The indicator symbols alert the driver that a function is activated, that a system is operating, or that a fault or abnormal condition exists.

Symbol

Specification

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

Fault in brake system

The symbol lights up when there is a fault in the parking brake.

ABS fault

If this symbol illuminates then the system is not working. The car's regular brake system continues to work, but without the ABS function.

Automatic brake on

The brake holds the car stationary when it has stopped. The symbol illuminates when the function is activated and the foot brake or parking brake is acting.

Tyre pressure system

The symbol illuminates when tyre pressure is too low. If there is a fault in the tyre pressure system, the symbol will flash for approx. 1 minute and then illuminate with a constant glow. This may be because the system cannot detect or warn of low tyre pressure as intended.

Emissions system

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 an authorised Volvo workshop is contacted.

Left and right-hand direction indicator

The symbols flash when the direction indicators are used.

Position lamps/daytime running lights

The symbol lights up when the position lamps/daytime running lights are on.

ABL fault

The symbol illuminates if a fault has arisen in the ABL function (Active Bending Lights).

Preconditioning on

Stability system

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.

Grey symbol: Lane assistance is on but road lines are not detected.

Yellow symbol: Lane assistance warns/intervenes.
