Introduction
Important information
Shiftlock (automatic transmission)
Fuel filler cap
Vehicle event data (Black box)
When your vehicle is parked, the gear selector
is locked in the P (Park) position. To release the
selector from this position, turn the ignition key
to position II (or start the engine), depress the
brake pedal, press the button on the front side
of the gear selector and move the selector from
P (Park).
The fuel filler door, located on the right rear
quarter panel, is connected to your vehicle's
central locking system.
Your vehicle's driving and safety systems
employ computers that monitor, and share
with each other, information about your vehicle's operation. One or more of these computers may store what they monitor, either during
normal vehicle operation or in a crash or nearcrash event. Stored information may be read
and used by:
Keylock (automatic transmission)
When you switch off the ignition, the gear
selector must be in the P (Park) position before
the remote key can be removed from the ignition switch.
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
The ABS system in your vehicle performs a
self-diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph
(20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several
times and a sound may be audible from the
ABS control module. This is normal.
Fuel filler door
Press the button on the light switch panel (see
the illustration on page 66) when the vehicle
is at a standstill to unlock the fuel filler door.
Please note that the fuel filler door will remain
unlocked until the vehicle begins to move forward. An audible click will be heard when the
fuel filler door relocks.
Points to keep in mind
• Do not export your Volvo to another country before investigating that country's
applicable safety and exhaust emission
requirements. In some cases it may be difficult or impossible to comply with these
requirements. Modifications to the emission control system(s) may render your
Volvo not certifiable for legal operation in
the U.S., Canada and other countries.
• All information, illustrations and specifications contained in this manual are based on

Introduction
Environment
Volvo and the environment
Volvo is committed to the well being of its customers. As a natural part of this commitment,
we care about the environment in which we all
live. Caring for the environment means an
everyday involvement in reducing our environmental impact. Volvo's environmental activities
are based on a holistic view, which means we
consider the overall environmental impact of a
product throughout its complete life cycle. In
this context, design, production, product use,
and recycling are all important considerations.
In production, Volvo has partly or completely
phased out several chemicals including CFCs,
lead chromates, asbestos, and cadmium; and
reduced the number of chemicals used in our
plants 50% since 1991.
Volvo was the first in the world to introduce into
production a three-way catalytic converter with
a Lambda sond, now called the heated oxygen
sensor, in 1976. The current version of this
highly efficient system reduces emissions of
harmful substances (CO, HC, NOx) from the
exhaust pipe by approximately 95 – 99% and
the search to eliminate the remaining emissions continues. Volvo is the only automobile
manufacturer to offer CFC-free retrofit kits for
the air conditioning system of all models as far
back as the 1975 model 240. Advanced electronic engine controls and cleaner fuels are
bringing us closer to our goal. In addition to
continuous environmental refinement of conventional gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, Volvo is actively looking at
advanced technology alternative-fuel vehicles.
When you drive a Volvo, you become our partner in the work to lessen the car's impact on
the environment. To reduce your vehicle's
environmental impact, you can:
• Maintain proper air pressure in your tires.
Tests have shown decreased fuel economy with improperly inflated tires.
• Follow the recommended maintenance
schedule in your Warranty and Service
Records Information booklet.
• Drive at a constant speed whenever possible.
• See a trained and qualified Volvo service
technician as soon as possible for inspection if the check engine (malfunction indicator) light illuminates, or stays on after the
vehicle has started.
• Properly dispose of any vehicle-related
waste such as used motor oil, used batteries, brake pads, etc.
• When cleaning your vehicle, please use
genuine Volvo car care products. All Volvo
car care products are formulated to be
environmentally friendly.

Recycling
As part of Volvo’s commitment to the environment, it is essential for the vehicle to be recycled in an environmentally sound way. Almost
the entire vehicle can be recycled and for that
reason, the vehicle’s final owner is requested
to contact a Volvo retailer for information about
approved and certified recycling facilities.
Introduction
Important warnings
Driver distraction
A driver has a responsibility to do everything
possible to ensure his or her own safety and
the safety of passengers in the vehicle and others sharing the roadway. Avoiding distractions
is part of that responsibility.
Driver distraction results from driver activities
that are not directly related to controlling the
vehicle in the driving environment. Your new
Volvo is, or can be, equipped with many feature-rich entertainment and communication
systems. These include hands-free cellular telephones, navigation systems, and multipurpose audio systems. You may also own other
portable electronic devices for your own convenience. When used properly and safely, they
enrich the driving experience. Improperly used,
any of these could cause a distraction.
For all of these systems, we want to provide the
following warning that reflects the strong Volvo
concern for your safety. Never use these devices or any feature of your vehicle in a way that
distracts you from the task of driving safely.
Distraction can lead to a serious accident. In
addition to this general warning, we offer the
following guidance regarding specific newer
features that may be found in your vehicle
• Never use a hand-held cellular telephone
while driving. Some jurisdictions prohibit
cellular telephone use by a driver while the
vehicle is moving.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, set and make changes to your
travel itinerary only with the vehicle parked.
• Never program your audio system while
the vehicle is moving. Program radio presets with the vehicle parked, and use your
programmed presets to make radio use
quicker and simpler.
• Never use portable computers or personal
digital assistants while the vehicle is moving.
Accessory installation
• We strongly recommend that Volvo owners
install only genuine, Volvo-approved
accessories, and that accessory installations be performed only by a trained and
qualified Volvo service technician.
• Accessories that have not been approved
by Volvo may or may not be specifically
tested for compatibility with your vehicle.
Additionally, an inexperienced installer
may not be familiar with some of your car's
systems.
• Any of your car's performance and safety
systems could be adversely affected if you
install accessories that Volvo has not tested, or if you allow accessories to be installed by someone unfamiliar with your vehicle.
• Damage caused by unapproved or
improperly installed accessories may not
be covered by your new vehicle warranty.
See your Warranty and Service Records
Information booklet for more warranty
information. Volvo assumes no responsibility for death, injury, or expenses that
may result from the installation of non-genuine accessories.
• Genuine Volvo accessories are tested to
ensure compatibility with the performance,
safety, and emission systems in your vehicle. Additionally, a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician knows where
accessories may and may not be safely
installed in your Volvo. In all cases, please
consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician before installing any accessory in or on your vehicle.

Occupant safety
Volvo's concern for safety
Safety is Volvo's cornerstone. Our concern
dates back to 1927 when the first Volvo rolled
off the production line. Three-point seat belts
(a Volvo invention), safety cages, and energyabsorbing impact zones were designed into
Volvo cars long before it was fashionable or
required by government regulation.
We will not compromise our commitment to
safety. We continue to seek out new safety
features and to refine those already in our cars.
You can help. We would appreciate hearing
your suggestions about improving automobile
safety. We also want to know if you ever have
a safety concern with your car. Call us in the
U.S. at: 1-800-458-1552 or in Canada at:
1-800-663-8255.
Occupant safety reminders
How safely you drive doesn't depend on how
old you are but rather on:
• How well you see.
• Your ability to concentrate.
• How quickly you make decisions under
stress to avoid an accident.
The following suggestions are intended to help
you cope with the ever changing traffic environment.
• Never drink and drive.
• If you are taking any medication, consult
your physician about its potential effects
on your driving abilities.
• Take a driver-retraining course.
• Have your eyes checked regularly.
• Keep your windshield and headlights
clean.
• Replace wiper blades when they start to
leave streaks.
• Take into account the traffic, road, and
weather conditions, particularly with
regard to stopping distance.

Seat belts
Using seat belts
tain impacts from the rear. The front seat belts
also include a tension reducing device which,
in the event of a collision, limits the peak forces
exerted by the seat belt on the occupant.
Buckling a seat belt
Pull the belt out far enough to insert the latch
plate into the receptacle until a distinct click is
heard. The seat belt retractor is normally
"unlocked" and you can move freely, provided
that the shoulder belt is not pulled out too far.
G020104
NOTE
The seat belt is easiest to reach by grasping
it near the lower seat belt guide, not over the
shoulder.
Adjusting the seat belt
Seat belts should always be worn by all occupants of your vehicle. Children should be properly restrained, using an infant, car, or booster
seat determined by age, weight and height.
Volvo also believes no child should sit in the
front seat of a vehicle.
Most states and provinces make it mandatory
for occupants of a vehicle to use seat belts.
Seat belt pretensioners
The seat belt retractor will lock up in the following situations:
•
•
•
•
•
if the belt is pulled out rapidly
during braking and acceleration
if the vehicle is leaning excessively
when driving in turns
if the Automatic Locking Retractor/Emergency Locking Retractor (ALR/ELR) is activated
All seat belts are equipped with pretensioners
that reduce slack in the belts. These pretensioners are triggered in situations where the
front or side impact airbags deploy, and in cerI

NOTE
Each seat belt (except for the driver's belt)
is equipped with the ALR/ELR function,
which is designed to help keep the seat belt
taut. ALR/ELR activates if the seat belt is
pulled out as far as possible. If this is done,
a sound from the seat belt retractor will be
audible, which is normal, and the seat belt
will be pulled taut and locked in place. This
function is automatically disabled when the
seat belt is unbuckled and fully retracted.
See also page 39 for information about using
a seat belt's ALR/ELR function to anchor a
child seat.
When wearing the seat belt remember:
• The belt should not be twisted or turned.
• The lap section of the belt must be positioned low on the hips (not pressing against
the abdomen).
• Make sure that the shoulder belt is rolled
up into its retractor and that the shoulder
and lap belts are taut.
Unbuckling the seat belt
• To remove the seat belt, press the red section on the seat belt receptacle. Before
exiting the vehicle, check that the seat belt
retracts fully after being unbuckled. If necessary, guide the belt back into the retractor slot.
01 Safety
Seat belts
WARNING
Seat belt guides
01
Seat belt use during pregnancy
Never use a seat belt for more than one
occupant. Never wear the shoulder portion
of the belt under the arm, behind the back
or otherwise out of position. Such use could
cause injury in the event of an accident. As
seat belts lose much of their strength when
exposed to violent stretching, they should
be replaced after any collision, even if they
appear to be undamaged.
•
Any device used to induce slack into the
shoulder belt portion of the three-point
belt system will have a detrimental
effect on the amount of protection available to you in the event of a collision.
•
The seat back should not be tilted too
far back. The shoulder belt must be taut
in order to function properly.
•
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend
that children who have outgrown these
devices sit in the rear seat with the seat
belt properly fastened.
Seat belt guides (on both front seats)
These guides are designed to help provide
easier access to the seat belts. A belt can be
taken out of the guide and slid to the rearmost
part of the lower seat belt anchorage rod to
make it easier for passengers to enter or exit
the rear seat.
G020105
Never repair the belt yourself; have this
work done by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician only.
G020106
WARNING
•
The seat belt should always be worn during

SRS warning light
As an enhancement to the three-point seat
belts, your Volvo is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). Volvo's SRS
consists of seat belt pretensioners, front airbags, side impact airbags, the occupant
weight sensor, and door-mounted inflatable
curtains. All of these systems are monitored by
the SRS control module. An SRS warning light
in the instrument panel (see the illustration) illuminates when the ignition key is turned to position I, II, or III, and will normally go out after
approximately 7 seconds if no faults are
detected in the system.
•
If the SRS warning light stays on after
the engine has started or if it illuminates
while you are driving, have the vehicle
inspected by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician as soon as
possible.
Never try to repair any component or
part of the SRS yourself. Any interference in the system could cause malfunction and serious injury. All work on
these systems should be performed by
a trained and qualified Volvo service
technician.
01
WARNING
If your vehicle has been subjected to flood
conditions (e.g. soaked carpeting/standing
water on the floor of the vehicle) or if your
vehicle has become flood-damaged in any
way, do not attempt to start the vehicle or
put the key in the ignition before disconnecting the battery (see below). This may
cause airbag deployment which could result
in personal injury. Have the vehicle towed to
a trained and qualified Volvo service technician for repairs.
Automatic transmission
Before attempting to tow the vehicle, use
the following procedure to override the
shiftlock system to move the gear selector
to the neutral position:
1. Switch off the ignition for at least
10 minutes and disconnect the battery.
2. Wait at least one minute.
3. Insert the key in the ignition and turn it
to position II.
4. Press firmly on the brake pedal.
5. Move the gear selector from Park (P) to
the Neutral (N) position, see page 152,

Supplemental Restraint System
• The driver's side front airbag is folded and
The front airbag system
located in the steering wheel hub.
• The passenger's side front airbag is folded
behind a panel located above the glove
compartment.
The front airbags supplement the three-point
seat belts. For these airbags to provide the
protection intended, seat belts must be worn
at all times.
The front airbag system includes gas generators surrounded by the airbags, and deceleration sensors that activate the gas generators,
causing the airbags to be inflated with nitrogen
gas.
Location of the passenger's side front airbag
As the movement of the seats' occupants compresses the airbags, some of the gas is expelled at a controlled rate to provide better cushioning. Both seat belt pretensioners also
deploy, minimizing seat belt slack. The entire
process, including inflation and deflation of the
airbags, takes approximately one fifth of a second.
The location of the front airbags is indicated by
SRS AIRBAG embossed on the steering wheel
pad and above the glove compartment, and by
decals on both sun visors and on the front and
far right side of the dash.

The airbags in the vehicle are designed
to be a SUPPLEMENT to-not a replacement for-the three-point seat belts. For
maximum protection, wear seat belts at
all times. Be aware that no system can
prevent all possible injuries that may
occur in an accident.
•
Never drive a vehicle with your hands on
the steering wheel pad/airbag housing.
•
The front airbags are designed to help
prevent serious injury. Deployment
occurs very quickly and with considerable force. During normal deployment
and depending on variables such as
seating position, one may experience
abrasions, bruises, swellings, or other
injuries as a result from deployment of
one or both of the airbags.
•
When installing any accessory equipment, make sure that the front airbag
system is not damaged. Any interference in the system could cause malfunction.

WARNING
01 Safety
Supplemental Restraint System
Front airbag deployment
• The front airbags are designed to deploy
during certain frontal or front-angular collisions, impacts, or decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and
object impacted. The airbags may also
deploy in certain non-frontal collisions
where rapid deceleration occurs.
•
• The SRS sensors, which trigger the front
airbags, are designed to react to both the
impact of the collision and the inertial
forces generated by it, and to determine if
the intensity of the collision is sufficient for
the seat belt pretensioners and/or airbags
to be deployed.
However, not all frontal collisions activate the
front airbags.
• If the collision involves a nonrigid object
(e.g., a snow drift or bush), or a rigid, fixed
object at a low speed, the front airbags will
not necessarily deploy.
• Front airbags do not normally deploy in a
side impact collision, in a collision from the
rear or in a rollover situation.
• The amount of damage to the bodywork
does not reliably indicate if the airbags
should have deployed or not.
•
•
NOTE
Volvo Cars of North America, LLC
Deployment of front airbags occurs only
one time during an accident. In a collision where deployment occurs, the airbags and seat belt pretensioners activate. Some noise occurs and a small
amount of powder is released. The
release of the powder may appear as
smoke-like matter. This is a normal
characteristic and does not indicate fire.
Customer Care Center
Volvo's front airbags use special sensors that are integrated with the front
seat buckles. The point at which the airbag deploys is determined by whether
or not the seat belt is being used, as well
as the severity of the collision.
Collisions can occur where only one of
the airbags deploys. If the impact is less
severe, but severe enough to present a
clear injury risk, the airbags are triggered at partial capacity. If the impact is
more severe, the airbags are triggered
at full capacity.

Child safety
Children should be seated safely
Volvo recommends the proper use of restraint
systems for all occupants including children.
Remember that, regardless of age and size, a
child should always be properly restrained in a
car.
Your car is also equipped with ISOFIX/LATCH
attachments, which make it more convenient
to install child seats.
Some restraint systems for children are
designed to be secured in the vehicle by lap
belts or the lap portion of a lap-shoulder belt.
Such child restraint systems can help protect
children in cars in the event of an accident only
if they are used properly. However, children
could be endangered in a crash if the child
restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Failure to follow the installation instructions
for your child restraint can result in your child
striking the vehicle's interior in a sudden stop.
Holding a child in your arms is NOT a suitable
substitute for a child restraint system. In an
accident, a child held in a person's arms can
be crushed between the vehicle's interior and
an unrestrained person. The child could also be
injured by striking the interior, or by being ejected from the vehicle during a sudden maneuver
or impact. The same can also happen if the
infant or child rides unrestrained on the seat.
Other occupants should also be properly
restrained to help reduce the chance of injuring
or increasing the injury of a child.
All states and provinces have legislation governing how and where children should be carried in a car. Find out the regulations existing
in your state or province. Recent accident statistics have shown that children are safer in rear
seating positions than front seating positions
when properly restrained. A child restraint system can help protect a child in a vehicle. Here's
what to look for when selecting a child restraint
system:
• It should have a label certifying that it
meets applicable Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards (FMVSS 213) – or in Canada, CMVSS 213.
• Make sure the child restraint system is
approved for the child's height, weight and
development – the label required by the
standard or regulation, or instructions for
infant restraints, typically provide this information.
• In using any child restraint system, we urge
you to carefully look over the instructions
that are provided with the restraint. Be sure
you understand them and can use the
device properly and safely in this vehicle.
A misused child restraint system can result
in increased injuries for both the infant or
child and other occupants in the vehicle.

When a child has outgrown the child safety
seat, you should use the rear seat with the
standard seat belt fastened. The best way to
help protect the child here is to place the child
on a cushion so that the seat belt is properly
located on the hips (see the illustration on page
46). Legislation in your state or province may
mandate the use of a child seat or cushion in
combination with the seat belt, depending on
the child's age and/or size. Please check local
regulations.
A specially designed and tested booster cushion and backrest can be obtained from your
Volvo retailer.
USA: for children weighing 33–80 lbs. (15–
36 kg) and 38–54 inches (97–137 cm) in height
Canada: for children weighing 40–80 lbs. (18–
36 kg) and 40–54 inches (102–137 cm) in height
WARNING
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend that
children under 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) in
height who have outgrown these devices sit
in the rear seat with the seat belt fastened.
01 Safety
Child safety
Automatic Locking Retractor/
Emergency Locking Retractor (ALR/
ELR)
To make child seat installation easier, each
seat belt (except for the driver's belt) is equipped with a locking mechanism to help keep the
seat belt taut.
When attaching the seat belt to a child
seat:
1. Attach the seat belt to the child seat
according to the child seat manufacturer's
instructions.
2. Pull the seat belt out as far as possible.
3. Insert the seat belt latch plate into the
buckle (lock) in the usual way.
4. Release the seat belt and pull it taut around
the child seat.
A sound from the seat belt retractor will be
audible at this time and is normal. The belt will
now be locked in place. This function is automatically disabled when the seat belt is
unlocked and the belt is fully retracted.
WARNING
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend that
children who have outgrown these devices
sit in the rear seat with the seat belt properly
fastened.
Volvo's recommendations
Why does Volvo believe that no child should sit
in the front seat of a car? It's quite simple really.
A front airbag is a very powerful device
designed, by law, to help protect an adult.
01
Volvo recommends that you do not disconnect the airbag system in your vehicle.
• Volvo strongly recommends that everyone
in the vehicle be properly restrained.
• Volvo recommends that ALL occupants
(adults and children) shorter than 4 feet
7 inches (140 cm) be seated in the back
seat of any vehicle with a front passenger
side airbag.
• Drive safely!
Because of the size of the airbag and its speed
of inflation, a child should never be placed in
the front seat, even if he or she is properly belted or strapped into a child safety seat. Volvo
has been an innovator in safety for over seventy-five years, and we'll continue to do our
part. But we need your help. Please remember
to put your children in the back seat, and
buckle them up.
Volvo has some very specific
recommendations:
• Always wear your seat belt.
• Airbags are a SUPPLEMENTAL safety
device which, when used with a threepoint seat belt can help reduce serious
injuries during certain types of accidents.

HomeLink® Wireless Control System*
Introduction
WARNING
•
The HomeLink1 Wireless Control System provides a convenient way to replace up to three
hand-held radio-frequency (RF) transmitters
used to activate devices such as gate operators, garage door openers, entry door locks,
security systems, even home lighting. Additional HomeLink information can be found on
the Internet at www.homelink.com.
1
If you use HomeLink to open a garage
door or gate, be sure no one is near the
gate or door while it is in motion.
•
When programming a garage door
opener, it is advised to park outside of
the garage.
•
Do not use HomeLink with any garage
door opener that lacks safety stop and
reverse features as required by U.S.
federal safety standards (this includes
any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage
door that cannot detect an object - signaling the door to stop and reverse does not meet current U.S. federal
safety standards. For more information,
contact HomeLink at:
www.homelink.com.
G030070
02
Retain the original transmitter of the RF device
you are programming for use in other vehicles
as well as for future HomeLink programming. It
is also suggested that upon the sale of the
vehicle, the programmed HomeLink buttons be
erased for security purposes. Refer to “Erasing
HomeLink Buttons”.

Programming HomeLink
NOTE
Some vehicles may require the ignition
switch to be turned on or to the second
(“accessories”) position for programming
and/or operation of HomeLink. It is also recommended that a new battery be placed in
the hand-held transmitter of the device
being programmed to HomeLink for quicker
training and accurate transmission of the
radio-frequency signal.
1. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1–3 inches (5–14 cm) away from the
HomeLink button you wish to program
while keeping the indicator light in view.
2. Simultaneously press and hold both the
chosen HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons until the HomeLink indicator
light changes from a slow to a rapidly blinking light. Now you may release both the
HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons.
02 Instruments and controls
HomeLink® Wireless Control System*
NOTE
Some devices may require you to replace
this Programming Step 2 with procedures
noted in the “Gate Operator / Canadian Programming” section. If the HomeLink indicator light does not change to a rapidly blinking light after performing these steps, contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com.
3. Firmly press, hold for five seconds and
release the programmed HomeLink button up to two separate times to activate the
door. If the door does not activate, press
and hold the just-trained HomeLink button
and observe the indicator light.
• If the indicator light stays on constantly, programming is complete
and your device should activate when
the HomeLink button is pressed and
released.
• If the indicator light blinks rapidly for
two seconds and then turns to a constant light continue with “Programming” steps 4-6 to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped
device (most commonly a garage door
opener).
4. At the garage door opener receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the “learn”
or “smart” button. This can usually be
found where the hanging antenna wire is
attached to the motor-head unit.
5. Firmly press and release the “learn” or
“smart” button. (The name and color of the
button may vary by manufacturer.) There
are 30 seconds to initiate step 6.
6. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold
for two seconds and release the programmed HomeLink button. Repeat the
“press/hold/release” sequence a second
time, and, depending on the brand of the
garage door opener (or other rolling code
equipped device), repeat this sequence a
third time to complete the programming
process.
HomeLink should now activate your rolling
code equipped device.
Gate Operator/Canadian Programming
Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to “time-out” (or quit) after several seconds of transmission – which may not
be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the
signal during programming. Similar to this
Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are
designed to “time-out” in the same manner.
cedures, replace “Programming HomeLink”
step 2 with the following:
• Continue to press and hold the HomeLink
02
button while you press and release every two seconds (“cycle”) your handheld transmitter until the HomeLink indicator light changes from a slow to a rapidly
blinking light. Now you may release both
the HomeLink and hand-held transmitter
buttons.
Proceed with “Programming” step 3 to complete.
Using HomeLink
To operate, simply press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Activation will
now occur for the trained device (i.e., garage
door opener, gate operator, security system,
entry door lock, home/office lighting, etc.). For
convenience, the hand-held transmitter of the
device may also be used at any time. In the
event that there are still programming difficulties or questions, contact HomeLink at:
www.homelink.com.
If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator or garage
door opener by using the “Programming” pro-

Air conditioning – A/C
Fog on the inside of the windows
Passenger compartment filter
Your car is equipped with a climate control
system that includes either manually adjustable air conditioning or optional Electronic Climate Control (ECC).
The defroster function should be used to
remove fog or mist from the inside of the windows. Keeping the windows clean with a commercially available window washing spray will
also help prevent fogging or misting
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at
the recommended intervals. Please refer to
your Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, or consult a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for these intervals.
The filter should be replaced more often when
driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The
filter cannot be cleaned and therefore should
always be replaced with a new one.
The air conditioning system can be switched
off, but for optimal air quality in the passenger
compartment and to prevent the windows from
fogging, the air conditioning should be left on
– even in cool weather.
NOTE
In warm weather, a small amount of water
may accumulate under the car when it has
been parked. This water is condensation
from the A/C system and is normal.
Ice and snow
Always keep the air intake grille at the base of
the windshield free of snow.
Climate control maintenance
Special tools and equipment are required to
maintain and carry out repairs on the climate
system. Work of this type should only be done
by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
NOTE
There are different types of cabin air filters.
Ensure that the correct type is installed.
Refrigerant
Volvo cares about the environment. The air
conditioning system in your car contains a
CFC-free refrigerant – R134a. This substance
will not deplete the ozone layer. The system
contains 1.2 lbs (530 g) R134a (HFC 134a), and
uses PAG oil.
Display
The display above the climate control panel
shows the climate settings that have been
made.
Personal settings
There are two functions in the climate system
that can be set to your preferences:
• Blower speed to Auto mode (models with
ECC only).
• Timer controlled recirculation of the air in
the passenger compartment.

3. Recirculation
03
This function can be used to
shut out exhaust fumes,
smoke, etc from the passenger compartment. The air in
the passenger compartment
is then recirculated, i.e. no air
from outside the car is taken
into the car when this function is activated.
If the air in the car recirculates for too long,
there is a risk of condensation forming on the
insides of the windows, especially in winter.
Timer
The timer function minimizes the risk of fogging
or stale air when the recirculation function is
selected, see page 80 for information on setting the recirculation timer.
NOTE
Recirculation is always disengaged if the
defroster button is engaged to clear ice or
condensation from the side windows.

06 Starting and driving
General information
Economical driving conserves natural
resources
Better driving economy may be obtained by
thinking ahead, avoiding rapid starts and stops
and adjusting the speed of your vehicle to
immediate traffic conditions.
• At highway driving speeds, fuel consumption will be lower with the air conditioning
on and the windows closed than with the
air conditioning off and the windows open.
• Using the onboard trip computer's fuel
consumption modes can help you learn
how to drive more economically.
Observe the following rules:
• Bring the engine to normal operating temperature as soon as possible by driving
with a light foot on the accelerator pedal for
the first few minutes of operation. A cold
engine uses more fuel and is subject to
increased wear.
•
Whenever possible, avoid using the vehicle
for driving short distances. This does not
allow the engine to reach normal operating
temperature.
• Drive carefully and avoid rapid acceleration

• Use the transmission's Drive (D) position

•
Dirty air cleaner
Dirty engine oil and clogged oil filter
Dragging brakes
Incorrect front end alignment
Some of the above mentioned items and others
are checked at the standard maintenance
intervals.
WARNING
Driving with the trunk open: Driving with
the trunk open could lead to poisonous
exhaust gases entering the passenger compartment. If the trunk must be kept open for
any reason, proceed as follows:
1. Close the windows.
2. Set the ventilation system control to air
flow to floor, windshield and side windows and the blower control to its highest setting.
ice has ended.
Weight distribution affects handling
At the specified curb weight your vehicle has a
tendency to understeer, which means that the
steering wheel has to be turned more than
might seem appropriate for the curvature of a
bend. This ensures good stability and reduces
the risk of rear wheel skid. Remember that
these properties can alter with the vehicle load.
The heavier the load in the cargo area, the less
the tendency to understeer.
Handling, roadholding
Vehicle load, tire design and inflation pressure
all affect vehicle handling. Therefore, check
that the tires are inflated to the recommended
pressure according to the vehicle load. See the
"Tire pressure" section. Loads should be distributed so that capacity weight or maximum
permissible axle loads are not exceeded.
Driving through water
The vehicle can be driven through water up to
a depth of approximately 9 in. (25 cm), at a
maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h).
• Take particular care when driving through
flowing water.
• Clean the electrical connections for trailer
wiring after driving in mud or water
• When driving through water, maintain low
speed and do not stop in the water.

General information
WARNING
After driving through water, press lightly on
the brake pedal to ensure that the brakes
are functioning normally. Water or mud can
make the brake linings slippery, resulting in
delayed braking effect.
CAUTION
•
Engine damage will occur if water is
drawn into the air cleaner.
•
If the vehicle is driven through water
deeper than 9 in. (25 cm), water may
enter the differential and the transmission. This reduces the oil's lubricating
capacity and may shorten the service
life of these components.
•
•
1
Do not allow the vehicle to stand in
water up to the door sills longer than
absolutely necessary. This could result
in electrical malfunctions.
If the engine has been stopped while the
car is in water, do not attempt to restart
the engine. Have the car towed out of
the water.
Cold weather precautions
If you wish to check your vehicle before the
approach of cold weather, the following advice
is worth noting:
• Make sure that the engine coolant contains
50 percent antifreeze. Any other mixture
will reduce freeze protection. This gives
protection against freezing down to –31 °F
(–35 °C). See section "Coolant". The use of
"recycled" antifreeze is not approved by
Volvo. Different types of antifreeze must
not be mixed.
• Volvo recommends using only genuine
Volvo antifreeze in your vehicle's radiator.
Your Volvo retailer stocks plenty of Volvo
engine coolant to help protect your vehicle
during cold weather.
• Try to keep the fuel tank well filled – this
prevents the formation of condensation in
the tank. In addition, in extremely cold
weather conditions it is worthwhile to add
fuel line de-icer before refueling.
• The viscosity of the engine oil is important.
Oil with low viscosity (thinner oil) improves
cold-weather starting as well as decreasing fuel consumption while the engine is
warming up. For winter use, 5W-30 oil, particularly the synthetic type1, is recommended. Be sure to use good quality oil but
do not use cold-weather oil for hard driving
or in warm weather, see page 274 for more
information.
• The load placed on the battery is greater
during the winter since the windshield wipers, lighting, etc. are used more often.
Moreover, the capacity of the battery
decreases as the temperature drops. In
very cold weather, a poorly charged battery can freeze and be damaged. It is therefore advisable to check the state of charge
more frequently and spray an anti-rust oil
on the battery posts.
• Volvo recommends the use of snow tires
on all four wheels for winter driving – see
the chapter "Wheels and tires."
• To prevent the washer fluid reservoir from
freezing, add washer solvents containing
antifreeze (see page 218 for the location of
the washer fluid reservoir). This is important since dirt is often splashed on the
windshield during winter driving, requiring
the frequent use of the washers and wipers. Volvo Washer Solvent should be diluted as follows: Down to 14 °F (–10 °C):
1 part washer solvent and 4 parts water
Down to 5 °F (–15 °C): 1 part washer solvent and 3 parts water Down to 0 °F
(–18 °C): 1 part washer solvent and 2 parts

Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at owner request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.

ing the ignition key to position II. Many
electrical systems (the audio system, the
optional navigation system, power windows, etc) will function with the ignition key
in position I. This position reduces drain on
the battery.
• Please keep in mind that using systems,
accessories, etc that consume a great deal
of current when the engine is not running
could result in the battery being completely
drained. Driving or having the engine running for approximately 15 minutes will help
keep the battery charged.
•
If the ignition is switched on, a warning
message will be displayed in the text
window in the instrument panel when
the battery charge is low.
An energy conserving function
designed into the vehicle's electrical
system will switch off certain functions
or reduce the load on the battery by,
e.g., reducing the audio system's volume.
Before a long distance trip
It is always worthwhile to have your vehicle
checked at a trained and qualified Volvo service technician before driving long distances.
Your trained and qualified Volvo service technician will also be able to supply you with
bulbs, fuses, spark plugs and wiper blades for
your use in the event that problems occur.
• Check that engine runs smoothly and that
fuel consumption is normal.
•
•
•
•
•
Check for fuel, oil, and fluid leakage
Have the transmission oil level checked2.
Check condition of drive belts.
Check state of the battery's charge.
Examine tires carefully (the spare tire as
well), and replace those that are worn.
Check tire pressures.
• The brakes, front wheel alignment, and
steering gear should be checked by your
Volvo retailer only.
• Check all lights, including high beams.
• Reflective warning triangles are legally
required in some states/provinces.
• Have a word with your Volvo retailer if you
intend to drive in countries where it may be
difficult to obtain the correct fuel.
• Consider your destination. If you will be
driving through an area where snow or ice
are likely to occur, consider snow tires.
As a minimum, the following items should be
checked before any long trip:
• The optional 12 volt socket in the trunk

Typical pump octane label
Volvo recommends premium fuel for best performance, but using 87 octane1 or above will
not affect engine reliability.
Volvo engines are designed to achieve rated
horsepower, torque, and fuel economy performance using premium 91 octane fuel.
Demanding driving
In demanding driving conditions, such as operating the vehicle in hot weather, towing a trailer,
or driving for extended periods at higher altitudes than normal, it may be advisable to
switch to higher octane fuel (91 or higher) or to

Do not use gasoline that contains lead as a
knock inhibitor, and do not use lead additives.
Besides damaging the exhaust emission control systems on your vehicle, lead has been
strongly linked to certain forms of cancer.
Many fuels contain benzene as a solvent.
Unburned benzene has been strongly linked to
certain forms of cancer. If you live in an area
where you must fill your own gas tank, take
precautions. These may include:
• standing upwind away from the filler nozzle
while refueling
• refueling only at gas stations with vapor
Use of Additives
With the exception of gas line antifreeze during
winter months, do not add solvents, thickeners, or other store-bought additives to your
vehicle's fuel, cooling, or lubricating systems.
Overuse may damage your engine, and some
of these additives contain organically volatile
chemicals. Do not needlessly expose yourself
to these chemicals.
WARNING
Never carry a cell phone that is switched
on while refueling your vehicle. If the phone
rings, this may cause a spark that could
ignite gasoline fumes, resulting in fire and
injury.
WARNING
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, colorless,
and odorless gas. It is present in all exhaust
gases. If you ever smell exhaust fumes
inside the vehicle, make sure the passenger
compartment is ventilated, and immediately
return the vehicle to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for correction.

Volvo recommends the use of detergent gasoline to control engine deposits. Detergent
gasoline is effective in keeping injectors and
intake valves clean. Consistent use of deposit

whether the gasoline contains deposit control
additives, check with the service station operator.

Volvo does not recommend the use of
store-bought fuel injector cleaning additives.
ness of the emission control system and could
result in loss of emission warranty coverage.
State and local vehicle inspection programs
will make detection of misfueling easier, possibly resulting in emission test failure for misfueled vehicles.
NOTE
Some U.S. and Canadian gasolines contain
an octane enhancing additive called methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl
(MMT). If such fuels are used, your Emission
Control System performance may be affected, and the Check Engine Light (malfunction indicator lamp) located on your instrument panel may light. If this occurs, please
return your vehicle to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for maintenance.
Unleaded fuel
06
Each Volvo has a three-way catalytic converter
and must use only unleaded gasoline. U.S. and
Canadian regulations require that pumps delivering unleaded gasoline be labelled "UNLEADED". Only these pumps have nozzles which
fit your vehicle's filler inlet. It is unlawful to dispense leaded fuel into a vehicle labelled
"unleaded gasoline only". Leaded gasoline
damages the three-way catalytic converter and
the heated oxygen sensor system. Repeated
use of leaded gasoline will lessen the effective-
Alcohol – Ethanol: Fuels containing up to 10%
ethanol by volume may be used. Ethanol may
also be referred to as Ethyl alcohol, or "Gasohol".
Ethers – MTBE: Fuels containing up to 15%
MTBE may be used.
Methanol
Do not use gasolines containing methanol
(methyl alcohol, wood alcohol). This practice
can result in vehicle performance deterioration
and can damage critical parts in the fuel system. Such damage may not be covered under
the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Gasoline containing alcohol and ethers
Fuel filler door
Some fuel suppliers sell gasoline containing
"oxygenates" which are usually alcohols or
ethers. In some areas, state or local laws
require that the service pump be marked indicating use of alcohols or ethers. However,
there are areas in which the pumps are
unmarked. If you are not sure whether there is
alcohol or ethers in the gasoline you buy, check
with the service station operator. To meet seasonal air quality standards, some areas require
the use of "oxygenated" fuel. Volvo allows the
Press the button on the light switch panel (see

Fuel requirements
You can also keep the vehicle locked if you
remain inside it during refueling. The central
locking button does not lock the fuel filler door.
Be sure the fuel filler door is not obstructed and
is completely closed after refueling. Open the
fuel filler cap slowly during hot weather.
CAUTION
•
Do not refuel with the engine running2.
Turn the ignition off or to position I. If the
ignition is on, an incorrect reading could
occur in the fuel gauge
•
After refueling, close the fuel filler cap
by turning it clockwise until it clicks into
place.
•
Avoid overfilling the fuel tank. Do not
press the handle on the filler nozzle
more than one extra time. Too much fuel
in the tank in hot weather conditions can
cause the fuel to overflow. Overfilling
could also cause damage to the emission control systems.
•
Avoid spilling gasoline during refueling.
In addition to causing damage to the
environment, gasolines containing
alcohol can cause damage to painted
surfaces, which may not be covered
under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Refueling
The fuel tank is designed to accommodate
possible expansion of the fuel in hot weather,
see page 273 for fuel tank volume. Be aware
that the "usable" tank capacity will be somewhat less than the specified maximum. When
the fuel level is low, such factors as ambient
temperature, the fuel's "Reid vapor pressure"
characteristics, and terrain can affect the fuel
pump's ability to supply the engine with an
adequate supply of fuel. Therefore, it is advisable to refuel as soon as possible when the
needle nears the red zone, or when the fuel
warning light comes on.

If the brake pedal must be depressed farther
than normal and requires greater foot pressure,
the stopping distance will be longer.
A warning light in the instrument panel will light

NOTE
Press the brake pedal hard and maintain
pressure on the pedal – do not pump the
brakes.
Power brakes function only when the
engine is running
The power brakes utilize vacuum pressure
which is only created when the engine is running. Never let the vehicle roll to a stop with the
engine switched off.
If the power brakes are not working, considerably higher pressure will be required on the
brake pedal to compensate for the lack of
power assistance. This can happen for example when towing your vehicle or if the engine is
switched off when the vehicle is rolling. The
brake pedal feels harder than usual.
• In the event of sudden braking while the
vehicle is moving at speeds above approximately 6 mph (10 km/h)
When the vehicle has come to a stop, the brake
lights and additional taillights remain on for as
long as the brake pedal is depressed or until
braking force on the vehicle is reduced.

Severe strain on the brake system
For optimal ABS braking effect:
The brakes will be subject to severe strain
when driving in mountains or hilly areas, or
when towing a trailer. Vehicle speed is usually
slower, which means that the cooling of the
brakes is less efficient than when driving on
level roads. To reduce the strain on the brakes,
shift into a lower gear and let the engine help
with the braking. Do not forget that if you are
towing a trailer, the brakes will be subjected to
a greater than normal load.
1. Press down on the brake pedal with full
force. The pedal will pulsate.
Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
The switching of the ABS modulator will be
audible and the brake pedal will pulsate during
braking. Please be aware that ABS does not
increase the absolute braking potential of the
vehicle. While control will be enhanced, ABS
will not shorten stopping distances on slippery
surfaces.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps to
improve vehicle control (stopping and steering)
during severe braking conditions by limiting
brake lockup. When the system "senses"
impending lockup, braking pressure is automatically modulated in order to help prevent
lockup that could lead to a skid.
The system performs a self-diagnostic test
when the engine is started and when the
vehicle first reaches a speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will
pulsate several times and a sound may be
audible from the ABS control module. This is
normal.
2. Steer the vehicle in the direction of travel
and keep the brake pedal depressed.
Electronic Brake Force Distribution
(EBD)
EBD is an integrated part of the ABS system.
EBD regulates the hydraulic pressure to the
rear brakes to help provide optimal braking
capacity.
If the warning lamp lights up there is a malfunction of the ABS system (the standard braking system will still function) and the vehicle
should be driven cautiously to a trained and
qualified Volvo service technician for inspection.

Emergency Brake Assistance – EBA
EBA is designed to provide full brake effect
immediately in the event of sudden, hard braking. The system is activated by the speed with
which the brake pedal is depressed.
When the EBA system is activated, the brake

WARNING
Towing a vehicle with a locked steering
wheel will make the vehicle impossible to
steer.
2. Insert the key into the ignition to unlock the
steering wheel. The steering wheel must be
unlocked. With the engine off and the vehicle at a standstill, great effort will be
required to turn the steering wheel.
• Keep the tow rope taut at all times while the

06
5. Keep firm pressure on the brake pedal
while releasing the parking brake.
Check with state and local authorities
before attempting this type of towing,
as vehicles being towed are subject to
regulations regarding maximum towing
speed, length and type of towing
device, lighting, marker flags, etc.
•
Never attempt to push- or tow-start a
vehicle with a dead battery. This would
inject unburned fuel into the three-way
catalytic converter(s), causing overheating, backfiring, and damage, see
page 162 for instructions on jump starting the vehicle.
WARNING
•
Never allow a vehicle to be towed without a driver behind the wheel of the disabled vehicle.
•
Never remove the key from the ignition
while the vehicle is moving. The steering
wheel could lock, making it impossible
to steer the vehicle.
•
When the engine is not running, steering
resistance and the effort needed to
apply the brakes will be great.
•
Never attempt to tow a vehicle with a
dead battery at night.
6. When towing has been completed, return
the gear selector to Park and apply the
parking brake.
Towing vehicles with front wheel drive
Volvo recommends the use of flat bed equipment for towing vehicles with front wheel drive.
If wheel lift equipment must be used, please
use extreme caution to help avoid damage to
the vehicle.
In this case, the vehicle should be towed with
the rear wheels on the ground if at all possible.
The following points should also be
observed:
If it is absolutely necessary to tow the vehicle
with the front wheels on the ground, please
refer to the towing information on the previous
page.
• Never exceed 50 mph (80 km/h). Never
exceed local towing speed limits and heed
all local towing restrictions.
• Never tow farther than 50 miles (80 km).

Towing
• Sling-type equipment applied at the front
will damage radiator and air conditioning
lines.
• It is equally important not to use sling-type
equipment at the rear or apply lifting equipment inside the rear wheels; serious damage to the rear axle may result.
• If the vehicle is being towed on a flat bed
truck, the towing eyelets must not be used
to secure the vehicle on the flat bed. Consult the tow truck operator.
WARNING
•
Remember that the power brakes and
power steering will not function when
engine is not running. The braking and
steering systems will function but considerably higher pressure will be
required on the brake pedal and greater
steering effort must be exerted.
•
The towing eyelets must not be used for
pulling the vehicle out of a ditch or for
any similar purpose involving severe
strain. Do not use the towing eyelets to
pull the vehicle up onto a flat bed tow
truck.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)*
Introduction
G020295
WARNING
BLIS camera
Indicator light
BLIS symbol
The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is an
information system that indicates the presence
of another vehicle moving in the same direction
as your vehicle in the side-view mirror's "blind
area".
CAUTION
The BLIS system should only be repaired by
a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
•
BLIS is an information system, NOT a
warning or safety system.
•
BLIS does not eliminate the need for
you to visually confirm the conditions
around you, and the need for you to turn
your head and shoulders to make sure
that you can safely change lanes.
•
As the driver, you have full responsibility
for changing lanes in a safe manner.
The system is based on digital camera technology. The cameras (1) are located beneath
the side-view mirrors.
When one (or both) of the cameras have
detected a vehicle in the blind area (up to
approximately 10 ft. (3 meters) from the side of
your vehicle, and up to approximately 31 ft.
(9.5 meters) behind the side-view mirror), the
indicator light in the door panel (2) illuminates.
The light will glow continuously to alert the
driver of the vehicle in the blind area.
NOTE
A = approx. 10 ft. (3 meters), B = approx. 31 ft.
(9.5 meters)
BLIS has an integrated function that alerts the
driver if a fault should occur with the system.
For example, if one or both of the system's
cameras are obscured, a message (see the
table on page 169) will appear in the information display in the instrument panel. If this
occurs, clean the camera lenses. If necessary,
the system can be temporarily switched off (for
instructions see page 169).
06
The door panel indicator light illuminates on
the side of the vehicle where the system has
detected another vehicle. If your vehicle is
passed on both sides at the same time, both
lights will illuminate.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)*
When does BLIS function
Darkness
The system functions when your vehicle is
moving at speeds above 6 mph (10 km/h).
BLIS reacts to the headlights of surrounding
vehicles. In order to be detected by BLIS, a
vehicle in the blind area must have its headlights on. This means, for example, that the
system will not detect a trailer without headlights that is being towed behind a car or truck.
When you pass another vehicle:
The system reacts when you pass another
vehicle at a speed of up to 6 mph (10 km/h)
faster than that vehicle.
WARNING
When you are passed by another vehicle:
The system reacts if your vehicle is passed by
another vehicle at a speed of up to 43 mph
(70 km/h) faster than your vehicle.
WARNING
06
•
•
BLIS does not function in sharp curves.
•
If you are towing a wide trailer, this may
prevent the BLIS cameras from detecting other vehicles in adjacent lanes.
•
BLIS does not react to cyclists or
mopeds.
•
BLIS does not react to vehicles that are
standing still.
•
The BLIS cameras have the same limitation as the human eye. In other words,
their "vision is impaired" by adverse
weather conditions such as heavy
snowfall, intense light directly into the
camera, dense fog, etc.
BLIS does not function when your vehicle is backing up.

General information
Introduction
Your vehicle is equipped with tires according
to the vehicle's tire information placard on the
B-pillar (the structural member at the side of
the vehicle, at the rear of the driver's door
opening).
CAUTION
Some Volvo models are equipped with an
Ultra High Performance tire and wheel combination designed to provide maximum dry
pavement performance with consideration
for hydroplaning resistance. They may be
more susceptible to road hazard damage
and, depending on driving conditions, may
achieve a tread life of less than 20,000 miles
(30,000 km). Even if this vehicle is equipped
with Volvo’s advanced DSTC system, these
tires are not designed for winter driving, and
should be replaced with winter tires when
weather conditions dictate.
07
The tires have good road holding characteristics and offer good handling on dry and wet
surfaces. It should be noted however that the
tires have been developed to give these features on snow/ice-free surfaces.
Most models are equipped with "all-season"
tires, which provide a somewhat higher degree
of road holding on slippery surfaces than tires
1
without the "all-season" rating. However, for
optimum road holding on icy or snow-covered
roads, we recommend suitable winter tires on
all four wheels.
When replacing tires, be sure that the new tires
are the same size designation, type (radial) and
preferably from the same manufacturer, on all
four wheels. Otherwise there is a risk of altering
the car's roadholding and handling characteristics.
Tires degrade over time, even when they are
not being used. It is recommended that tires
generally be replaced after 6 years of normal
service. Heat caused by hot climates, frequent
high loading conditions or Ultra Violet (U.V)
exposure can accelerate the aging process.
The temporary spare1 should also be replaced
at 6-year intervals, even if it has never been
used.
New Tires
A tire's age can be determined by the DOT
stamp on the sidewall (see the illustration).
A tire with e.g., visible cracks or discoloration
should be replaced immediately.
Improving tire economy
• Maintain correct tire pressure. For the tire
pressure tables, see page 181.
• Drive smoothly: avoid fast starts, hard
braking and tire screeching.
• Tire wear increases with speed.
• Correct front wheel alignment is very
important.
Remember that tires are perishable goods. As
of 2000, the manufacturing week and year
(Department of Transportation (DOT) stamp)
will be indicated with 4 digits (e.g., 1510 means
that the tire illustrated was manufactured during week 15 of 2010).

WARNING
•
The wheel and tire sizes for your Volvo
are specified to meet stringent stability
and handling requirements. Unapproved wheel/tire size combinations
can negatively affect your vehicle's stability and handling.
•
Any damage caused by installation of
unapproved wheel/tire size combinations will not be covered by your new
vehicle warranty. Volvo assumes no
responsibility for death, injury, or
expenses that may result from such
installations.
• The tires with the most tread should always
be at the rear (to reduce the risk of skidding).
• Contact a Volvo workshop if you are

unsure about the tread depth.
Storing wheels and tires
When storing complete wheels (tires mounted
on rims), they should be suspended off the
floor or placed on their sides on the floor.
Tires not mounted on rims should be stored on
their sides or standing upright, but should not
be suspended.

CAUTION
The arrows shows the direction of rotation of the

Tires should preferably be stored in a cool,
dry, dark place, and should never be stored
in close proximity to solvents, gasoline, oils,
etc.
Tire rotation
Tire wear is affected by a number of factors
such as tire inflation, ambient temperature,
driving style, etc. Your vehicle is driven mainly
by the front tires, which will wear faster.
If the tires are rotated, they should only be
moved from front to back or vice versa. They
should never be rotated left to right/right to left.
• When switching between summer and
winter tires, mark the tires to indicate
where they were mounted on the car, e.g.,
LF = left front, RR = right rear
07
However, tire rotation, done at the recommended intervals, is one way of helping to keep
tread wear as even as possible and will help
you get maximum mileage from your tires.
• Tires with tread designed to roll in only one
direction are marked with an arrow on the
sidewall.

General information
Ideally, tire rotation should be done the first
time after approximately 3,000 miles
(5, 000 km) and thereafter at 6,000 mile
(10,000 km) intervals.
Tread wear indicator
Tire rotation should only be performed if front/
rear tire wear is fairly even and tread height is
above 1/16" (1.6 mm).
NOTE
Your Volvo retailer can also provide guidance
based on your particular driving circumstances.
07
G020323
Tire rotation is not included in regularly
scheduled maintenance and is performed
only at customer request, at additional
charge.
The tires have wear indicator strips running
across or parallel to the tread. The letters TWI
are printed on the side of the tire. When
approximately 1/16" (1.6 mm) is left on the
tread, these strips become visible and indicate
that the tire should be replaced. Tires with less
than 1/16" (1.6 mm) tread offer very poor traction.
When replacing worn tires, it is recommended
that the tire be identical in type (radial) and size
as the one being replaced. Using a tire of the
same make (manufacturer) will prevent alteration of the driving characteristics of the vehicle.

Use a tire gauge to check the tire inflation pressure, including the spare, at least once a month
and before long trips. You are strongly urged
to buy a reliable tire pressure gauge, as automatic service station gauges may be inaccurate.

Use the recommended cold inflation pressure
for optimum tire performance and wear.
Under-inflation or over-inflation may cause
uneven treadwear patterns.
Check tire inflation pressure regularly.
Tables listing the recommended inflation pressure for your vehicle can be found beginning
on page 181. A tire inflation pressure placard
is also located on the driver's side B-pillar (the
structural member at the side of the vehicle, at
the rear of the driver's door opening). This placard indicates the designation of the factorymounted tires on your vehicle, as well as load
limits and inflation pressure.
WARNING
•
•
Under-inflation is the most common
cause of tire failure and may result in
severe tire cracking, tread separation,
or "blowout," with unexpected loss of
vehicle control and increased risk of
injury.
Under-inflated tires reduce the load carrying capacity of your vehicle.
When weather temperature changes occur, tire
inflation pressures also change. A 10-degree
temperature drop causes a corresponding
drop of 1 psi (7 kPa) in inflation pressure. Check
I

dedby:
your tire pressures frequently and adjust them
to the proper pressure, which can be found on
the vehicle's tire information placard or certification label.
Checking tire pressure
Cold tires
Inflation pressure should be checked when the
tires are cold.
The tires are considered to be cold when
they have the same temperature as the surrounding (ambient) air.
This temperature is normally reached after the
car has been parked for at least 3 hours.
After driving a distance of approximately 1 mile
(1.6 km), the tires are considered to be hot. If
you have to drive farther than this distance to
pump your tire(s), check and record the tire
pressure first and add the appropriate air pressure when you get to the pump.
If checking tire pressure when the tire is hot,
never "bleed" or reduce air pressure. The tires
are hot from driving and it is normal for pressures to increase above recommended cold
pressures. A hot tire at or below recommended
cold inflation pressure could be significantly
under-inflated.

To check inflation pressure:
Load ratings
1. Remove the cap from the valve on one tire,
then firmly press the tire gauge onto the
valve.
See page 183 for an explanation of the load
rating on the sidewall of the tire.
2. Add air to reach the recommended air
pressure
The speed ratings in the tables translate as follows:

3. Replace the valve cap.
4. Repeat this procedure for each tire, including the spare.
5. Visually inspect the tires to make sure there
are no nails or other objects embedded
that could puncture the tire and cause an
air leak.
6. Check the sidewalls to make sure there are
no gouges, cuts, bulges or other irregularities.
NOTE
•
If you overfill the tire, release air by
pushing on the metal stem in the center
of the valve. Then recheck the pressure
with your tire gauge.
•
Some spare tires require higher inflation
pressure than the other tires. Consult
the tire inflation tables, see page 181,
or see the inflation pressure placard.

Vehicle loading
Loading the vehicle
Before loading your vehicle, familiarize yourself
with the following terms for determining your
vehicle's weight ratings, with or without a
trailer, from the vehicle's Federal/Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS/
CMVSS) label, and the vehicle's tire information placard:
Curb weight
The weight of the vehicle including a full tank
of fuel and all standard equipment. It does not
include passengers, cargo, or optional equipment.
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS/
CMVSS) label. The total load on each axle must
never exceed its maximum permissible weight.
3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver
and passengers from XXX kilograms or
XXX pounds.
Gross vehicle weight (GVW)
4. The resulting figure equals the available
amount of cargo and luggage load
capacity. For example, if the "XXX" amount
equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five
150 lbs. passengers in your vehicle, the
amount of available cargo and luggage
load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400–750 (5×150)
= 650 lbs.)
The vehicle's curb weight + cargo + passengers.
NOTE
•
The location of the various labels in your
vehicle can be found on page 268.
•
A table listing important weight limits for
your vehicle can be found on page
271.
Capacity weight
All weight added to the curb weight, including
cargo and optional equipment. When towing,
trailer hitch tongue load is also part of cargo
weight.
NOTE
For trailer towing information, please refer to
the section "Towing a trailer", see
page 163.
07
Steps for Determining Correct Load
Limit
1. Locate the statement "the combined
weight of occupants and cargo should
never exceed XXX pounds" on your vehicle's placard.
2. Determine the combined weight of the
driver and passengers that will be riding in
your vehicle.
Permissible axle weight
The maximum allowable weight that can be
carried by a single axle (front or rear). These
numbers are shown on the Federal/Canadian

5. Determine the combined weight of luggage
and cargo being loaded on the vehicle.
That weight may not safely exceed the
available cargo and luggage load capacity
calculated in Step 4.
6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load
from your trailer will be transferred to your
vehicle. Consult this manual1 to determine
how this reduces the available cargo and
luggage load capacity of your vehicle.

Vehicle loading
WARNING
•
Exceeding the permissible axle weight,
gross vehicle weight, or any other
weight rating limits can cause tire overheating resulting in permanent deformation or catastrophic failure.
•
Do not use replacement tires with lower
load carrying capacities than the tires
that were original equipment on the
vehicle because this will lower the vehicle's GVW rating. Use only tires with the
correct load carrying capacity. Consult
your Volvo retailer for information.

WARNING
The traction grade assigned to this tire is
based on braking (straight-ahead) traction
tests and is not a measure of cornering
(turning) traction.
Temperature A
TREADWEAR
07
The treadwear grade is a comparative rating
based on the wear rate of the tire when tested
under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one half (1 1/2)
times as well on the government course as a
tire graded 100. The relative performance of
tires depends upon the actual conditions of
their use, however, and many depart significantly from the norm due to variation in driving
habits, maintenance practices and differences
in road characteristics and climate.
TRACTION
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are
AA, A, B, and C, as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government test sur-
TEMPERATURE
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B,
and C, representing the tire's resistance to the
generation of heat and its ability to dissipate
heat when tested under controlled conditions
on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
Sustained high temperature can cause the
material of the tire to degenerate and reduce
tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to
sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds
to a minimum level of performance that all passenger vehicle tires must meet under the Federal Motor Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B
and A represent higher levels of performance
on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum
required by law.

WARNING
The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and
not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat
buildup and tire failure.

Snow chains
CAUTION
ure to do so could reduce traction to an
unsafe level or adversely affect handling.
Snow chains can be used on your Volvo with
the following restrictions:
•
Check local regulations regarding the
use of snow chains before installing.
• Do not mix tires of different design as this
• Snow chains should be installed on front
•
Always follow the chain manufacturer's
installation instructions carefully. Install
chains as tightly as possible and
retighten periodically.
• Winter tires wear more quickly on dry roads
wheels only. Use only Volvo approved
snow chains.
• If accessory, aftermarket or "custom" tires
and wheels are installed and are of a size
different than the original tires and wheels,
chains in some cases CANNOT be used.
Sufficient clearances between chains and
brakes, suspension and body components
must be maintained.
• Some strap-on type chains will interfere
with brake components and therefore
CANNOT be used.
• Certain size tires may not allow the assembly of snow chains/traction devices.
Consult your Volvo retailer for additional snow
chain information.
•
Never exceed the chain manufacturer's
specified maximum speed limit. (Under
no circumstances should you exceed
31 mph (50 km/h).
•
Avoid bumps, holes or sharp turns
when driving with snow chains.

when the winter driving season has ended.
• Studded tires should be run-in
300–600 miles (500–1000 km) during
which the car should be driven as smoothly
as possible to give the studs the opportunity to seat properly in the tires. The tires
should have the same rotational direction
throughout their entire lifetime.
NOTE
Please consult state or provincial regulations restricting the use of studded winter
tires before installing such tires.
Tires for winter use:
• Owners who live in or regularly commute
through areas with sustained periods of
snow or icy driving conditions are strongly
advised to fit suitable winter tires to help
retain the highest degree of traction.

Tire Sealing System*
Introduction
Accessing the tire sealing system
The tire sealing system is stowed in the compartment in the rear side of the ski hatch in the
center of the rear seat backrest. See page
119 for information on opening this hatch.
1. Lift the floor hatch in the trunk.
WARNING
•
After using the tire sealing system, the
vehicle should not be driven farther than
approximately 120 miles (200 km).
•
Have the tire inspected by a trained and
qualified Volvo service technician as
soon as possible to determine if it can
be permanently repaired or must be
replaced.
•
The vehicle should not be driven faster
than 50 mph (80 km/h) while using a tire
that has been temporarily repaired with
the tire sealing system.
•
After using the tire sealing system, drive
carefully and avoid abrupt steering
maneuvers and sudden stops.
2. Lift out the tire sealing system.
NOTE
Location of the tire sealing system
•
The tire sealing system is only intended
to seal holes on the tire’s tread area, not
the sidewall.
•
Tires with large holes or tears cannot be
repaired with the tire sealing system.
•
After use, stow the tire sealing system
properly to help prevent rattling.
Certain models are equipped with a tire sealing
system* that enables you to temporarily seal a
hole in the tread surface and re-inflate a flat tire,
or to adjust a tire’s inflation pressure.
07
The system consists of an air compressor, a
container for the sealing compound, wiring to
connect the system to the vehicle’s electrical
system via one of the 12-volt sockets, and a
hose used to connect the system to the tire’s
inflation valve.
The 12-volt socket is located in the front tunnel
console.

reading from the pressure gauge. The
compressor should not be used for more
than 10 minutes at a time to avoid overheating.
CAUTION
12. Switch off the compressor and disconnect
the electrical wire from the 12-volt socket.
13. Unscrew the hose from the tire’s inflation
valve and reinstall the valve cap.
14. Immediately drive the vehicle for approximately 2 miles (3 km) at a maximum speed
of 50 mph (80 km/h) to distribute the sealing compound in the tire.
CAUTION
If your vehicle is equipped with the Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), the
use of the sealing compound may lead to
incorrect tire pressure readings or in rare
cases, damage to the tire pressure sensor.
Use the tire sealing system to check and
adjust the damaged tire's inflation pressure.
The compressor should not be used for
more than 10 minutes at a time to avoid
overheating.
NOTE
•
WARNING
If the pressure remains below 22 psi
(1.8 bar) after approximately seven minutes,
turn off the compressor. In this case, the
hole is too large to be sealed and the vehicle
should not be driven.
WARNING
If heavy vibrations, unsteady steering
behavior, or noises should occur while driving, reduce speed and park the vehicle in a
safe place. Recheck the tire for bumps,
cracks, or other visible damage, and
recheck its inflation pressure. If the pressure
is below 19 psi (1.3 bar), do not continue
driving. Have the vehicle towed to a trained
and qualified Volvo service technician.
•
Safely stow the tire sealing system in a
convenient place as it will soon be used
again to check the tire’s inflation pressure.
The empty bottle of sealing compound
cannot be removed from the bottle
holder. Consult a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician to have the
bottle removed and properly disposed
of.
Stage 2: Checking inflation pressure
1. Connect the tire sealing system as described in stage 1.
2. Refer to the inflation pressure tables for the
correct inflation pressure. If the tire needs
to be inflated, start the tire sealing system’s
compressor. If necessary, release air from
the tire by turning the air release knob
counterclockwise.
CAUTION
The compressor should not be used for
more than 10 minutes at a time to avoid
overheating.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Introduction
The tire pressure monitoring system1 uses sensors mounted in the tire valves to check inflation pressure levels. When the vehicle is moving at a speed of approximately 20 mph
(30 km/h) or faster, these sensors transmit
inflation pressure data to a receiver located in
the vehicle.
NOTE
USA – FCC ID: KR5S122780002
This device complies with part 15 of the
FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this
device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
When low inflation pressure is detected, TPMS
will light up the tire pressure warning light
(also referred to as a telltale) in the instrument
panel and will display one of the following messages in the text window: LOW TIRE PRESS.
CHECK TIRES or VERY LOW TIRE
PRESSURE.
1
NOTE
If a fault occurs in TPMS, the tire pressure
warning light will flash for approximately
1 minute and TIRE PRESS SYST
SERVICE REQUIRED will be displayed.
Each tire, including the spare (if provided),
should be checked monthly when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended
by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle
placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your
vehicle has tires of a different size than the size
indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation
pressure label, you should determine the
proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has
been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring
system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is
significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when
the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you
should stop and check your tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated
tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to
tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel
efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the
vehicle's handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute
for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached
the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low
tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a
TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when
the system is not operating properly. The
TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with
the low tire pressure telltale . When the system
detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for
approximately one minute and then remain
continuously illuminated. This sequence will
continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as
long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system
may not be able to detect or signal low tire
pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may
occur for a variety of reasons, including the
installation of replacement or alternate tires or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS
from functioning properly. Always check the
TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one
or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to
ensure that the replacement or alternate tires
and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to
function properly.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
NOTE
•
•
•
TPMS indicates low tire pressure but
does not replace normal tire maintenance. For information on correct tire
pressure, please refer to the tables
beginning on page 181, or consult your
Volvo retailer.
The tire pressure warning light will not
identify which tire is underinflated. Be
sure to check all four tires.
A certain amount of air seepage from
the tires occurs naturally and tire pressure fluctuates with seasonal changes
in temperature. Always check tire pressure regularly.
Erasing warning messages
When a low tire pressure warning message has
been displayed, and the tire pressure warning
light has come on:
1. Use a tire pressure gauge to check the
inflation pressure of all four tires.
07
2. Re-inflate the tire(s) to the correct pressure
(consult the tire pressure placard or the
tables, see page 181 ).
3. In certain cases, it may be necessary to
drive the vehicle for several minutes at a
speed of 20 mph (30 km/h) or faster. This
WARNING
Incorrect inflation pressure could lead to tire
failure, resulting in a loss of control of the
vehicle.
NOTE
•
If you change to tires with a different
recommended inflation pressure, the
TPMS system must be recalibrated to
these tires. This must be done by an
authorized Volvo retailer or workshop.
•
If a tire is changed, or if the TPMS sensor is moved to another wheel, the sensor's seal, nut, and valve core should be
replaced.
•
When installing TPMS sensors, the
vehicle must be parked for at least
15 minutes with the ignition off. If the
vehicle is driven within 15 minutes, a
TPMS error message will be displayed.
Changing wheels with TPMS
Please note the following when changing or
replacing the factory installed TPMS wheels/
tires on the vehicle:
• Only the factory-mounted wheels are
equipped with TPMS sensors in the valves.
• If the vehicle is equipped with a temporary
spare tire, this tire does not have a TPMS
sensor.
• If wheels without TPMS sensors are mounted on the vehicle, TIRE PRESS SYST
SERVICE REQUIRED will be displayed
each time the vehicle is driven above
25 mph (40 km/h) for 10 minutes or more.
• Once TPMS sensors are properly installed,
the warning message should not reappear.
If the message is still displayed, drive the
vehicle for several minutes at a speed of
20 mph (30 km/h) or faster to erase the
message.
• Volvo recommends that TPMS sensors be
fitted on all wheels used on the vehicle.

Washing and cleaning the car
Washing the car
The following points should be kept in mind
when washing and cleaning the car:
• The car should be washed at regular intervals since dirt, dust, insects and tar spots
adhere to the paint and may cause damage. To help prevent corrosion, it is particularly important to wash the car frequently
in the wintertime when salt has been used
on the roads.
• Avoid washing your car in direct sunlight.
Doing so may cause detergents and wax
to dry out and become abrasive. To avoid
scratching, use lukewarm water to soften
the dirt before you wash with a soft
sponge, and plenty of sudsy water.
•
Bird droppings: Remove from paintwork
as soon as possible. Otherwise the finish
may be permanently damaged.
• A detergent can be used to facilitate the
softening of dirt and oil.

NOTE
When washing the car, remember to remove
dirt from the drain holes in the doors and
sills.
CAUTION
•
During high pressure washing, the
spray mouthpiece must never be closer
to the vehicle than 13" (30 cm). Do not
spray into the locks.
•
Dirt, snow, etc., on the headlights can
reduce lighting capacity considerably.
Clean the headlights regularly, for
example when refueling.
Exterior components
Volvo recommends the use of special cleaning
products, available at your Volvo retailer, for
cleaning colored plastic, rubber, or ornamental
components such as chromed strips on the
exterior of your vehicle. The instructions for
using these products should be followed carefully. Solvents or stain removers should not be
used.
•
Automatic washing – simple and quick

remember to clean the drain holes in the
doors and rocker panels.
• Tar spots can be removed with tar remover
after the car has been washed.
An automatic wash is a simple and quick way
to clean your car, but it is worth remembering
that it may not be as thorough as when you
yourself go over the car with sponge and water.

Washing and cleaning the car
Keeping the underbody clean is most important, especially in the winter. Some automatic
washers do not have facilities for washing the
underbody.
CAUTION
•
Before driving into an automatic car
wash, turn off the optional rain sensor to
avoid damaging the windshield wipers.
•
Make sure that side view mirrors, auxiliary lamps, etc, are secure, and that any
antenna(s) are retracted or removed.
Otherwise there is risk of the machine
dislodging them
•
Chromed wheels: Clean chromeplated wheels using the same detergents used for the body of the vehicle.
Aggressive wheel-cleaning agents can
permanently stain chrome-plated
wheels.
WARNING
•
•
When the car is driven immediately after
being washed, apply the brakes several
times in order to remove any moisture
from the brake linings.
Engine cleaning agents should not be
used when the engine is warm. This
constitutes a fire risk.
Exterior lighting
Condensation may form temporarily on the
inside of the lenses of exterior lights such as
headlights, fog lights, or taillights. This is normal and the lights are designed to withstand
moisture. Normally, condensation will dissipate after the lights have been on for a short
time.
Polishing and Waxing
• Normally, polishing is not required during
the first year after delivery, however, waxing may be beneficial.
• Before applying polish or wax the vehicle
must be washed and dried. Tar spots can
be removed with kerosene or tar remover.
Difficult spots may require a fine rubbing
compound.
• After polishing use liquid or paste wax.
• Several commercially available products
contain both polish and wax.
• Waxing alone does not substitute for polishing a dull surface.
• A wide range of polymer-based waxes can
be purchased today. These waxes are easy
to use and produce a long-lasting, highgloss finish that protects the bodywork
against oxidation, road dirt and fading.
• Do not polish or wax your vehicle in direct
CAUTION
Volvo does not recommend the use of longlife or durable paint protection coatings,
some of which may claim to prevent pitting,
fading, oxidation, etc. These coatings have
not been tested by Volvo for compatibility
with your vehicle's clear coat. Some of them
may cause the clear coat to soften, crack,
or cloud. Damage caused by application of
paint protection coatings may not be covered under your vehicle's paint warranty.
Upholstery care
Fabric
Clean with soapy water or a detergent. For
more difficult spots caused by oil, ice cream,
shoe polish, grease, etc., use a clothing/fabric

Leather care
Volvo's leather upholstery is manufactured
with a protectant to repel soiling. Over time,
sunlight, grease and dirt can break down the
protection. Staining, cracking, scuffing, and
fading can result.
3. Dampen the stain thoroughly with the
sponge. Let the sponge absorb the stain,
do not rub.
4. Dry the stain with soft paper towels or a
towel, and allow the leather to dry completely.
Volvo offers an easy-to-use, non-greasy
leather care kit formulated to clean and beautify your vehicle's leather, and to renew the
protective qualities of its finish. The cleaner
removes dirt and oil buildup. The light cream
protectant restores a barrier against soil and
sunlight.
Protecting leather upholstery
Volvo also offers a special leather softener that
should be applied after the cleaner and protectant. It leaves leather soft and smooth, and
reduces friction between leather and other finishes in the vehicle.
This will help the leather resist staining and
protect against sunlight's harmful UV rays.
1. Put a small amount of protectant cream on
a cloth and apply a thin coating of cream
to the upholstery with light circular movements.
Under no circumstances should gasoline, naphtha or similar cleaning agents
be used on the plastic or the leather
since these can cause damage.
•
Take extra care when removing stains
such as ink or lipstick since the coloring
can spread.
•
Use solvents sparingly. Too much solvent can damage the seat padding.
•
Start from the outside of the stain and
work toward the center.
•
Sharp objects (e.g. pencils or pens in a
pocket) or Velcro fasteners on clothing
may damage the textile upholstery.
•
Clothing that is not colorfast, such as
new jeans or suede garments, may stain
the upholstery.
Cleaning the seat belts
Clean only with lukewarm water and a mild
soap solution.
Cleaning leather upholstery
1. Pour leather cleaner on a damp sponge

OBD II is part of your vehicle's computerized
engine management system. It stores diagnostic information about your vehicle's emission
controls. It can light the Check Engine light

"fault" is a component or system that is not
performing within an expected range. A fault
may be permanent or temporary. OBD II will
store a message about any fault.
• Clean interior glass surfaces with a glass
cleaner and soft paper towels.
• Wipe driver information displays with a soft
cloth.
• Visually inspect battery terminals for corrosion. Corrosion may indicate a loose terminal connector, or a battery near the end
of its useful service life. Consult a trained
and qualified Volvo service technician for
additional information.

required disconnecting the battery, a
period of driving is necessary to bring the
OBD II system to "ready" for inspection. A
half-hour trip of mixed stop-and-go/highway driving is typically needed to allow
OBD II to reach readiness. Your Volvo
retailer can provide you with more information on planning a trip.
• Maintain your vehicle in accordance with
your vehicle's maintenance schedule.
• If your vehicle's Check Engine light was lit,
but went out without any action on your
part, OBD II will still have a recorded fault.
Your vehicle may pass or fail, depending
on the inspection practices in your area.
• If you had recent service that required disconnecting the battery, OBD II diagnostic

Volvo recommends Castrol.
Volvo does not recommend the use of
oil additives.
•
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is
changed at the normal maintenance
intervals except at owner request and at
additional charge. Please consult a
trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
Checking and adding oil
The oil level should be checked at regular intervals, particularly during the period up to the
first scheduled maintenance service.
• The car should be parked on a level surface
when the oil is checked.
• If the engine is warm, wait for at least
10–15 minutes after the engine has been

CAUTION
Checking the oil
1. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it with a lintfree rag.
2. Reinsert the dipstick, pull it out, and check
the oil level.
3. Add oil if necessary. If the level is close to
the MIN mark, add approximately
1 US quart (1 liter) of oil.
4. Run the engine until it reaches normal
operating temperature.
•
Not checking the oil level regularly can
result in serious engine damage if the oil
level becomes too low.
•
Oil that is lower than the specified quality can damage the engine.
•
Always add oil of the same type and
viscosity as already used.
•
Never fill oil above the MAX mark. This
could cause an increase in oil consumption.
5. Switch off the engine and wait for at least
10–15 minutes and recheck the oil level. If
necessary, add oil until the level is near the

Coolant reservoir
The washer fluid reservoir is located in the
engine compartment and holds approximately
4.2 US qts (4 liters). During cold weather, the
reservoir should be filled with windshield

•
If necessary, top up the cooling system
with Volvo Genuine Coolant/Antifreeze
only (a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze).
•
Different types of antifreeze/coolant
may not be mixed.
•
If the cooling system is drained, it
should be flushed with clean water or
premixed anti-freeze before it is refilled
with the correct mixture of water/antifreeze.
•
The cooling system must always be
kept filled to the correct level, and the
level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks. If it is not kept filled, there
can be high local temperatures in the
engine which could result in damage.
Check coolant regularly!
•
Do not top up with water only. This
reduces the rust-protective and antifreeze qualities of the coolant and has a
lower boiling point. It can also cause
damage to the cooling system if it
should freeze.

Replacing fuses
There are relay/fuse boxes located in the

If an electrical component fails to function, this
may be due to a blown fuse. The easiest way
to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it.
To do so:
1. Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult
to remove, special fuse removal tools are
located on the inside of the fuse box covers.
2. From the side, examine the curved metal
wire in the fuse to see if it is intact.
3. If the wire is broken, insert a new fuse of
the same color and amperage (written on
the fuse).
If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical
system inspected by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician.
WARNING
Never use metal objects or fuses with higher
amperage than those stated on the following pages. Doing so could seriously damage

The system supports playback of files in the
most common versions of formats such as
mp3, wma, and wav. However, there may be
versions of these formats that the system
does not support.
Many MP3 players have a file indexing system
that is not supported by the vehicle's audio
system. In order to use an MP3 player, the system must be set to USB Removable device/
Mass Storage Device.
The system also supports a number of
iPodŸ models produced in 2005 or later.

HD Radio൅
൅reception
models only)1
(U.S.
Introduction
The IBOC system is referred to as a "hybrid"
since it is both analogue and digital. During
hybrid operation, receivers still continue to
receive the analogue (non-digital) signal. HD
radio receivers incorporate both modes of
reception, where the receiver will automatically
switch to the analogue signal if the digital signal
cannot be decoded or is lost by the receiver.
When you have tuned to an HD Radio station,
the
symbol will appear in the audio system display.
More information about HD radio and IBOC
can be found on Ibiquity's website,
www.hdradio.com and www.ibiquity.com.
Benefits of digital broadcasting
Display when the radio is receiving an HD Radio
broadcast
HD radio is a brand name registered by the
Ibiquity digital corporation2. They are the
developer of a broadcasting technology called
IBOC or In Band On Channel, which refers to
the method of transmitting a digital radio
broadcast signal centered on the same frequency as the AM or FM station's present frequency.

• Better sound (FM sounds near CD quality
and AM as analogue FM).
• Some FM frequencies offer a greater number of listening choices through “multicasting” (consisting of a frequency's main
channel and any sub-channels that may
also be available on that particular frequency. See also the section "Sub-channels" below).
HD Radio works similarly to conventional radio
and broadcasts of this type are available in
many areas of the United States. However,
there are a few key differences:
• Instead of transmitting one analogue signal, stations send out a bundled signal –
both analogue and digital.
• An HD radio receiver can receive both digital and analogue broadcasts. Depending
on the terrain and location of the vehicle
(which will influence the signal strength),
the receiver will determine which signal to
receive.
Limitations
• Main channel vs. sub-channels (FM
only): The main channel is the only channel
that can receive in hybrid mode (both digital and analogue). If a frequency has subchannels, they are broadcast in digital
mode only. The main FM channel will be
displayed as, for example, 93.9 WNYC
(Volvo uses the symbol > to indicate there
are sub-channels available) The sub-FM
• When receiving a digital signal there is no
multipath disturbance or hisses/pops/
crackling due to outside influences.

channels will be displayed as 93.9 – 2
WNYC, 93.9 - 3 WNYC, etc.
• Reception coverage area: Due to current
IBOC transmitter power limitations, the
reception coverage area in digital mode is
somewhat more limited than the station's
analogue coverage area. Please be aware
that as with any radio broadcast technology, terrain, time of day, foliage level and
building location can have positive or negative effects on radio reception.
• Analogue to digital/digital to analogue
blending: Analogue to digital blending will
occur as the signal strength reaches a preset threshold in the receiver. This will be
noticeable in fringe areas (areas with weak
reception) and is normal.
3. Press ENTER to turn HD off (the X will disappear from the box on the display screen).
NOTE
There may be a noticeable difference in
sound quality when a change from analogue
to digital or digital to analogue occurs, such
as:
•
•
Volume increase or decrease
•
Time alignment (Digital program material in extreme cases can be as much as
8 seconds behind the analogue). This
will noticeable as a "stuttering" effect.
Equalizer settings, i.e., Bass/ Midrange/
Treble cut or boost
The above items are dependant on the
broadcaster's equipment settings and do
not indicate a fault in the vehicle's radio
receiver or antenna systems.
This will disable the radio's capability to receive
digital broadcasts but it will continue to function as a conventional (analogue) AM/FM
receiver. Please note that when HD is switched
off, it will not be possible to tune to sub-channels (see the following section for a more
detailed explanation of sub-channels).
10
Repeat steps 2 and 3 above to reactivate HD
(an X will appear in the box on the display
screen).
Sub-channels
Switching HD on or off
The factory setting for HD radio is on. However,
when driving through areas with weak HD signals (fringe areas), you may experience that the
radio repeatedly switches between analogue/
digital and digital/analogue reception. If this
happens, it may be desirable to switch HD off.
To do so:
1. Be sure the audio system is switched on
and is in AM or FM mode.
2. Press MENU in the center console control
panel.

In many cases, a main HD Radio station (FM
wavebands only) will also have sub-channels
offering additional types of programming or
music.
•
In such cases, a number will be displayed to
the right of the frequency number indicating
that the currently tuned frequency has at least
one sub-channel. The "2" in the illustration indicates that you are currently listening to the first
sub-channel on frequency 93.9.
Selecting sub-channels
To listen to a station's sub-channel(s), press
the right arrow key on the center console or on
the steering wheel keypad. To go back to the
main channel, press the left arrow key. To go
to subchannel 2 (if available), press the right
arrow key.
If you are currently tuned to a frequency's main
channel, pressing the left arrow key will tune to
the next lower radio frequency.
Listening to satellite radio
NOTE
•
When the radio has gone into HD mode,
it may take several seconds before the
">" symbol (if the current frequency has
any sub-channels) is displayed to the
right of the frequency. Pressing the
arrow keys before the number is displayed will cause the radio to tune to the
next available radio station, not to the
current station's sub-channels.
When you are no longer in broadcasting
range of the currently tuned sub-channel, No HD reception will be displayed. The radio will then be muted
and it will be necessary to tune to or
search for a new radio station.
Sub-channels can also be stored as presets,
see page 248 for information on storing stations.
If you press a sub-channel's preset button, it
may take up to 6 seconds before the channel
becomes audible. If you press this button while
you are out of digital range of the transmitter,
No HD reception will be displayed.
The Sirius satellite system consists of a number
of high elevation satellites in geosynchronous
orbit.
NOTE
•
The digital signals from the Sirius satellites are line-of-sight, which means that
physical obstructions such as bridges,
tunnels, etc, may temporarily interfere
with signal reception.
•

The transmission oil does not normally need
to be changed during the service life of the
vehicle. However, it may be necessary to
replace the oil if the vehicle is often driven
in areas of sustained temperature extremes
(hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long
distances, for prolonged driving in mountainous areas, or if the vehicle is often driven
short distances in temperatures under 40 °F

Charge air cooler (Intercooler)
The engine employs a turbo-compressor to
force air into the engine intake manifold and a
charge air cooler to cool the compressed inlet
air. The resulting increase in air flow raises
pressure in the intake manifold and increases
engine power over that developed by the normally-aspirated engine. The charge air cooler

• Keep your engine properly tuned. Certain
engine malfunctions, particularly involving
the electrical, fuel or distributor ignition
systems, may cause unusually high threeway catalytic converter temperatures. Do
not continue to operate your vehicle if you
detect engine misfire, noticeable loss of
power or other unusual operating conditions, such as engine overheating or backfiring. A properly tuned engine will help
avoid malfunctions that could damage the

• Do not park your vehicle over combustible
materials, such as grass or leaves, which
can come into contact with the hot exhaust
system and cause such materials to ignite
under certain wind and weather conditions.
• Excessive starter cranking (in excess of
one minute), or an intermittently firing or
flooded engine can cause three-way catalytic converter or exhaust system overheating.
• Remember that tampering or unauthorized
modifications to the engine, the Electronic
