2001 V70 2.4T MA Inspection failure due to SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT / codes SRS-00D0, SRS-00D1, CEM-2FA2, CEM-2FA5

Post by prwood » Tue Dec 26, 2017 1:03 pm

As suggested by the title, my Volvo failed its safety inspection due to the presence of the "SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT" message on the dashboard. This message, to the best of my knowledge, was inadvertently set when a fuse was removed without disconnecting the battery. I had previously attempted to read and reset the codes (SRS-00D0, SRS-00D1, CEM-2FA2, CEM-2FA5) using jonesg's VIDA/DiCE setup, but did not do it properly and the codes returned. As such, I believe a proper reset just needs to be performed in order for the airbag to pass inspection.

I have a OBDII code reader/resetter, but this does not handle the SRS and CEM codes mentioned above. I am wondering if anyone from the forum in the Boston or Greater New England area has a VIDA/DiCE diagnostic setup, or an iCarsoft VOLII scanner? I can drive the car to wherever is convenient for you to meet.

Thanks!

Apparently the MA vehicle inspection stations are getting more finicky, and this year I was failed for having the "SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT" message on my DIM, even though the actual airbag MIL was not illuminated. Last year I passed at the same station with the same message, no problem.

Anyone other than abscate have a device that can perform this type of reset, but would be available this week? There is an independent repair shop near me that has said in the past they could reset it for $50, but they're always busy and never able to get me in at a convenient time. I'm guessing the dealer would charge $100+ to do something similar? At that point I'd be better off buying the iCarsoft unit at $150.

I'm not sure what exactly is going on. As best I can tell, the requirements for passing a safety inspection haven't changed since 9/5/2008:

https://static1.squarespace.com/static/ ... R-4.00.pdf

That document has this to say about air bags:
540 CMR 4.04 Procedures for Inspection of Non-Commercial Motor Vehicles wrote: (15) Air Bags. Vehicles so equipped must comply with 49 CFR, Parts 571 through 595. Effective beginning October 1, 2008, the inspector shall check for proper operation of the airbag malfunction indicator lamp. If not operating as designed, or if the lamp indicates a malfunction in the airbag system, or if any airbag originally equipped in the vehicle is deployed or is missing the vehicle shall be rejected.
On my car, the airbag MIL (a red pictogram of a person wearing a seat belt with an airbag deployed) comes on when starting the car and then switches off, indicating correct function of the airbags. Based on that, my conclusion was that it should pass.

However, the DIM textual display on the left of the dash has the "SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT" message. I believe that message is displayed due to codes SRS-00D0 and SRS-00D1 being set (driver+passenger seat belt buckle signal missing). These codes were set erroneously a few years ago when I inadvertently tripped them by removing the wrong fuse when the battery was not disconnected. I attempted to reset them this summer when I had my car hooked up to jonesg's VIDA/DICE setup, but they came back right away. Since then, I found this thread: http://matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/vie ... hp?t=82587 which says that you actually need to set the underlying CEM codes first, THEN the SRS codes, in order to get the message to go away.

On October 1, 2017, MA inspection stations had to start using a new inspection system (Applus+ http://www.applusautomotive.com/en/). From my understanding, the laws and requirements surrounding vehicle inspection haven't actually changed, it's just a new inspection system. This system doesn't change what is actually required for a vehicle to pass, but it is supposed to minimize human error and prevent fraud in the inspection process.

I don't know whether the inspector failed me straight away upon seeing the SRS message in the DIM, or if he actually hooked up the computer and got the failure from that. In any case, I'm considering whether to go back over and chat with him about the result and see exactly what it was that made it fail.

All that being said, if I can get the codes reset for cheap or free, I might as well just do that and avoid the trouble.

I went back to the inspection station and asked for more details. The inspector said that they are trained specifically to look for the "SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT" message on Volvos, and similar messages on Honda and Audi cars, in addition to the standard airbag warning light. He said that it should have failed the inspection last year and the fact that it didn't was the fault of the inspector who handled my car at that time. My guess is that this is true, and that some inspectors who previously would have ignored that message are now fully complying with the regulation due to the additional fraud detection (video monitoring and photo monitoring, facial recognition, etc) that the new inspection system involves. He also said that the computer didn't detect this failure, but that it was based on his visual reading of the dashboard display.

So, that still leaves me needing to get the message reset in order to pass inspection...

SRS-00D0 Rear right side impact sensor. Configuration fault
SRS-00D1 Passenger seat belt buckle. Signal missing. Permanent fault
CEM-2FA2 Driver seatbelt lock. Signal too low. Intermittent fault
CEM-2FA5 Passenger seatbelt lock. Signal too low. Intermittent fault

I would start by cleaning the harness connector of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control unit. Do so with the battery disconnected. What are the odds that much is wrong within the same system. All the sensors hang off the SRS Control unit.

Not all laws on the books are enforced, or at least, not all the time. Sometimes selectively as specific individuals or activities pass a threshold considered 'problematic'. MA wasn't enforcing this one. But for whatever reason they decided to start. Likely due to pressure from the insurance industry. MA authorities were probably given an ultimatum: start enforcing this or vehicle insurance rates for residents within the state will jump. Which would make the vast majority of vehicle owners with properly functional SRS systems unhappy.

They ignore some stuff and make stuff up like the 2krpm on the handbrake test.

when i bought my v70 I tripped the srs by mistake and bought an autel to clear it so I could get a sticker.
Sold the autel and got vida later.
Either way, get something, it's a pain without.
