Firstly Hi all,<p>Purchased this V70 after selling off our old 850 T5 (loved that cult) but after having it for a few weeks have some minor problems.<p>Firstly the remote locking, After locking with the fob, I try and unlock with the physical key, which works but wont deactivate the motion sensor inside the car and as soon as I open the door sets the alarm off - is this normal, no problem for now, it’s just I can just imagine the remote's battery running out and then trying to open it with the key and setting off the alarm!? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"><p>While I’m on the locking subject - I’ve had trouble unlocking the tailgate a few times now. Phoned up the dealer who said that it can come "out of sync" with the rest of the car locks - how do I stop this?<p>Finally while on locking - I read in the manual that the car locks its self after 2 mins - but I have yet to witness this? Has it been turned off?<p>Next, how do I get the rain sensing wipers to stay on from startup - they reset to default every time take the key out, it’s just annoying to turn them on all the time.<p>And finally I’m not a huge fan of DSTC, but it came with the car. I know how to turn it off (but I still feel it’s not totally off) using the RESET button on the indicator stalk, but is there a way to keep this off. As with the rain sensors, it seems to reset to default ON every time I take the key out. Just a little boring to drive with it on in normal sunny conditions compared with my old 850!<p>I think tats all for now!<p>Many thanks <br>Brad<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: A few quickish questions - 07' V70 (Brad999)

Can't answer the others, but:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Brad999</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>Finally while on locking - I read in the manual that the car locks its self after 2 mins - but I have yet to witness this?

In that case, it assumes you unlocked by accident and re-locks them.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Brad999</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>Next, how do I get the rain sensing wipers to stay on from startup - they reset to default every time take the key out, it’s just annoying to turn them on all the time.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>You can't. This is for our "protection." It protects the wipers of those folks who might drive into a carwash with the rainsensor on and have the wipers ripped of.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Brad999</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>And finally I’m not a huge fan of DSTC, but it came with the car.
