Thank you
I know this is an old post but for the benefit of anyone else, if it hasn't already been said, you can buy a USB to serial 9 pin adapter: I use one on another piece of kit called "Tune ECU" that I use for a motorcycle.

Don't know if this thread is still live, but will give it a go anyway. After some recent troubles with my 2000 C70 we have managed to get rid of all the dash warning lights except the SRS light. These are undocumented codes on my mates Snap On diagnostic equipment so are theoretically only readable (and probably therefore) only cancel able by Volvo equipment. Will this device reset this warning light? It doesn't cause any problems but I would like it re set if at all possible, anyone have any ideas that won't cost too much??

Hi

Just seen your very kind offer on the forum.

I've got a Volvo XC90 Diesel 2005 with the SRS light latched on (following me disconnecting it to remove a seat. Now refitted).

Also got an intermittant problem with Turbo/controls, sending into limp mode.

Does your code reader work on the XC90?

I only live in Leeds, so could easy pop over yours either on a weekend or after work during week.

Any help really appreciated, best bet is to Email me on markconnor@ntlworld.com, as I don't come on this forum due to normal reliability of Volvos!!

Cheers
Mark
