Preconditioning is started/switched off and the button is illuminated/extinguished.


The car's doors and windows should be closed during the preconditioning of the passenger compartment.


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 under the front part of the car 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 the app*

Start of preconditioning and information about the selected settings can be managed from a device that has the Volvo On Call* app. Preconditioning heats* the passenger compartment to a comfortable temperature or ventilates the passenger compartment by blowing in air from outside.

The passenger compartment can also be preconditioned with the car remote start function (Engine Remote Start - ERS)Certain markets. via the Volvo On Call* app.
