The safety systems in a Volvo are designed to interact with each other - and to operate together with certain key components.
It is very important that the replacement, adjustment or repair of these key components is carried out using Volvo Genuine parts as well as the right tools and the right method in order to guarantee the function of the safety systems.

Volvo Genuine Windscreens
Some safety systems are sensitive to optical and geometric tolerances, glass thickness and mass. The City Safety software is configured for every specific windscreen variant. Correct function can only be guaranteed by a windscreen with correct features and tolerances in combination with correct configured software.
It is necessary to calibrate the Forward Sensing Module using our unique diagnostic equipment (VIDA), in order to secure the functionality of Collision Warning with Full Autobrake and Pedestrian Detection, when a windscreen has been replaced.
