Preconditioning warms the passenger compartment and engine or cools the passenger compartment before driving. The function can use direct start from the centre display or a mobile phone.
Starting/stopping from the centre display
Do not use preconditioning if the car is equipped with a heater*:
- In unventilated spaces indoors. Exhaust gases are emitted if the heater starts.
- In locations with combustible or flammable material nearby. Fuel, gas, long grass, sawdust, etc. may ignite.
- When there is a risk that the heater’s exhaust line may be blocked. For example, deep snow inside the front right-hand wheel housing can obstruct the heater’s ventilation.
Remember that the preconditioning can be started by a timer that has been set for a long time in advance.
Starting from a mobile phone*
Start of preconditioning and information about the selected settings can be managed from a mobile phone that has the Volvo On Call* mobile app. The preconditioning warms the passenger compartment to the comfort temperature or cools it to the current outer temperature.
