Lots of Volvo features can be set with Volvo VIDA DiCE OBD2 diagnostic tool, e.g heated seats, temps, theme, LDW, radio etc. Volvo owners (2008-2014) feeling that the default sound level is too low have the possibility to change to a louder sound. From 14w40 DIM will support programming of sound level of Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
Volvo introduced the Lane Departure Warning system and the Driver Alert Control on its 2008 model-year S80, the S70 and XC70 executive cars. Volvo’s lane departure warning system uses a camera to track road markings and sound an alarm when drivers depart their lane without signaling.
Many customers know that it can be done via Volvo VIDA diagnostic software, but they don’t know where to go. Here is an instruction.
