Dear customer, the indicator that you present is the important indicator of the engine, it is an indicator that when it normally comes out is because you are having a failure that could mean something serious at the engine level, the problem is to know what happened, I would like to know, if in the first place you have access to diagnostic equipment, this indicator lights up when there is an error code that the computer determines as dangerous for its operation, which can cause the vehicle to enter limp mode and disable the ignition to be able to know this error code. Diagnostic equipment may be required, possibly with Volvo software, to access Volvo manufacturer specific codes.
