Shiftlock

When your car is parked, the gear selector is locked in the (P)ark position. To release the selector from this position, turn the ignition key to position II (or start the engine), depress the brake pedal, press the button on the front side of the gear selector and move the selector from (P)ark.

Keylock

This means that when you switch off the ignition, the gear selector must be in the (P)ark position before the key can be removed from the ignition switch.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

The ABS system in your car performs a self-diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.

Fuel tank cover The fuel tank cover, located on the right rear fender, is connected to your car's central locking system. The driver's door must be unlocked before the fuel tank cover can be opened.

Fuel filler cap

After refueling, close the fuel filler cap by turning it clockwise until it clicks into place If this cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp ("Check Engine" light) may indicate a fault.

Important

Before you operate your car for the first time, please familiarize yourself with the BREAK-IN information on page 62. You should also be familiar with the information in the first three chapters of this manual.

Information contained in the balance of the manual is extremely useful and should be read after operating the vehicle for the first time.

The manual is structured so that it can be used for reference. For this reason, it should be kept in the car for ready access.

Do not export your Volvo to another country before investigating that country's applicable safety and exhaust emission requirements. In some cases it may be difficult or impossible to comply with

these requirements. Modifications to the emission control system(s) may render your Volvo not certifiable for legal operation in the U.S., Canada and other countries.

All information, illustrations and specifications contained in this manual are based on the latest product information available at the time of publication. Please note that some vehicles may be equipped differently, depending on special legal requirments and that optional equipment described in this manual may not be available in all markets.

Volvo reserves the right to make model changes at any time, or to change specifications or design, without notice and without incurring obligation.

Volvo and the environment

Volvo is committed to the well being of our customers. As a natural part of this commitment, we care about the environment in which we all live. Caring for the environment means an everyday involvement in reducing our environmental impact.

Volvo's environmental activities are based on a holistic view, which means we consider the overall environmental impact of a product throughout its complete life cycle. In this context, design, production, product use, and recycling are all important considerations.

In production, Volvo has partly or completely phased out several chemicals including freons, lead chromates, naphtanates, asbestos, mercury and cadmium; and reduced the amount of chemicals used in our plants 50% since 1991.

In use, Volvo was the first in the world to introduce into production a three-way catalytic converter with a Lambda sond, now called oxygen sensor, in 1976. The current version of this highly efficient system reduces emissions of harmful substances (CO, HC, NOx) from the exhaust pipe by approximately 95% and the search to eliminate the remaining emissions continues. Volvo is the only automobile manufacturer to offer CFC-free retrofit kits for the air conditioning system for all models as far back as the M/Y 1975 240. Advanced electronic engine controls, refined purification systems and cleaner fuels are bringing us closer to our goal.

After Volvo cars and parts have fulfilled their use, recycling is the next critical step in completing the life cycle. The metal content is about 75% of the total weight of a car, which makes the car among the most recycled industrial products. In order to have efficient and well controlled recycling, many Volvo variants have printed dismantling manuals, indicating the weight and material of individual components. For Volvo, all homogeneous plastic parts weighing more than 1.7 oz. (50 grams) are marked with international symbols that indicate how the component is to be sorted for recycling.

In addition to continuous environmental refinement of conventional gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, Volvo is actively looking at advanced technology alternative-fuel vehicles.

Chapter 1 - Safety

pg. 1 Safety

Not wearing a seat belt is like believing "It'll never happen to me!" Volvo, the inventor of the three-point seat belt, urges you and all adult occupants of your car to wear seat belts and ensure that children are properly restrained, using an infant, car or booster seat determined by age, weight and height. Volvo also believes no child should sit in the front seat of a car.

Fact: In every state and province, some type of child-restraint legislation has been passed. Additionally, most states and provinces have already made it mandatory for occupants of a car to use seat belts.

So, urging you to "buckle up" is not just our recommendation - legislation in your state or province may mandate seat belt usage. The few seconds it takes to buckle up may one day allow you to say, "It's a good thing I was wearing my seat belt."

Seat belts

Always fasten the seat belts before you drive or ride. A chime will sound several times if the driver has not fastened his seat belt.

To buckle:

Pull the belt out far enough to insert the latch plate into the receptacle until a distinct click is heard. The seat belt retractor is normally "unlocked" and you can move freely, provided that the shoulder belt is not pulled out too far. The retractor will lock up as follows:

·if the belt is pulled out rapidly

·during braking and acceleration

·if the vehicle is leaning excessively

·when driving in turns

For the seat belt to provide maximum protection in the event of an accident, it must be worn correctly. When wearing the seat belt remember:

·The belt should not be twisted or turned.

·The lap belt must be positioned low on the hips (not pressing against the abdomen).

Make sure that the shoulder belt is rolled up into its retractor and that the shoulder and lap belts are taut.

Before exiting the car, check that the seat belt retracts fully after being unbuckled. If necessary, guide the belt back into the retractor slot.

NOTE: Legislation in your state or province may mandate seat belt usage.

Lap portion of the belt should sit low

Child seats: Please refer to page 14 for information on securing child seats with the seat belts.

During pregnancy Pregnant women should always wear seat belts. Remember that the belt should always be positioned in such a way as to avoid any possible pressure on the abdomen. The lap portion of the belt should be located low, as shown in the above illustration.

2001 Volvo S80

WARNING!

·Never use a seat belt for more than one occupant.

·Never wear the shoulder portion of the belt under the arm, behind the back or otherwise out of position. Such use could cause injury in the event of an accident.

·As the seat belts lose much of their strength when exposed to violent stretching, they should be replaced after any collision, even if they appear to be undamaged.

·Never repair the belt on your own; have this work done by an authorized Volvo retailer only.

·Any device used to induce slack into the shoulder belt portion of the three-point belt system will have a detrimental effect on the amount of protection available to you in the event of a collision.

·The seat back should not be tilted too far back. The shoulder belt must be taut in order to function properly.

·Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also recommend that children who have outgrown these devices sit in the rear seat with the seat belt properly fastened.

Adjust head restraint height

Center head restraint

The center head restraint can be adjusted according to the passenger's height. The restraint should be

carefully adjusted to support the occupant's head.

The head restraint can be raised by pulling straight up or lowered by pressing the catch at the base of the left head restraint support and pushing down.

pg. 4 Front airbags - SRS

As an enhancement to the three-point seat belt system, your Volvo is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). The Volvo SRS consists of an airbag (2) on both the driver's and passenger's sides and seat belt tensioners in both front door pillars (4). The system is designed to supplement the protection provided by the three-point seat belt system. All three rear seat belts are also equipped with tensioners.

The SRS system is indicated by the "SRS" embossed on the steering wheel pad and above the glove compartment, and by decals on both sun visors and on the far right side of the dash.

The airbags are folded and located in the steering wheel hub and above the glove compartment. They are designed to deploy during certain frontal or front-angular collisions, impacts, or decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and object impacted. The airbags may also deploy in certain non-frontal collisions where rapid deceleration occurs.

The airbag system includes gas generators (1) surrounded by the airbags (2) and front seat belt tensioners for both of the front seats (4). To deploy the system, the sensor (3) activates the gas generators causing the airbags to be inflated with nitrogen gas. As the movement of the seats' occupants compresses the airbags, some of the gas is expelled at a controlled rate to provide better cushioning. Both seat belt tensioners also deploy, minimizing any seat belt slack.

file:///K|/ownersdocs/2001/2001_S80/01s80_01a.htm (5 of 14)12/30/2006 3:48:12 PM

2001 Volvo S80

The entire process, including inflation and deflation of the airbags, takes approximately two-tenths of a second.

WARNING!

·As its name implies, SRS is designed to be a SUPPLEMENT to - not a replacement for - the threepoint belt system. For maximum protection, wear seat belts at all times. Be aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that may occur in an accident.

·When installing any optional equipment, make sure that the SRS system is not damaged. Do not attempt to service any component of the SRS yourself. Attempting to do so may result in serious personal injury. If a problem arises, take your car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for inspection as soon as possible.

pg. 5 Front airbags - SRS

A self-diagnostic system incorporated in the sensor monitors the SRS, SIPS and IC-system. This system does not, however, monitor the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags. If a fault is detected, the warning light will illuminate. The light is included in the warning/indicator light cluster in the

instrument panel. Normally, the SRS warning lamp should light up when the ignition key is turned to positions I, II or III and should go out after 7 seconds or when the engine is started. Check that this light is functioning properly every time the car is started.

The following items are monitored by the self-diagnostic system:

·Sensor unit

·SRS wiring

·Inflators

WARNING!

·Never drive an SRS equipped car with your hands on the steering wheel pad / airbag housing.

·No objects, accessory equipment or stickers may be placed on, attached to or installed near the SRS cover in the center of the steering wheel, the SRS cover above the glove compartment or the area affected by airbag deployment.

·If the SRS warning light stays on after the engine has started or if it comes on while you are driving, drive the car to the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for inspection as soon as possible.

There is no maintenance to perform on the SRS yourself. The month and year shown on the decal on the door pillar indicate when you should contact your Volvo retailer for specific servicing or replacement of airbags and seatbelt tensioners. This service must be performed by an authorized Volvo retailer.

Should you have any questions about the SRS system, please contact

your authorized Volvo retailer or Volvo Customer Support:

WARNING!

Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also recommend that children under 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) in height who have outgrown these devices sit in the rear seat with the seat belt fastened.

NOTE: Deployment of SRS components occurs only one time during an accident. In a collision where deployment occurs, the air bags and seat belt tensioners activate. Some noise occurs and a small amount of powder is released. The release of the powder may appear as smoke-like matter. This is a normal characteristic and does not indicate fire.

NOTE: Volvo's dual-threshold air bags use special sensors that are integrated with the front seat buckles. The point at which the air bag deploys is determined by whether or not the seat belt is being used, as well as, the severity of the collision. Collisions can occur where only one of the airbags deploys.

NOTE: Volvo's dual-stage airbags: If the impact is less severe, but severe enough to present a clear injury risk, the dual-stage airbags are triggered at just 70% of its total capacity. If the impact is more severe, the dual-stage airbags are triggered with full capacity.

WARNING!

·Children must never be allowed in the front passenger seat. Volvo recommends that ALL occupants (adults and children) shorter than 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) be seated in the back seat of any vehicle with a front passenger side airbag.

·Occupants in the front passenger's seat must never sit on the edge of the seat, sit leaning toward the instrument panel or otherwise sit out of position. The occupant's back must be as upright as comfort allows and be against the seat back with the seat belt properly fastened.

·Feet must be on the floor, e.g. not on the dash, seat or out of the window.

·No objects or accessory equipment, e.g. dash covers, may be placed on, attached to or installed near the SRS hatch (the area above the glove compartment) or the area affected by airbag deployment (see illustration).

·There should be no loose articles, e.g. coffee cups, on the floor, seat or dash area.

·Never try to open the SRS cover on the steering wheel or the passenger side SRS seam. This should only be done by an authorized Volvo service technician.

·Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants in an accident.

pg. 7 Front airbags - SRS

NOTE: The information on this page does not pertain to the Side Impact Protection System airbags.

When are the airbags deployed?

The SRS system is designed to deploy during certain frontal or frontangular collisions, impacts, or decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and object impacted. The SRS sensor is designed to react to both the impact of the collision and the inertial forces generated by it and to determine if the intensity of the collision is sufficient for the airbags to be deployed.

WARNING!

The SRS is designed to help prevent serious injury. Deployment occurs very quickly and with considerable force. During normal deployment and depending on variables such as seating position, one may experience abrasions, bruises, swellings, or other injuries as a result of airbag(s) deployment.

If the airbags have been deployed, we recommend the following:

·Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer. Never drive with the airbags deployed.

·Have an authorized Volvo retailer replace the SRS system components.

·Use only new, Genuine Volvo Parts when replacing SRS components (airbags, seat belts, tensioners, etc.).

When are the airbags NOT deployed? Not all frontal collisions activate the SRS system. If the collision involves a nonrigid object (e.g., a snow drift or bush), or a rigid, fixed object at a low speed, the SRS system will not necessarily deploy. Front airbags do not normally deploy in a side impact collision, in a collision from the rear or in a rollover situation. The amount of damage to the bodywork does not reliably indicate if the airbags should have deployed or not.

Seat belts the heart of the Volvo safety system The heart of the Volvo safety system is the threepoint seat belt (a Volvo invention)! In order for the SRS system to provide the protection intended, seat belts must be worn at all times by everyone in the car. The SRS system is a supplement to the seat belts.

2001 Volvo S80

WARNING!

If your car has been subjected to flood conditions (e.g. soaked carpeting/standing water on the floor of the vehicle) or if your car has become flooddamaged in any way, do not attempt to start the vehicle or put the key in the ignition before disconnecting the battery (see below). This may cause airbag deployment which could result in personal injury. Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer for repairs.

Automatic transmission:

Before attempting to tow the car, use the following procedure to override the shiftlock system to move the gear selector to the neutral position.

·Switch off the ignition for at least 10 minutes and disconnect the battery

·Wait at least one minute

·Insert the key in the ignition and turn it to position II

·Press firmly on the brake pedal.

·Move the gear selector from (P)ark to the (N)eutral position.

WARNING!

Never drive with the airbags deployed. The fact that they hang out can impair the steering of your car. Other safety systems can also be damaged. The smoke and dust formed when the airbags are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation in the event of prolonged exposure.

pg. 8 Side impact airbags (SIPS)

file:///K|/ownersdocs/2001/2001_S80/01s80_01a.htm (11 of 14)12/30/2006 3:48:12 PM

2001 Volvo S80

SIPS airbag (front seats only)

As an enhancement to the structural Side Impact Protection System built into your car, the car is also equipped with Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags. The SIPS airbag system consists of airbag modules built into the sides of both front seat backrests (1), wires (2) and gas generators/sensor units (3).

The SIPS airbag system is designed to help increase occupant protection in the event of certain side impact collisions. The SIPS airbags are designed to deploy only during certain sideimpact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and point of impact. The airbags are not designed to deploy in all side impact situations.

NOTE: SIPS airbag deployment (one airbag) occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the impact.

WARNING!

·The SIPS airbag system is a supplement to the Side Impact Protection System and the threepoint seat belt system. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the front or rear of the car or in rollover situations.

·The use of seat covers on the front seats may impede SIPS airbag deployment.

·No objects, accessory equipment or stickers may be placed on, attached to or installed near, the SIPS airbag system or in the area affected by SIPS airbag deployment (see illustration to the right above). Never try to open or repair any components of the SIPS airbag system. This should only be done by an authorized Volvo service technician.

·In order for the SIPS airbag to provide its best protection, both front seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened.

This may cause airbag deployment which could result in personal injury. Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer for repairs.

*A SIPS airbag warning decal is also located at the end of the instrument panel on the driver's side of the car.

pg. 9 Volvo Inflatable curtain (VIC)

Volvo Inflatable curtain (VIC) This system consists of inflatable curtains located along the sides of the roof liners, stretching from the center of both front side windows to the rear edge of the rear side windows. It is designed to help protect the heads of the occupant of the front seat and the occupant of the outboard rear seat position in certain side impact collisions.

2001 Volvo S80

NOTE: IC system deployment occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the impact.

In certain side impacts, BOTH the Inflatable Curtain (IC) and the Side Impact Airbag System (SIPSbag) will deploy, whereas, in some cases, ONLY the Inflatable Curtain (IC) will deploy. In cases where BOTH the IC and the SIPS-bag deploy, deployment will occur simultaneously.

If the inflatable curtain deploys, it remains inflated for approximately 3 seconds.

WARNING!

·The IC system is a supplement to the Side Impact Protection System. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the front or rear of the car or in most rollover situations.

·Never try to open or repair any components of the IC system. This should only be done by an authorized Volvo service technician.

·The inflatable curtains are designed to deploy only during certain sideimpact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and impact. The inflatable curtains are not designed to deploy in all side impact situations.

·For best protection from the IC, both front seat occupants and both outboard rear seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened; adults using the seat belt and children using the proper child restraint system. Only adults should sit in the front seats. Children must never be allowed in the front passenger seat. See page 14 for guidelines. Failure to follow these

instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants in an accident.

pg. 10 Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)

Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) - front seats only

The WHIPS system consists of specially designed hinges and brackets on the front seat backrests and head restraints designed to help absorb some of the energy generated in a collision from the rear ("rearended").

In the event of a collision of this type, the hinges and brackets of the front seat backrests are designed to change position slightly to allow the backrest/head restraint to help support the occupant's head before moving slightly rearward. This movement helps absorb some of the forces that could result in the whiplash effect.

Do not wedge boxes, suitcases, etc. behind front seats

2001 Volvo S80

WARNING!

·Any contact between the front seat backrests and the folded rear seat could impede the function of the WHIPS system. If the rear seat is folded down, the occupied front seats must be adjusted forward so that they do not touch the folded rear seat.

·Boxes, suitcases, etc. wedged behind the front seats (see illustration above) could impede the function of the WHIPS system.

·The WHIPS system is designed to supplement the other safety systems in your car. For this system to function properly, the three-point seat belt must be worn. Please be aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that may occur in an accident.

·If your car has been involved in a collision, the front seat backrests must be inspected by an authorized Volvo retailer even if the seats appear to be undamaged. Certain components in the WHIPS system may need to be replaced. Do not attempt to service any component in the WHIPS system yourself.

·If the rear seat backrests are folded down, cargo must be secured to prevent it from sliding forward against the front seat backrests in the event of a collision from the rear. This could interfere with the action of the WHIPS system.

·The WHIPS system is designed to function in certain collisions from the rear, depending on the crash severity, angle and speed.

·Occupants in the front seats must never sit out of position. The occupant's back must be as upright as comfort allows and be against the seat back with the seat belt properly fastened.

pg. 11 Occupant safety

Seat belt maintenance Check periodically that the seat belts are in good condition. Use water and a mild detergent for cleaning. Check seat belt mechanism function as follows: Attach the seat belt and pull rapidly on the strap.

Volvo Concern for Safety Safety is the cornerstone for Volvo. Our concern dates back to 1927 when the first Volvo rolled off the production line. Threepoint seat belts (a Volvo invention), safety cages, and energyabsorbing impact zones were designed into Volvo cars long before it was fashionable or required by government regulation. We will not compromise our commitment to safety. We continue to seek out new safety features and to refine those already in our cars. You can help. We would appreciate hearing your suggestions about improving automobile safety. We also want to know if you ever have a safety concern with your car. Call us in the U.S. at: 8004581552 or in Canada at: 8006638255.

Occupant safety How safely you drive doesn't depend on how old you are but rather on:

Reporting Safety Defects in the U.S.

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Volvo Cars of North America. If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your retailer, or Volvo Cars of North America. To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline tollfree at 18004249393 (or 202-3660123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the Hotline.

Volvo strongly recommends that if your vehicle is covered under a service campaign, safety or emission recall or similar action, it should be completed as soon as possible. Please check with your local retailer or Volvo Cars of North America, Inc. if your vehicle is covered under these conditions.

Child restraint anchorages

Volvo cars are or can be fitted with child restraint top tether anchorages in the rear seat.

There are three predrilled anchorage points in the rear window shelf.

Installing the top tether

The predrilled holes for the child restraint anchorages are underneath the rear window shelf. A slot must be cut in the fabric on the shelf to install the anchorage bracket. This installation should be carried out by an authorized Volvo retailer.

Refer to the child seat manufacturer's instructions for information on securing the child seat.

Isofix fasteners and Seat guide

The Isofix fasteners are available as a retailer-installed option in the rear seat on the outboard positions. Consult your Volvo retailer for more information on child safety accessories.

WARNING!

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 harness 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 suffering severe injuries should a collision occur. Do not install rear speakers which would require the removal of the top tether anchors or interfere with the proper use of the top tether strap.

Integrated booster cushion

Integrated booster cushion (optional)

Volvo's own integrated booster cushion has been specially designed to help safeguard a child seated in the center position of the rear seat. When using the integrated booster cushion, the child must be secured with the vehicle's threepoint seat belt. The booster cushion is approved for children weighing between 33 and 80 lbs (15 and 36 kg) and between 38 and 54 in (97 and 137 cm) in height.

The child should be properly seated on the booster cushion (see illustration in left column). It is essential that the head restraint be adjusted properly to help support the child's head (see page 3).

The hip section of the threepoint seat belt must fit snugly across the child's hips, not across the stomach. The shoulder section of the threepoint seat belt should be positioned across the chest and shoulder (see illustration). The shoulder belt must never be placed behind the child's back or under the arm.

WARNING!

Failure to follow the instructions on this page will increase the risk of your child being injured during a sudden stop or collision. In the event of a collision while the integrated booster cushion was occupied, the entire booster cushion and center seat belt must be replaced. The booster cushion should also be replaced if it is badly worn or damaged in any way. This work should be performed by an authorized Volvo retailer only. The booster cushion should be cleaned while in place in the vehicle if possible. If not, please consult your Volvo retailer.

Storing the booster cushion

Fold the seat up - it will lock automatically to the backrest.

NOTE: Please also refer to the instructions on the integrated booster cushion.

pg. 14 Child safety

Keeping child seats in place (ALR/ELR*)

To make child seat installation easier, each seat belt (except for the driver's belt) is equipped with a locking mechanism to help keep the seat belt taut.

When attaching the seat belt to a child seat: · Attach the seat belt to the child seat according to the child seat manufacturer's instructions.

·Pull the seat belt out as far as possible.

·Insert the seat belt latch plate into the buckle (lock) in the usual way.

·Release the seat belt and pull it taut around the child seat.

A sound from the seat belt retractor will be audible at this time and is normal.

The belt will now be locked in place.

This function is automatically disabled when the seat belt is unlocked and the belt is fully retracted.

WARNING!

Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also recommend that children who have outgrown these devices sit in the rear seat with the seat belt properly fastened.

Important!

Why Volvo believes no child should sit in the front seat of a car.

It's quite simple really. A front air bag is a very powerful device designed, by law, to help protect an adult. Because of the size of the air bag and its speed of inflation, a child should never be placed in the front seat, even if he or she is properly belted or strapped into a child safety seat. Volvo has been an innovator in safety for over fifty years, and we'll continue to do our part. But we need your help. Please remember to put your children in the back seat, and buckle them up.

Volvo has some very specific recommendations:

·Always wear your seat belt.

·Air bags are a SUPPLEMENTAL safety device which, when used with a three-point seat belt can help

reduce serious injuries during certain types of accidents. Volvo recommends that you do not disconnect the air bag system in your vehicle.

·Volvo strongly recommends that ALL children sit in the rear seat of any vehicle and that they be properly restrained.

·A child should NEVER sit in the front passenger seat of any vehicle equipped with a front passenger side airbag.

·Volvo recommends that ALL occupants (adults and children) shorter than four feet seven inches (140 cm) be seated in the back seat of any vehicle with a front passenger side airbag.

Drive safely!

pg. 15 Child safety

Child safety

Volvo recommends the proper use of restraint systems for all occupants including children. Remember that, regardless of age and size, a child should always be properly restrained in a car.

Restraint systems for children are designed to be secured in the vehicle by lap belts or the lap portion of a lapshoulder belt. Such child restraint systems can help protect children in cars in the event of an accident only if they are used properly. However, children could be endangered in a crash if the child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Failure to follow the installation instructions for your child restraint can result in your child striking the vehicle's interior in a sudden stop.

Holding a child in your arms is NOT a suitable substitute for a child restraint system. In an accident, a child held in a person's arms can be crushed between the vehicle's interior and an unrestrained person. The child could also be injured by striking the interior, or by being ejected from the vehicle during a sudden maneuver or impact. The same can also happen if the infant or child rides unrestrained on the seat. Other occupants should also be properly restrained to help reduce the chance of injuring or increasing the injury of a child.

All states and provinces have legislation governing how and where children should be carried in a car. Find out the regulations existing in your state or province. Recent accident statistics have shown that children are safer in rear seating positions than front seating positions when properly restrained. A child restraint system can help protect a child in a vehicle. Here's what to look for when selecting a child restraint system:

·It should have a label certifying that it meets applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS 213) or in Canada, CMVSS 213.

·Make sure the child restraint system is approved for the child's height, weight and development the

file:///K|/ownersdocs/2001/2001_S80/01s80_01b.htm (8 of 14)12/30/2006 3:48:13 PM

2001 Volvo S80

label required by the standard or regulation, or instructions for infant restraints, typically provide this information.

·In using any child restraint system, we urge you to look carefully over the instructions that are provided with the restraint. Be sure you understand them and can use the device properly and safely in this vehicle. A misused child restraint system can result in increased injuries for both the infant or child and other occupants in the vehicle.

·If your child restraint requires a top tether strap, consult your authorized Volvo retailer for top tether anchorage and installation information.

When a child has outgrown the child safety seat, you should use the rear seat with the standard seat belt fastened. The best way to help protect the child here is to place the child on a cushion so that the seat belt is properly

located on the hips (see page 2).

A specially designed and tested booster cushion (not available in Canada ) for children between the age of 3 and approximately 10 years, weighing 33 - 80 lbs (15 - 36 kg) and 46 - 54" (117 - 137 cm) in height, can be obtained from your Volvo retailer.

WARNING!

Do not use child safety seats or child booster cushions/backrests in the front passenger's seat. We also recommend that children under 4 feet 7 inches (140 cm) in height who have outgrown these devices sit in the rear seat with the seat belt fastened.

WARNING!

Keep vehicle doors and trunk locked and keep keys out of a child's reach. Unsupervised children could lock themselves in an open trunk and risk injury. Children should be taught not to play in vehicles.

WARNING!

On hot days, the temperature in the trunk or vehicle interior can rise very quickly. Exposure of people to these high tempera-tures for even a short period of time can cause heat-related injury or death. Small children are particularly at risk.

pg. 16 Brake system

Brake circuit malfunction

If one of the brake circuits should malfunction, the red warning light will come on, the pedal stroke increases slightly, the pedal feels softer and extra pressure is required for normal braking. If the light comes on while driving or braking, stop immediately and check the brake fluid level in the reservoir.

WARNING!

If the fluid level is below the MIN mark in the reservoir: DO NOT DRIVE. Tow the car to a Volvo retailer and have the brake system checked and any leakage repaired.

NOTE: When the car is at a standstill and the engine is idling, e.g. at a traffic light and the brake pedal is depressed, the pedal may go down slightly. This is a normal function of the power-assisted brake system.

If the brake powerassist does not function

The power assist to the brakes functions only when the engine is running. When the car is moving without the engine running, the brake pedal pressure required to stop the car is increased by 34 times and the brake pedal feels stiff.

Moisture on brake discs and brake pads affects braking

Driving in rain and slush or passing through an automatic car wash can cause water to collect on the brake discs and pads. This will cause a delay in braking effect when the pedal is depressed. To avoid such a delay when the brakes are needed, depress the pedal occasionally when driving through rain, slush etc. This will remove the water from the brakes. Check that brake application feels normal. This should also be done after washing or starting in very damp or cold weather.

Severe strain on the brake system

The brakes will be subject to severe strain when driving in mountains or hilly areas or towing. The speed is usually low which means that the cooling of the brakes is less efficient than when driving on level roads. To reduce the strain on the brakes, it is advisable not to use the brakes excessively. Instead, shift into a lower gear and let the engine help with the braking. Do not forget that, if you are towing a trailer,

file:///K|/ownersdocs/2001/2001_S80/01s80_01b.htm (10 of 14)12/30/2006 3:48:13 PM

2001 Volvo S80

the brakes will be subjected to greater load than is normal.

pg. 17 ANTI-lock Brake System (ABS)

ANTI-lock Brake System (ABS) If the warning lamp lights up there is a malfunction of the ABS system (the standard braking system will however function) and the vehicle should be driven cautiously to a Volvo retailer for inspection. The ANTI-lock Braking System (ABS) helps to improve vehicle control (stopping and steering) during severe braking conditions by limiting brake lockup. When the system "senses" impending lockup, braking pressure is automatically modulated in order to help prevent lockup, which could lead to a skid.

The system performs a self-diagnostic test when the engine is started and when the vehicle first reaches a speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.

To obtain optimal effect from the ABS system, constant pressure should be kept on the brake, keep constant pressure on the brake pedal. Do not pump the brake pedal.

The switching of the ABS modulator will be audible and the brake pedal will pulsate at this time. Please be aware that ABS does not increase the absolute braking potential of the vehicle. While control will be enhanced, ABS will not shorten stopping distances on slippery surfaces.

ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution)

EBD is an integrated part of the ABS system. EBD regulates the hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes to help provide optimal braking capacity.

If the BRAKE and ABS warning lights come on at the same time, this could indicate a fault in the brake system.

·Stop the car in a suitable place and switch off the engine.

·Restart the engine.

·If both warning lights go off, no further action is required.

·If both lights are still on after the engine has been restarted, switch off the engine again and check the brake fluid level (see page 116 for the location of the brake fluid reservoir).

2001 Volvo S80

WARNING!

If the fluid level is below the MIN mark in the reservoir, DO NOT DRIVE. Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer and have the brake system inspected.

· If the brake fluid level is above the MIN mark, drive carefully to an authorized Volvo retailer and have the brake system inspected.

pg. 18 (Dynamic) Stability Traction Control (STC) (DSTC) - option

Stability Traction Control (STC)

The STC system is designed to help reduce wheel spin by limiting power to the drive wheels if they begin to lose traction. At speeds over 25 mph (40 km/h), the STC system monitors and compares all four wheels. If one of the drive (front) wheels shows any tendency to slip, such as when driving on slippery roads, the difference in speed is immediately detected. This triggers a signal to the engine management system, which will reduce engine torque (by reducing fuel) until the differential is corrected. This torque reduction is handled in stages, and reaction time is extremely fast. The system can be switched on or off by pressing the button on the center console for at least half a second (see page 27). The indicator light (

) in the instrument panel will be ON when you have switched the system off. The STC system comes on each time you start your car.

The STC indicator light () will come on for approximately 2 seconds when the engine is started as the system performs a self-diagnostic test.

This system should be switched off if you, for any reason, temporarily have to drive with tires of different dimensions (e.g., spare tire).

The symbol will flash when STC is actively regulating power to the drive wheels. Normal power may be reduced at this time. This is normal as power is momentarily reduced to help keep the drive wheels from losing traction and spinning.

If the STC system has been switched on using the button in the center console (the indicator light will normally go off) and the indicator light remains on, there is a fault in the system. In this case:

·Stop the car in a suitable place and switch off the engine.

·Restart the engine.

·If the indicator light goes off, no further action is required.

file:///K|/ownersdocs/2001/2001_S80/01s80_01b.htm (12 of 14)12/30/2006 3:48:13 PM

2001 Volvo S80

· If the light remains on, have the STC system inspected by an authorized Volvo retailer.

Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC)

The DSTC system performs all of the functions of the STC system. In addition, DSTC also applies the brakes to one or more of the wheels to help maintain stability if a wheel begins to lose traction. The system functions at speeds above 12 mph (20 km/h) and works on all four wheels, on any road surface. When DSTC is active, brake pressure is regulated automatically and the brake pedal will move slightly. If you press the brake pedal while DSTC is automatically regulating brake pressure, it will feel stiffer than normal. A pulsating sound will be audible at this time, which is quite normal.

Switching off DSTC

DSTC comes on each time you start your car, and should be left on at all times. If for any reason the steering wheel position or the front wheels are not properly aligned, DSTC should be switched off since the system may receive incorrect signals.

When the LED in the button is on, this indicates that DSTC is switched on (the light will also come on if a fault has been detected in the system). To avoid inadvertently switching the system off, the button must be pressed for at least one second before DSTC is deactivated.

The symbol will come on to indicate that DSTC has been switched off. The system is automatically switched on when the engine is restarted.

The DSTC indicator light () will flash when:

DSTC is actively functioning to help avoid loss of traction.

The DSTC indicator light () will stay on when:

The car is started (for approximately 2 seconds as DSTC performs a self-diagnostic test).

DSTC has been switched off by pressing the DSTC button in the middle console.

DSTC has been temporarily switched off due to high brake temperature. The system will automatically switch on again when the brakes have cooled.

If the system has been switched off due to a fault. An authorized Volvo retailer should check the system.

NOTE ENGINE OIL:

Although some oil consumption occurs during normal engine operation, more oil is consumed when the engine is new as the internal parts generate higher friction while wearingin to each other. From the time the engine is new until the first service is performed, the oil consumption could be higher than normal. For this reason, it is especially important to check the oil every time you refuel your car during this period. See page 115.

Fuel requirements

Octane rating

Volvo engines are designed for optimum performance on unleaded premium gasoline with an octane rating. AKI of 91, or above. AKI (ANTI KNOCK INDEX) is an average of the Research Octane Number, RON, and the Motor Octane Number, MON. (RON + MON/2).

The minimum octane requirement is AKI 87 (RON 91).

Deposit control gasoline (detergent additives)

Volvo recommends the use of gasoline containing deposit control additives. These additives have shown to be efficient in keeping injectors and intake valves clean. Consistent use of deposit control gasolines will help ensure good driveability and fuel economy. If you are not sure whether the gasoline contains deposit control additives, check with the service station operator.

Unleaded fuel

Each Volvo has a three-way catalytic converter and must use only unleaded gasoline. U.S. and Canadian regulations require that pumps delivering unleaded gasoline be labelled "UNLEADED". Only these pumps have nozzles which fit your car's filler inlet. It is unlawful to dispense leaded fuel into a vehicle labelled "unleaded gasoline only". Leaded gasoline damages the three-way catalytic converter and the heated oxygen sensor system. Repeated use of leaded gasoline will lessen the effectiveness of the emission control system and could result in loss of emission warranty coverage. State and local vehicle inspection programs will make detection of misfueling easier, possibly resulting in emission test failure for misfueled vehicles.

NOTE: Some U.S. and Canadian gasolines contain an octane enhancing additive called methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT). If such fuels are used, your Emission Control System performance may be affected, and the Check Engine Light (malfunction indicator lamp) located on your instrument panel may light. If this occurs, please return your vehicle to an authorized Volvo retailer for service.

Gasoline containing alcohol and ethers

"Oxygenated fuels"

Some fuel suppliers sell gasoline containing "oxygenates" which are usually alcohols or ethers. In some areas, state or local laws require that the service pump be marked indicating use of alcohols or ethers. However, there are areas in which the pumps are unmarked. If you are not sure whether there is alcohol or ethers in the gasoline you buy, check with the service station operator. To meet seasonal air quality standards, some areas require the use of "oxygenated" fuel.

Volvo allows the use of the following "oxygenated fuels; however, the octane ratings listed on this page must still be met.

Alcohol — Ethanol: Fuels containing up to 10% ethanol by volume may be used. Ethanol may also be referred to as Ethyl alcohol, or "Gasohol".

Ethers — MTBE: Fuels containing up to 15% MTBE may be used.

pg. 65 Refueling

Refueling

The fuel tank is designed to hold approximately 21.1 US gal. (80 liters) with sufficient volume left over to accommodate possible expansion of the fuel in hot weather. Be aware that the "usable" tank capacity will be somewhat less than the specified maximum. When the fuel level is low, such factors as ambient temperature, the fuel's "Reid vapor pressure" characteristics, and terrain can affect the fuel pumps' ability to supply the engine with an adequate supply of fuel. Therefore, it is advisable to refuel as soon as possible when the needle nears the red zone, or when the fuel warning light comes on.

Fuel filler door

If you lock your car with the key or remote control, the fuel filler door will lock after a 10minute delay. If you intend to leave your car while it is being refueled, this feature enables you to lock the doors/trunk while leaving the fuel filler door unlocked.

You can also keep the car locked if you remain inside it during refueling. The central locking button does not lock the fuel filler door. Be sure the fuel filler door is not obstructed and is completely closed after refueling.

Open the fuel filler cap slowly during hot weather conditions.

NOTE: During a transitional period, a small number of service stations may still have fuel nozzles that are not compatible with the fuel filler neck on cars equipped with the evaporative control system. Please refer to page 109 for additional information.

CAUTION:

·Do not refuel with the engine running *. Turn the ignition off or to position I. If the ignition is on, an incorrect reading could occur in the fuel gauge.

·After refueling, close the fuel filler cap by turning it clockwise until it clicks into place *.

·Allow for fuel expansion by not overfilling the tank. Overfilling could also cause damage to the emission control systems.

·Avoid spilling gasoline during refueling. In addition to causing damage to the environment, gasolines containing alcohol can cause damage to painted surfaces, which may not be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

·Do not use gasolines containing methanol (methyl alcohol, wood alcohol). This practice can result in vehicle performance deterioration and can damage critical parts in the fuel system. Such damage may not be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

* If the fuel filler cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the car is refueled, the Check Engine Light (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) may indicate a fault. However, your vehicle's performance will not be affected. Use only Volvo original or approved fuel filler caps.

WARNING!

Before starting, check that the seat, steering wheel and mirrors are adjusted properly. Make sure the brake pedal can be depressed completely. Adjust the seat if necessary. See page 48.

2. Apply the parking brake, if not already set. The gear selector is locked in the (P)ark position

(SHIFTLOCK).

3. Without touching the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition key* to the starting position. Allow the starter to operate for up to 5 seconds (turbo: 10 seconds). Release the key as soon as the engine starts. If the engine fails to start, repeat this step.

For cold starts at altitudes above 6000 ft (1800 meters), depress the accelerator pedal halfway and turn the key to the starting position. Release the pedal slowly when the engine starts.

4.To release the gear selector from the (P)ark position, the engine must be running (or the ignition key must be in position II) and the brake pedal must be depressed.

5.Select the desired gear. The gear engages after a very slight delay which is especially noticeable when selecting R.

NOTE:

·Your car is equipped with a KEYLOCK system. When the engine is switched off, the gear selector must be in the (P)ark position before the key can be removed from the ignition switch.

·When starting in cold weather, the transmission may shift up at slightly higher engine speeds than normal until the automatic transmission fluid reaches normal operating temperature.

CAUTION:

·The engine should be idling when you move the gear selector. Never accelerate until after you feel the transmission engage! Accelerating immediately after selecting a gear will cause harsh gear engagement and premature transmission wear.

·Selecting P or N when idling at a standstill for prolonged periods of time will help prevent overheating of the automatic transmission fluid.

·Do not race a cold engine immediately after starting. Oil flow may not reach some lubrication points fast enough to prevent engine damage.
