Asked the dealer to change my settings so that the headlamps will flash on lock and unlock - they are telling me that it's not possible to have that option with the Bi-Xenon headlamps on the S60Rs. Anyone here in the U.S. have this option?

Dealer activated the light flash on locking but the they cannot activate flash on unlocking. Dealer called the Volvo rep and got confirmation that they cannot flash on unlock on my 05 V70R<p>

I believe this what you're referring to:<p>Allows you to add or remove the visual confirmation signal to your car. This function makes the car's direction indicators flash once on locking if all doors are closed, and twice on unlocking.<p>Function for Automatic locking / add<p><br>S80 01- 8637 408-9 <p>S60 8637 412-1 <p>V70 01- 8637 410-5 <p>My dealer changed this for free during a scheduled oil change. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Re: Headlamp flash on lock/unlock w/Bi-Xenon (TexasV70R)

Is there a setting to 'chirp' the horn? Funny thing about locking the car, I'm usually walking away from it at the time, not towards it, so the 'visual' cue of the flashing lights is pretty useless most of the time as my back is to the car. My GMC chirps its horn, and it's a lot more convenient, not to mention that it's an easy way to find my car in a parking structure ... just hit the lock button within a couple hundred feet and the audible feedback is much more useful than lights.

Re: Headlamp flash on lock/unlock w/Bi-Xenon (Lead Foot 60)

Wether or not it's technically possible, the factory rep in my area intructed my dealer not to do it (on my XC90) due to safety concerns. They claim they don't want potential trouble-makers (car-jacker, thieves, etc) to know that your vehicle has been unlocked and sneak into before you get there. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Sound crazy? Maybe, but that's what they said to me.<p>LTA<br>

the dealer should have a list of these "options" provided whn you take delivery. My salesman was good but I wish I had this cause I am sure many opeople did not even realize things like this, 5mph door locking, heat seat temp, etc.<p>Not meaning to rant just a thought. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Headlamp flash on lock/unlock w/Bi-Xenon (flybynight)

Ok thought i had cleared up the whole lock/unlock turn signal flash thing but now the dealer saying that 2005 s60r doesn't have the ability to flash turn signals on unlock (only flashes once on lock). Anyone have this option on an 05 s60r?<br>

I have an '05 S60R and it flashes turn signals once for lock, and twice for unlock. I don't know what the hell your dealer is talking about, but they clearly don't know anything about after-care.

To those with this issue:<p>Inform your retailer to log into VRCC. Under parts, select the parts catalog. Click on the model of the vehicle (S60 or V70). Click on "Comfort." Then at the bottom of that list, click on "Added or altered car functions." On the next page that opens, click on "Technical data." <p>That lists all the available functions and software numbers. <p>I copied the full text of the document and inserted it here for reference.
