Remote start (ERS) - symbols and messages

Updated 7/23/2018
Remote start (ERS – Engine Remote Start) means that the car's engine can be started remotely in order to warm up/cool down the passenger compartment before departure. ERS is activated via key and/or via Volvo On Call*, see Volvo On Call mobile app.

In situations where the ERS function fails or is interrupted, a symbol is shown in the combined instrument panel, supplemented by an explanatory text message.
