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.
