A water leak between the front outer panel and cowl panels may result in corrosion of the front door wiring connector pins if the vehicle is operated in areas where road salt is used. The corrosion may affect the operation of the electrical circuits in the door, such as the speakers, power windows, etc. To correct this condition, reseal the seams and inspect the door wiring connectors for corrosion. If necessary, replace the door wiring connector and the door wiring by following the service procedures described in this TSB. SEALING THE PANEL SEAMS: NOTE: This sealing procedure applies to both left and right sides. 1. Open the hood. 2. Locate the “A” pillar outer panel and cowl panel seaming area at the base of the “A” pillar. 3. Lift up the lower end of windshield glass molding to obtain space for sealant application. 4. Clean the sealant application area on both the left and right sides of the vehicle (fender removed in photo for clarity). 5. Apply clear sealant along the seam line between “A” pillar panel and cowl panel from the engine compartment as shown in the photo. 6. Use appropriate tool or finger (with rubber nitrate gloves) to smooth material to seal the sealant. NOTE: Apply enough sealant to completely fill the seam. Be careful not to drip excess sealant in the engine compartment or on the hood. – Photo shows panel seams where sealant is applied on left side. – Repeat for the right side. 7. Open the front door. 8. Apply the clear sealant to the seam between “A” pillar panel and the fender mounting bracket from inside the door opening. 9. Apply the clear sealant to the bottom of the fender mounting bracket and the top of the hinge. 10. Use appropriate tool or finger (with rubber nitrate gloves) to smooth material to seal the sealant. NOTE: Apply enough sealant to completely fill the seam. Be careful not to drip excess sealant on the door trim or in the interior. – Sealant is applied along the top edge of the fender bracket.

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.

2005-2006 model year Pontiac G6 vehicles. Some of these vehicles have a condition where the brake lamps may not operate properly because of fretting corrosion in a wiring connector. Fretting corrosion in the connector could cause the brake lamps to illuminate when the brake pedal has not been depressed, or the lamps may not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. In addition, the cruise control may not engage, or greater brake pedal force may be required to shift the vehicle out of PARK. Brake lamps that are not operating properly may not warn a driver in a following vehicle of the braking status and could lead to a crash without prior warning. apply a dielectric lubricant to the connector to repair and prevent fretting corrosion.
