Default Parking Climate error

Still relatively new to the world of Volvo, so please forgive yet another question. I read with interest that parking climate is available only on Hybrid cars, is this true? I have a diesel version, 17 plate, and on my VOC app, there is a parking climate option which Im sure have worked in the past but now spits an error of temporarily unavailable. Any help would be appreciated!

Parking climate works if you've spec'ed Auxiliary Fuel Fired Heater.

I have a diesel XC90 (D5) and I went for the Auxiliary Fuel Fired Heater option. Parking Climate works fine via the VoC app both in scheduled as well as on-demand modes. Occasionally though, the command fails due to issues with the Volvo servers. I simply retry after a minute or two and it works.

Thank you so much. I brought a second hand from third party dealer. Is there a way I can find out if I have it?

Check this article:

It states that "The heater is fitted in the front right-hand wheel housing"

I've never looked to be honest, so not sure if this is something you can look for, to confirm its there.

If you're saying it's worked in the past, its probably there. When its working you hear a hum. And when you open the door whilst its working, you see a heating symbol in the dash as well. This symbol is listed on this page.

Thanks. I wont go searching for it. I say it with confidence it has worked but more I think Im getting confused if it was that or the remote start which I think does serve the purpose in these cold weather. That said, I cant set the timers. I did have a look at the Sensus but dont see any controls for timer etc provided in there which probably tells me I dont have it(?).

There may be an image of wavy heat lines with a strikeout inside the fuel filler flap also if you have parking climate (youre not supposed to run the aux heater while fuelling)

But I suspect a lack of controls on sensus is the big giveaway!

My thoughts exactly re Sensus. I guess the remote start would have to do for now. Wish Volvo on call was dynamic enough in showing the features applicable to your vehicle only!

I completely forgot about this. This will tell you for sure if you have the fuel fired heater.
