The Volvo S60 offers a variety of standard features. The "My Car" feature allows you to save all of your preferred settings, and the S60 will automatically adjust the vehicle to your preferred settings with the touch of a button. Once you have become familiar with the basic controls on your S60's dashboard centre console, save your desired settings as an added convenience.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn your S60's hazard lights on by pressing the button that shows a red triangle. The triangle will illuminate to indicate that the hazard lights are active. Turn your hazards off by pressing the button again. The hazard light button is located on the right side of the control panel on the dashboard.

  2. 2

    Locate the climate control system, also known as the air conditioner system, in the centre console. Adjust the temperature, airflow and turn the A/C on and off.

  3. 3

    Press the "Defrost" button located on the right side of the air conditioning panel to defrost the rear window and side mirrors. The button will illuminate when the defrost feature is active. If you are in temperatures below 8.89 degrees C, the defrost feature will activate automatically. Press the button a second time to turn the feature off.

  4. 4

    Notice the driver- and passenger-side seat warmers knob on the left and right side of the climate system. Press the button with the chair icon on it to turn the seat warmers on, then turn the knob to adjust the temperature.

  5. 5

    Set your S60's air conditioning temperature with the climate system, your favourite radio stations, driver-side seat adjustments and side and rearview mirror adjustments to your preferred settings. Locate the "My Car" button on the top right side of the centre console. Press the button to store your current settings. Select which features you would like to store by reading the display menu that is brought up when you press the "My Car" button. Follow onscreen instructions to store your preferences; store up to 20 settings per automobile key. The settings automatically adjust when you use your key in the vehicle. If each driver uses his own key, the stored features will adjust depending on which key is used.
