Volvo Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
The ABS system performs a brief self-diagnostic test when the engine has been started and driver releases the brake pedal. Another automatic test may be performed when the vehicle first reaches a speed of approximately 6 mph (10 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.
Volvo Fuel filler door
Press the button on the light switch panel (see the illustration in Refueling – opening/closing fuel filler door (p. 289)) when the vehicle is at a standstill to unlock the fuel filler door. It will relock when closed and there will be an audible click.
Volvo Structural Parts Statement
Volvo has always been and continues to be a leader in automotive safety. Volvo engineers and manufactures vehicles designed to help protect vehicle occupants in the event of a collision.
Volvos are designed to absorb the impact of a collision. This energy absorption system including, but not limited to, structural components such as bumper reinforcement bars, bumper energy absorbers, frames, rails, fender aprons, A-pillars, B-pillars and body panels must work together to maintain cabin integrity and protect the vehicle occupants.
The supplemental restraint system including but not limited to air bags, side curtain air bags, and deployment sensors work together with the above components to provide proper timing for air bag deployment. Due to the above, Volvo Cars of North America does not support the use of aftermarket, alternative or anything other than original Volvo parts for collision repair.
