I just got an 06 S60R and love it! It's black with Nordkap and as soon as I get the tint done next week I'll post some pics for you all.<p>But I have a question. When I lock the car with the remote, can the dealer make the car/horn/whatever beep or have the lights flash? I am fairly obsessive compulsive with locking things and the silent lock drives me nuts. I lock it, watch the plunger go down. Then lock it again just to make sure <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Yes, I should seek therapy, but if there is a code that can be updated that would be cheaper and give me some sort of confirmation that it has locked that would make me feel much better...<p>Thanks,<br>Pat

Re: Make remote locking beep? (Pat S)

Funny, as I'm the same way with locks <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyway, here is a link with part numbers for that particular software download and other ones you may be interested in. BTW, even though it doesn't list the "R" in the list, it works (use the S60/V70 part number) ...I've done it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB/P2X/comfort/added-or-altered-car-functions/VCC-249393.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB...3.htm</A>

Re: Make remote locking beep? (IwantaS60R)

You can get a VADIS/VIDA download for confirmation of locking via the lights flashing, but to my or anyone else's knowledge, the horn will not beep on any Volvo solution. If your dealer has a solution where the horn beeps as well, please let us know! One would think that this is a bit easy to do...and why they didn't do it like all the rest of car manufacturers is a real mystery.<br>

Re: Make remote locking beep? (Pat S)

Pat S,<p>Welcome to the club!<p>Unfortunately, there is no audible locking confirmation available from Volvo directly. I am sure that there is some way to make it work, but it is obvious that the solution must be very complicated . . . otherwise someone would have come out with it already.<p>As you know, standard the vehicle comes with visual locking confirmation (when you lock it, the parking lights flash once). When you unlock the vehicle, there is no visual confirmation in stock form.<p>There is an available software download that will retain the 1 flash lock confirmation, but also add a 2-flash unlock visual confirmation. That is what I have on my car, and it works quite well for my needs.

Pat,<br>As you know, standard the vehicle comes with visual locking confirmation (when you lock it, the parking lights flash once). When you unlock the vehicle, there is no visual confirmation in stock form.<br>Since your visual confirmation doesn't appear to be working you may be a casualty of the hood interlock. If the hood is not closed VIGOROUSLY some interlock apparently prevents the visual confirmation from working. It happend to me last week and I seached the forum and fount that explination. Try slaming the hood to activate the visual confirmation.<br>I know it sounds strang but try it.<br>Don<p>

Re: Make remote locking beep? (soarsmith)

Thanks guys,<br>The lights do flash on lock, I didn't notice it the other day, but now that I'm looking for it, I do see it. <br>Beeping would be better of course, but I can live with the flash.<p>Pat

Re: Make remote locking beep? (Pat S)

Anyone know if there are settings for the approach lighting, such as extending the duration or having it tied to the lock/unlock? Also, I wonder if adding the aftermarket alarm would provide all the audible and visual lights and sounds that you are looking for...<p>There was a Volvo ad running during the winter months where, from above, you see a family approaching their snow-covered XC90. You don't see the car until they unlock it - then you see the lights flash under the snow and you here a high-tech sounding "beep". I was hoping that there is a setting in the system for this, but I'm now thinking it was just added to make the commercial more interesting.<p>- Tryg
