    I think that might require a dealer visit.

    Did you have the battery still connected when you took the centre console out? If so, (and as per the other thread), get thee to a Volvo dealer or possibly a competent Volvo specialist if there's one near.

    Don't think that'll fix it.

    I assume your location is Oban?

    If you're near Edinburgh anytime soon I can try to clear the codes with my DiCE unit.

    This happened on my R when I did some work behind the dials.It can only be cleared by the dealer I`m afraid.Around 50 it cost me.

    I dont think so.My son is a volvo trained techie and he couldnt do anything with it when I got that message.You could always wait for the car to go in to Volvo for some work.In that case they are obliged to clear the message for you as it is an errant display.

    It takes 1 minute.They`ll do it while you wait normally.I usually only use dealers for parts but every now and then you have no choice.

    This method only removes the "time for regular service" message.

    BUT... if you tell the mot blokey that there is an error with your DIM and the info screen conks out from time to time, they should know that the SRS warning is another symptom of the DIM failing
    Mine went through 2 MOTs with the warning and triangle

    Unfortunatly from Jan 1 this year, that won't work, It's now a failure if the lights stay on, wether it's a dimm fault or not.

    Oh dear! My srs service light is due to come on in 2013 as it's actually due, rather than just a fault how annoying!

    Find a volvo indy near you. It shouldnt cost 50 to get it cleared. I get all mine done at my local indy, hes never charged me for clearing codes etc etc, but then again I spend a few bob there, so fairs fair.

    Volvo is or was 25 to clear codes.

    For future reference you MUST disconnect the battery before unplugging anything behind the dash. The SRS light comes on for fun other wise.

    Right booked into taggart's glasgow for friday 17th february. had to book a half hour appointment for the 'srs airbag service urgent' light to be taken off.

    ive also booked another half hour appointment to hopefully get a software upgrade to get my new heated seats working. im hoping that i can just take the heated seat buttons with me and it's just a case of plugging them in and getting the software installed....;-)

    49 for each half hour appointment.!
