Scheduled charging problem update

Those with a T5 recharge will be aware that there has been problems with the scheduled charging via the VOC app. Volvo originally gave a fix date of 1st quarter of 21.

After a check with my dealership today, the revised fix date is now 3rd Q of 21!!!

Re: Drivers seat pealing

No peeling but at 3 months old my charcoal leather started to show patches of a white substance!! It cleans off with a damp microcloth but reappears soon after.

Dealer reckons I have had something on the seats that has transferred to the leather...I haven't, but they are insistent.

Recharge - scheduled charging update?

Has anyone heard news of the fix for scheduled charging in VOC? When Volvo disabled it they said a fix in 'first quarter 21'. Well it's March 21 now! :roll:

Re: Recharge Help

Also remember that the parking climate will only run for a max of 30 mins. I don't use the timers I just start it via the app. It will also chew up about 10 to 15% of your hybrid battery even though you are plugged in.

Leather interior marks

Has anyone had white marks appearing on the leather seats? Being a sadsack, no other person than me has been in my car and I don't put anything on the seats at all, but, some white blotches have appeared on the passenger and rear seats. A damp micro cloth improves the appearance but they just come b...

Re: Volvo On Call App - Charging Timer

I think peter8642 has hit the nail squarely on the head! It is just far too complicated. All anyone wants is to simply plug in and tell the car when to start charging. Luckily for me I have the advantage of Volvo subsidising my electric miles for the first year. Has anyone used/is using the 'Ohme' p...

Re: Volvo On Call App - Charging Timer

I have an answer for you all. I too noticed the removal from the app and called my dealer. Spoke to the Master Tech who did a bit of digging. The feature was removed from the app in the 1st week of Nov due to the problems it caused draining the 12v battery (many posts about that problem). When charg...

Re: Can you drive the T5 sedately?

Yes you can, I do it all the time. Occasionally, if I've had a couple of dopios I stick it in sport mode and have a little fun. Not as much fun as I used to have every day with my last car (Merc C class coupe) but I'm getting on now so Volvo for me from now on.

Re: XC40 EV Charging

I took the factory standard 3 pin cable which is at least 7m long. I paid my local friendly spark to fit an outdoor socket on it's own fuse (32 amp for the future) for £200. And I can use it for outdoor power as well as the car.

Re: Climate while in Hybrid / Electric

YES!!!! I mainly drive in hybrid mode that rarely starts the dirty engine. Ever since the weather turned the car is always cold no matter what I set in the climate app. I suspect it has something to do with 'eco climate' while using the hybrid battery but I can't find how to stop it apart from drivi...
