The symbol illuminates if a fault has arisen in the ABL function (Active Bending Lights).
If the symbol illuminates after the engine has been started then it may be due to a fault in the car's emissions system. Drive to a workshop for checking. Volvo recommends that you seek assistance from an authorised Volvo workshop.
If this symbol illuminates then the system is not working. The car's regular brake system continues to work, but without the ABS function.
Rear fog lamp on
This symbol illuminates when the rear fog lamp is switched on.
A flashing symbol indicates that the stability system is operating. If the symbol illuminates with constant glow then there is a fault in the system.
Stability system, sport mode
Sport mode allows for a more active driving experience. The system then detects whether the accelerator pedal, steering wheel movements and cornering are more active than in normal driving and then allows controlled skidding of the rear section up to a certain level before it intervenes and stabilises the car. The symbol illuminates when the sport mode is activated.
Engine preheater (diesel)
This symbol illuminates during engine preheating. Preheating takes place mostly due to low temperature.
Low level in fuel tank
When the symbol illuminates the level in the fuel tank is low, refuel as soon as possible.
Information, read display text
When one of the car's systems does not behave as intended, this information symbol illuminates and a text appears on the information display.

The information symbol can also illuminate in conjunction with other symbols.

The symbol shines when the engine is auto-stopped.
Tyre pressure system
The symbol illuminates in the event of low tyre pressure, or if a fault arises in the tyre pressure system.
