Cruise control

Radar sensor

Updated 7/23/2018

The function of the radar sensor is to detect cars or larger vehicles in the same direction, in the same lane.

The radar sensor is used by the following functions:

  • Distance Warning*
  • Adaptive cruise control*
  • Collision Warning System with Auto Brake and Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection*


In the event of visible damage to the car's grille, or if you suspect that the radar sensor may be damaged:

  • Contact a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.

The function may completely or partially disappear - or malfunction - if the grille, the radar sensor or its bracket is damaged or has loosened.

Modification of the radar sensor could result in it being illegal to use.
