Did you have the software installed to remove the factory radio as a control module?

Like tech said you need to take your car back to the dealership and have them reload your software so that the factory head unit is "removed" within the configuration. Until you do that, the computer will think there is something wrong. Your mechanic should've known this already, so I'm puzzled as to why they didn't suggest doing this for you?!?!?!?

That should for now. But with the $$ you already spent on the aftermarket radio spend another $30.00 for the software plus .5 labor and you are done.

Tell them the truth you installed an aftermarket radio and you need to software downloaded to remove the factory radio.

Not sure about the code it might be a generic code. I know the Volvo codes.

It would be a code like SRS-0021 or something like that.
There is a SRS-0042 listed but it is for R/F side air bag.
