Check if your Volvo has a Recall



Volvo Cars USA LLC and Volvo Cars Canada LTD on behalf of the Volvo Car Corporation has decided to launch Recall R10256: Left-hand rear turn indicator update on certain model year 2024 XC40 vehicles.

Volvo Car Investigations has determined that the left-hand (LH) rear turn indicator may fail to signal due to a diagnostic misdetection of short to ground.

As a result, this would fail to warn a rear approaching driver their intentions to turn or change travel lanes, increasing the risk of an accident.

To remedy concerned vehicles, Volvo Cars will update the software in the Central Electronic Module (CEM). This software will be available via OTA at a later date.

Volvo Cars centrally has not received any reports alleging injuries, fatalities, or crashes related to this condition.

A total of 17,409 U.S. and 3,557 Canadian vehicles are eligible for this recall.

Note: Vehicles affected by R10256 can receive this update via Over-The-Air (OTA) sometime in late January and may have the latest software already. Please check the current software version in Vehicle settings > System > System details > Software update. If the vehicle has 2.13.3 or later, then this action has been satisfied and should not be performed. Vehicles will be manually marked if performed via Over-The-Air within 2 weeks.



We have no reports of incidents related to the issue; however, we encourage customers to contact their retailer and have this repair completed as soon as possible.




Vehicle eligibility must be confirmed:

  • Vehicle Inquiry – Warranty Vehicle Inquiry where the message “Recall R10256 LH rear turn indicator” will appear for eligible vehicles, F4=History from the main Inquiry menu must be selected to confirm Recall R10256 has not been completed. Eligibility can also be confirmed in TIE.

All vehicles must be checked for any incomplete recalls or service campaigns or service upgrades. All open Recall, Service Campaign or Service Action repairs must be completed. If you have any questions concerning this recall, send them to recall@volvocars.com.



It is the retailer’s responsibility to check vehicle eligibility prior to delivery.



No parts are required to be returned for this recall. Please review Parts Bulletin R10256 once available.



An owner notification will be sent out in mid-February that will notify the owner of this recall instructing them to contact their Volvo Retailer and request an appointment to have this repair completed if they choose not to accept the Over-The-Air (OTA) download.

Volvo Diagnostics & Reprogramming


VIDA stands for "Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for Aftersales". A VIDA subscription could include service and parts information along with wiring schematics, and the ability to download software to a vehicle. Product subscriptions are ranged to be appropriate for a full-service shop through to a stand-alone parts counter.

The wiring schematics for MY's 1994-2016 * are available as separate online PDF type subscription products.

*Wiring schematics for MY 2016 and newer (XC90, S90,V90 and similar platform vehicles) are only viewable within a VIDA subscription that includes Diagnostics or Diagnostics and Software Download.

If you are outside the United States or Canada go to: https://workshopsupportguide.volvocars.biz/home.aspx



Users must always log onto the volvotechinfo.com (VTI) website with the same VTI Username – it is linked to your VIDA account. If you purchased a subscription two years ago, your company already has a VTI Username (and corresponding VIDA account). Make sure you are logging onto this website with that same Username.

** Volvo Tech Info and VIDA are two separate systems. You will have TWO distinct ID s.

When purchasing a subscription or software download Volvotechinfo.com accepts credit and debit cards issued by Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Your credit card company must support AVS checking (Address Verification System) AVS compares the submitted street address and ZIP code with the values on file at the cardholder's bank. The information you enter must match EXACTLY with what your card company has on file. Please do not try to process your credit card more than once if it is declined, unless you are using a completely different credit card/debit card number, or you are correcting an error in your Billing Information.

If you try to process an order multiple times and your credit card continues to be declined because of AVS, you will see multiple pending charges on your credit card for the full order amount. Funds for each pending charge will be unavailable until the hold is cleared. This may take several days.


DiCE Information

Pirated DiCE products are becoming increasingly common. These units are mostly available from aftermarket sources and websites. These units commonly cost between one half to two thirds the Volvo price, sometimes including an illegal version of VIDA. Technically, the units are of much less quality and they have been proven to introduce diagnostics and fault tracing issues, as well as new problems into the vehicle. All of which will result in repair delays and customer dissatisfaction.

Most importantly, Volvo will not provide support to customers using these units. Volvo can only support DiCE tools manufactured to our standards from Bosch or those based on J2534-2 certifications.


Vehicle Communication Tools


XC90 (16-) reference SMB 00-337. All older vehicles can still use DiCE or J2534.

A vehicle communication tool transfers data from a VIDA workstation to the correct receiver in the vehicle.

VIDA supports DiCE and J2534 devices. Volvo Car Corporation recommends DiCE for vehicle communication with D2 and GGD protocol-based vehicles.



DiCE uses a Bluetooth connection to transfer information between VIDA and the vehicle. A USB cable can be used as an alternative to the Bluetooth connection.

Please note that no third party Bluetooth dongles can be used with DiCE, only Volvo Cars DiCE equipment can be used.


Multiple DiCEs

It is possible to connect more than one DiCE to VIDA and download software to as many as three vehicles in parallel and have one vehicle in the diagnostic workflow at the same time. One VIDA workstation with four DiCEs can thus handle four vehicles simultaneously.


J2534 devices

For all vehicles with model year 2004 and later, equipped with OBD and reprogramming capability, manufacturers shall comply with SAE J2534. There are two different versions of J2534:

  • J2534-1 can be used to download software to vehicles from, and Including, model year 2004. J2534-1 manages software to control modules on CAN HS (Controller Area Network High Speed) that are emission related.


J2534-1 cannot be used for diagnostics.

  • J2534-2 manages software download to control modules on both CAN HS and CAN MS (Controller Area Network Middle Speed).

The hardware used to validate VIDA's compliance with J2534 can be purchased separately from third-party suppliers. Validation has been done using the following J2534 pass-thru devices:

  • J2534-1: Actia Passthru+ XS and carDAQ2534.

For more information regarding these devices, please contact the respective manufacturer.
