I ended up getting the 1 stage unlocking. They ended up charging me $100 for the program and $30 to install it. Yes I know what a sham but pressing the button twice annoyed me enough to pay the stealer to just do it.

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (gdclnfn)

I too have 1 stage unlocking and confirmation. While I understand that the 2 stage unlock is the "norm" for the US market, it was annoying enough to me that I paid to have it modified. Have heard of others getting this done for free at 7500 mile service, it's worth a try... <br>Not a lot of dealers are aware of the mods so if you decide to have this done, bring the 6849 99x-x numbers with you so that they can reference when ordering software from VADIS/VIDA.

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (ggleavitt)

at 7500 you will be handed a sheet with all the modification you wish to have done for free.<br>Each will have an explanation and you just check the ones you want<br>

Nobody handed me a sheet with free modifications at the 7500 mile service.<br>This at Roger Beasly Volvo in Austin.<br>I also was not aware of this possibility, so I did not ask for it.

I also was not offered a free modifications sheet in Austin. Is this supposed to be offered per Volvo coporate and if so could we get them to offer it retro-actively?

I believe the free software updates were only to the '06 cars because they got rid of the free service for the 4yr/50k. Let me know if I'm wrong though.

Roger Beasley ain't giving you anything for free, trust me. Good to see other Austin members in here. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (Majisto)

Today I scheduled my 7,500 mile visit at Volvo of Oak Park in Chicago. (I just moved here recently...) I asked the service rep about changing this setting and he told me, "Just to get the software download from Volvo cost $400, and the labor charge is nominal." I didn't read this thread until tonight... I might consider cancelling my 7:30am appointment tomorrow morning and calling around...

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (LJUII)

This morning I called my dealer (Crest Volvo, Macomb, Michigan) and told them I was up for my 7,500 mile service call. I asked the sales rep about changing my personal settings for the door locks while I was there. She said, "No problem, it costs $30 to download the software from Volvo, and the installation is free." I said, "Sounds like you just earned my business!" I called Volvo of Oak Park, Chicago and cancelled my appointment for this morning. It might not make much sense to spend $100 bucks in gas for an oil change & tire rotation, but I get to visit mom & dad, Crest Volvo has free hot dogs and C70 test drives this weekend. The deal just keeps sounding better & better! Also, it made no sense to spend $400++ for a simple personal adjustment on a $48,500 (sticker price) vehicle.

Re: (XC-Ski)

Was the rear-view mirror dim level a software download or just a setting change? Is it a change that is made through VADIS?<p>When I made the appointment for my 7500mi service. my service manager, Menke in Monterey, wasn't aware of the free changes for '06 models. He offered to research it said he'd have the paperwork waiting for me. He kept his word and had it waiting for me the next day when I dropped the XC90 off. He also agreed to turn on the "autolock" feature even though that feature isn't listed on the worksheet. He didn't charge me for autolock. I asked him about the auto dimming mirror and he said his tech couldn't find any software for changing the dim level. He did say that if I could find a part number he'd do it for me. <p>BTW, since having the autolocking feature turned on and one-click unlocking turned on my locks will not stay locked if I try to lock the car with the button on the door. With key in pocket and uppon exiting the vehicle I try to just lock it with the door button. The locks go down but before I can get the door shut they come back up. It only happens with a door open, if all doors are shut I can lock from inside with door button just fine. Anyone else having this problem?<p>JJ

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (LJUII)

Just got back from my weekend excursion to Crest Volvo in Macomb, MI. The service manager so felt bad that he could not get the oil line recall completed, and the fact that I drove all the way from Chicago to have my 7,500 mile service done; he gave me the auto locking software job for free! And, I got to test drive the new C70 convertible, and I got two hot dogs to boot! That C70 is SWEET!!! I was almost tempted to throw down the keys on my XC-90 and make a deal. <B>Definitely a dealer to keep!</B> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Personal Car Settings using using VADIS/VIDA (LJUII)

I had autolock option added; cost c£20. works ok & saves having to remember locking car when on move. Door lock from remote on leaving vehicle sometimes failed afterwards; dealer repaced door actuator, or so they said?<p>On V50/S40 this feature available from menu control along with lots of other toys.

I have VIDA and DiCE, and am trying to do the one-stage unlock (known as Standard Unlock in VIDA) on my 2008 XC90 V8 AWD. I can't find how to reprogram the car for this function. Do I really have to have the dealer do it? I can't do it myself? This as well as auto-lock after 7 mph driving (which I also want) are both mentioned in VIDA when I search up "one stage unlock", so it looks like it's possible. Just don't know how to do it...

Has anyone done the Direct/One-Stage Unlocking feature download via VIDA on their XC90? I'm trying to do it on my 2008 XC90 V8. My dealer is quoting me $200 for the simple software download that achieves this Direct/One-Stage Unlocking.

I have VIDA/DiCE at home. Is it possible for me to do this at home, or do I have to go to a dealer?
