    Your problem is more than likely a bad module (under the consule). After you replace it you will need a EOBD scanner to reset the warning.

    sometimes if you unplug the battery with the key in the ignition or on position, it will trigger the srs-air bag light. you need a special scan tool for Volvos to reset. I had to buy one ($250) online. I reset mine. or go to dealer and have them reset it usually $95.00 (you can not reset this with unplugging the battery).

Just unhook the battery for about 20 minutes. if you have an anti-theft radio make sure you know the code and how to enter it.

Some swear this works, others say it doesn't.
If it doesn't, the only other solution appears to be having the dealer reset the code. From what I read, it happens all the time if you do work and don't disconnect the negative on the battery. Try this...

Turn ignition position 1
Press and hold the odometer reset button
Turn ignition to position 2 (continue to hold odometer reset button)
After the Service Light flashes, release the reset button.
Tip: Do not wait for the light to stop flashing. Release the reset button within 5 seconds from the beginning of flashing. this should reset the service light. you must be in t1 for the reset to work it will not reset in t2 mode.

You have to have a Volvo dealer hook a scanner up and download new information to that new module to tell the pcm and bcm what to do!

On my S80, I had to replace the airbag module (under the console just behind the shifter). Once it was replaced, my Autel EODB scanner reset the warning. The key to this is, you have a European car that requires a European ODB scanner for resets.

If the ignition/trip meter process fails, find a local Volvo dealer with the VIDA/DiCE and have them reset it. It's a 5 minute process to hook the computer to the car and reset that light.

Also make sure your seatbelt latch is working properly. They've been known to trip that light once in a while. A connector comes undone when you move the seat back/forward and then trips the light.

You can buy a pirate version of VIDA with a DiCE box on eBay for around $100 and do it yourself.

What does srs-airbag service urgent reset mean?


It means you must go to the dealer or a reputable Volvo mechanic so they can find out which of your sensors.. either in the bumper, or dash are not reporting. Otherwise it may not deploy at the time of an emergency. Usually this light goes off in older cars that haven't been serviced in a while.

Unfortunately, it's going to need to go to a dealer, or an approved Volvo shop that has the proper computer to reset it.
If you have a friendly local shop around you who's approved and capable, they will probably do it for next to nothing.

You need an EOBD reader. Your fault is probably in the module (located in the console) (it's bolted to the hump). The code reader will specify the fault.
