Default 2016 Volvo XC70 in Crash Mode?

I've had a little accident in my XC70 and mounted a kerb at speed due to swerving to avoid an accident when I mounted the kerb the car shut of, the front wheel has popped the tyre I swapped the tyre for the spare and then tried to start the car but it appears its stuck in crash mode showing a red warning triangle and wont start. I looked everywhere for the fuel cut of switch thinking it might of triggered but I can't find one but after a bit of googling it appears that I need to reset crash mode on a diagnostic machine to allow the fuel pump to work again? Is VIDA Dice capable of doing this on a 2016 XC70 D5? As I can't find any information with regards to what year vehicles it works on? No airbags have deployed so unsure why it wont let me start the engine. Any help much appreciated.

your vida will only work up to 2015 models , yes it needs resetting by a dealer with the latest vida.. he will check the car over for damage of course , that is the point of the exercise so a tow job I guess...

Hi thanks for that wasn't sure what year the diagnostics went up to would another diagnostics machine such as a snap on be able to reset it that my local garage has? Just trying to avoid the main dealer as think it's going to cost me a fortune for a simple reset.

Is it set in stone that it only works up to 2015? As just wondering since it is just the reg as the car it's self is the same as a 2015 but registered march 2016 and then they where discontinued would it still work?

It goes by model year , only 2015 will be recognised not 2016 model year .
It is highly likely nothing else will reset the crash sensor , because it is designed to stay on until the car is checked over by a volvo workshop then they would reset the crash sensor . They should not charge more than 18 minutes labour to reset it ...

That's smacks of being a bit naughty... restrictive practice and all that... thought that was illegal...its probably not, but then what prevents a manufacturer in the future disabling a vehicle because they "the dealer network" have not serviced it, and only they have the hardware/software to allow the car to be started???

Cheers

Really? If you have had an accident harsh enough to deploy the safety systems don't you think it right that the car is checked over to prevent killing someone else on the road by a wheel falling off for example ?
This has always been the case with volvo that the system has to be reset , It must be the case with other manufacturers too , I daresay its a law ..

I have no objection to the car being check over to make sure its safe, just the assertion that the ONLY people who are capable of doing said task work at a Volvo franchise, as they are the only people with equipment that will allow the car to move again - no choice...hence my original comment "..it smacks of being a bit naughty.."
