2004 Volvo S40 & V40 2 0 0 4 VOLVO S40 & V40 pg. 74 Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) EBD is an integrated part of the ABS system. EBD regulates the hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes to help provide optimal braking capacity. If the Brake failure warning light and ABS warning light come on at the same time, this could indicate a fault in the brake system. If the brake fluid level is above the lowest MIN mark, drive carefully to an authorized Volvo retailer and have the brake system inspected. WARNING! If the fluid level is below the lower MIN mark in the reservoir, DO NOT DRIVE. Have the car towed to an authorized Volvo retailer and have the brake system inspected. pg. 75 Winter driving, Long distance trips Cold weather precautions If you wish to check your car before the approach of cold weather, the following advice is worth noting: Make sure that the engine coolant contains 50 percent antifreeze: that is, 3.2 qts. (3 liters) Volvo Genuine Coolant/Antifreeze. This gives protection against freezing down to -31°F (-35°C). See section "Coolant". The use of "recycled" antifreeze is not approved by Volvo. Different types of antifreeze may not be mixed. Try to keep the fuel tank well filled - this prevents the formation of condensation in the tank. In addition, in extremely cold weather conditions it is worthwhile to add fuel line de-icer before refueling. The viscosity of the engine oil is important. Oil with low viscosity (thinner oil) improves cold- weather starting as well as decreasing fuel consumption while the engine is warming up. For winter use, 5W-30 oil, particularly the synthetic type *, is recommended. Be sure to use good quality oil but do not use this cold-weather oil for hard driving or in warm weather. See section "Engine oil" for more information. The load placed on the battery is greater during the winter since the windshield wipers, lighting, etc. are used more often. Moreover, the capacity of the battery decreases as the temperature drops. In very file:///K|/ownersdocs/2004/2004_S40-V40/04sv40_04c.htm (1 of 5)12/30/2006 4:29:26 PM
