Important information on accessories, extra equipment and diagnostic socket

Incorrect connection and installation of accessories, extra equipment or software/diagnostic tools may have a negative effect on the car's electronic system.

Certain accessories only function when associated software is installed in the car's computer system. Volvo therefore recommends always making contact with an authorised Volvo workshop before the installation of accessories or extra equipment that are connected to or affect the electrical system.

Connection of equipment to the car's diagnostic socket


Volvo Cars accepts no responsibility for the consequences of cases where non-authorised equipment is connected to the car's data link connector (On-Board-Diagnostics (OBD-II)).
