The Volvo 850 is a compact four-door sedan that is Swedish engineered. When there is an issue evident with the Volvo’s airbag system, the SRS light, also known as the airbag light, will turn on at the Volvo’s dashboard. To turn off the light, it must be reset using a reset tool. The Service Light Plus airbag reset tool can be bought at most auto parts shops, and it is made to work on the Volvo 850.
