Convertible seats

Suitable child restraints should always be

used when children (depending on their age/

size) are seated in the vehicle.

Securing a convertible seat with a seat
belt

G018630

Do not place the convertible seat in the front

passenger's seat

NOTE

Refer to (p. 54) and (p. 55) for informa-

tion on securing a child restraint using

ISOFIX/LATCH lower anchors and/or top

tether anchorages.

Convertible seats can be used in either a for-

ward or rearward-facing position, depending

on the age and size of the child.

G022847

Route the seat belt through the convertible seat

WARNING

Always use a convertible seat that is suita-

ble for the child's age and size. See the

convertible seat manufacturer's recom-

mendations.

1. Place the convertible seat in the rear seat

of the vehicle.

WARNING

A small child's head represents a con-

siderable part of its total weight and its

neck is still very weak. Volvo recom-

mends that children up to age 4 travel,

properly restrained, facing rearward. In

addition, Volvo recommends that chil-

dren should ride rearward facing, prop-

erly restrained, as long as possible.

Convertible child seats should be instal-

led in the rear seat only.

A rear-facing convertible seat should

not be positioned behind the driver's

seat unless there is adequate space for

safe installation.

Securing a child seat

Refer also to the child seat manufacturer's

instructions for information on securing the

child seat.

WARNING

Always refer to the recommendations

made by the child restraint manufac-

turer.

Volvo recommends that the top tether

anchors be used when installing a for-

ward-facing child restraint.

Never route a top tether strap over the

top of the head restraint. The strap

should be routed beneath the head

restraint.

Child restraint anchorages are

designed to withstand only those

loads imposed by correctly fitted child

restraints. Under no circumstances are

they to be used for adult seat belts or

harnesses. The anchorages are not

able to withstand excessive forces on

them in the event of collision if full har-

ness seat belts or adult seat belts are

installed to them. An adult who uses a

belt anchored in a child restraint

anchorage runs a great risk of suffer-

ing severe injuries should a collision

occur.

Do not install rear speakers that

require the removal of the top tether

anchors or interfere with the proper

use of the top tether strap.

Eco Guide* and Power Meter*

Eco guide and Power guide are two gauges in

the instrument panel that help improve driving

economy.
The vehicle also stores driving-related statis-

tics in the form of a bar graph, see Trip com-

puter – Trip statistics (p. 105).

Introduction
To display or remove these functions from the

instrument panel, select the "Eco" theme (see

Information displays – introduction (p. 58)).
Driving statistics are also stored and can be

displayed in the form of a bar chart (see Trip

computer – Trip statistics (p. 105)).

Eco Guide
This gauge gives an indication of how eco-

nomically the vehicle is being driven.

Current (instantaneous) reading

Average

Current (instantaneous) reading

This is the current level of economical driving;

the higher the reading, the more economically

the vehicle is being driven.
This value is calculated based on the vehi-

cle's speed, engine speed (rpm), engine load

and brake use.
The optimal speed range is between approxi-

mately 30–50 mph (50–80 km/h), preferably at

as low rpm as possible. The markers fall

when the brake or accelerator pedal is

pressed.
If the current reading is very low, the red field

in the gauge will illuminate after a slight delay,

indicating low driving economy.

Average

The average reading changes gradually

according to changes in the current reading

to indicate how economically the vehicle has

been driven recently. The higher the average

reading, the more economically the vehicle

has been driven.

Power Meter
This gauge indicates the engine power that

has been utilized and the amount of power

remaining.

Malfunction Indicator Light

As you drive, a computer called On-Board

Diagnostics II (OBDII) monitors your vehicle's

engine, transmission, electrical and emission

systems.
The malfunction indicator light will illuminate if

the computer senses a condition that poten-

tially may need correcting. When this hap-

pens, please have your vehicle checked by a

trained and qualified Volvo service technician

as soon as possible.
A malfunction indicator light may have many

causes. Sometimes, you may not notice a

change in your car's behavior. Even so, an

uncorrected condition could hurt fuel econ-

omy, emission controls, and drivability.

Extended driving without correcting the cause

could even damage other components in

your vehicle.
This light may illuminate if the fuel filler cap is

not closed tightly or if the engine was running

while the vehicle was refueled.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

If the warning light comes on, there may be a

malfunction in the ABS system (the standard

braking system will still function). Check the

system by:
1. Stopping in a safe place and switching off

the ignition.

2. Restart the engine.

3. If the warning light goes off, no further

action is required.

If the indicator light remains on, the vehicle

should be driven to a trained and qualified

Volvo service technician for inspection, see

Brakes – general (p. 228) for additional infor-

mation.

Rear fog lights

This symbol indicates that the rear fog lights

are on.

Stability system

This indicator symbol flashes when the stabil-

ity system is actively working to stabilize the

vehicle, see Stability system – introduction

(p. 141) for more detailed information.

This symbol illuminates to indicate that the

stability system's Sport mode has been acti-

vated to help provide maximum tractive force,

for example when driving with snow chains,

or driving in deep snow or loose sand.

Low fuel level

When this light comes on, the vehicle should

be refueled as soon as possible. See Refuel-

ing – fuel requirements (p. 239) for informa-

tion about fuel and refueling.

Generator not charging

This symbol comes on during driving if a fault

has occurred in the electrical system. Contact

an authorized Volvo workshop.

Engine temperature

Engine overheating can result from low oil or

coolant levels, towing or hard driving at high

heat and altitude, or mechanical malfunction.

Engine overheating will be signaled with text

and a red warning triangle in the middle of the

instrument display. The exact text will depend

on the degree of overheating. It may range

from 

High engine temp Reduce speed

 to

High engine temp Stop engine

. If appropri-

ate, other messages, such as 

Coolant level

low, Stop safely

 will also be displayed. If

your engine does overheat so that you must

stop the engine, always allow the engine to

cool before attempting to check oil and cool-

ant levels.
See Engine compartment – coolant (p. 288)

for more information.

Fault in brake system

If this symbol lights, the brake fluid level may

be too low. Stop the vehicle in a safe place

and check the level in the brake fluid reser-

voir, see Engine compartment – brake fluid

(p. 289). If the level in the reservoir is below

MIN, the vehicle should be transported to an

authorized Volvo workshop to have the brake

system checked.

If the 

 and 

 symbols come on

at the same time, there may be a fault in the

brake force distribution system.
1. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and turn

off the engine.

2. Restart the engine.

If both symbols extinguish, continue driv-

ing.

If the symbols remain on, check the level

in the brake fluid reservoir, see Engine

compartment – brake fluid (p. 289). If the

brake fluid level is normal but the sym-

bols are still lit, the vehicle can be driven,

with great care, to an authorized Volvo

workshop to have the brake system

checked.

If the level in the reservoir is below MIN,

the vehicle should be transported to an

authorized Volvo workshop to have the

brake system checked.

WARNING

If the fluid level is below the MIN mark

in the reservoir or if a warning mes-

sage is displayed in the text window:

DO NOT DRIVE. Have the vehicle

towed to a trained and qualified Volvo

service technician and have the brake

system inspected.

If the 

 and 

 symbols

are on at the same time, there is a risk

of reduced vehicle stability.

Warning symbol

The red warning symbol lights up to indicate

a problem related to safety and/or drivability.

A message will also appear in the instrument

panel. The symbol remains visible until the

fault has been rectified but the text message

can be cleared with the OK button, see Infor-

mation display – menu controls (p. 96). The

warning symbol can also come on in conjunc-

tion with other symbols.
Action:
1. Stop in a safe place. Do not drive the

vehicle further.

2. Read the information on the display.

Implement the action in accordance with

the message in the display. Clear the

message using OK.
