Customer Question
I own a 2008 Volvo...
I own a 2008 Volvo S 60. The check airbag light went on and they shut off the passenger side airbag automatically. I want to get this fixed, but I need to have an idea of what it's going to cost me. Any ideas?

HI,

Unless you have had it scanned for fault codes and can give me the fault code number, it is about impossible to give a price for repair. The airbag warning light can come on due to a faulty driver, passenger, side or seat airbag, faulty coil spring in the steering wheel, faulty control module, faulty seat belt pretensioner or tensioner, faulty passenger side seat occupancy sensor or short/open in the wiring circuit.

As you can see, there are a whole lot of causes and without knowing which, the best I can do is give you a wide range of repair cost - ranging from $200 for wiring issue up to $1500 for an airbag or control module - prices are for parts and labor
