Re: SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT (barrysharp)

Hmmm - I think it means that your airbag system is in urgent need of service.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm at dealership at this moment to have this checked out. Will post back what they do to resolve situation and what caused the display message in first place. The dealerships are becoming more and more Internet aware for customer lounges these days. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> My dealership now provides Broadband and Wireless hot spot - about time too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT (barrysharp)

FYI...<p>OK - so after about 15 mins they indicated the Driver's Information Module - DIM (it's inside of dashboard console/pod) has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced. Airbags aren't functional while this DIM is out-of-service. Parts have to be ordered and will take some 1.5 hrs to install behind dashboard console.<p>Car under warranty but would cost some $810 plus tax if out of warranty. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

I had the same problem on my 05 several months ago. They replaced it under warranty- not a problem since.<p>-c

Out of curiousity, did you take apart your ac module before the SRS warning appeared?

As I was having my ipod interface installed behind the center console, the ac module was disconnected and I got that same message too. The dealership was aware that this might happen and they just reset it. No harm done.

Re: SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT (RainyS60R)

OK, I’m prefacing this with a standard disclaimer (don’t want to get sued). I am not a Volvo engineer and you should not assume the following information to necessarily be 100% correct. Always talk to/take your car in to/ the dealer when you get a warning message on the DIM – especially when it comes to SRS! <p><br>The critical portions of the SRS system are self contained (crash sensors, explosive charges, etc). i.e. they are connected directly to the SRS module under the center console.<p>The SRS and the DIM communicate over the low speed CAN network. It just so happens that the low speed CAN network wiring goes through the climate control module connector. i.e. it’s a pass-through connection and also provides the CCM a point of connection on the network.<p>What happens is the SRS module has the “responsibility” for determining if the SRS light on the DIM needs to be illuminated or not. The SRS module expects the DIM to indicate over the low speed CAN network whether the SRS light is currently illuminated or not. If the SRS module does not see the status message from the DIM, the SRS module stores a fault code – which unlike other codes will NOT simply clear after so many engine restarts. When communication is restored between the DIM and SRS modules, the DIM sees the status message from the SRS module that it has a stored fault code and in turn displays that lovely SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT message. <p>It is extremely doubtful that unplugging the CCM and getting that error message renders SRS inoperable (these guys are not dumb). However, you still need to have the message looked at – could have other more critical issues.<br>

You can also trigger this message if you remove your deck without disconnecting the battery

Re: SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT (frankhoffy)

Would that be the trick? I mean, I have the light on right now because I removed the A/C panel. NOW, had I discoed the batt. and let it sit for tem minutes and then removed the panel, the SRS light would not have come on?<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>frankhoffy</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">You can also trigger this message if you remove your deck without disconnecting the battery</TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: SRS - AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT (barrysharp)

Sad news I'm afraid. Also I must apologise as this issue was with my MY2003 XC70 which has a similar equipment level as my S60R so presumably applies to it as well - so thought it appropriate to post here to share the experience.<p>An update...<p>So car was operating without problem last Friday after picking car up from my dealership who made repairs on the "SRS-Airbag Service Urgent" display issue. The car was used every day since then, driven some 250 miles without any issues and with one fuel tank fill up and today it all broke lose again with my wife driving the car around town some. After extracting all of the grundgy details from my wife here's what I've come up with.<p>1. Wife started car today after it being parked in garage all night. The car was fully functional and without any issues as she drove it some 30 miles to her destination. As she was starting to locate a parking place she noticed a complete blackout on the driver's dash display - speedometer not working, tach not working fuel gauge not working, temp gauge not working, odometer not working(blank), indicator green arrows not working but indicator lights were, radio working, climate control system working, electric windows working and headlights working.<p>2. Wife found parking place and parked car. Turned engine off and exited the car. The remote would not lock the car so she manually locked it.<p>3. Wife returned to car some 45 mins later and was able to open it with remote fob Unlock button. Engine was started and ALL the driver's dash displays were fully operational EXCEPT that now the "SRS-Airbag Service Urgent" was now displaying in the computer readout display. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>4. At some time after starting the car (wife believes it was quite soon after) the driver's dash display went blank as before with absolutely nothing registering nor displayed.<p>5. Wife tried to get hold of me but I had left my Cell at home and I was tooling around town and was completely out-of-touch.<p>6. Wife was very nervous about driving the car knowing that Airbags were inoperative and there was no telling what speed she was driving nor if the engine was overheating etc etc etc. (Lesson learned here is to have the Volvo dealership's phone number in glove box for such occasions)<p>7. Wife drove car to another location near to home (some 30 miles), stopped and turned engine off and was able to lock car using the remote Lock button.<p>8. Wife returns to car and it unlocks with Remote and everything is in complete working order but still with the "SRS-Airbag Service Urgent" message being displayed.<p>9. Wife gets home and parks in garage and tells me her story.<p>10. I use my Remote to start car and drive it about some and all is working correctly with the sole exception of the "SRS-Airbag Service Urgent" being displayed.<p>At this point it's pretty darn clear to me that Volvo service last Friday messed things up and that it being a coincident is just too far fetched IMO.<p>This is very disappointing (mildly speaking now) and will now have to spend time again getting this problem resolved. <p>I'm wondering if this had been an out of warranty repair last Friday would I now be on the hook to get this follow-on problem resolved.<br>

I removed the deck to hardwire my radar detector without a problem (did not disconnect battery, but also did not have key in the ignition). However, my brother turneded his key with the deck out of the dash in order to test the connection to his detector and he got the SRS light. But, of course, if you want to be safe, disconnect the battery to be sure....<p>Albert
