Volvo S80 "SRS airbag urgent" warning when jump starting car
Volvo S80 Problem
Model Year Affected: 1999
Average Mileage: 116,000 mi (64,750 mi - 170,252 mi)
"SRS airbag service required URGENT" warning message appeared after I jump started the car (with some arcing -- battery was very dead). Internet research confirmed this is common problem -- also happens when negative (ground) wire is not disconnected when working on sound system or air conditioning. Must be taken to dealer to reset the warning message (Volvo proprietary bus message). My cost was $60.
Not fixed just purchased car with problem.
