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.
