Driving after a collision  - Crash mode - Safety - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

If the vehicle has been involved in a collision, the text Safety mode See manual may appear in the information display. This indicates that the vehicle's functionality has been reduced.

NOTE
This text can only be shown if the display is undamaged and the vehicle's electrical system is intact.

Safety mode is a feature that is triggered if one or more of the safety systems (e.g. front or side airbags, an inflatable curtain, or one or more of the seat belt pretensioners) has deployed. The collision may have damaged an important function in the vehicle, such as the fuel lines, sensors for one of the safety systems, the brake system, etc.

Х Restoring the vehicle to normal operating status should only be done by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
Х After Safety mode See manual has been displayed, if you detect the odor of fuel vapor, or see any signs of fuel leakage, do not attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the vehicle immediately.
