My car..settings..car settings..light settings..approach (!) light duration. CAN BE off (!) 30s, 60s, 90s.

The same can be found for Home Safe.

At least for my S60.
Have the setting at 30s in MyCar. Followed your instructions, but no joy. Just flashes the high beam.

In my last car (3-series), you had to open the driver's door and then flash the lights. Tried that on the Volvo (daytime and night time, with lights on Auto).... and that doesn't work either.

I'm stumped.

Yes, just tried mine and that's exactly how they work in my V60.

I have the light switch set to auto if that makes any difference. And pulled the stalk beyond the flash position to the positive click of the main beam position. Also it's now dusk - maybe it doesn't work in bright daylight?

Many thanks Chrisv60!! Finally got it working. I didn't realise you had to pull the stalk till it 'clicked'.

Thanks everyone.
