Question about 2004 Volvo V40 Wagon
Had the driver door apart to check the locking switch. Have also asked around dealer and others, getting conflicting answers.
Weird one - have you tried resetting the error and seeing if it comes back? If not, good. Temporary hiccup.
If it comes back, maybe source a used/no error SRS module and swap out with yours and see what happens. The codes are recorded in the SRS module so a good one will have no codes.
Alternatively, it might be corrosion in one of the wiring looms - if you can trace out the wires (and ohm them out) going through the door to the car, the problem might be in there too.
The SRS module is allegedly easy to swap with four bolts and 20 minutes to spare. Depending on how cheap they are to get, that could be worth a shot.
Good luck, and please post a comment if/when you find a solution to help others. :)

SOURCE: volvo v40 stalling when idling
If the car shakes and stalls at lights stop signs etc. I would check the egr ( exhaust recirculator valve) first this valve should open when in driving mode and close immediately when engine comes back to idle. to check this find the valve on the intake manifold ( looks like a mushroom) remove vaccuum line and plug hose drive the car and see if it fixes the problem. If it does get one from local parts store. Most brands such as standard are universal and come with baffles that must be installed. do not leave the valve disconnected the engine will "ping" when driving forcing you to buy higher octane gas. It is also illegal to remove this unit for emission reasons.

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.

If you have SRS and "brake failure" it should be taken to a dealer. a shadetree mechanic will screw more up than he will fix in this case. trust me on this! you will pay a price, but will save you more $ and less headache in the longrun.

First check if you have enough coolant in your car. If it's low, it might not reach your system. When the engine is off it should be just under MAX.
