Warning - bonnet not closed
Open bonnet is indicated by a warning symbol and graphic in the driver display as well as by an acoustic signal.
If the car indicates that the bonnet is open despite it being fully closed – open the bonnet and follow the instructions for closing again. Visit a workshop if the problem persists – an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
Close the bonnet
Make sure that nothing is in the way of the bonnet closing to avoid crushing damage.
Lower the bonnet until it reaches the bonnet lock catch.
Press down on the bonnet with both hands in order to fully close it.
The bonnet must be audibly locked on both sides.
Check that the bonnet has been properly locked and that it is not open slightly.
Never drive with an open bonnet.
Thoroughly check that the bonnet is fully closed after it has been open.
If the car warns or indicates that the bonnet is open, or if something else suggests that it is not fully closed – stop immediately and close it firmly.
