Have you checked the handbook as this is certainly covered in mine.

Martin, unfortunately I dont have the handbook........

What model of Volvo is it ? Could be that someone else can look in their handbook if we know.

Right. By model I meant 850, V/s 70 etc.

I can't access my handbook at the moment as I still haven't fixed the locked glovebox problem I have had since May/June :slap:

From memory the warning lights for low fuel, bulb out, washer level, water level, ABS, TRACS, Lambda sensor(Engine management), service, (come on as a check that the bulbs are working), handbrake, oil pressure and alternator charge all should come on. I don't remember is there a SRS light? If so this will also illuminate.

On starting up all should extinguish except hand brake on, (assuming it is applied of course). Other lights may stay on if the function they alert for has an issue.

I dont think the ABS light is coming on, will check when I get home and contact you. If anyone could upload a pic it would be helpful. Thanks

Your Volvo dealer will sell you a handbook for about 6; good value. They can also get you a printout of the car's history, usually free.
Cheers, Chris.
