Question about Volvo S80

3 Answers

The SRS light came on in my 1999 Volvo S-80 after my brother in law jumped the battery from the front of the car. It's been on for 15ooo miles, no problems just a pain in my ****. I had to change fuses on many items because of that? I do not want to go to dealer for this simple resetting of light!

Ignition position I. Press and hold in the reset button for the trip odometer. Ignition position II. NOTE: TURN THE KEY TO POSITION II WITHIN 2 SECONDS! Hold the reset button for the trip odometer pressed in until the original value has been reset. The information lamp lights when the reset button must be released.
Release the reset button for the tnp odometer within 4 seconds. The instrument gives an audible signal when resetting has succeeded. If the trip odometer is already reset, the rest button must be held in for a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of 14 seconds.

Did you try disconnecting the battery cable for 10 minutes, reconnect cable. It might reset and turn off the light (hopefully!) Worth a try if you haven't already.

Check the voltage output at the battery terminal for 13.8V to 14.2V.

High mileage old alternator,belt tensioner,drive belt can
reduce the output to the SRS circuit.

========

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,

SRS Light on Dash Illuminated


Sounds like either you did not connect the seat belt restraint wiring when the seats where put back in. This is a common problem. You will need to look under the seat and make sure that there are no loose wiring at all. The SRS is for the seatbelts.

Hi:

The SRS light is the air bag system, or supplemental restraint system. It is possible that it could just be on If you have had maintenance done on your car recently, but your airbag system is inoperative till you get the system reset.

How do you turn off the airbag light on the right side of a 1999 volvo s80?


According to the manual, that warning light will illuminate if a fault is detected. Normally, the SRS warning lamp should light up when the ignition key is turned to positions I, II or III and should
go out after 7 seconds or when the engine is started.

· If the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) warning light stays on after the engine has started or if it comes on while you are driving,
drive the car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for inspection as soon as possible.

Hope this helps.

SRS light stays on


I have 2002 Odyssey( 59000 miles without warranty). Several months ago the SRS light stayed on after I started the car. Some people said the dealers usually charge $ 80 to 95 to reset the light. Today I sent the car to dealer. After checking the car, they told me the car is under warranty, the parts and repairing are free.
