I have this problem intermittently for the past year. Sometimes when I first start my XC, all of the switches and lights on the driver's door are dead. The lock/ unlock switch, the mirror controls, and the window switches all do not work. The backlighting in these switches does not function either. If I begin to drive away and the auto-lock fires, all of the doors lock except for the driver's door. I can reach across the vehicle and operate the windows and lock/ unlock switches at the other doors while the driver's door switches remain non-functional. After a few minutes, the switches on the driver's door light up and everything works normally. I've never had the problem last for more than 2-3 minutes.
I have video footage of this problem happening multiple times and the XC has been at the dealer once already for this problem (they reprogrammed something but the problem persists). The XC will be going back to the dealer in 2 weeks for a second attempt at a fix. It's a 2013 T6 with 42K miles.
Has anyone else had a similar or identical problem? If so, what was the fix? I'd like to help point my dealer in the correct direction. When I picked the vehicle up from the dealer last time, the service advisor admitted that they would have to call Volvo if the reprogramming did not fix the problem. I am worried that something expensive is dying and I'm afraid that it won't completely die until after the warranty expires @ 50K. I do not want to be stuck with the repair bill for a problem that began while the warranty was still effective.
