Just picked up a new XC90 V8 today (2006). Was told by the salesman that Volvo purposely disabled auto-locking on the doors, and that they could program it via software to lock at speed. Has anyone done this?<p>Also, was wondering if the passenger side mirror is supposed to automatically move down on reverse to aid backing up? Mine does not, or at least I have not found how to program it.<p>Thanks<p>

Re: New XC90 V8 - questions (eclou)

First of all, welcome and congratulations on your new ride!<p>In the US, auto-locking is normally turned off. This is a VCNA decision: in Europe, the standard seems to be the other way around. This is one of several things that your dealer can adjust via a software download. See <A HREF="http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB/XC90/comfort/electronic/VCC-245901.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB...1.htm</A> (or go to <A HREF="http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB/XC90/default.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://acctest.semcon.se/en-GB/XC90/default.htm</A> under "Comfort", "Electronics", "Personal Car Settings") for more information on this and other options. I believe that your MY06 includes one free change of some/most of these settings during the "adjustment period". Beyond that, you may be charged something as the dealer has to pay VCNA for the download.<p>Regarding the side mirrors, unfortunately there is no automatic function that will move the mirrors down on reverse. The "solution" (==hack) is to program one of the memories with the mirror(s) down. Then, you can just hit the memory button and the mirror will adjust itself.<p>HTH

Re: New XC90 V8 - questions (eclou)

Coming from an X5 into the XC90 I had similar questions...<p>I had a big fight with my dealer about the auto-locking feature. They eventually "activated" it at no charge. <p>I miss the passenger mirror drop-down feature. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: New XC90 V8 - questions (ig_mb)

Thanks for the tips ig_mb. I will probably have the auto-lock and the locking acknowledgement activated

I had the "auto lock" feature done about a month ago at no charge. They engage at around 4mph I believe and the back locks have to be unlocked every time someone needs to get out. I seem to always forget this and have to go unlock them to get the kids out but overall my wife likes the safety.

If you had waited until the 7,500-mile service (can be done as early as 6,000 miles), these adjustments are done at not charge.<p>Yannis
