Default Canít set parking climate timer from app

Itís always been a bit temperamental but today it simply will not allow me to set a timer (I get the red ďfailed to set timerĒ thing). I can start it remotely but I want a timer ideally as simply starting it doesnít put the seats or wheel heating on. The only thing i think Iíve done differently is I set a timer whilst in the car.

Any ideas?

on the computer (windows) doing anything within the app gives me the red failed to do action at the bottom, however it actually does send the command to the car, might be worth checking the car see if its set?

I've noticed in the mornings since its gotten colder and i'm assuming more people have pre heating ability nowadays the app often wont log in for me

Deleted the timer set from in the car, it now lets me set timers from the app.

Like you, I can't believe how flaky that function is after all this time when it so easily could have been resolved. As others have said, sometimes the app says it has failed but in fact it has worked if you go to the car and look or sometimes close the app, restart it and magically, it's there!

Also, how many times have you seen the app report the doors are unlocked when actually, they are locked and have been for some time.

I'm hoping next week the known seats and wheel parking climate software bug might finally get fixed as I'm going for a full software update to resolve another issue that's just come up. I think the November 2018 update might have resolved the parking climate issue. I'll report back if the update does fix it!

If the Outside Temperature is higher than 10 Degrees C, am I right that you can't get the Steering Wheel Heater or Seat Heater to come on automatically or remotely?

Correct. To be precise, the temperature has to be below 10C.

Indeed the november update solves this. But it f*ks up your internet connection via the car modem. Volvo is working on this.

My MY19 V90 CC allows me to set the seat and wheel heating to come on when I remote start it. I'm fairly certain that it is working as the car is now a toasty when I get in. However, I might be mistaken and the wheel and seats are only coming on with the key!

Sadly, the very latest full software update STILL doesn't fix the parking climate with VOC app issue. The parking climate function still works perfectly from the car direct but will not respect the state of the heated seat and steering wheel tick boxes when starting the parking climate from the app. This used to work really well before they 'updated' the car software almost a year ago and it all suddenly stopped working.
