      T6 (not T8) XC90 and S90 "PARKING CLIMATE" and "PRECONDITIONING" now in climate screen

      Hi there...

      Has anyone noticed that NON-HYBRID 90 models after the most recent software update have a PARKING CLIMATE screen swipe option on the climate menu?

      Has anyone verified if this system WORKS on these models?

      Thanks!

      I don't see how preconditioning is different from remote start except for the timers. Timers wouldn't be advised for a gas engine parked in a garage. So I hope they don't work.

      Parking climate just blows air around from the engine or outside depending on whether it's cold or hot out but would probably drain the 12v pretty quickly.

      I have it in MY17 and set it up one day for the entire week to precondition and didn't work once the whole week. I really tried it just for the hell of it because I dont really see the difference between remote start as it.
      I programmed the times from my app and I did notice that all the times appeared on the sensus screen but i couldn't get it to work any further than that.
      Also, I can start preconditioning even when not set on timer right from the app, but I get an error message with that too. I just figured it wasn't an option for anything other than T8 and it was just there for maybe future update? Not really sure but definitely does not work for me.

      I don't see it. Were your software updated recently?

      Thanks, I'm actually in the car now and on the hvac screen I only get the main screen with fan speed, the auto button etc and a swipe left brings up the rear climate screen. I've got nothing else and had the vehicle updated about 2 months ago so this may be quite a new feature added (?).

      Not sure if you guys have this in the app, but I have an option to precondition, which I've said it doesn't work, and it also shows the temperature inside the vehicle.


      And this is the error image I get every time precondition starts...

      I'm in Boston, Massachusetts

      Edit with sensus pics

      Don't know where the OP is located but Preconditioning and Parking Climate have always been there on my UK spec car with the D5 engine (also applies to T6 here) and they both work great. Parking Climate uses residual heat from the engine for up to 20 mins or until there is no heat left or the battery becomes low. Pre-conditioning (when it's cold) uses the 5kW auxiliary fuel-fired heater to pre-warm the engine and heat the cabin to ~20C. I believe the aux heater isn't fitted to US cars? When the cabin temperature is high, pre-conditioning blows external air through the car, again for 20 mins or until the battery becomes low.

      Since in NA we don't have auxiliary fuel-fired heater, blame our archaic laws, it means Preconditioning and Parking Climate for T5 and T6 doesn't work? If so they should just remove the option in this instance.

      I don't have that option on my volvo app... unless you need to set it on sensus first?

      If you have a T5 or T6 don't bother.

      But they are talking about T6 models here... and I just got the software update. Unless this only applies to MY17? I just don't understand how the pre-conditioning would work for a non-hybrid...

      Yes, and it works. And after 3 months of trying, I finally got them to make the app work, too (for me, not sure about everyone else)
