There is none, BUT if the airbags go off, it'll turn off the engine as a safety feature.

All it takes to 'reset' that is to turn the ignition off and then back on/try to start it again and it should - barring any damage preventing it from starting.

There are several parts that could cause that message, and getting it to a garage to properly diagnose it would be a great idea. If it's the I think it was 2001 to 2009 model, one huge culprit for that error, especially if it is intermittent and more often seen in hotter weather, is the "clockspring" or steering wheel position sensor. It determines the position of the steering wheel to help the anti-skid system determine how to apply breaking or torque to the wheels as needed. It's a known failure point and easy to replace, but can cost between about $250 and $350 easily. Other culprits could be a yaw rate sensor or a sensor in the wheel area that determines the rotation speed of the wheel. That part is super easy to get to and cheap to replace, but usually don't go bad.

This would involve most likely rolling window to the bottom as far as it will go and then opening door. Remove door panel and trim and use a flashlight to look for the fasteners holding this to the door. This should have 1-2 rods that are held in place by plastic locking pieces and clip to the outside of the rod and I side the whole in the handle.

Ok when you move the key to start the car. you need the following definitions.

pos 0 equals car off
pos 1 equals acessory position
pos 2 equals run position (NOT START)
pos 3 equals start position

check your drivers information module, and see that your triip display is in trip 1 (T1)

then put your car into position 1. push and HOLD the trip reset meter. WHILE HOLDING the reset button, rotate the key to position 2. Hold the reset button until you see the triangle in the dash flash yellow. Once this starts flashing remove your finger from the reset button. Shut the car off, verify light is out. repeat once if necessary.

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

thermostats do not keep water in a radiator
There purpose is to maintain the correct coolant flow rate so as to maintain correct engine operating temp
The cap will be the problem if it is a radiator cap/ pressure cap
always check coolant level in the radiator
take it to a radiator shop and have cooling system pressure test dine to check for leaks
