1995 850 Airbag Sensor or Control Module

Discussion in 'Volvo 850' started by Jerry Phillips, Sep 5, 2005.

  1. I just bought a 1995 Volvo 850 and the SRS light does not light up upon
    turning the ignition on. I had the local Volvo dealership do quite a bit of
    diagnostics. They finally determined the some one had spilled a large coke
    to go on the center console and it some how destroyed the airbag control
    sensor under the hand brake. In later models I think Volvo covered the
    sensor with a liquid proof cover. The Volvo dealership wanted over $1,000
    for the new sensor. I have found one on the internet and thought I would
    give it a try @ about $150.00 and install it myself. I would appreciate any
    advice anyone might have. I know to disconnect the battery ground but I
    wonder if there is anything else I should know. I also wonder if after I
    install the sensor if the SRS light comes on and goes off as it is supposed
    to, then can I be assured that my SRS system will be fully ready for
    deployment if required. After all that is the whole reason for all the
    trouble. Thanks!

    Assuming the rest of the system is OK, then it will work as you suspect.
