Keylock (automatic transmission)
When you switch off the ignition, the gear selector must be in the (P)ark position before the key can be removed from the ignition switch.
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
The ABS system in your car performs a self-diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.
Fuel filler door
The fuel filler door, located on the right rear fender, is connected to your car's central locking system.
Press the button on the light switch panel (see illustration on page 30) when the car is at a standstill to unlock the fuel filler door. Please note that the fuel filler door will remain unlocked until the car begins to move forward. An audible click will be heard when the fuel filler door relocks.
Fuel filler cap
After refueling, close the fuel filler cap by turning it clockwise until it clicks into place. If this cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (" Check Engine" light) will illuminate.
Before you operate your car for the first time, please familiarize yourself with the new- engine oil consumption information on page 78. You should also be familiar with the information in chapters one, two and four of this manual.
Information contained in the balance of the manual is extremely useful and should be read after operating the vehicle for the first time.
The manual is structured so that it can be used for reference. For this reason, it should be kept in the car for ready access.
Do not export your Volvo to another country before investigating that country's applicable safety and exhaust emission requirements. In some cases it may be difficult or impossible to comply with these requirements. Modifications to the emission control system( s) may render your Volvo not certifiable for legal operation in the U. S., Canada and other countries.
All information, illustrations and specifications contained in this manual are based on the latest product information available at the time of publication. Please note that some vehicles may be equipped differently, depending on special legal requirements. Optional equipment described in this manual may not be available in all markets.
Volvo reserves the right to make model changes at any time, or to change specifications or design without notice and without incurring obligation.
CALIFORNIA Proposition 65 Warning!
|Volvo and the environment|
On the surface of the radiator in the engine compartment, there is a special coating called PremAir®. PremAir® works as a catalytic converter, converting most of the ground level ozone passing through the radiator into oxygen, thereby reducing harmful ground-level ozone.
