2002 Volvo S80 Question: Fan Runs,Battery Dies, Car will not even turn over

Really need to have this car scanned by a Volvo savvy tech and shop. This car is very complex, the fact that the fan kept running and drained your battery, is a sign that you have a significant electrical issue. These cars are very sensitive, I have seen tow truck drivers ruin the programming in the central electrical computer just by jump starting the car. The car did not run after that and major repairs were required, so be careful!
