I am just looking for the little tips and tricks for the S60 series car.<p>For example, I just found out that by holding the car lock button for about 5 seconds you will turn on/off the autolock function (when doors lock by going over 5 mph)<p>Are there any other tips like this to help custimize the car?<p>I am really looking for a way to make the lights flash when I unlock the car.<p>Thanks

Re: Tips and Tricks for an S60 (Mikie)

My tip is to read your manual. And not just skim it but read it from beginning to end.

Re: Tips and Tricks for an S60 (Mikie)

I'm pretty sure I remember reading here about someone who wanted the same thing, (or at least very similar,) with their lights that you're looking for. Try searching the forum here if you haven't already. From what I recall, he wound up doing it himself. He laid out the whole process start to finish. I think it was a bigger job than it sounds like it would be but he did get it to work. I'll check back later if you can't find it when I get back from work this afternoon. Good Luck!
