Volvo XC90: Driver support / Speed-dependent steering wheel resistance

Speed-dependent power steering increases the steering wheel resistance in pace with the vehicle's speed, which can help give the driver an enhanced feeling of control and stability. Steering is stiffer on highways. When parking and at low speeds, it will be easier to move the steering wheel.

Reduced power

In rare situations, the power steering may need to work at reduced power and the steering wheel may then feel more difficult to move. This may happen when the power steering becomes too hot and needs to be temporarily cooled. It can also happen if there is a disturbance in power supply.

Volvo XC90. Speed-dependent steering wheel resistance If there is reduced power, the message Power steering Assistance temporarily reduced and this symbol are shown in the instrument panel.

While the power steering is working at reduced power, the driver support functions and systems with steering assistance are not available.

WARNING

If the temperature rises too high, the power steering may be forced to switch off completely. In such a situation, the driver display shows the message Power steering failure Stop safely along with a symbol.
