    "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.
