General Information
Shiftlock (automatic transmission)
When your car is parked, the gear selector is locked in the (P) ark position. To release the selector from
this position, turn the ignition key to position II (or start the engine), depress the brake pedal, press the
button on the front side of the gear selector and move the selector from (P) ark.
Keylock (automatic transmission)
When you switch off the ignition, the gear selector must be in the (P) ark position before the key can be
removed from the ignition switch.
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
The ABS system in your car performs a self- diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of
approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible
from the ABS control module. This is normal.
Fuel filler door
The fuel filler door, located on the right rear fender, is connected to your car's central locking system.
The driver's door must be unlocked before the fuel filler door can be opened.
When you lock your car using the central locking button on the driver's door or remote control, the fuel
filler door also locks after a 10-minute delay. If you lock your car with the fuel filler door open, you will
need to unlock the car to allow the fuel filler door to be closed again.
Fuel filler cap
After refueling, close the fuel filler cap by turning it clockwise until it clicks into place. If this cap is not
closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp ("
Check Engine" light) will illuminate.
Important information
Before you operate your car for the first time, please familiarize yourself with the new- engine oil
consumption information on page 128. You should also be familiar with the information in chapters one,
two and four of this manual. Information contained in the balance of the manual is extremely useful and
should be read after operating the vehicle for the first time. The manual is structured so that it can be
used for reference. For this reason, it should be kept in the car for ready access.
Do not export your Volvo to another country before investigating that country's applicable safety and
exhaust emission requirements. In some cases it may be difficult or impossible to comply with these
requirements. Modifications to the emission control system( s) may render your Volvo not certifiable for
legal operation in the U. S., Canada and other countries.
All information, illustrations and specifications contained in this manual are based on the latest product
information available at the time of publication. Please note that some vehicles may be equipped
differently, depending on special legal requirements. Optional equipment described in this manual may
not be available in all markets.
Volvo reserves the right to make model changes at any time, or to change specifications or design

without notice and without incurring obligation.
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 freons, lead
chromates, naphtanates, asbestos, mercury and cadmium; and reduced the amount 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 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%
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, refined purification systems and cleaner fuels
are bringing us closer to our goal.
After Volvo cars 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 car, which makes the car among the
most recycled industrial products. In order to have efficient and well controlled recycling, many Volvo
variants have printed dismantling manuals, indicating the weight and material of individual components.
For Volvo, all homogeneous plastic parts weighing more than 1.7 oz. (50 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.
● Follow the recommended maintenance schedule.
● Drive at a constant speed.
● See an authorized Volvo retailer as soon as possible for inspection if the check engine (malfunction
indicator) lamp 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 car, use Volvo's own car care products, all of which have systematically been
adapted to the environment.

On the surface of the radiator in the engine compartment, there is a special coating called Prem-Air.
Prem-Air works as a catalytic converter, converting most of the ground level ozone passing through the
radiator into oxygen, thereby reducing harmful ground-level ozone.

Seat belts
Not wearing a seat belt is like believing "It'll never happen to me!" Volvo, the inventor of the three-point
seat belt, urges you and all occupants of your car to wear seat belts and ensure that children are properly
restrained, using an infant, car or booster seat determined by age, weight and height. Volvo also believes
no child should sit in the front seat of a car.
NOTE: Legislation in your state or province may mandate seat belt usage. Additionally, most states and
provinces have already made it mandatory for occupants of a car to use seat belts.
So, urging you to "buckle up" is not just our recommendation - legislation in your state or province may
mandate seat belt usage. The few seconds it takes to buckle up may one day allow you to say, "It's a
good thing I was wearing my seat belt."
NOTE: A chime will sound several times if the driver has not fastened his/her seat belt.

2002 Volvo S60
To buckle 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
● if the vehicle is leaning excessively
● when driving in turns For the seat belt to provide maximum protection in the event of an accident, it
must be worn correctly. When wearing the seat belt remember:
● The belt should not be twisted or turned.
● The lap 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.
Before exiting the car, check that the seat belt retracts fully after being unbuckled. If necessary, guide
the belt back into the retractor slot.
Child seats:
Please refer to page 27 for information on securing child seats with the seat belts.
pg. 11 Seat belts
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_01a.htm (2 of 13)12/30/2006 3:54:57 PM
2002 Volvo S60
During pregnancy
Pregnant women should always wear seat belts. Remember that the belt should always be positioned in
such a way as to avoid any possible pressure on the abdomen. The lap portion of the belt should be
located low, as shown in the above illustration.
WARNING!
Seat belts:
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.
● Never repair the belt on your own; have this work done by an authorized Volvo retailer 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.

pg. 12 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
Driver's side airbag
As an enhancement to the three-point seat belt system, your Volvo is equipped with a Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS) to complement the three-point seat belt system. The inflatable airbag is installed
folded up in the center of the steering wheel. The wheel is embossed with SRS.
WARNING!
Never drive an SRS equipped car with your hands on the steering wheel pad / airbag
housing.

2002 Volvo S60
Passenger side airbag
The airbag on the front passenger side is folded up in a compartment above the glove compartment. The
panel is embossed SRS.
WARNING!
No objects, accessory equipment or stickers may be placed on, attached to, or installed near the SRS
cover in the center of the steering wheel, the SRS cover above the glove compartment or the area
affected by airbag deployment.
WARNING!
As its name implies, SRS is designed to be a SUPPLEMENT to - not a replacement for - the threepoint belt system. 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.
When installing any optional equipment, make sure that the SRS system is not damaged. Do not
attempt to service any component of the SRS yourself. Attempting to do so may result in serious
personal injury. If a problem arises, take your car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for
inspection as soon as possible.

2002 Volvo S60
pg. 13 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
NOTE: Deployment of SRS components occurs only one time during an accident. In a collision where
deployment occurs, the airbags and seat belt tensioners 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.
NOTE: Volvo's dual-threshold, dual-stage 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 dual-stage airbags are
triggered at just 70% of their total capacity. If the impact is more severe, the dual-stage airbags are
triggered at full capacity.

2002 Volvo S60
WARNING!
Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also
recommend that occupants under 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) in height who have outgrown these devices
sit in the rear seat with the seat belt fastened. Never drive with the airbags deployed. The fact that
they hang out can impair the steering of your car. Other safety systems can also be damaged. The
smoke and dust formed when the airbags are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation in the event of
prolonged exposure.
pg. 14 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
WARNING!
Children must never be allowed in the front passenger's seat. 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. See page 27 for guidelines.
Occupants in the front passenger's seat must never sit on the edge of the seat, sit leaning toward the
instrument panel or otherwise 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.
Feet must be on the floor, e. g. not on the dash, seat or out of the window. No objects or accessory
equipment, e. g. dash covers, may be placed on, attached to, or installed near the SRS hatch (the area
above the glove compartment) or the area affected by airbag deployment (see illustration on page 12).
There should be no loose articles, e. g. coffee cups, on the floor, seat or dash area. Never try to open
the SRS cover on the steering wheel or the passenger side dash. This should only be done by an
authorized Volvo service technician.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants

Warning light in the instrument panel
A self-diagnostic system incorporated in the sensor monitors the SRS. This system does not, however,
monitor the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags. If a fault is detected, the warning light will
illuminate. The light is included in the warning/indicator light cluster in the instrument panel. Normally,
the SRS warning lamp should light up when the ignition key is turned to positions I, II or III and should
go out after 7 seconds or when the engine is started. Check that this light is functioning properly every
time the car is started.
The following items are monitored by the self-diagnostic system:
●
●
●
Sensor unit
Cable harness
Gas generator
WARNING!
If the SRS warning light stays on after the engine has started or if it comes on while you are driving,
drive the car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for inspection as soon as possible.
pg. 15 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
NOTE: The information on this page does not pertain to the Side Impact Protection System airbags.
When are the airbags deployed?
The SRS system is designed to deploy during certain frontal or front-angular collisions, impacts, or
decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and object impacted. The SRS sensor is
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 tensioners or airbags to be
deployed. If the airbags have been deployed, we recommend the following:
● Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer. Never drive with the airbags deployed.
● Have an authorized Volvo retailer replace the SRS system components.
● Use only new, Genuine Volvo Parts when replacing SRS components (airbags, seat belts, tensioners,
etc.).
When are the airbags NOT deployed?
Not all frontal collisions activate the SRS system. If the collision involves a nonrigid object (e. g., a
snow drift or bush), or a rigid, fixed object at a low speed, the SRS system 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.
Seat belts - the heart of the Volvo safety system
The heart of the Volvo safety system is the three-point seat belt (a Volvo invention)! In order for the
SRS system to provide the protection intended, seat belts must be worn at all times by everyone in the
car. The SRS system is a supplement to the seat belts.
WARNING!
Never drive with the airbags deployed. The fact that they hang out can impair the steering of your car.
Other safety systems can also be damaged. The smoke and dust formed when the airbags are
deployed can cause skin and eye irritation in the event of prolonged exposure.
pg. 16 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
WARNING!
If your car has been subjected to flood conditions (e. g. soaked carpeting/standing water on the floor
of the vehicle) or if your car has become flood-damaged in any way, do not attempt to start the
vehicle or put the key in the ignition before disconnecting the battery (see below). This may cause
airbag deployment which could result in personal injury. Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo
retailer for repairs.
Automatic transmission:
Before attempting to tow the car, use the following procedure to override the shiftlock system to
move the gear selector to the neutral position.
●
●
●
●
●
Switch off the ignition for at least 10 minutes and disconnect the battery
Wait at least one minute
Insert the key in the ignition and turn it to position II
Press firmly on the brake pedal.
Move the gear selector from (P) ark to the (N) eutral position.
There is no maintenance to perform on the SRS yourself. The month and year shown on the decal on the
door pillar indicate when you should contact your Volvo retailer for specific servicing or replacement of
airbags and seat belt tensioners. This service must be performed by an authorized Volvo retailer.
Should you have any questions about the SRS system, please contact your authorized Volvo retailer or

pg. 17 Airbags (Supplemental Restraint System)
Front airbag (SRS) system
As an enhancement to the three-point seat belt system, your Volvo is equipped with a Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS). The Volvo SRS consists of an airbag (2) on both the driver's and passenger's
sides and seat belt tensioners in both front door pillars. The system is designed to supplement the
protection provided by the three-point seat belt system. All three rear seat belts are also equipped with
tensioners.
The SRS system is indicated by the "SRS" embossed on the steering wheel pad and above the glove
compartment, and by decals on both sun visors and on the front and far right side of the dash.
The airbags are folded and located in the steering wheel hub and above the glove compartment.
Deployment: The SRS airbags are designed to deploy during certain frontal or front-angular collisions,
impacts, or decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and object impacted. The
airbags may also deploy in certain non-frontal collisions where rapid deceleration occurs.
The airbag system includes gas generators (1) surrounded by the airbags (2) and front seat belt
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_01a.htm (10 of 13)12/30/2006 3:54:57 PM

tensioners for both of the front seats. To deploy the system, the sensor (3) activates the gas generators
causing the airbags to be inflated with nitrogen gas.
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 tensioners also deploy, minimizing any seat
belt slack. The entire process, including inflation and deflation of the airbags, takes approximately twotenths of a second.
WARNING!
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 of airbag( s) deployment.
Never try to repair any part of the SRS or SIPS bag systems yourself. Any interference in the system
could cause malfunction and serious injury. All work on these systems should be performed by an
authorized Volvo retailer.
pg. 18 Side airbags (SIPS airbags)
SIPS airbag (front seats only)
As an enhancement to the structural Side Impact Protection System built into your car, the car is also
equipped with Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags. The SIPS airbag system consists of airbag
modules built into the sides of both front seat backrests, wires and gas generators/sensor units (see
illustration on next page).

The SIPS airbag system is designed to help increase occupant protection in the event of certain side
impact collisions. The SIPS airbags are designed to deploy only during certain side-impact collisions,
depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and point of impact. The airbags are not designed to
deploy in all side impact situations.
NOTE: SIPS airbag deployment (one airbag) occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the
impact. The airbags are not designed to deploy in all side impact situations.
*A SIPS airbag warning decal is also located at the end of the instrument panel on the driver's side of the
car.
WARNING!
the Side Impact Protection System and the three-point seat belt system. It is not designed to deploy
during collisions from the front or rear of the car or in rollover situations.
The use of seat covers on the front seats may impede SIPS airbag deployment.
No objects, accessory equipment or stickers may be placed on, attached to or installed near, the SIPS
airbag system or in the area affected by SIPS airbag deployment (see illustration in the center column
above). Never try to open or repair any components of the SIPS airbag system. This should be done
only by an authorized Volvo service technician.
In order for the SIPS airbag to provide its best protection, both front seat occupants should sit in an
upright position with the seat belt properly fastened.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the occupants of the vehicle in the event of
an accident.

pg. 20 Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Volvo Inflatable Curtain (VIC)
This system consists of inflatable curtains located along the sides of the roof liners, stretching from the
center of both front side windows to the rear edge of the rear side door windows. It is designed to help
protect the heads of the occupants of the front seats and the occupant of the outboard rear seating
positions in certain side impact collisions.
NOTE: IC system deployment occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the impact. In certain
side impacts, BOTH the Inflatable Curtain (IC) and the Side Impact Airbag System (SIPS-bag) will
deploy, whereas, in some cases, ONLY the Inflatable Curtain (IC) will deploy. In cases where BOTH
the IC and the SIPS-bag deploy, deployment will occur simultaneously. If the inflatable curtain deploys,
it remains inflated for approximately 3 seconds.
WARNING!
Impact Protection System. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the front or rear of the
car or in most rollover situations.
Never try to open or repair any components of the IC system. This should be done only by an
authorized Volvo service technician.
The inflatable curtains are designed to deploy only during certain side-impact collisions, depending
on the crash severity, angle, speed and impact. The inflatable curtains are not designed to deploy in

occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened; adults using the seat
belt and children using the proper child restraint system. Only adults should sit in the front seats.
Children must never be allowed in the front passenger seat. See page 27 for guidelines. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants in an accident

The WHIPS system consists of specially designed hinges and brackets on the front seat backrests and
head restraints designed to help absorb some of the energy generated in a collision from the rear (" rearended").
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 the
whiplash effect.
WARNING!
The WHIPS system is designed to supplement the other safety systems in your car. 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.
If your car has been involved in a collision, the front seat backrests must be inspected by an
authorized Volvo retailer 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.
WARNING!
If the rear seat backrests are folded down, cargo must be secured to prevent it from sliding forward
against the front seat backrests in the event of a collision from the rear. This could interfere with the
action of the WHIPS system.
The WHIPS system is designed to function in certain collisions from the rear, depending on the crash
severity, angle and speed.
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.

WARNING!
and the folded rear seat could impede the function of the WHIPS system. If the rear seat is folded
down, the occupied front seats must be adjusted forward so that they do not touch the folded rear seat.
Boxes, suitcases, etc. wedged behind the front seats (see illustration in center column) could impede
the function of the WHIPS system.
pg. 24 Child safety
Child safety
Volvo recommends the proper use of restraint systems for all occupants including children. Remember
that, regardless of age and size, a child should always be properly restrained in a car.
Restraint systems for children are designed to be secured in the vehicle by lap belts or the lap portion of
a lap-shoulder belt. Such child restraint systems can help protect children in cars in the event of an
accident only if they are used properly. However, children could be endangered in a crash if the child
restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Failure to follow the installation instructions for your
child restraint can result in your child striking the vehicle's interior in a sudden stop.
Holding a child in your arms is NOT a suitable substitute for a child restraint system. In an accident, a
child held in a person's arms can be crushed between the vehicle's interior and an unrestrained person.
The child could also be injured by striking the interior, or by being ejected from the vehicle during a
sudden maneuver or impact. The same can also happen if the infant or child rides unrestrained on the
seat. Other occupants should also be properly restrained to help reduce the chance of injuring or
increasing the injury of a child.
All states and provinces have legislation governing how and where children should be carried in a car.
Find out the regulations existing in your state or province. Recent accident statistics have shown that
children are safer in rear seating positions than front seating positions when properly restrained. A child
restraint system can help protect a child in a vehicle. Here's what to look for when selecting a child
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_01b.htm (4 of 10)12/30/2006 3:54:58 PM
2002 Volvo S60
restraint system:
It should have a label certifying that it meets applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
(FMVSS 213) - or in Canada, CMVSS 213.
● Make sure the child restraint system is approved for the child's height, weight and development - the
label required by the standard or regulation, or instructions for infant restraints, typically provide this
information.
● In using any child restraint system, we urge you to carefully look over the instructions that are
provided with the restraint. Be sure you understand them and can use the device properly and safely in
this vehicle. A misused child restraint system can result in increased injuries for both the infant or child
and other occupants in the vehicle.
●
When a child has outgrown the child safety seat, you should use the rear seat with the standard seat belt
fastened. The best way to help protect the child here is to place the child on a cushion so that the seat
belt is properly located on the hips (see page 10). A specially designed and tested booster cushion (not
available in Canada) for children between the age of 3 and approximately 10 years, weighing 33 - 80 lbs
(15 - 36 kg) and 46 - 54" (117 - 137 cm) in height, can be obtained from your Volvo retailer.
WARNING!
Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also
recommend that children under 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) in height who have outgrown these devices
sit in the rear seat with the seat belt fastened.
Keep vehicle doors and trunk locked and keep keys out of a child's reach. Unsupervised children
could lock themselves in an open trunk and risk injury. Children should be taught not to play in
vehicles.
On hot days, the temperature in the trunk or 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.

ISOFIX fasteners and Seat guide (option)
The ISOFIX fasteners are available as a retailer-installed option in the rear seat on the outboard
positions.
Consult your Volvo retailer for more information on child safety accessories.
Volvo's own integrated booster cushion has been specially designed to help safeguard a child seated in
the center position of the rear seat. When using the integrated booster cushion, the child must be secured
with the vehicle's three-point seat belt. The booster cushion is approved for children weighing between
33 and 80 lbs (15 and 36 kg) and between 38 and 54 in (97 and 137 cm) in height.
The child should be properly seated on the booster cushion (see illustration above). It is essential that the
head restraint be adjusted properly to help support the child's head (see page 114).
The hip section of the three-point seat belt must fit snugly across the child's hips, not across the stomach.
The shoulder section of the three-point seat belt should be positioned across the chest and shoulder (see
illustration). The shoulder belt must never be placed behind the child's back or under the arm.
WARNING!
Failure to follow the manufacturer's instructions on the use of this child restraint system can result in
your child striking the vehicle's interior during a sudden stop or crash. In the event of a collision
while the integrated booster cushion was occupied, the entire booster cushion and seat belt must be
replaced. The booster cushion should also be replaced if it is badly worn or damaged in any way. This
work should be performed by an authorized Volvo retailer only. The booster cushion should be
cleaned while in place in the vehicle if possible. If this is not possible, please consult your Volvo
retailer.

2002 Volvo S60
WARNING!
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 which would require the removal of the top tether anchors or interfere with the
proper use of the top tether strap.
pg. 27 Child safety
Keeping child seats in place (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:
Attach the seat belt to the child seat according to the child seat manufacturer's instructions.
● Pull the seat belt out as far as possible.
● Insert the seat belt latch plate into the buckle (lock) in the usual way.
● Release the seat belt and pull it taut around the child seat. A sound from the seat belt retractor will be
audible at this time and is normal. The belt will now be locked in place. This function is automatically
disabled when the seat belt is unlocked and the belt is fully retracted.
●
WARNING!
Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also
recommend that children who have outgrown these devices sit in the rear seat with the seat belt
properly fastened.
Important!
Why Volvo believes no child should sit in the front seat of a car.
It's quite simple really. A front airbag is a very powerful device designed, by law, to help protect an
adult. 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 fifty 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:
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_01b.htm (8 of 10)12/30/2006 3:54:58 PM
2002 Volvo S60
Always wear your seat belt.
● Airbags are a SUPPLEMENTAL safety device which, when used with a three-point seat belt can help
reduce serious injuries during certain types of accidents. Volvo recommends that you do not disconnect
the airbag system in your vehicle.
● Volvo strongly recommends that ALL children sit in the rear seat of any vehicle and that they be
properly restrained.
● A child should NEVER sit in the front passenger seat of any vehicle equipped with a passenger-side
front airbag.
● Volvo recommends that ALL occupants (adults and children) shorter than four feet seven inches (140
cm) be seated in the back seat of any vehicle with a front passenger side airbag.

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.
Volvo Concern for Safety
Safety is the cornerstone for Volvo. 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 energy-absorbing impact
zones were designed into Volvo cars long before it was fashionable or required by government
regulation. We will not compromise our commitment to safety. We continue to seek out new safety
features and to refine those already in our cars. You can help. We would appreciate hearing your
suggestions about improving automobile safety. We also want to know if you ever have a safety concern
with your car. Call us in the U. S. at: 800-458-1552 or in Canada at: 800-663-8255.
Occupant safety
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 tips listed below are
suggestions to help you cope with the ever changing traffic environment.
● Never drink and drive.
● If you are taking any medication, consult your physician about its potential effects on your driving
abilities.
● Take a driver-retraining course.
● Have your eyes checked regularly.

Condensation on the inside of the windows
Keeping the insides of the windows clean will help reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the
windows. Use a commercial window cleaning agent to clean the windows.
Ice and snow
Always keep the air intake grille at the base of the windshield free of snow.
Cabin air filter
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one at the recommended intervals. The filter should be replaced
more often when driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The filter cannot be cleaned and therefore
should always be replaced with a new one.
Sensors
The sunlight sensor on the dashboard and passenger compartment temperature sensor in the ECC control
panel should not be covered in any way as this could cause incorrect information to be sent to the ECC
system.
Parking the car in warm weather
If your car has been parked in the sun in warm weather, opening the windows and sun roof (option) for
several minutes before driving will help release the warm air from the passenger compartment. When
the engine is running, close the windows and sun roof and use the recirculation function for several

Recirculation can be used to shut out stale air, exhaust, 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. Recirculation (together with the air conditioning system) cools the
passenger compartment more quickly in warm weather.
If you allow the air in the car to recirculate, there is a risk of icing and fogging, especially in winter. The
timer function minimizes the risk of ice, misting and stale air.
Activate the timer function as follows:
● Press
for more than 3 seconds. The LED flashes for 5 seconds. The air recirculates in the car for
3-12 minutes depending on the outside temperature.
● The timer function is activated each time you press
. To switch off the timer function:
● Press
again for more than 3 seconds. The LED lights for 5 seconds to confirm your selection.
Recirculation is always disconnected when you select
Defroster.
Air distribution
Use the air distribution control positions (marked with dots) between the different symbols to fine-tune
air distribution for maximum comfort.

Radio Data System (RDS, also referred to as RBDS) - HU-803 only
This feature, which may not work in your area, functions only with FM broadcasts. The HU-803 radio in
your car is equipped with an advanced system allowing information from broadcasters to be transmitted
visually, as text, together with the audio signal. This information is then decoded by the radio and made
available for several new and unique features. The RDS or Radio Data System operates in the FM
band only, and the information transmitted is supplied exclusively by participating broadcasters.
Volvo has no control over the accuracy of the data or information. Please refer to the following pages
regarding specific descriptions and operation of these functions.
Coverage by local broadcasters may be limited at this time, but as the technology and benefits grow, you
will find the radio in your car is equipped to take advantage of this system.

Dolby Surround Pro Logic (HU-803 only)
During CD playback, Dolby Surround Pro Logic, together with the speaker in the center of the
dashboard, offers you very clear and realistic sound.
The Dolby unit divides the normal stereo channels from left - right to left - center - right. In addition,
ambient surround sound is produced by the rear speakers. This ambient surround sound mirrors the
resonance of a recording studio.
Most recordings today are made so that the vocalist/soloist is heard from the center foreground while the
orchestra is heard over the entire left-right panorama as well as from behind. This enables the Dolby
Surround Pro Logic system to provide a unique listening experience.

Cassette cleaning
We recommend the use of the Volvo Cleaning Cassette available as a genuine Volvo accessory. Regular
use improves sound quality, cleans vital parts and prevents tape tangle.
Compact disc care
● Before using a new disc for the first time, remove any burrs in the center/outer edge by running the
stem of a pen or similar object around the hole/edge of the disc.
● Use CD standard EN 60908 discs only. Discs not meeting this standard may cause problems with
system (poor sound). CDR discs can cause listening problems due to the quality of the disc or recording
equipment used.
● Keep the discs clean. Wipe them with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth, working from the center outwards.
If necessary, dampen the cloth with a neutral soap solution. Dry thoroughly before using.
● Never use cleaning spray or antistatic liquid. Use only cleaners specifically made for CD's.
● Use discs of the correct size only (3.5" discs should never be used).
● Do not put tape or labels on the disc itself.
● Volvo does not recommend the use of plastic outer rings on the disc.
● Condensation may occur on discs/optical components of the changer in cold winter weather. The disc
can be dried with a clean, lint-free cloth. Optical components in the CD changer may, however, take up
to one hour to dry off.
● Never attempt to play a disc which is damaged in any way.
● When not in use, the discs should be stored in their covers. Avoid storing discs in excessive heat,
direct sunlight or dusty locations.
pg. 83 HomeLink® Universal Transceiver (option on 2.4/2.4T)
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver
HomeLink® is an advanced system that can be programmed to learn the codes of three different remote
controlled-devices (e. g., garage door openers, remote lighting, entry door lock). HomeLink® 's sun

visor-mounted transceiver, powered by your car's electrical system, may then be used in place of your
hand-held remote controls.
NOTE: For your security, the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver is designed to not function if you lock
your car from the outside.
Programming the transceiver
1. The ignition switch must be turned to the "accessory" position (II) before programming the
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver.
2. Begin by erasing all 3 factory default channels. Hold down the two outside buttons (buttons 1 and 3 in
the illustration) on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver for about 20 seconds, until HomeLink® 's
indicator light begins to flash. Then release the buttons.
3. Hold your hand-held transmitter (garage door opener, for example) 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from
the HomeLink® surface, keeping the indicator light in view. For placement questions, contact
HomeLink® toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).
4. Using two hands, push and hold both your hand-held transmitter's button and the transceiver button
you wish to program. The indicator light will flash first slowly, then rapidly. Rapid flashing tells you the
HomeLink® button has been successfully programmed. Release both buttons.
5. If you are programming a rolling code-equipped device (e. g., garage door opener or entry door lock),
refer to "Programming rolling codes" on the next page to complete the programming process.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 to program the other two transceiver buttons.
If, after several attempts, you are unable to successfully train the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver to
learn your hand-held transmitter's signal, contact HomeLink® toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.
HomeLink.com).

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.
●
Do not use the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver with any garage door opener that lacks safety
"stop" and "reverse" features as required by federal safety standards. (This includes any garage door
opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982) A garage door opener that cannot "detect" an
object, signaling the door to "stop" and "reverse" does not meet current federal safety standards.
Using a garage door opener without these features increases the risk of serious injury or death. For
more information on this matter, call toll-free 1-800-355-3515
●
(Internet: www.HomeLink.com ).
NOTE: Canadian residents: During programming, your hand-held transmitter may automatically stop
transmitting. To successfully train HomeLink®, continue to hold the HomeLink® button. At the same
time, repeatedly press and hold your hand-held transmitter's button at two-second intervals until
HomeLink® has learned your transmitter's code. The HomeLink® indicator light will flash first slowly,
and then rapidly to indicate that the button has been successfully programmed.
Determining if your garage door uses a rolling code
Determine, in one of the following ways, if your garage door uses a rolling code system and is
manufactured after 1996:
● Refer to the garage door opener owner's manual for verification.
● If your hand-held transmitter appears to program the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver but the
programmed button does not activate the garage door, your garage door opener may have a rolling code.
● Press the programmed HomeLink® button. If the garage door opener has the rolling code feature, the
HomeLink® indicator light flashes rapidly and then glows steadily after approximately 2 seconds.
To train a rolling code garage door opener,
follow these instructions after programming the desired transceiver button according to "Programming
the transceiver." The help of a second person may make training easier.
1. Locate the training button on the garage door opener motor head unit. The location and color of the
training button may vary. If you encounter difficulty, refer to the garage door opener owner's manual or
call toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).
2. Press the "training" button on the garage door opener motor head unit until the "training" light comes
on.

3. Press and release the programmed HomeLink® button. Press and release the programmed
HomeLink® button a second time to complete the training process.
4. Some garage door openers may require you to do this procedure a third time to complete the training.
5. The programmed button on your HomeLink® Universal Transceiver should now operate your garage
door opener. The original hand-held transmitter can also be used, as desired, to operate the garage door.
The remaining two HomeLink® buttons can be programmed in the same way. In the event of any
problems in programming the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver, call toll-free 1-800-355-3515
(Internet: www.HomeLink.com).
pg. 85 HomeLink® Universal Transceiver (option)
Operating the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver
Once programmed, the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver can be used in place of your hand-held
transmitters.
To operate, the key must be turned to the "accessory" position (II) or the engine must be running. Press
the programmed HomeLink® button to activate the garage door, driveway gate, security lighting, home
security system, etc.
Your original hand-held transmitters may, of course, be used at any time. Erasing programmed buttons
Individual buttons cannot be erased. To erase all three programmed buttons:
1. Turn the ignition key to the "accessory" position (II).
2. Hold down the two outside buttons on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver for about 20 seconds,
until HomeLink® 's indicator light begins to flash.
3. Release both buttons.
The HomeLink® buttons can be reprogrammed using the procedures described on the previous page.
Reprogramming a single HomeLink® button
1. Press and hold the desired HomeLink® button. Do not release the button until step 3 has been
completed.
2. When the indicator light begins to flash slowly (after approximately 20 seconds), position your handheld transmitter 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from the HomeLink® surface.

3. Press and hold the hand-held transmitter button. The HomeLink® indicator light will flash first
slowly, then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, release both buttons.
The previously programmed device has now been erased and the new device can be activated by
pressing the HomeLink® button that has just been programmed. This procedure will not affect any other
programmed HomeLink® buttons.
NOTE:
● Retain the original transmitter( s) for future programming procedures (e. g., if you purchase a new
car).
● For your own security, erase all programmed buttons on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver when
you sell your car.
● Metallic sun protection films should not be used on any windows in a car equipped with HomeLink®
Universal Transceiver. This could interfere with the transceiver's function.

"keyless" entry into the passenger compartment or the trunk. You will be supplied with two coded key
ring transmitters, which will enable you to lock/unlock all doors and the trunk from a distance of 10-15
feet (3-5 meters).
On vehicles equipped with an alarm, the alarm will also be activated/deactivated by this system.
The car can also be locked/unlocked with the key.
As an extra security precaution in certain situations (valet parking, etc.), Volvo recommends that the
transmitter not be included when the keys are given to anyone. The service key can be used instead. If
one of the transmitters is misplaced, contact the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for assistance.

ENGINE OIL
Although some oil consumption occurs during normal engine operation, more oil is consumed when the
engine is new as the internal parts generate higher friction while wearing- in to each other. From the
time the engine is new until the first service is performed, the oil consumption could be higher than
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_08a.htm (1 of 19)12/30/2006 3:55:15 PM
2002 Volvo S60
normal. For this reason, it is especially important to check the oil every time you refuel your car during
this period. See page 174.
Fuel requirements
Octane rating
Volvo engines are designed for optimum performance on unleaded premium gasoline with an AKI
octane rating of 91 or above. AKI (ANTI KNOCK INDEX) is an average of the Research Octane
Number, RON, and the Motor Octane Number, MON. (RON + MON/2). The minimum octane
requirement is AKI 87 (RON 91).
Deposit control gasoline (detergent additives)
Volvo recommends the use of gasoline containing deposit control additives. These additives have shown
to be effective in keeping injectors and intake valves clean. Consistent use of deposit control gasolines
will help ensure good driveability and fuel economy. If you are not sure whether the gasoline contains
deposit control additives, check with the service station operator.
NOTE: 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 labeled "UNLEADED". Only
these pumps have nozzles which fit your car's filler inlet. It is unlawful to dispense leaded fuel into a
vehicle labeled "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 effectiveness of
the emission control system and could result in loss of emission warranty coverage. State and local
vehicle inspection programs will make detection of misfueling easier, possibly resulting in emission test
failure for misfueled vehicles.
NOTE: Some U. S. and Canadian gasolines contain an octane enhancing additive called methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT). If such fuels are used, your Emission Control System
performance may be affected, and the Check Engine Light (malfunction indicator lamp) located on your
instrument panel may light. If this occurs, please return your vehicle to an authorized Volvo retailer 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 seasonal air quality
standards, some areas require the use of "oxygenated" fuel.
Volvo allows the use of the following "oxygenated" fuels; however, the octane ratings listed on this page
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_08a.htm (2 of 19)12/30/2006 3:55:15 PM
2002 Volvo S60
must still be met.
Alcohol - Ethanol: Fuels containing up to 10% ethanol by volume may be used. Ethanol may also be
referred to as Ethyl alcohol, or "Gasohol".
Ethers - MTBE: Fuels containing up to 15% MTBE may be used.
pg. 129 Refueling
Carbon Monoxide - Important Warning
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, colorless, and odorless gas. It is present in all exhaust gases. If you
ever smell exhaust fumes inside the vehicle, make sure the passenger compartment is ventilated, and
immediately return the vehicle to your retailer for correction.
Fuel Formulations
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 car, lead has been strongly linked to certain
forms of cancer.
Many fuels contain benzene as a solvent. Unburned benzene has been strongly linked to certain forms of
cancer. If you live in an area where you must fill your own gas tank, take precautions. These may
include:
standing upwind away from the filler nozzle while refueling
● refueling only at gas stations with vapor recovery systems that fully seal the mouth of the filler neck
during refueling
● wear neoprene gloves while handling a fuel filler nozzle.
●
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 car'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.

Fuel filler door
Press the button on the light switch panel (see illustration on page 40) when the car is at a standstill to
unlock the fuel filler door. Please note that the fuel filler door will remain unlocked until the car is
driven again at a speed of over approximately 5 mph (8km/h). An audible click will be heard when the
fuel filler door relocks.
If you intend to leave your car while it is being refueled, this feature enables you to lock the doors/trunk
while leaving the fuel filler door unlocked.
You can also keep the car locked if you remain inside during refueling. The central locking button does
not lock the fuel filler door.
Be sure the fuel filler door is not obstructed and is completely closed after refueling.
Open the fuel filler cap slowly during hot weather.
NOTE: During a transitional period, a small number of service stations may still have fuel nozzles that
are not compatible with the fuel filler neck on cars equipped with the evaporative control system.
Refueling
The fuel tank is designed to hold approximately 18.5 US gals (70 liters) or 21.1 US gals (80 liters) on
turbo models, with sufficient volume left over to accommodate possible expansion of the fuel in hot
weather. Be aware that the "usable" tank capacity will be somewhat less than the specified maximum.
When the fuel level is low, such factors as ambient temperature, the fuel's "Reid vapor pressure"
characteristics, and terrain can affect the fuel pump's ability to supply the engine with an adequate
supply of fuel. Therefore, it is advisable to refuel as soon as possible when the needle nears the red zone,
or when the fuel warning light comes on.
CAUTION:
Do not refuel with the engine running *. Turn the ignition off or to position I. If the ignition is on, an
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_08a.htm (4 of 19)12/30/2006 3:55:15 PM
2002 Volvo S60
incorrect reading could occur in the fuel gauge After refueling, close the fuel filler cap by turning it
clockwise until it clicks into place*.
Allow for fuel expansion by not overfilling the tank. Overfilling could also cause damage to the
emission control systems. Avoid spilling gasoline during refueling. In addition to causing damage to the
environment, gasolines containing alcohol can cause damage to painted surfaces, which may not be
covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
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.
* If the fuel filler cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the Check
Engine Light (malfunction indicator lamp) may indicate a fault. However, your vehicle's performance
will not be affected. Use only Volvo original or approved fuel filler caps.
pg. 131 Starting the car
Starting the engine
1. Fasten the seat belt.
WARNING!
Before starting, check that the seat, steering wheel and mirrors are adjusted properly. Make sure the
brake pedal can be depressed completely. Adjust the seat if necessary. See pages 102, 104.
2. Apply the parking brake (hand brake) if not already set. The gear selector (automatic transmission) is
locked in the (P) ark position (SHIFTLOCK). Manual transmission: the clutch must be fully depressed.
3. Without touching the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition key* to the starting position. Allow the
starter to operate for up to 10 seconds. Release the key as soon as the engine starts. If the engine fails to
start, repeat this step.
For cold starts at altitudes above 6000 ft (1800 meters), depress the accelerator pedal halfway and turn
the key to the starting position. Release the pedal slowly when the engine starts.
4. To release the gear selector from the (P) ark position, the engine must be running (or the ignition key
must be in position II) and the brake pedal must be depressed.

5. Select the desired gear. The gear engages after a very slight delay which is especially noticeable when
selecting R.
NOTE: Your car is equipped with a KEYLOCK system (automatic transmission). When the engine is
switched off, the gear selector must be in the (P) ark position before the key can be removed from the
ignition switch.
When starting in cold weather, the transmission may shift up at slightly higher engine speeds than
normal until the automatic transmission fluid reaches normal operating temperature.
CAUTION:
Automatic transmission
The engine should be idling when you move the gear selector. Never accelerate until after you feel the
transmission engage! Accelerating immediately after selecting a gear will cause harsh engagement and
premature transmission wear.
Selecting P or N when idling at a standstill for prolonged periods of time will help prevent overheating
of the automatic transmission fluid.
WARNING!
Always place the gear selector in Park and apply the parking brake before leaving the vehicle. Never
leave the car unattended with the engine running.
Always open garage doors fully before starting the engine inside a garage to ensure adequate
ventilation. The exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, which is invisible and odorless but very
poisonous
Do not race a cold engine immediately after starting. Oil flow may not reach some lubrication points fast
enough to prevent engine damage.
* If two of the keys to your car are close together, e. g., on the same key ring, when you try to start the
car, this could cause interference in the immobilizer system and result in the car not starting. If this
should occur, remove one of the keys from the key ring before trying to start the car again.

pg. 133 General information
Economical driving conserves natural resources
Better driving economy may be obtained by thinking ahead, avoiding rapid starts and stops and
adjusting the speed of your vehicle to immediate traffic conditions. Observe the following rules:
● Bring the engine to normal operating temperature as soon as possible by driving with a light foot on
the accelerator pedal for the first few minutes of operation. A cold engine uses more fuel and is subject
to increased wear.
● Whenever possible, avoid using the car for driving short distances. This does not allow the engine to
reach normal operating temperature.
● Drive carefully and avoid rapid acceleration and hard braking.
● Do not exceed posted speed limits.
● Avoid carrying unnecessary items (extra load) in the car.
● Maintain correct tire pressure. Check tire pressure regularly (when tires are cold).
● Remove snow tires when threat of snow or ice has ended.
● Note that roof racks, ski racks, etc, increase air resistance and also fuel consumption.
● Avoid using automatic transmission kickdown feature unless necessary.
● However, at higher driving speeds, fuel consumption will be lower with the air conditioning on and
the windows closed than with the air conditioning off and the windows open.
● Using the onboard trip computer's fuel consumption modes can help you learn how to drive more
economically.
Other factors that decrease gas mileage are:
● Worn or dirty spark plugs
● Incorrect spark plug gap
● Dirty air cleaner
● Dirty engine oil and clogged oil filter
● Dragging brakes
● Incorrect front end alignment Some of the above mentioned items and others are checked at the
standard Maintenance Service intervals.
NOTE: Vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions should use (D) rive as often as possible and
avoid using "kickdown" to help improve fuel economy.

2002 Volvo S60
WARNING!
Driving with the trunk open: Driving with the trunk open could lead to poisonous exhaust gases
entering the passenger compartment. If the trunk must be kept open for any reason, proceed as follows
- Close the windows
- Set the ventilation system control to air flow to floor, windshield and side windows and blower
control to its highest setting.
CAUTION: Drive slowly and carefully if going through standing water (i. e. flooded roadways, etc.).
Damage to the engine could result if excess water is drawn in through the air intake system. Never drive
the vehicle in water deeper than 1 foot (300 mm).
Weight distribution affects handling
At the specified curb weight your car 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.
pg. 134 General information
The heavier the load in the trunk (max. 220 lbs, 100 kg), 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 "Tire pressure" section.
Loads should be distributed so that capacity weight or maximum permissible axle loads are not
exceeded.

Automatic transmission - adaptive system
The automatic transmission is controlled by an adaptive control system that constantly monitors the way
in which the transmission functions. It senses and adapts each gear shift for optimal performance. The
system also monitors your particular driving style and adapts gear shifting accordingly.
Cold starts
When driving before the engine has reached its normal operating temperature, the transmission will shift
up at a slightly higher engine speeds to heat the three-way catalytic converter as quickly as possible.
pg. 138 Geartronic (option)
P Park
Use this position when starting the engine or parking the car.
Never use P while the car is in motion.
The parking brake should also be set whenever the car is parked.
The gear selector is mechanically locked in the P position (SHIFTLOCK). To release the gear
selector from this position, the engine must be running (or the ignition key must be in position II) and
the brake pedal must be depressed.
WARNING!
Never leave the car unattended when the engine is running. If, by mistake, the gear selector is moved
from P, the car may start moving.

To return to the (D) rive position from MAN, move the gear selector to the right.
While driving
If you select the (MAN) ual position while driving, the gear that was being used in the (D) rive position
will also initially be selected in (MAN) ual position.
● Move the gear selector forward (toward "+") to shift to a higher gear or rearward (toward "-") to shift
to a lower gear.
● If you hold the gear selector toward "-", the transmission will downshift, one gear at a time, and will
utilize the braking power of the engine. If the current speed is too high for using a lower gear, the
downshift will not occur until the speed has decreased enough to allow the lower gear to be used.
● If you slow down to a very low speed, the transmission will automatically shift down.
● When starting in the (MAN) ual position, 3rd gear is the highest gear that may be selected.
NOTE: Kickdown does not function when the transmission is in the manual shift (Geartronic) mode.
Kickdown
Automatic shift to a lower gear (kickdown) is achieved by depressing the accelerator pedal fully and
briskly. An upshift will occur when approaching the top speed for a particular gear or by releasing the

pg. 140 All Wheel Drive (option)
All Wheel Drive (AWD) - general information
Your Volvo can be equipped with permanent All Wheel Drive, which means that power is distributed
automatically between the front and rear wheels. Under normal driving conditions, most engine's power
is directed to the front wheels. However, if there is any tendency for the front wheels to spin, an
electronically controlled coupling distributes power to the wheels that have the best traction.
Tire dimensions
Volvo recommends that you always drive on tires of the same brand, size, construction (radial), tread
pattern, load-, speed-, traction-, temperature-, and treadwear rating. never drive on mixed tires, except
for brief periods when the temporary spare tire is in use.
Always use properly inflated tires of correct dimensions. Tire size and inflation pressures are shown on
the tire pressure label located inside the fuel filler door.
Tire Rotation
Volvo recommends rotating the tires every 7,500 miles (12,000 km). Tires should be rotated front-toback/back-to-front only. Tires must maintain the same direction of rotation throughout their lifetime, and
should never be rotated from one side of the vehicle to the other.
Temporary Spare
The temporary spare tire is for temporary, low-speed, short-distance use only. Replace it with a full-size
tire as soon as possible, in accordance with "Tire Rotation" above. Do not drive on the temporary spare
at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) or for distances greater that
pg. 141 Brake system
BRAKE Brake circuit malfunction
If one of the brake circuits were to malfunction, the red warning light would come on, the pedal travel
would increase slightly, the pedal would feel softer, and extra pressure would be required for normal
braking. If the light comes on while driving or braking, stop immediately and check the brake fluid level
in the reservoir.
WARNING!
If the fluid level is below the MIN mark in the reservoir or if a "Brake failure - Service urgent"
message is displayed in the text window: DO NOT DRIVE. Have the car towed to a Volvo retailer
and have the brake system inspected.
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_08a.htm (17 of 19)12/30/2006 3:55:15 PM
2002 Volvo S60
NOTE: When the car is at a standstill and the engine is idling, e. g. at a traffic light and the brake pedal
is depressed, the pedal may go down slightly. This is a normal function of the power-assisted brake
system.
If the brake power-assist does not function
The power assist to the brakes functions only when the engine is running. When the car is moving
without the engine running, the brake pedal pressure required to stop the car is increased by 3-4 times
and the brake pedal feels stiff.
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.
Severe strain on the brake system
The brakes will be subject to severe strain when driving in mountains or hilly areas or towing. Vehicle
speed is usually slower, which means that the cooling of the brakes is less efficient than when driving on
level roads. To reduce the strain on the brakes, it is advisable not to use the brakes excessively. Instead,
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.
pg. 142 Brake system
Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
If the warning lamp lights up there is a malfunction of the ABS system (the standard braking system will
however function) and the vehicle should be driven cautiously to a Volvo retailer for inspection. 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, which could lead to a skid.
The system performs a self-diagnostic test when the engine is started and when the vehicle first
reaches a speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a
sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.
To obtain optimal effect from the ABS system, constant pressure should be kept on the brake pedal,
keep constant pressure on the brake pedal. Do not pump the brake pedal.

2002 Volvo S60
The switching of the ABS modulator will be audible and the brake pedal will pulsate during braking.
Please be aware that ABS does not increase the absolute braking potential of the vehicle. While control
will be enhanced, ABS will not shorten stopping distances on slippery surfaces.
ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution)
EBD is an integrated part of the ABS system. EBD regulates the hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes to
help provide optimal braking capacity.
If the BRAKE and ABS warning lights come on at the same time, this could indicate a fault in the brake
system.
Stop the car in a suitable place and switch off the engine.
● Restart the engine.
● If both warning lights go off, no further action is required.
● If both lights are still on after the engine has been restarted, switch off the engine again and check the
brake fluid level (see page 172 for the location of the brake fluid reservoir).
● If the brake fluid level is above the MIN mark, drive carefully to an authorized Volvo retailer and
have the brake system inspected.
●
WARNING!
If the fluid level is below the MIN mark in the reservoir or if a "Brake failure - Service urgent"
message is displayed in the text window: DO NOT DRIVE. Have the car towed to a Volvo retailer
and have the brake system inspected.

pg. 143 Stability system
Stability and Traction Control (STC) - Anti-spin system - T5 (option on 2.4/2.4T)
The STC system is designed to help reduce wheel spin by limiting power to the drive wheels if they
begin to lose traction. At speeds over 25 mph (40 km/h), the STC system monitors and compares all four
wheels. If one of the drive (front) wheels shows any tendency to slip, such as when driving on slippery
roads, the difference in speed is immediately detected. This triggers a signal to the engine management
system, which will reduce engine torque (by reducing fuel) until the differential is corrected. This torque
reduction is handled in stages, and reaction time is extremely fast. The system can be switched on or off
by pressing the button on the center console for at least half a second (see page 37). The text window
in the instrument panel will be ON when you
will briefly display "STC off" and the indicator light
have switched the system off. The STC system comes on each time you start your car.

may be reduced at this time. This is normal as power is momentarily reduced to help keep the drive
wheels from losing traction and spinning.
If the STC system has been switched on using the button in the center console (the indicator light will

Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) - option
The DSTC system performs all of the functions of the STC system. In addition, DSTC also applies the
brakes to one or more of the wheels to help maintain stability if a wheel begins to lose traction. The
system functions at speeds above 12 mph (20 km/h) and works on all four wheels, on any road surface.
When DSTC is active, brake pressure is regulated automatically and the brake pedal will move slightly.
If you press the brake pedal while DSTC is automatically regulating brake pressure, the pedal will feel
stiffer than normal. A pulsating sound will be audible at this time, which is quite normal.
Switching off DSTC
DSTC comes on each time you start your car, and should be left on at all times. If for any reason the
steering wheel position or the front wheels are not properly aligned, DSTC should be switched off since
the system may receive incorrect signals.
When the LED in the button is on, this indicates that DSTC is switched on (the light will also come on if
a fault has been detected in the system). To avoid inadvertently switching the system off, the button
must be pressed for at least half a second before DSTC is deactivated.
The text window will briefly display "DSTC off" and the symbol
will come on to indicate that DSTC
has been switched off. The system is automatically switched back on when the engine is restarted.

automatically switch on again when the brakes have cooled.
● If the system has been switched off due to a fault. An authorized Volvo retailer should check the
system.
Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA)
The EBA function is an integrated part of the DSTC system. 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
you depress the brake pedal.

NOTE:
● 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 car has been parked for some time, the brake pedal may sink more than usual when the
engine is started. This is normal and the pedal will return to its usual position when it is released.

pg. 148 Towing a trailer
Towing a trailer
Volvo recommends the use of Volvo trailer hitches that are specially designed for the car.
● Maximum trailer weight recommended by Volvo is: Trailers without brakes: 1100 lbs (500 kg)
Trailers with brakes: 2" (50 mm) ball - 3300 lbs (1500 kg), 1 7/8" (47 mm) ball - 3300 lbs (1500 kg).
Observe the legal requirements of the state/province in which the vehicles are registered.
● All Volvo models are equipped with energy-absorbing shock-mounted bumpers. Trailer hitch
installation should not interfere with the proper operation of this bumper system.
Trailer towing does not normally present any particular problems, but take into consideration:
● Increase tire pressure to recommended full. See section "Wheels and tires."
● When your car is new, avoid towing heavy trailers during the first 620 miles (1000 km).
● Recommended hitch tongue load is: Trailer weights below 2,650 lbs (1,200 kg) - 110 lbs (50 kg)
Trailer weights above 2,650 lbs (1,200 kg) - 165 lbs (75 kg)
● Maximum speed when towing a trailer: 50 mph (80 km/h).
● Engine and transmission are subject to increased loads. Therefore, engine coolant temperature should
be closely watched when driving in hot climates or hilly terrain. Use a lower gear and turn off the air
conditioner if the temperature gauge needle enters the red range.
● If the automatic transmission begins to overheat, a message will be displayed in the text window.
● Avoid overload and other abusive operation.
● Hauling a trailer affects handling, durability, and economy.
● It is necessary to balance trailer brakes with the towing vehicle brakes to provide a safe stop (check
and observe state/local regulations).
● Do not connect the trailer's brake system directly to the vehicle's brake system.

More frequent vehicle maintenance is required.
● Remove the ball and drawbar assembly when the hitch is not being used.
● Volvo recommends the use of synthetic engine oil when towing a trailer over long distances or in
mountainous areas.
●
WARNING!
Bumper-attached trailer hitches must not be used on Volvos, nor should safety chains be attached to
the bumper.
Trailer hitches attaching to the vehicle rear axle must not be used.
Never connect a trailer's hydraulic brake system directly to the vehicle brake system, nor a trailer's
lighting system directly to the vehicle lighting system. Consult your nearest authorized Volvo retailer
for correct installation.
When towing a trailer, the trailer's safety wire must be correctly fastened to the hole or hook provided
in the trailer hitch on the car. The safety wire should never be fastened to or wound around the
drawbar ball.
pg. 149 Towing a trailer
NOTE! When parking the car with a trailer on a hill, apply the parking brake before putting the gear
selector in (P) ark (first/reverse gear on manual transmissions). When starting on a hill, put the gear
selector in (D) rive before releasing the parking brake.
If you use the manual (Geartronic) shift positions while towing a trailer, make sure the gear you select
does not put too much strain on the engine (using too high a gear). The drawbar assembly/trailer hitch
may be rated for trailers heavier than the car is designed to tow. Please adhere to Volvo's recommended
trailer weights.
Leveling
If you car is equipped with automatic leveling, the rear suspension always retains the correct ride height
regardless of the load. When the car is stationary, the rear suspension sinks, which is normal.

pg. 153 Cold weather precautions
Cold weather precautions
If you wish to check your car before the approach of cold weather, the following advice is worth noting:
● Make sure that the engine coolant contains 50 percent antifreeze. Any other mixture will reduce
freeze protection. This gives protection against freezing down to -31° F (- 35° C). See section "Coolant".
The use of "recycled" antifreeze is not approved by Volvo. Different types of antifreeze must not
be mixed.
● Volvo recommends using only genuine Volvo antifreeze in your car's radiator. Your Volvo retailer
stocks plenty of Volvo engine coolant to protect your car during cold weather.
● Try to keep the fuel tank well filled - this prevents the formation of condensation in the tank. In
addition, in extremely cold weather conditions it is worthwhile to add fuel line de-icer before refueling.
● The viscosity of the engine oil is important. Oil with low viscosity (thinner oil) improves coldweather 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 section "Engine oil" for more information.
● The load placed on the battery is greater during the winter since the windshield wipers, lighting, etc.
are used more often. Moreover, the capacity of the battery decreases as the temperature drops. In very
cold weather, a poorly charged battery can freeze and be damaged. It is therefore advisable to check the
state of charge more frequently and spray an anti- rust oil on the battery posts.
● Volvo recommends the use of snow tires on all four wheels for winter driving - see section "Wheels
and tires."
● To prevent the washer fluid reservoir from freezing, add washer solvents containing antifreeze (see
page 172 for the location of the washer fluid reservoir). This is important since dirt is often splashed on
the windshield during winter driving, requiring the frequent use of the washers and wipers. Volvo
Washer Solvent should be diluted as follows: Down to 14° F (- 10° C): 1 part washer solvent and 4 parts

pg. 154 Before a long distance trip
Before a long distance trip
It is always worthwhile to have your car checked at a Volvo retailer 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.
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 engine oil, coolant levels, and for any fluid leakage.
● Check transmission oil level*.
● Check condition of drive belts.
● Check state of the battery's charge.
● Examine tires carefully (the spare tire as well), and replace those that are worn. Check tire pressures.
● The brakes, front wheel alignment, and steering gear should be checked by your Volvo retailer only.
● Check all lights, including high beams.
● Reflective warning triangles are legal requirement in some countries.
● Have a word with your Volvo retailer if you intend to drive in countries where it may be difficult to
obtain the correct fuel.
● Consider your destination. If you will be driving through an area where snow or ice are likely to
occur, consider snow tires.
* To prevent injury from contact with hot surfaces, do not inspect your car's transmission fluid yourself.
Have your car's transmission fluid level inspected by a qualified Volvo service technician.

General information about wheels and tires
Your vehicle is equipped with tires according to the tire information label on the inside of the fuel filler
door.
All tires have a dimension designation.
Example of designation: 215/55R16.
215 section width (mm)
55 relationship between section
height and width
R radial tire
16 wheel rim diameter (")
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.
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_09.htm (1 of 10)12/30/2006 3:55:18 PM
2002 Volvo S60
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.
NOTE: When storing wheel/tire assemblies (e. g. winter tires and wheels), either stand the assemblies
upright, or suspend them off the ground. Laying wheel/tire assemblies on their sides for prolonged
periods can cause wheel and/or tire damage.
New tires
Remember that tires are perishable goods. This tire was manufactured week 15 in 1998! (158). As of
2000, manufacturing year and week will be indicated with 4 digits (e. g. 0015 means that the tire is
manufactured year 2000, week 15).
Improving tire economy:
Maintain correct tire pressure. See the tire pressure label on the inside of the fuel filler door.
● Drive smoothly: avoid fast starts, hard braking and tire screeching.
● Tire wear increases with speed.
● Correct front wheel alignment is very important.
● Unbalanced wheels impair tire economy and driving comfort.
● If tires are rotated, they must be kept on the same side of the car so that they revolve in the same
direction as before rotation.
● Hitting curbs or potholes can damage the tires and/or wheels permanently.
●
Flat spots
All tires become warm during use. After cooling, when the vehicle is parked, the tires have a tendency to
distort slightly, forming flat spots. These flat spots can cause vibrations similar to the vibrations caused
by unbalanced wheels. They do, however, disappear when the tire warms up. The degree to which flat
spots form depends on the type of cord used in the tire. In cold weather, it takes longer for the tire to
warm up and consequently longer for the flat spot to disappear.
CAUTION: The car must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other
than the one that came with the car. The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your car's
transmission.

pg. 157 General information
Snow chains
Snow chains can be used on your Volvo with the following restrictions:
● Snow chains should be installed on front wheels only. Use only Volvo approved snow chains.
● Special snow chains must be mounted on 195/65 R15. For tires of other dimensions, consult your
Volvo retailer.
● If accessory, aftermarket or "custom" tires and wheels are installed and are of a size different than the
original tires and wheels, chains in some cases CANNOT be used. Sufficient clearances between chains
and brakes, suspension and body components must be maintained.
● Some strap-on type chains will interfere with brake components and therefore CANNOT be used.
NOTE: Consult your Volvo retailer for additional snow chain information
CAUTION:
Check local regulations regarding the use of snow chains before installing
Always follow the chain manufacturer's installation instructions carefully. Install chains as tightly as
possible and retighten periodically.
Never exceed the chain manufacturer's specified maximum speed limit. (Under no circumstances should
you exceed 31 mph (50 km/h)
Avoid bumps, holes or sharp turns when driving with snow chains.
The handling of the vehicle can be adversely affected when driving with chains. Avoid fast or sharp
turns as well as locked wheel braking.
Snow tires, studded tires *
Tires for winter use:
Owners who live in or regularly commute through areas with sustained periods of snow or icy driving
conditions are strongly advised to fit suitable winter tires to help retain the highest degree of traction.
It is important to install winter tires on all four wheels to help retain traction during cornering, braking,
and accelerating. Failure to do so could reduce traction to an unsafe level or adversely affect handling.
Do not mix tires of different design as this could also negatively affect overall tire road grip.
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_09.htm (3 of 10)12/30/2006 3:55:18 PM
2002 Volvo S60
Volvo recommends195/65 R15 (205/55R16 on turbo models) winter tires on all four wheels.
Winter tires wear more quickly on dry roads in warm weather. They should be removed when the winter
driving season has ended.
Studded tires should be run-in 300-600 miles (500-1000 km) during which the car should be driven as
smoothly as possible to give the studs the opportunity to seat properly in the tires. The tires should have
the same rotational direction throughout their entire lifetime. In other words, if you wish to rotate the
wheels, make sure that the same wheels are always on the same side of the car.
NOTE: Please consult state or provincial regulations restricting the use of studded winter tires before
installing such tires.
* Where permitted
pg. 158 Tire pressure
Checking and correcting tire pressure
The tire pressure label is located on the inside of the fuel filler door.
● Check the tire pressure regularly.
● The tire pressure should be corrected only when the tires are cold.
● With warm tires, correct only when the pressure is too low. The tire temperature rises after driving
just a few miles.
Vehicle loading The tires on your Volvo will perform to specifications at all normal loads when inflated
as recommended on the tire information label located on the inside of the fuel filler door. This label lists
both tire and vehicle design limits. Do not load your car beyond the load limits indicated.

2002 Volvo S60
WARNING!
Improperly inflated tires will reduce tire life, adversely affect vehicle handling and can possibly lead
to failure resulting in loss of vehicle control without prior warning.
Temporary Spare (certain models)
The spare tire in your car is called a "Temporary Spare". It has the following designation: T125/80 R17.
Recommended tire pressure (see decal on Fuel filler door) should be maintained irrespective of which
position on the car the Temporary Spare tire is used on. In the event of damage to this tire, a new one
can be purchased from your Volvo retailer.
WARNING!
Current legislation prohibits the use of the "Temporary Spare" tire other than as a temporary
replacement for a punctured tire. It must be replaced as soon as possible by a standard tire. Road
holding and handling may be affected with the "Temporary Spare" in use. Do not exceed 50 mph (80
km/h). Do not drive farther than 50 miles (80 km) on a temporary spare tire.
CAUTION:
The car must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other than the one
that came with the car. The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your car's transmission.
NOTE: Certain models may be equipped with a full-size spare tire. When used, it should be inflated to
the same pressure as the tire it is replacing.
pg. 159 Tread wear indicators
Tires have tread
wear indicators The tires have wear indicator strips running across or parallel to the tread.
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_09.htm (5 of 10)12/30/2006 3:55:18 PM
2002 Volvo S60
When approx. 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 have a very poor grip in rain or snow.
When replacing worn tires, it is recommended that the tire be identical in type (radial) and size as the
one being replaced. Using a tire of the same make (manufacturer) will prevent alteration of the driving
characteristics of the vehicle.
pg. 160 Changing wheels
Changing wheels
The spare wheel is located under the carpet on the trunk floor. The jack and crank are secured in the
wheel recess.
There are two jack attachment points on each side of the car (see illustration on next page). To change a
wheel:
● Engage the parking brake.
● Put the gear selector in (P) ark (automatic transmission) or reverse (manual transmission).

2002 Volvo S60
Remove the wheel cap (where applicable) using the lug wrench in the tool kit.
● With the car still on the ground, use the lug wrench to loosen the wheel bolts 1/2 - 1 turn. Turn the
bolts counterclockwise to loosen.
●
CAUTION:
The car must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other than the one
that came with the car. The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your car's transmission.
Correct tightening torque on wheel bolts must be observed. The wheel bolts should never be greased or
lubricated. The extended, chromed wheel bolts must not be used with steel rims, as they make it
impossible to fit the hub caps.
pg. 161 Changing wheels
Position the jack correctly on the bar in the attachment (see illustration above) and crank while
simultaneously guiding the base of the jack to the ground. The base of the jack must be flat on a level,

firm, non-slippery surface. Before raising the car, check that the jack is still correctly positioned in the
attachment.
● Raise the vehicle until the wheel to be changed is lifted off the ground.
● Unscrew the wheel bolts completely and carefully remove the wheel so as not to damage the threads
on the studs. NOTE: To avoid excessive wear and the necessity of rebalancing, mark and reinstall
wheels in the same location and position as before removal. To lessen the chance of imbalance, each
wheel hub is equipped with a guide stud to ensure that a removed wheel can be reinstalled in its original
position (as when changing over to winter tires/wheels).
Installing the wheel
● Clean the contact surfaces on the wheel and hub.
● Lift the wheel and place it on the hub.
● Install the wheel bolts and tighten hand-tight. Using the lug wrench, tighten crosswise until all bolts
are snug.
● Lower the vehicle to the ground and alternately tighten the bolts crosswise to 102 ft. lbs. (140 Nm).
● Install the wheel cap (where applicable).
WARNING!
The jack must correctly engage the bar in the jack attachment. The car's weight must not rest on the
jack attachment. See illustration "Attaching the jack" to the left.
Be sure the jack is on a firm, level, non-slippery surface.
Never allow any part of your body to be extended under a car supported by a jack. Use the jack
intended for the car when replacing a wheel. For any other job, use stands to support the side of the
car being worked on.
Apply the parking brake and put the gear selector in the (P) ark position (or reverse on manual

transmissions).
Block the wheels standing on the ground, use rigid wooden blocks or large stones. The jack should be
kept well-greased.
pg. 162 Uniform Tire Quality Grading
Uniform Tire Quality Grading
ALL PASSENGER CAR TIRES MUST CONFORM TO FEDERAL SAFETY 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:
Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A
TREADWEAR
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, service practices and differences in road
characteristics and climate.
TRACTION
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C, as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have
poor traction performance..
WARNING!
The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on braking (straight-ahead) traction tests and is not a
measure of cornering (turning) traction.
TEMPERATURE
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 car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Safety
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_09.htm (9 of 10)12/30/2006 3:55:18 PM
2002 Volvo S60
Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel
than the minimum required by law.
WARNING!
The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.
Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause
heat buildup and possible tire failure.

Washing and cleaning the car
The car should be washed at regular intervals since dirt, dust, insects and tar spots adhere to the paint
and may cause damage. It is particularly important to wash the car frequently in the wintertime to
prevent corrosion, when salt has been used on the roads.
● When washing the car, do not expose it to direct sunlight. Use lukewarm water to soften the dirt
before you wash with a sponge, and plenty of water, to avoid scratching.
● Bird droppings: Remove from paintwork as soon as possible. Otherwise the finish may be
permanently damaged.
● A detergent can be used to facilitate the softening of dirt and oil.
● A water-soluble grease solvent may be used in cases of sticky dirt. However, use a wash place
equipped with a drainage separator.
● Dry the car with a clean chamois and remember to clean the drain holes in the doors and rocker
panels.
● Tar spots can be removed with kerosene or tar remover after the car has been washed.
● A stiff-bristle brush and lukewarm soapy water can be used to clean the wiper blades. Frequent
cleaning improves visibility considerably.
● Wash off the dirt from the underside (wheel housings, fenders, etc.).
● In areas of high industrial fallout, more frequent washing is recommended.
●
CAUTION:
During high pressure washing, the spray mouthpiece must never be closer to the vehicle than 13" (30
cm). Do not spray into the locks.
When washing or steam cleaning the engine, avoid spraying water or steam directly on the electrical
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_10.htm (1 of 5)12/30/2006 3:55:19 PM

components or toward the rear side of the engine.
After cleaning the engine, the spark plug wells should be inspected for water and blown dry if
necessary.
●
Suitable detergents: Special car washing detergents should be used. A suitable mixture is about 2.5 fl.
oz. (8.5 cl) of detergent to 2.6 US gal. (10 liters) of warm water. After washing with a detergent the car
should be well rinsed with clean water.
Bumpers: Wash the bumpers with the same cleaning agent used on the rest of the car. Never clean the
bumpers with gasoline or paint thinner. Difficult spots can be removed with denatured alcohol. To avoid
scratches, do not dry the bumpers with paper.
NOTE: When washing the car, remember to remove dirt from the drain holes in the doors and sills.
Automatic car wash
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick way of washing the car. Bear in mind, however, that an
automatic car wash can never replace a proper handwashing. During the first months of the car's life while the paint is still curing - we recommend that you handwash the car.
WARNING!
When the car is driven immediately after being washed, apply the brakes several times in order to
remove any moisture from the brake linings. Engine cleaning agents should not be used when the
engine is warm. This constitutes a fire risk.
Automatic washing - simple and quick
● We do NOT recommend washing your car in an automatic wash during the first six months (because
the paint will not have hardened sufficiently).
● An automatic wash is a simple and quick way to clean your car, but it is worth remembering that it
may not be as
pg. 165 Washing and cleaning the car
thorough as when you yourself go over the car with sponge and water. Keeping the underbody clean is
most important, especially in the winter. Some automatic washers do not have facilities for washing the
underbody.
● Before driving into an automatic car wash, make sure that side view mirrors, auxiliary lamps, etc, are
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_10.htm (2 of 5)12/30/2006 3:55:19 PM
2002 Volvo S60
secure, and that any antenna( s) are retracted or removed. Otherwise there is risk of the machine
dislodging them.
Polishing and Waxing
● Normally, polishing is not required during the first year after delivery, however, waxing may be
beneficial.
● Before applying polish or wax the car must be washed and dried. Tar spots can be removed with
kerosene or tar remover. Difficult spots may require a fine rubbing compound.
● After polishing use liquid or paste wax.
● Several commercially available products contain both polish and wax.
● Waxing alone does not substitute for polishing a dull surface.
● A wide range of polymer-based car waxes can be purchased today. These waxes are easy to use and
produce a long-lasting, high-gloss finish that protects the bodywork against oxidation, road dirt and
fading.
● Do not polish or wax your car in direct sunlight (the surface of the car should not be warmer than
113° F (45° C).
Cleaning the upholstery
● The fabric can be cleaned with soapy water or a detergent. For more difficult spots caused by oil, ice
cream, shoe polish, grease, etc., use a clothing/fabric stain remover.
● The plastic in the upholstery can be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild soap solution.
● Leather upholstery/suede-like upholstery (alcanteraª) can be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild soap
solution. For more difficult spots, Volvo offers a leather care kit.
● Under no circumstances should gasoline, naphtha or similar cleaning agents be used on the plastic or
the leather since these can cause damage.
Cleaning the seat belts
Clean only with lukewarm water and a mild soap solution.
Cleaning floor mats
The floor mats should be vacuumed or brushed clean regularly, especially during winter when they
should be taken out for drying. Spots on textile mats can be removed with a mild detergent.
Bear in mind
● Take extra care when removing stains such as ink or lipstick since the coloring can spread.
● Use solvents sparingly. Too much solvent can damage the seat padding.
● Start from the outside of the stain and work toward the center.

Paint damage requires immediate attention to avoid rusting. Make it a habit to check the finish regularly
- when washing the car for instance. Touch-up if necessary.
Paint repairs require special equipment and skill. Contact your Volvo retailer for any extensive damage.
Minor scratches can be repaired by using Volvo touch-up paint.
NOTE: When ordering touch-up paint from your Volvo retailer, use the paint code indicated on the
model plate. The plate is located in the engine compartment.
Color code
Make sure you have the right color. The color code number is on the data plate in the engine
compartment.
Minor stone chips and scratches
Material:
● Primer - can
● Paint - touch-up pen
● Brush
● Masking tape
● If the stone chip has not gone down to the bare metal and an undamaged color coat remains, you can
add paint immediately after removing dirt.
NOTE: When touching up the car, it should be clean and dry. The surface temperature should be above
60° F (15° C).
Minor scratches on the surface
If the stone chip has not penetrated down to the metal and an undamaged layer of paint remains, the
touch-up paint can be applied as soon as the spot has been cleaned.
Deep scratches
1. Place a strip of masking tape over the damaged surface. Pull the tape off so that any loose flakes of
paint adhere to it.
2. Thoroughly mix the primer and apply it with a small brush.
When the primer surface is dry, the paint can be applied using a brush. Mix the paint thoroughly; apply

unit. Replace more frequently if contaminated fuel is introduced into the tank, or if there is reason to
suspect that this has occurred.
Fuel filler cap, tank and lines and connections
The ability of the fuel system to contain hydrocarbons is dependent upon a leak-free system. Inspect fuel
lines every 30,000 miles (48,000 km). Check for proper sealing of the fuel filler cap which contains "O"
ring type seals.
NOTE: If the fuel filler cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the
Check Engine light (Malfunction Indicator) may indicate a fault. However, your vehicle's performance
will not be affected. Use only Volvo original or approved fuel filler caps.
Timing belt
For proper functioning of the vehicle and its emission control systems, the timing belt must be replaced
every 105,000 miles (168,000 km). Engine damage will occur if the belt fails. .
PCV system
(on turbocharged models)
The nipple in the intake manifold and the filter at the end of the PCV hose in the air cleaner should be
inspected at 105,000 miles (168,000 km) and thereafter, at 150,000 mile (240,000 km) intervals.
Spark plugs
The spark plugs should be replaced every 60,000 miles (96,000 km) under normal driving conditions.
City driving or fast highway driving may necessitate replacement sooner.
Under normal driving conditions, spark plugs require no maintenance between replacement intervals.
When installing new plugs, be sure to use the right type and to tighten them correctly. When changing
the plugs, clean the terminals and rubber seals. Also check that the suppressor connectors are in good
condition. Cracked or damaged connectors should be replaced.

Note the following before you begin working on your car:
Battery
● Ensure that the battery cables are correctly connected and tightened.
● Never disconnect the battery when the engine is running (e. g. when replacing the battery).
● Never use a fast charger to charge the battery. The battery cables should be disconnected when
recharging.
● The battery contains acid that is both corrosive and poisonous. It is important that the battery is
handled in an environmentally friendly way. Let your Volvo dealer assist you.
Hoisting the car
If a garage jack is used to lift the car, the two jack attachments points should be used. They are specially
reinforced to bear the weight of the car. A garage jack can also be placed under the front of the engine
support frame. Take care not to damage the splash guard under the engine. Ensure that the jack is
positioned so that the car cannot slide off it. Always use axle stands or similar structures.
If a two-post hoist is used to lift the car, the front and rear lift arm pads should be centered under the
reinforced lift plates on the inboard edge of the sill rail (see illustration).
WARNING!
The car ignition system has very high voltage!
The voltage in the ignition system is dangerous!
Do not touch spark plugs, ignition cables or the ignition coil when the engine is running or the
ignition is switched on!
The ignition should be switched off when:

Conducting engine tests.
● Replacing parts in the ignition system, such as spark plugs, ignition coil, distributor, ignition
cables, etc.
●
WARNING!
Never try to repair any part of the SRS or SIPS bag systems yourself. Any interference in the system
could cause malfunction and serious injury. Any work should only be performed by an authorized
Volvo workshop.
pg. 171 Working on your car
Belt check
Check the belt regularly to make sure it is in good condition and is clean. A worn or dirty belt can cause
poor cooling and low alternator output as well as impair the operation of the power steering and the air
conditioning unit.
NOTE: The drive belt is equipped with a self-tensioning mechanism and requires no adjustment
between changes.!
WARNING!
The engine must not be running when this check is
performed.
Check coolant level
The cooling system must be filled with coolant and not leak to operate at maximum efficiency. Check
the coolant level regularly. The level should be between the "MAX" and "MIN" marks on the expansion
tank. The check should be made with particular thoroughness when the engine is new or when the
cooling system has been drained.
Do not remove the filler cap other than for topping up with coolant. Frequent removal may prevent
coolant circulation between the engine and the expansion tank during engine warm up and cooling.
Changing coolant
Normally, the coolant does not need to be changed. If the system must be drained, consult your Volvo
retailer.

2002 Volvo S60
NOTE: Do not top off 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.
Top off with Volvo Genuine Coolant/Antifreeze only (a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze).
CAUTION:
The cooling system must always be kept filled to the correct level. If it is not kept filled, there can be
high local temperatures in the engine which could result in damage. Different types of antifreeze/coolant
may not be mixed.
WARNING!
Never remove the radiator cap while the engine is warm. Wait until the car
cools.
pg. 172 Hood and engine compartment

Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and
SJ/ Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of
file:///K|/ownersdocs/2002/2002_S60/02s60_11a.htm (7 of 13)12/30/2006 3:55:21 PM
2002 Volvo S60
oil with a quality rating equal to or higher that ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA
A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy,
engine performance, or engine protection.
Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and
engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils.
Oil additives must not be used.
NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at normal maintenance services. This oil is
only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.
Operation in hot climates
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your
engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W/30. See the viscosity chart below.
Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F
(30° C), SAE 5W/30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart at
right.
Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W/30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for
driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long
distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas.
Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals.
Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.

Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance service intervals.
The API Service Symbol "donut" is divided into three parts:
● The top half describes the oil's performance level.
● The center identifies the oil's viscosity.
● The bottom half tells whether the oil has demonstrated energy-conserving properties in a standard test
in comparison to a reference oil.
●
pg. 174 Oils and fluids
Checking the oil level
The oil level should be checked every time the car is refueled. This is especially important during the
period up to the first service.
CAUTION:
Not checking the oil level regularly can result in serious engine damage if the oil level becomes too low.
Park the car on a level surface and wait for at least 5 minutes after the engine has been switched off. Be
sure the oil level is maintained between the upper and lower marks on the dipstick. Low oil level can
cause internal damage to the engine and overfilling can result in high oil consumption. The distance
between the dipstick marks represents approx. 1.6 US qt (1.5 liter). The oil should preferably be checked
when cold, before the engine has been started.
NOTE: The engine must be stopped when checking the oil.
WARNING!
Do not allow oil to spill onto or come into contact with hot exhaust pipe
surfaces.
Adding oil (topping up)
● Add oil of the same kind as already used.

A label on the inside of each cover indicates the amperage and the electrical components that are
connected to each fuse.
The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it. Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult to
remove, you will find a special fuse removal tool in the passenger compartment fuse box. From the side,
examine the curved metal wire (see next page) to see if it is broken. If so, put in a new fuse of the same
color and amperage (written on the fuse). Spare fuses are stored in the fuse box in the passenger
compartment. If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system inspected by an authorized Volvo
retailer.

Three- way catalytic converter cautions
Keep your engine properly tuned. Certain engine malfunctions, particularly involving the electrical,
fuel or distributor ignition systems, may cause unusually high three- way catalytic converter
temperatures. Do not continue to operate your vehicle if you detect engine misfire, noticeable loss of
power or other unusual operating conditions, such as engine overheating or backfiring. A properly tuned

engine will help avoid malfunctions that could damage the three- way catalytic converter.
● Do not park your car over combustible materials, such as grass or leaves, which can come into contact
with the hot exhaust system and cause such materials to ignite under certain wind and weather
conditions.
● Excessive starter cranking (in excess of one minute), or an intermittently firing or flooded engine can
cause three- way catalytic converter or exhaust system overheating.
● Remember that tampering or unauthorized modifications to the engine, the Electronic Control
Module, or the vehicle may be illegal and can cause three- way catalytic converter or exhaust system
overheating. This includes:
- Altering fuel injection setting or components.
- Altering emission system components or location or removing components.
- Repeated use of leaded fuel.
NOTE: Unleaded fuel is required for cars with three-way catalytic converters.)

Charge air cooler (Intercooler)
Turbocharged engines employ a turbocompressor to force air into the engine inlet manifold and a charge
air cooler to cool the compressed inlet air. The resulting increase in air flow raises pressure in the intake
manifold and increases engine power over that developed by the normally-aspirated engine. The charge
air cooler (which resembles a radiator) is located between the turbo- compressor and inlet manifold.
Fuel system
The engine is equipped with a multiport fuel injection system.

Accessory Installation - Important Warning
We strongly recommend that Volvo owners install only genuine, Volvo-approved accessories, and
that accessory installations be performed only by the factory-trained technicians at your authorized
Volvo retailer.
● Genuine Volvo accessories are tested to ensure compatibility with the performance, safety, and
emission systems in your car. Additionally, your authorized Volvo retailer knows where accessories may
and may not be safely installed in your Volvo. In all cases, please consult your authorized Volvo retailer
before installing any accessory in or on your car.
● Accessories that have not been approved by Volvo may or may not be specifically tested for
compatibility with your car. 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 car.
● Damage caused by unapproved or improperly installed accessories may not be covered by your new
car 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.
●
Driver Distraction
● Driver distraction results from driver activities that are not directly related to controlling the car 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
