I have a 2011 Volvo XC60. The warning light for the airbag

Customer Question

I have a 2011 Volvo XC60. The warning light for the airbag comes on and says "SRS Airbag Service Urgent". It only comes on in hot weather and goes away in cool weather. From what I can read on many forums it is related to the "Closing Velocity Module" on the dash, perhaps when it gets too hot. My dealer thinks I should replace the CVM ($865) and told me that my airbags won't work if the SRS Airbag warning is showing. This doesn't sound right to me and I am not sure replacing the CVM will fix the problem if the car continues to sit in the sun outside the garage. Opinions?

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

On the first part, it is true that if the Airbag/SRS warning light is on that in the event of an accident the airbags will not deploy. This system is disabled when a fault is registered. This is to prevent unintentional deployment of the airbag while driving down the road due to fault in the system.

As to the issue, did the dealer tell you what the fault code number or definition is that they retrieved when they checked the system?
