is***** a Certified Volvo Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try today to answer your question.
Enes : fan gets activated by computer if running all time then it cb be bad computer sending wrong readings and activating fan
Enes : but it would not make any harm if is only running at cold normal speed

what do you mean by the last paragraph, please?

Enes : It can computer that controls the fan but also cooling fan module is built uncoiling fan so it can bad that keeping it running cold
Enes : I was saying if cooling fan stays running at cold start and don't overheat it will not do any harm. Just. Make sure it never goes to overheat gauge you will be fine how it is
