My 2012 XC90 has the following codes: U042864, C110787,

Hi. My 2012 XC90 has the following codes: U042864, C110787, C110668, C004801, C110687, C11768JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?Customer: I have not tried to reset. The codes were pulled at an independent repair shop, but they are not Volvo certified so I didn't want them doing anything. I'm assuming your last message was sent before mine listing all the codes. If not, let me know.JA: Are you fixing your XC90 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I'm trying to figure out if it is a repair I can handle or if I need to take it in. I'm good with basic stuff like oil changes and brake pad changes, but I don't have much experience with more complicated things.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: The car drives fine, but it is my wife's car so I would rather make sure it is safe.

I have a 2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD with 190,000 miles.

I have a 2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD with 190,000 miles. Driving home 4 days ago on a smooth highway, the "SRS Airbag Service Urgent" message came on, and has stayed on. Today I read the SRS codes with a Launch CReader 8100, SRS-0040 came up. The reader names this as "Right front side impact protection (SPS) bag signal too high". ("SPS" probably should be "SIPS".) I cleared the code, and it has stayed off for an hour of driving.I expect that whatever triggered the code will do so again. What is the best next step, if/when the code returns? Further diagnostics? Replace the wiring harness from the SRS control module to the right bag and/or right seat belt tensioner? Replace one or both of those items?Does the SRS still work for the driver's side when the error message is showing, or is the entire system disabled?This is the most useful info I've found online: http://www.justanswer.com/volvo/7pc3d-volvo-s60-2-4-getting-code-0034-srs-left-front.html

Brandon hope you still around... anyway the Airbag light

Hi Brandon hope you still around... anyway the Airbag light came on on my 2000 Volvo S40 out of nowhere! I turned the car on this morning and light stayed on. Tried few time same result. I turn the car on light goes out and comes back on immediately. No flashing. Since my scanner does not read SRS codes I was trying to get code,by number of flashes,pause,number flashes method,but since there none of those,don't know what to do.The only cause I can think about was the fact I left driver's window opened overnight 2 weeks ago, it rained that night and got seat and floor wet....I dried them the following day and this happens now...Could it be related? Anything you can suggest me to do or should I just take it to a shop?

Hello, I installed an after market Sony Stereo on my 2004 S60 . I now have a message: SRS Service Airbags Urgent. Any ideas?JA: Is this an aftermarket stereo, or did it come with the car?Customer: After marketJA: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I only replaced the stereoJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: About two weeks ago, I had the check engine light come on. Took it to my mechanic and they said the gas cap needed replaced. They installed new cap and light went off. The check engine light is back on. I went to Auto Zone and the only code came up was again for bad gas cap. We open fuel cap and re tightened cap, but light still remains on. No code was found for the SRS Service Airbags Urgent message.

My wife had a fairly low speed collision with another car:

My wife had a fairly low speed collision with another car: She rear-ended a brand new Volvo with her 1994 Volvo. Damage to the other car was about $2,000 and me and a friend tender to her car with a new hood, lights, grille, etc. It seems the V60 rode up into her grille without contacting her bumper head on. The question is this: The SRS light is on now continuously. I heard tell from a pal that he has a friend who replaced the collision sensor only to have the airbags deploy at that moment! Hers did not deploy -- maybe the impact was insufficient, but with her hood bent into a pup tent I should think they would've gone off. I am not happy that her car may not be able to respond properly in regards ***** ***** air bags. Is there something I might do to repair this situation so she has that protection? I am used to doing simple things like brakes and basic tune-ups so I am not all thumbs.
