Warning

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.

To be able to also cool the passenger compartment to the comfort temperature (with the car's air conditioning) the Engine Remote Start - ERSCertain car models and markets. via Volvo On Call* mobile app. can be used.
