2009 Volvo XC70 EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS NHTSA Campaign #10V190000
Summary: Volvo is recalling certain model year 2010 XC70 vehicles manufactured from December 5, 2006 through October 1, 2009 for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 110, "tire selection and rims." The FMVSS label, tire and loading information label and a page in the owner's manual contain incorrect maximum permissible inflation pressure according to FMVSS 110.

2009 Volvo XC70 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: SOFTWARE NHTSA Campaign #09V343000
Summary: Volvo is recalling MY 2008-2010 S80, model year 2009-2010 XC70 and model year 2010 XC60 vehicles. Under certain conditions the software within the central electronic module (cem) may not send a signal to the fuel pump electronic module (pem). This missing signal to the pem inhibits the start of the fuel pump. The driver may be able to start the engine in spite of the fuel pump not being activated due to residual pressure in the fuel system. In some cases, the driver may be able to drive the vehicle a short distance at idle but then the engine may stall.
Consequence: If the vehicle stalls in certain conditions, a crash could occur.
Actions: Dealers will download software to the vehicles' cem free of charge. The recall began on September 30, 2009. Vehicles in dealer's inventory will be repaired prior to delivery. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #09V343000 »

Summary: Volvo is recalling 17,614 MY 2008-2009 S80, V70, and XC70 vehicles. The engine cooling fan may stop working due to a software programming error in the fan control module (FCM).
