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.
• 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.

• 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.
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. After Volvo vehi-
cles and parts have fulfilled their use, recycling
is the next critical step in completing the life
cycle. The metal content is about 75% of the
total weight of a vehicle, which makes the vehicle among the most recycled industrial products. In order to have efficient and well-controlled recycling, dismantling information is
available for all Volvo models. For Volvo, all
homogeneous plastic parts weighing more
than 3.4 oz. (100 grams) are marked with international symbols that indicate how the component is to be sorted for recycling. 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.
cator) 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.

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 vehicles long before it was fashionable
or required by government regulation.
We will not compromize our commitment to
safety. We continue to seek out new safety
features and to refine those already in our vehicles. 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 vehicle. Call us
in the U.S. at: 1-800-458-1552 or in Canada at:
1-800-663-8255.
• 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.
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.

Seat belts
General information
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.
The retractor will lock up as follows:

if the belt is pulled out rapidly
during braking and acceleration
when driving in turns.
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.
When wearing the seat belt remember:
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 certain impacts from the rear. The front seat belts
also include a tension reducing device which,
• 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.

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.
Seat belt maintenance
Check periodically that the seat belts are in
good condition. Use water and a mild detergent for cleaning. Check seat belt mechanism
function as follows: attach the seat belt and pull
rapidly on the strap.
if the vehicle is leaning excessively
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. See page 36 for more information regarding the Automatic Locking
Retractor (ALR).
Seat belt pretensioners
Unbuckling the seat belt
WARNING
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.
01 Safety
Seat belts
•
Never repair the belt yourself; have this
work done by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician only.
•
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.

Child seats
G020998
Please refer to page 37 for information on
securing child seats with the seat belts.
The seat belt should always be worn during
pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in the
correct way. The diagonal section should wrap
over the shoulder then be routed between the
breasts and to the side of the belly. The lap
section should lay flat over the thighs and as
low as possible under the belly. It must never
be allowed to ride upward. Remove all slack
from the belt and ensure that it fits close to the
body without any twists.
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of the
vehicle as they drive (which means they must
be able to easily operate the foot pedals and
steering wheel). Within this context, they
should strive to position the seat with as large

See also page 74 and page 76 for more
information about indicator and warning symbols.
WARNING
G022831
•
Warning symbols in the instrument panel
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, a front passenger
occupant weight sensor, and 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 is in modes I, II, or
III, and will normally go out after approximately
6 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
insert the remote key into the ignition slot
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:
1. Switch off the ignition for at least
10 minutes and disconnect the battery.
2. Follow the instructions for manually
overriding the shiftlock system on page
111.
Please be aware that overriding the shiftlock
system does not release the steering wheel
lock.
Where applicable, a text message will also be
displayed when the SRS warning light illuminates. If this warning symbol is not functioning

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
Front airbags
The passenger's side front airbag is folded
behind a panel located above the glove compartment.
G018665
WARNING
The front airbag system
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 driver's side front airbag is folded and
located in the steering wheel hub.

•
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 a steering
wheel-mounted airbag 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.

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.

•
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.
•
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.

Whiplash Protection System – WHIPS
General information
Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) –
front seats only
The WHIPS system consists of specially
designed hinges and brackets on the front seat
backrests designed to help absorb some of the
energy generated in a collision from the rear
(when the vehicle is rear-ended).
In the event of a collision of this type, the hinges
and brackets of the front seat backrests are
designed to change position slightly to allow
the backrest/head restraint to help support the
occupant's head before moving slightly rearward. This movement helps absorb some of
the forces that could result in whiplash.
01
WARNING
•
Occupants in the front seats must never
sit out of position. The occupant's back
must be as upright as comfort allows
and be against the seat back with the
seat belt properly fastened.
•
If your vehicle has been involved in a
rear-end collision, the front seat backrests must be inspected by a trained and
qualified Volvo service technician, even
if the seats appear to be undamaged.
Certain components in the WHIPS system may need to be replaced.
•
Do not attempt to service any component in the WHIPS system yourself.
The WHIPS system is designed to supplement the other safety systems in
your vehicle. For this system to function
properly, the three-point seat belt must
be worn. Please be aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that
may occur in an accident.

Rollover Protection System (ROPS)
01
Volvo’s Rollover Protection System utilizes the
Roll Stability Control (RSC) function, which is
designed to help minimize the risk of a rollover
in emergency maneuvers or if a skid should
occur.
RSC uses a gyroscopic sensor that registers
the amount of change in the lateral angle at
which the vehicle is leaning. Using this information, RSC calculates the likelihood of a rollover. If there is an imminent risk of a rollover,
the Dynamic Stability and Traction Control system (DSTC) is activated, power to the engine is
cut and the brakes are applied to one or more
of the wheels until the vehicle regains stability.
For additional information on DSTC, see
page 156.
WARNING
The vehicle’s stability systems, including
ROPS and RSC, do not replace the driver’s
responsibility for operating the vehicle in a
safe manner. Speed and driving style
should always be adapted to the current
road, traffic and weather conditions. Posted
speed limits should always be respected.

01 Safety
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
vehicle.
Your vehicle 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 vehicles 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 vehicle. 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.
01
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
43). 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 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
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.

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.
On hot days, the temperature in the
vehicle interior can rise very quickly.
Exposure to these high temperatures
for even a short period of time can
cause heat-related injury or death.
Small children are particularly at risk.
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.
Volvo's recommendations
Why does Volvo believe that no child should sit
in the front seat of a vehicle? It's quite simple
really. A front airbag is a very powerful device
designed, by law, to help protect an adult.
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
I
nf

injuries during certain types of accidents.
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.

WARNING
•
When not in use, keep the child restraint
system secured or remove it from the
passenger compartment to help prevent it from injuring passengers in the
event of a sudden stop or collision.
•
A small child's head represents a considerable part of its total weight and its
neck is still very weak. Volvo recommends that children up to age 4 travel,
properly restrained, facing rearward. In
addition, Volvo recommends that children should ride rearward facing, properly restrained, as long as possible.

NOTE
•
ISOFIX lower child restraint anchors
Lower anchors for ISOFIX-equipped child
seats are located in the rear, outboard seats,
hidden below the backrest cushions. Symbols
on the seat back upholstery mark the anchor
positions as shown. To access the anchors,
kneel on the seat cushion and locate the
anchors by feel. Always follow your child seat
manufacturer's installation instructions, and
use both ISOFIX lower anchors and top tethers
whenever possible.
•
The rear seat's center position is not
equipped with ISOFIX lower anchors.
When installing a child restraint in this
position, attach the restraint's top tether
strap (if it is so equipped) to the top
tether anchorage point and secure the
restraint with the vehicle's center seat
belt.
Always follow your child seat manufacturer's installation instructions, and use

WARNING
•
Be sure to fasten the attachment correctly to the anchor (see the illustration).
If the attachment is not correctly fastened, the child restraint may not be
properly secured in the event of a collision.
•
The ISOFIX lower child restraint
anchors are only intended for use with
child seats positioned in the outboard
seating positions. These anchors are
not certified for use with any child
restraint that is positioned in the center
seating position. When securing a child
restraint in the center seating position,
use only the vehicle's center seat belt.
01 Safety
Top tether anchors
Child restraint anchorages
Refer also to the child seat manufacturer's
instructions for information on securing the
child seat.
WARNING
•
Never route a top tether strap over the
top of the head restraint. The strap
should be routed beneath the head
restraint.
•
Child restraint anchorages are designed
to withstand only those loads imposed
by correctly fitted child restraints. Under
no circumstances are they to be used
for adult seat belts or harnesses. The
anchorages are not able to withstand
excessive forces on them in the event of
collision if full harness seat belts or adult
seat belts are installed to them. An adult
who uses a belt anchored in a child
restraint anchorage runs a great risk of
suffering severe injuries should a collision occur.
•
Do not install rear speakers that require
the removal of the top tether anchors or
interfere with the proper use of the top
tether strap.
NOTE
G017676
On models equipped with the optional
cargo area cover, this cover should be
removed before a child seat is attached to
the child restraint anchors.
Your Volvo is equipped with child restraint top
tether anchorages in the rear seat. They are
located on the rear side of the backrests.
Securing a child seat
1. Place the child restraint on the rear seat.
2. Route the top tether strap under the head
restraint and attach it to the anchor.
01
3. Attach lower tether straps to the lower ISOFIX/LATCH anchors. If the child restraint is
not equipped with lower tether straps, or
the restraint is used in the center seating
position, follow instructions for securing a
child restraint using the Automatic Locking
Retractor seat belt (see page 36).

HomeLink® Wireless Control System*
Introduction
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.
Programming HomeLink
WARNING
•
•
•
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.
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”.
1
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.
03
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.

NOTE
03
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
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.
If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator or garage
door opener by using the “Programming” pro-

cedures, replace “Programming HomeLink”
step 2 with the following:
• Continue to press and hold the HomeLink
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 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
up to warn the driver that a fault has occurred.
If this light comes on while driving or braking,

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.
Water on brake discs and brake pads
affects braking
Driving in rain and slush or passing through an
automatic car wash can cause water to collect
on the brake discs and pads. This will cause a
delay in braking effect when the pedal is
depressed. To avoid such a delay when the
brakes are needed, depress the pedal occasionally when driving through rain, slush, etc.
This will remove the water from the brakes.
Check that brake application feels normal. This
should also be done after washing or starting
in very damp or cold weather.
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.
Anti-lock braking system
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 brief self-diagnostic
test when the engine has been started and
driver releases the brake pedal. Another automatic test may be performed when the vehicle
first reaches a speed of approximately 25 mph
(40 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several
times and a sound may be audible from the
ABS control module. This is normal.
Cleaning the brake discs
Severe strain on the brake system
Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs
may result in delayed brake function. This delay
is minimized by cleaning the brake linings.
The brakes will be subject to severe strain
when driving in mountains or hilly areas, or
when towing a trailer. Vehicle speed is usually
Cleaning the brake pads is advisable in wet
weather, prior to long-term parking, and after
the vehicle has been washed. Do this by brak-

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
pedal will go down and pressure in the brake
system immediately increases to the maximum
level. Maintain full pressure on the brake pedal
in order to utilize the system completely. EBA
is automatically deactivated when the brake
pedal is released.

•
When the EBA system is activated, the

in the brake system immediately increases to the maximum level. You must
maintain full pressure on the brake
pedal in order to utilize the system completely. There will be no braking effect if
the pedal is released. EBA is automatically deactivated when the brake pedal
is released.
When the vehicle has been parked for
some time, the brake pedal may sink
more than usual when the engine is

03 Your driving environment
Hill Descent Control (HDC)
Introduction
Function
Using HDC
Normally, when the accelerator pedal is
released while driving down hills, the vehicle's
speed slows as the engine runs at lower rpm
(the normal engine braking effect). However, if
the downhill gradient becomes steeper and if
the vehicle is carrying a load, speed increases
despite the engine braking effect. In this situation, the brakes must be applied to reduce the
vehicle's speed.
HDC is a type of automatic engine brake and
makes it possible to increase or decrease the
vehicle's speed on downhill gradients using
only the accelerator pedal, without applying
the brakes. The brake system functions automatically to maintain a low and steady speed.
HDC is particularly useful when driving down
steep hills with rough surfaces, and where the
road may have slippery patches.
WARNING
HDC does not function in all situations, and
is a supplementary braking aid. The driver
has full responsibility for driving in a safe
manner.
HDC allows the car to roll forward at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h), and 4 mph
(7 km/h) in reverse. However, the accelerator
pedal can be used to select any speed that is
possible in first or reverse gears. When the
accelerator pedal is released, speed is quickly
reduced again to 6 mph (10 km/h) or 4 mph
(7 km/h), depending on the gear selected,
regardless of the hill's gradient. It is not necessary to apply the brakes.
03
• The brake lights illuminate automatically
• HDC can be switched on and off with the
button in the center console. An indicator
light in the button illuminates when HDC is
activated.
• The indicator light
in the instrument panel illuminates and a message is
displayed when the system is controlling
the vehicle's speed.
• HDC only functions when first or reverse
gears are selected (1 will be shown in the
instrument panel display when first gear is
selected).
when HDC is controlling the vehicle's
speed.
• The driver can slow or stop the vehicle at
any time by applying the brakes.
HDC is deactivated when:
• The button on the center console is
pressed
• A gear higher than first gear is selected
• D is selected on vehicles with an automatic
transmission
HDC can be deactivated at any time. If this is
done while driving down a steep hill, the system's braking effect will decrease gradually.
NOTE
HDC cannot be activated if the gear selector
is the D position.

Introduction
Air conditioning
The vehicle is equipped with Electronic Climate
Control (ECC). The climate control system
cools, heats or dehumidifies the air in the passenger compartment.
NOTE
The sunlight sensor monitors which side of
the car that is most exposed to sunlight.
This can mean that the temperature may
differ between the right and left-side air
vents, even if the temperatures set for both
sides of the passenger compartment are the
same.
NOTE
•

The air conditioning can be switched
off, but to ensure the best possible climate comfort in the passenger compartment and to prevent the windows
from misting, it should always be on.

mercially available window washing spray will
also help prevent fogging or misting.
Temporary shut-off of the air
conditioning
The air conditioning is momentarily disengaged during full-throttle acceleration or when
driving uphill with a trailer. This may result in a
temporary increase in cabin temperature.
Ice and snow
Always keep the air intake grille at the base of
the windshield free of snow.
Climate system 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.
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 air conditioning system contains 1.8 lbs (800 g) of
R134a. The systems uses PAG oil.
Passenger compartment filter
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at
the recommended intervals. Please refer to
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Climate system
NOTE
There are different types of cabin air filters.
Ensure that the correct type is installed.
Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
A multifilter helps reduce gases and particles
in the incoming air, thereby reducing the levels
of odors and contaminants entering the vehicle. The air quality sensor detects increased
levels of contaminants in the outside air. When
the air quality sensor detects contaminated
outside air, the air intake closes and the air
inside the passenger compartment is recirculated, i.e. no outside air enters the vehicle. The
filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air.

Recirculation/air quality system
Interior Air Quality System–IAQS*
Recirculation
This system consists of a multifilter and an air quality sensor. The filter helps remove
gases and particles from the
incoming air, thereby reducing the amounts of odors and
contaminants entering the
vehicle. The air quality sensor detects
increased levels of contaminants in the outside
air. When the air quality sensor detects contaminated outside air, the air intake closes and
the air inside the passenger compartment is
recirculated, i.e., no outside air enters the vehicle. The filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air. When the AUTO button
is depressed the air quality sensor is always
engaged.
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. The
indicator light in the button will illuminate when
recirculation is selected.
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 by automatically switching off the
function after a certain length of time, depending on the ambient temperature. Activate/

HD radio is a brand name registered by the
Ibiquity digital corporation6. 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.
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,
symbol will appear in the audio systhe
tem 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
• 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).
• When receiving a digital signal there is no
multipath disturbance or hisses/pops/
crackling due to outside influences.
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.
How HD broadcasting works
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:
• 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.
• 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
channels will be displayed as 93.9 – 2
WNYC, 93.9 - 3 WNYC, etc.
• Reception coverage area: Due to current
NOTE
04
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.
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

Switching HD on or off
Sub-channels
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:
If you are currently tuned to a frequency's main
channel, pressing the left arrow key will tune to
the next lower radio frequency.
NOTE
1. Be sure the audio system is switched on
and in AM or FM mode.
04
•
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.
2. Press MENU in the center console control
panel.
3. Press ENTER to turn HD off (the X will disappear from the box on the display screen).
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).
Repeat steps 2 and 3 above to reactivate HD
(an X will appear in the box on the display
screen).
Example of an HD Radio station with sub-channels
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, the “>” symbol will be displayed
to the left of the frequency number and 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
Sub-channels can also be stored as presets,
see page 135 for information on storing stations.

Stability system
Introduction
Spin control (SC)
The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
system (DSTC) consists of a number of functions designed help reduce wheel spin, counteract skidding, and to generally help improve
directional stability.
The spin control function is designed to help
prevent the drive wheels from spinning while
the vehicle is accelerating.
CAUTION
A pulsating sound will be audible when the
system is actively operating and is normal.
Under certain circumstances, such as when
driving with snow chains, or driving in deep
snow or loose sand, it may be advisable to
temporarily switch off this function for maximum tractive force.
WARNING
04
Traction control (TC)
This function is designed to help reduce wheel
spin by transferring power from a drive wheel
that begins to lose traction to the wheel on the
opposite side of the vehicle (on the same axle).
The car's handling and stability characteristics will be altered if the spin control function
has been disabled.
Operation
Temporarily switching off Spin control
1. Turn the thumbwheel
until the DSTC
menu is shown.
2. Hold down the RESET button
to toggle
between DSTC SPIN CONTROL ON or
OFF.
Messages in the information display
DSTC Temporarily OFF – system function
has been temporarily reduced due to high
brake disc temperature. The function is activated automatically when the brakes have
cooled.
DSTC Service required – the system has
been disabled due to a fault. If this occurs:
TC is most active at low speeds.
1. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and turn off
the engine.
This is one of DSTC's permanent functions and
cannot be switched off.
2. Restart the engine.
If the message remains when the engine is
restarted, drive to an authorized Volvo workshop to have the system inspected.
Active Yaw Control (AYC)
This function helps maintain directional stability, for example when cornering, by braking
one or more of the wheels if the vehicle shows
a tendency to skid or slide laterally.

Operation
NOTE
Active chassis, Four-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept), regulates the characteristics of the shock absorbers so that the
car's driving characteristics can be adjusted.
There are three settings: Comfort, Sport and
Advanced.
This steering force level menu function cannot be accessed when the vehicle is in
motion.
Comfort
04
Comfort mode offers a somewhat softer ride
and the transmission shifts gears at lower rpm.
This mode is particularly suitable for long-distance highway driving. The indicator light in the
button will be on when this mode is selected.
Sport
In this mode, the vehicle's body sway is
reduced during cornering and steering
response is more immediate. The transmission
shifts up at higher rpm for sportier driving. The
indicator light in the button will be on to indicate that Sport mode has been selected.
Advanced
In this mode, body sway in curves is minimal
and steering response is very direct. Gear shifting is done at high rpm in each gear for
dynamic and active driving.
Chassis settings
Use the buttons in the center console to
change setting. The setting in use when the
engine is switched off is activated the next time
the engine is started.
Speed-dependent steering force*
Steering force increases with the speed of the
vehicle to give the driver enhanced sensitivity.
At low speed the vehicle is easy to steer in
order to facilitate parking, etc.

Collision warning with Auto-brake*
Collision Warning with Auto-brake is designed
to assist the driver if there is a risk of a collision
with the vehicle ahead, if that vehicle is at a
standstill or moving in the same direction as
your vehicle. Auto-brake helps reduce the collision speed.
Collision Warning consists of the following
three functions:
•
The collision warning system does not
work in all driving situations, and traffic,
weather and road conditions.
•
The collision warning system is not
designed to detect pedestrians.
•
Warnings are only provided when the
risk of collision is high. The Function
section provides information about limitations that the driver must be aware of
before use.
• Collision warning warns the driver of the
imminent risk of a collision.
• Brake support helpsthe driver brake effi-
•
ciently in a critical situation.
• Auto-brake brakes the vehicle automatically if a collision cannot be avoided.
WARNING
The auto-brake function cannot prevent a
collision but instead is intended to reduce
speed at the moment of impact. For full
braking effect, driver must apply the brakes.
Function
WARNING
•
Never wait for a collision warning. This
system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however,
intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is
responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed, even when the collision warning system is in use.
Maintenance of the collision warning
system components must only be performed by a trained and qualified Volvo
technician.

support is activated. Brake support prepares
the brake system to react quickly, and the
brakes are applied slightly. This may be experienced as a light tug.
If the brakes are applied quickly, full braking
effect will be provided, even if pressure on the
brake pedal is light.
Auto-brake
04
If a collision is imminent and the driver has not
applied the brakes, the auto-brake function is
activated without the driver pressing the brake
pedal. Limited brake force is applied to reduce
the vehicle’s speed when the collision occurs.
WARNING
The auto-brake function cannot prevent a
collision but instead is intended to reduce
speed at the moment of impact. For full
braking effect, driver must apply the brakes.
NOTE
The auto-brake function is always on and
cannot be turned off.
Operation
Some settings are controlled from the center
console via a menu system. For information on
how the menu system is used, see page 122.
On and off
WARNING
To switch Collision Warning on or off, go into
the menu Car settings Collision warning
settings and select On or Off. When the engine
is started, the setting that was selected when
it was switched off will be used.
The setting Short should only be used
in situations where traffic is light and
moving at low speeds.
•
Collision Warning alerts the driver to the
risk of a collision but this function cannot reduce the driver’s reaction time.
•
For Collision Warning to be as effective
as possible, it is recommended that Distance Alert be set to 4 or 5, see
page 180.
Activating/deactivating warning signals
The collision warning system’s audible and visual signals are activated automatically when
the engine is started if the collision warning
system is activated.
The audible warning signal can be activated/
deactivated by selecting the alternative On or
Off in Car settings Collision warning
settings Warning sound.
NOTE
•
When adaptive cruise control is used,
the warning light and signal will be used
by cruise control, even if they have been
deactivated by the driver.
•
In situations where traffic is moving at
considerably different speeds, or if the
vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, warnings may be considered to be late, even
if the setting Long has been selected.
Setting a warning distance
This setting determines the distance at which
the visual and audible warnings are triggered.
Select Long, Normal or Short under Car
settings Collision warning settings
Warning distance
The warning distance determines the level of

Collision warning with Auto-brake*
Limitations
Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the driver is
not looking straight ahead may make the visual
warning signal in the windshield difficult to see.
For this reason, always activate the audible
warning signal in such conditions.
NOTE
The visual warning signal may be temporarily disengaged in the event of high passenger compartment temperature due to strong
sunlight, etc. If this occurs, the audible
warning signal will be used, even if it has
been deactivated in the menu system.
Warnings may not appear if the distance to the
vehicle ahead is very small or if steering wheel
and pedal movements are great, for example,
due to a very active driving style.
WARNING
NOTE
•
In certain situations, the system cannot
provide warnings or warning may be
delayed if traffic conditions or other
external factors make it impossible for
the radar sensor or camera to detect the
vehicle ahead.
•
Warnings may not be provided if the
distance to the vehicle ahead is short,
or if movements of the steering wheel/
brake pedal are great, such as during
active driving.
•
•
The sensor system has a limited range
for stationary or slow-moving vehicles
and may therefore give delayed or no
warnings if your vehicle’s speed is
above approximately 45 mph
(70 km/h).
Warnings for stationary or slow-moving
vehicles may not be provided in dark
conditions.
If warnings are given too frequently, the
warning distance can be reduced (see
page 162. This causes the system to provide later warnings, which decreases the
total number of warnings provided.
The camera’s limitations
The camera is used by Collision Warning with
Auto-brake, Driver Alert Control (see
page 183), and Lane Departure Warning (see
page 186).
04
NOTE
•
To help protect the camera in very hot
conditions, it may be temporarily
switched off for approximately 15
minutes after the engine has been
started.
•
Keep the section of the windshield in
front of the camera clean and free of ice,
snow, or condensation.
The Collision Warning system uses the same
radar sensors as Adaptive Cruise Control. For
more information on the radar sensor and its
limitations, see page 176.
If no warning is given, or if a warning is delayed,
Auto-brake will also not be provided or will be
delayed.

The camera has the same limitations as
the human eye. In other words, its
“vision is impaired” by adverse weather
conditions such as heavy snowfall,
dense fog, etc. These conditions may
reduce the function of systems that
depend on the camera or cause these
systems to temporarily stop functioning.
•
Never place any objects, decals, etc.,

road, a dirty road surface, or unclear
lane marker lines may drastically reduce
the camera’s capacity to detect the side
of a lane or another vehicle.
Fault tracing and actions
If the message Windshield sensors

City Safety™
Introduction
City Safety™1 is a support system designed to
help the driver avoid low speed collisions when
driving in slow-moving, stop-and-go traffic.
City Safety™ is not active if your vehicle’s
speed is below approximately 2 mph (4 km/h).
This means that City Safety™ will not react if
your vehicle approaches another vehicle at
very low speed, for example, when parking.
The function is active at speeds ranging from
approximately 2-18 mph (4-30 km/h) and
assists the driver by applying the brakes automatically, thereby avoiding or helping to
reduce the effects of a collision.
City Safety™ is designed to intervene as late
as possible to help avoid unnecessary activation.
means that the system cannot help the driver
in all situations.
City Safety™ should not be used to alter the
way in which the driver operates the vehicle.
The driver should never rely solely on this system to safely stop the vehicle.
Normally, the occupants of the vehicle will not
be aware of City Safety™ except when the
system intervenes when a low-speed collision
is imminent.
If the vehicle is also equipped with the optional
Collision Warning with Auto-brake system, the
two systems interact. For more information
about the Collision Warning with Auto-brake
system, see page 161.
WARNING
•
City Safety™ is a supplemental aid to
the driver. It can never replace the
driver’s attention to traffic conditions or
his/her responsibility for operating the
vehicle in a safe manner.
•
City Safety™ does not function in all
driving situations or in all traffic, weather
or road conditions.
•
City Safety™ only reacts to vehicles
traveling in the same direction as your
vehicle and does not react to small vehicles, bicycles or motorcycles or to people or animals.
•
City Safety™ is not activated when your
vehicle is backing up.
•
City Safety™ functions at speeds up to
18 mph (30 km/h). This system can help
prevent a collision if the difference in
speed between your vehicle and the
vehicle ahead is less than 9 mph
(15 km/h). If the difference in speed is
greater, a collision cannot be avoided
but the speed at which the collision
occurs can be reduced. The driver must
apply the vehicle’s brakes for full braking effect.
•
Never wait for City Safety™ to intervene
in a potential collision situation. The
City Safety™ triggers brief, forceful braking if a
low-speed collision is imminent. However, the
system will not intervene in situations where
the driver actively steers the vehicle or applies
the brakes, even if a collision cannot be avoided. This is done in order to always give the
driver’s actions highest priority.
City Safety™ activates in situations where the
driver has not applied the brakes in time, which

Safety™ can help prevent a collision from
taking place.
• If the difference in speed is between
approximately 10-18 mph (16-30 km/h),
City Safety™ alone cannot avoid a collision. The driver must apply the brakes for
full braking effect.
Function
When the function activates and applies the
brakes, a message will appear in the information display to indicate that the system is/has
been active.
04
NOTE
City Safety™ monitors traffic ahead of you
using a laser sensor mounted in the upper section of the windshield. If a collision is imminent,
City Safety™ will automatically apply the
brakes at approximately 50% of the vehicle’s
full braking effect if you are traveling at speeds
between 2-18 mph (4-30 km/h).
When City Safety™ applies the brakes,
the brake lights will illuminate.
•
In cases where City Safety™ has stopped the vehicle, the system will then
release the brakes. The driver must
apply the brakes to keep the vehicle at
a standstill.
NOTE
The City Safety™ function is activated automatically each time the engine has been
switched off and restarted.
On and Off
In certain situations, it may be desirable to
switch City Safety™ off, such as when driving
in close quarters where leaves, branches, etc.

See page 79 for information on ignition modes.
The sensor used by City Safety™ is designed
to detect cars and other larger motor vehicles
ahead of your vehicle in both daylight and darkness.
However, there are certain limitations and the
laser sensor’s function may be reduced by, for
example, heavy rain or snowfall, or by dense
fog or thick, blowing dust or snow. Condensation, dirt, ice or snow on the windshield may
also interfere with the sensor’s function.
Objects such as warning flags hanging from
long objects on the roof or accessories such as
auxiliary lights or protective arches on the front
of the vehicle that are higher than the hood may
also impede the sensor’s function.
Braking distance to the vehicle ahead increases on slippery road surfaces, which may
reduce City Safety’s capacity to avoid a collision. In situations like this, the DSTC system
(see page 156) will help provide the best possible braking capacity and stability.
City Safety™ emits infrared light and measures
the way in which the light is reflected. Therefore, vehicles or objects with low-reflective sur-

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*
Introduction
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is an optional
system designed to assist the driver by maintaining a set speed or a set distance to the
vehicle ahead. It is primarily intended for use
on long straight roads in steady traffic, such as
on highways and other main roads.
WARNING
•
•
Do not use the adaptive cruise control
system in demanding driving conditions
such as city traffic, winding roads, at
intersections, on slippery surfaces, in
poor visibility, heavy rain, etc.
Maintenance of cruise control components must only be performed by an
authorized Volvo workshop.
Function
WARNING
•
Adaptive cruise control cannot cover all
driving situations and traffic, weather
and road conditions. The Function section provides information about limitations that the driver must be aware of
before using the adaptive cruise control.
•
This system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however,
intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is
responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed and must intervene if
adaptive cruise control does not maintain a suitable speed or suitable distance.
04
Function overview
Warning light, braking by driver required
Controls

Adaptive cruise control consists of:
• A cruise control system to maintain a set
speed
• A system to maintain a set distance to the
vehicle ahead (expressed as a time interval. For example, you can choose to
remain approximately 2 seconds behind
the vehicle ahead).

WARNING
04
•
Adaptive cruise control is not a collision
avoidance system. The driver is always
responsible for applying the brakes if
the system does not detect another
vehicle.
•
Adaptive cruise control does not react
to slow moving or stationary vehicles.
The distance to the vehicle ahead (in the same
lane) is measured by a radar sensor. Your vehicle's speed is regulated by acceleration and
braking. The brakes may emit a sound when
they are being modulated by the adaptive
cruise control system. This is normal.
WARNING
The brake pedal moves when the adaptive
cruise control system modulates the
brakes. Do not rest your foot under the
brake pedal.
The adaptive cruise control system is designed
to follow the vehicle ahead of you in the same
lane, at a set time interval.
of the vehicle ahead exceeds the speed that
you have set.
The adaptive cruise control system is designed
to smoothly regulate speed. However, the
driver must apply the brakes in situations that
require immediate braking. This applies when
there are great differences in speed between
vehicles, or if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly.
WARNING
Due to limitations in the radar sensor, braking may occur unexpectedly or not at all,
see page 176.
Adaptive cruise control can only be activated
at speeds above 20mph (30 km/h). If speed
falls below 20 mph (30 km/h) or if engine speed
(rpm) becomes too low, adaptive cruise control
disengages and will no longer modulate the
brakes. In situations when adaptive cruise control cannot be activated Cruise Control

Warning light-driver braking required
Adaptive cruise control has a braking capacity
that is equivalent to approximately 30% of the
vehicle's total braking capacity. In situations
requiring more brake force than ACC can provide, if the driver does not apply the brakes, an
audible signal will sound and a red warning
light will illuminate in the windshield to alert the
driver to react.
NOTE
Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light
contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the
driver is not looking straight ahead may
make the visual warning signal in the windshield difficult to see.
WARNING
Cruise control only warns of vehicles
detected by the radar sensor, see
page 176. In some cases there may be no
warning or the warning may be delayed. The
driver should always apply the brakes when
necessary.
If the radar sensor has not detected a vehicle
ahead, the system will then attempt to maintain
the set speed. This is also the case if the speed

Introduction
Time interval information is only given for a
vehicle that is driving ahead of your vehicle, in
the same lane, and in the same direction. No
information is provided for vehicles driving
toward you, moving very slowly, or at a standstill.
> The indicator light in the button illuminates when the function is on.
NOTE
Distance Alert is part of Adaptive Cruise Control and is a function that provides information
about the time interval to the vehicle ahead.
Distance Alert is in active mode while Adaptive Cruise Control is active.
Distance Alert is active at speeds above
approximately 20 mph (30 km/h).
WARNING

Driver Alert System*
Introduction
The Driver Alert System is designed to help a
driver who may be becoming fatigued or who
is inadvertently leaving the lane.
Driver Alert Control (DAC)–general
information
DAC is designed to help detect a slowly changing driving pattern. It is primarily intended to be
used on main roads and is not meant for use in
city traffic.
The Driver Alert System consists of two different functions that can be switched on together
or separately.
WARNING
• Driver Alert Control (DAC)
• Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
The function deactivates if speed goes under
37 mph (60 km/h).
Both functions use a camera that is dependent
on the road/lane being clearly marked by painted lines on each side.
WARNING
The Driver Alert system does not function in
all situations and is designed to be a supplementary aid. It is not, however, intended
to replace the driver’s attention and judgement.
G017332
When one or both of the functions has been
switched on, it is in standby mode and is activated when the vehicle exceeds a speed of
40 mph (65 km/h).
This function is intended to alert the driver if
his/her driving becomes erratic, such as if the
driver is distracted or fatigued.
•
DAC is not intended to extend the duration of driving. Always plan breaks at
regular intervals to help remain alert.
•
In certain cases, fatigue may not affect
the driver’s behavior. In situations of
this type, no warning will be provided.
Therefore, it is important to take breaks
at regular intervals, regardless of
whether or not DAC has given a warning.
04
Limitations
NOTE
In certain situations, DAC may provide warnings even if the driver’s driving pattern has not
become erratic.
The camera has certain limitations, see
page 163.
A camera monitors the painted lines marking
the lane in which the vehicle is traveling and
compares the direction of the road with the
driver’s movements of the steering wheel. The
driver is alerted if the vehicle does not follow
the lane smoothly.
• if the driver is testing the LDW function
• in strong crosswinds
• on grooved road surfaces.

Audible signal
The Park Assist system uses an intermittent
tone that pulses faster as you come close to an
object, and becomes constant when you are
within approximately 1 ft (30 cm) of an object
in front of or behind the vehicle (example 2 in
the illustration). If there are objects within this
distance both behind and in front of the vehicle,
the tone alternates between front and rear
speakers.
If the volume of another source from the audio
system is high, this will be automatically lowered.
The markers in the display indicate that one or
more of the four sensors has detected an
object. The greater the number of markers, the
closer the vehicle is to the object.

Park Assist Camera (PAC)*
Introduction
Function
Ambient lighting conditions
The camera automatically monitors the ambient lighting conditions behind the vehicle and
constantly adjusts sensitivity to light. This may
cause the brightness and quality of the image
on the screen to vary slightly. Sensitivity to light
is increased in dark conditions or in bad
weather, which may affect image quality.
The Park Assist Camera uses the display on the
dashboard to show the area behind the car
while you are backing up.
PAC also shows guiding lines in the on-screen
image to indicate the direction that the vehicle
will take as it moves rearward, which helps
simplify parallel parking, backing into a tight
space or when attaching a trailer to the vehicle.
If the image on the screen seems too dark,
brightness can be increased with the thumb
wheel on the lighting panel.
NOTE
PAC can only be installed on vehicles equipped with the Volvo’s own navigation system
VNS.
WARNING
•
PAC is designed to be a supplementary
aid when parking the vehicle. It is not,
however, intended to replace the
driver’s attention and judgment.
•
The camera has blind spots where it
cannot detect objects or people behind
the vehicle.
•
Pay particular attention to people or animals that are close to the vehicle.
04
NOTE
The driver sees what is behind the vehicle and
if a person or animal should suddenly appear
from the side.
PAC is mounted on the tailgate, near the opening handle.
The camera has built-in electronics that help
reduce the “fish-eye” effect so that the image
shown on the screen is as natural as possible.
This may cause some objects on the screen to
“lean,” which is normal.
WARNING
Objects seen on the screen may be closer
than they appear to be.
In order to function properly, the camera
lens should always be kept clean. This is
particularly important in bad weather. Keep
the lens free of dirt, ice or snow.
Using PAC
Activation
PAC is activated when the gear selector is
moved to R if the system is set to Automatic
under Parking camera settings in the menu
system.
If the Volvo Navigation System (VNS) is in use,
PAC will automatically override the navigation
system to show the camera's image on the
screen instead of navigation information, for as
long as reverse gear is selected.

Blind Spot Information System*
Introduction
WARNING
•
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.
•
G021426
04
As the driver, you have full responsibility
for changing lanes in a safe manner.
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 system is based on digital camera technology. The cameras 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), see
the illustration, the indicator light in the door
panel illuminates. The light will glow continuously to alert the driver of the vehicle in the
blind area.
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 197) 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 196).
G021427
The BLIS system should only be repaired by
a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
NOTE
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.
Areas monitored by BLIS Distance A = approx.
31 ft. (9.5 meters), Distance B = approx. 10 ft.

Blind Spot Information System*
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
•
BLIS does not react to cyclists or
mopeds.
•
BLIS does not react to vehicles that are
standing still.
•
The function of the BLIS cameras may
be affected by intense light, or when
driving at night in areas where there are
no external sources of light (e.g., street
lights, other vehicles, etc.). In such
cases, the system may react as if the
cameras were obscured.
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
•
•
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 function when your vehicle is backing up.
How BLIS functions in daylight and
darkness
Daylight
BLIS reacts to the shape of surrounding vehicles. The system is designed to help detect
motor vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses,
motorcycles, etc.
•
In both of the above mentioned conditions, a message will appear in the information display.
•
When driving in such conditions, the
system's function will be limited or it
may be temporarily switched off, see
page 196 for instructions.
•
When the message is no longer displayed, BLIS will return to normal function.
•
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, dense fog, etc.

tion will be lower with the air conditioning
on and the windows closed than with the
air conditioning off and the windows open.
Observe the following rules:
• Bring the engine to normal operating tem-
05
perature 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
and hard braking.
• Use the transmission's Drive (D) position
• Using the onboard trip computer's fuel
consumption modes can help you learn
how to drive more economically.
Other factors that decrease gas mileage
are:

Incorrect front end alignment
Some of the above mentioned items and others
are checked at the standard maintenance
intervals.
as often as possible and avoid using kickdown.
•
•
Close the windows
Set the ventilation system control to air
flow to floor, windshield and side windows and the blower control to its highest setting.
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.
• Do not exceed posted speed limits.
• Avoid carrying unnecessary items (extra
load) in the vehicle.
• Maintain correct tire pressure. Check tire
pressure regularly (when tires are cold).

Driving recommendations
Driving through water
• The vehicle can be driven through water up
CAUTION
to a depth of approximately 10 in. (25 cm),
at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h).
•
Engine damage will occur if water is
drawn into the air cleaner.
• Take particular care when driving through
•
If the vehicle is driven through water
deeper than 10 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.
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.
•
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
vehicle is in water, do not attempt to
restart it. Have the vehicle towed out of
the water.
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.
Engine and cooling system
Under special conditions, for example when
driving in hilly terrain, extreme heat or with
heavy loads, there is a risk that the engine and
cooling system will overheat. Proceed as follows to avoid overheating the engine.
• Maintain a low speed when driving with a
trailer up long, steep hills.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately
WARNING
The cooling fan may start or continue to
operate (for up to 6 minutes) after the engine
has been switched off.
• Remove any auxiliary lights from in front of
the grille when driving in hot weather conditions.
• Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
if driving with a trailer in hilly terrain. The oil
temperature could become too high.
Conserving electrical current
Keep the following in mind to help minimize
battery drain:
05
• When the engine is not running, avoid
using ignition mode II. Many electrical systems (the audio system, the optional navigation system, power windows, etc) will
function in ignition modes 0 and I. These
modes reduce 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.
• The optional 12 volt socket in the cargo
area provides electrical current even with

battery.
Before a long distance trip
It is always worthwhile to have your vehicle
checked by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician before driving long distances.
Your retailer will also be able to supply you with
bulbs, fuses, spark plugs and wiper blades for
your use in the event that problems occur.
05
As a minimum, the following items should be
checked before any long trip:
•
Check that engine runs smoothly and that
fuel consumption is normal.
•
•
•
•
•
Check for fuel, oil, and fluid leakage
Have the transmission oil level checked.
Check condition of drive belts.
• Check all lights, including high beams.
• Reflective warning triangles are legally
required in some states/provinces.
• Have a word with a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician 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.
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). The use of "recycled" antifreeze is not approved by Volvo. Different
types of antifreeze must not be mixed.
Check state of the battery's charge.
• Volvo recommends using only genuine
Examine tires carefully (the spare tire as
well), and replace those that are worn.
Check tire pressures.
• Try to keep the fuel tank well filled – this

helps prevent 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 type, 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 287 for more
information on engine oil.
NOTE
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is
changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at owner request and at additional charge.
• 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
page 264.
• To prevent the washer fluid reservoir from
freezing, add washer solvents containing
antifreeze. This is important since dirt is
often splashed on the windshield during

Fuel requirements
Deposit control gasoline (detergent
additives)
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
control gasolines will help ensure good drivability and fuel economy. If you are not sure
whether the gasoline contains deposit control
additives, check with the service station operator.
NOTE
05
Volvo does not recommend the use of external fuel injector cleaning systems.
Unleaded fuel
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-
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.
Volvo allows the use of the following "oxygenated" fuels; however, the octane ratings listed
on page 209 must still be met.
Alcohol – Ethanol
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 light) located on your instrument panel may light. If this occurs, please
return your vehicle to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for service.
Gasoline containing alcohol and ethers,
"Oxygenated fuels"
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 sea-
I
nf
or
mat

sonal air quality standards, some areas require
the use of "oxygenated" fuel.
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.

NOTE
When switching to higher octane fuel or
changing gasoline brands, it may be necessary to fill the tank more than once before a
difference in engine operation is noticeable.
G028920
Fuel Formulations
Typical pump octane label
Volvo recommends premium fuel for best performance, but using 87 octane 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.
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
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
change gasoline brands to fully utilize your
• refueling only at gas stations with vapor
recovery systems that fully seal the mouth
of the filler neck during refueling
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.
05
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

What is an Onboard Diagnostic System
(OBD II)?
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.

"max" markings.
• 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 your Volvo
retailer for additional information.

• If your Check Engine (MIL) light is lit, your
vehicle may fail inspection.
• 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
information may be incomplete and "not

been switched off before 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. The level must be between the
MIN and MAX marks.
3. Add oil if necessary. If the level is close to
the MIN mark, add approximately
0.5 US quarts (0.5 liters) of oil.

Location of the coolant reservoir
CAUTION
•
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.
Normally, the coolant does not need to be
changed. If the system must be drained, consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

Replacing fuses
Location of the fuse boxes
There are relay/fuse boxes located in the
engine compartment, the passenger compartment, and the cargo area.
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.
If the wire is broken, insert a new fuse of the
same color and amperage (written on the fuse).

Wheels and tires
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), or on the inside of the fuel filler door
on Canadian models.
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. As such, 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 AWD
or DSTC system, these tires are not
designed for winter driving, and should be
replaced with winter tires when weather
conditions dictate.
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.
Certain models are equipped with "all-season"
tires, which provide a somewhat higher degree
of road holding on slippery surfaces than tires
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.
New Tires
Tire age
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.
You should replace the spare tire when you
replace the other road tires due to the aging of
the spare.
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 pages 260 and 260.
• Drive smoothly: avoid fast starts, hard
06
braking and tire screeching.
G021823
Introduction
Remember that tires are perishable goods. As
of 2000, the manufacturing week and year

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.
NOTE
Tire rotation is not included in regularly

only at customer request, at additional
charge.
Your Volvo retailer can also provide guidance
based on your particular driving circumstances.
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

Vehicle loading
Properly loading your vehicle will provide maximum return of vehicle design performance.
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:
06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tires
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.
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 219.
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
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS/
CMVSS) label. The total load on each axle must
never exceed its maximum permissible weight.
Gross vehicle weight (GVW)
The vehicle's curb weight + cargo + passengers.
1
load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400 – 750
(5 × 150) = 650 lbs.)
NOTE
•
The location of the various labels in your
vehicle can be found on page 281.
•
A table listing important weight limits for
your vehicle can be found on page
284.
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.
3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver
and passengers from XXX kilograms or
XXX pounds.
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 lb. passengers in your vehicle, the
amount of available cargo and luggage
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.
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. Replacement tires
with a higher limit than the originals do
not increase the vehicle's GVW rating
limitations.

REQUIREMENTS IN ADDITION TO THESE
GRADES
Quality grades can be found, where applicable, on the tire sidewall between the tread
shoulder and maximum section width. For
example:
may have poor traction performance. The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on
braking (straight-ahead) traction tests and is
not a measure of cornering (turning) traction.
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.
Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A
06
TEMPERATURE
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.
The temperature grades are AA (the highest),
A, 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.
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are
AA, A, B, and C, as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C

different than the original tires and wheels,
chains in some cases CANNOT be used.
Sufficient clearances between chains and

Introduction
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.
The system consists of an air compressor, a

Wheels and tires
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.)
06
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.
er'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.

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.
2. Re-inflate the tire(s) to the correct pressure
(consult the tire pressure placard or the
tables on pages 260 and 260.
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
will erase the warning text and the warning
light will go out.
WARNING
Incorrect inflation pressure could lead to tire
failure, resulting in a loss of control of the
vehicle.

Changing wheels with TPMS
Please note the following when changing or
replacing the factory installed TPMS wheels/
tires on 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 a
trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
•
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.
• 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.
