Engine compartment overview
Some of the components included in the car's electric drive system are located under the bonnet. Exercise caution in this area and only touch anything that is related to normal maintenance.
Several components in the car work with high-voltage current that could be dangerous in the event of incorrect intervention.
- Do not touch anything that is not clearly described in the owner's manual.
- Exercise caution when checking/refilling fluids in the engine compartment.
Remember that the radiator fan (located at the front of the engine compartment, behind the radiator) may start or continue to operate automatically for up to approx. 6 minutes after the engine has been switched off.
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. There is a risk of fire if the engine is hot.
The ignition system works at a very high and hazardous voltage. The car's electrical system must always be in ignition position 0 when work is being performed in the engine compartment.
Do not touch the spark plugs or ignition coil when the car's electrical system is in ignition position II or when the engine is hot.
