You are in the Ballpark. It will cost you several Hundred to fix. Will prob have to have the module replaced. Go to a trusted European repair placed. DO NOT TAKE TO DEALERunless you want to give them the car. They are very happy with $$$$$$$$ You can fix for alot less than dealer. Good luck.

SOURCE: How do I reset the SRS-Airbag SERVICE URGENT Fault

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Cheers,

2004 s40 radio code retrieval for reconditioned volvo. Do I definitely need to take the vehicle to a dealership to obtain the radio code


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Volvo service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

Hi, i have message appeared on dashboard volvo v50 2.0d 2005 "engine sistem service required", could you tell me what is that mean. thanks


Millage service message can be reset without dealer tools. However this is an error message. You need diagnostic tool to check the error code. All you can do right now is to enter hidden menu and check which module is reporting issue (DTC code).

I need radio code for volvo S90 1997. Thks for your help


There is no easy solution for this one. However, there are two things that should get you jiving again. 1. Go through the hand book and see if the Code number is there. Many folks write it there so they don't forget. The second solution will require you to contact your main Volvo Dealer. They should have the codes in thier computer records.

Before calling them you need to arm yourself with the following: Make and model of the vehicle : Index Number (I think you would say Licence Plate): VIN Number (Vehicle Identification Number) which usually can be be found either on the drivers door panel or under the Bonnet (Hood) and who is the registered owner. If that's you then thats Okay.

When you call ask for the Service Department who will look up your car and all its codes and pin numbers will be there. The only drawback however would be if the radio has ever been replaced.
If it is a genuine Volvo Radio then a quick look for the serial number would help too.

Hope this solves your problem.

All the best

I need a radio code for 1999 volvo c70.


The dealer is the only place to get the radio code for your car. It is always easier to go to the dealer where the vehicle was purchaced. If you have a shop that fixes your car, and they buy parts from a Volvo dealer, they can get the code for you.

Abs require service


The code is for the Vehicle Speed Signal (VSS). The VSS is produced by the ABS electronic control unit by averaging wheel speed sensor inputs and sending a digital signal via CAN bus to other modules that use the VSS. To test the ABS, a Volvo-compatible scan tool is necessary. If one is not available, the car should be sent to a Volvo dealer for ABS diagnosis. I can tell you however that most of the cars are fixed by replacing the ABS Control Module.
