Volvo XC90: Safety / Starting and moving the vehicle when it is in safety mode

If safety mode has been set, it may be possible to reset the system in order to start and move the vehicle a short distance, for example, if it is blocking traffic.

Starting the vehicle when it is in safety mode

  1. Check the vehicle for damage, particularly for fuel leakage. Make sure you do not detect any gasoline fumes.

    If the damage to the vehicle is minor and there is no fuel leakage/fumes, you may attempt to start the engine.

    WARNING

    Never attempt to restart the vehicle if you smell fuel fumes when the message Safety mode See Owner's manual is displayed in the instrument panel. Leave the vehicle immediately.

  2. Switch off the ignition.
  3. Then try to start the vehicle.
    • The vehicle's electrical system will perform a system check and then attempt to reset to normal operating mode.

CAUTION

If the message Safety mode See Owner's manual is still displayed, the vehicle should not be driven or towed behind another vehicle. If the vehicle needs to be moved, it must be towed on a tow truck. Even if no damage is apparent, there may be hidden damage that could make the vehicle impossible to control.

Moving the vehicle when it is in safety mode

  1. If the message Normal mode The car is now in normal mode is displayed after attempting to start the engine, the vehicle may be moved carefully from its present position if, for example, it is blocking traffic.
  2. Do not move the vehicle farther than absolutely necessary.

WARNING

When the vehicle is in safety mode, it should not be towed behind another vehicle. It should be towed from the site on a tow truck. Volvo recommends towing the vehicle directly to an authorized Volvo workshop.
