XC40 Remote Start

Post by CJB0073 » Mon Mar 18, 2019 1:14 am

Hi All,

I have a new XC40 and i cant seam to find the remote start option in my app.

Couple of questions:

Do i need to activate it somewhere in the car?
Is remote start an optional extra, as i cant remember that option and must not have got it, if it is...

By the way i love the XC40, but the boot is smaller than i remember once i get the pram in there :)

Hi All

The option to remote start is also missing for me from the App. I also don't remember if this was an optional extra and the sales guy wasn't very helpful. I'll keep digging for info and call the garage. In the meantime, does anyone have any ideas?

Hi all,
You must have an automatic transmission for remote start, also some countries it is illegal to start the car remotely so this function is not available in those areas. I’ve attached a screenshot of where remote start is located on the latest version of the Volvo on call app:

Hi and Thanks for the reply!
I do have an automatic transmission and according to the Volvo support page remote start is available in Cyprus.

I'm aware of the location of the remote start function but it doesn't appear for me. I will call the garage tomorrow and try to find out what the issue is.

Hi all
Could it be that it is only available for petrol engine and not diesel?

It should be on both. I have the D4 and Remote start works fine in Greece.

I have a version of 4.6.3. Not sure what will be the difference. Try to update your version from the App Store for apple or google store for android devices.
