Volvo has identified that there may be an intermittent fault in the driver’s airbag clockspring wiring connector for the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). If this condition occurs, the SRS lamp will be permanently illuminated along with the following message in the Drivers Information Module (DIM) “AIRBAG SYSTEM SERVICE REQUIRED”. If the condition occurs during driving, and if the driver ignores the warning, should an accident occur where the deployment of the driver’s airbag is required, the driver’s airbag may not deploy as intended or not deploy at all. This poses an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety. The corrective action is to install a metal shim in the driver’s airbag clockspring wiring connector. This recall affects 9,746 vehicles in the U.S and 1,157 in Canada.

Safety precautions Always cut the current to the headlamps before replacing the lamps. Do not touch the high and low beam stalk during work due to the high voltage and risk of explosion. Remove the keys and lock the car. Allow the lamp to cool. Use protective goggles and gloves when replacing the lamp. The glass body of the Bi-Xenon-lamp is filled with different gases and metal vapors which are under pressure. Never touch the glass body of the lamp. Only touch the lamp at the socket. Remove any finger prints from the glass using a cloth and alcohol. The lamp must only be used in enclosed headlamps. The replaced Bi-Xenon lamp must be treated as hazardous waste and must be sent for recycling.
