The currently selected driving mode is displayed here. If you use the geartronic function on the automatic transmission, the currently selected gear will be displayed.
11 Ambient temperature indicator
This display indicates the air temperature outside your car. A "snowflake" symbol in the text window is displayed when the temperature is in the range of 23 - 36¡ F (-5 - +2¡ C).
Please note that this symbol does not indicate a fault with your car.
At low speeds or when the car is not moving, the temperature readings may be slightly higher than the actual ambient temperature.

Turn the button to adjust the clock.

V70 XC and V70 with non-turbo engine.
When the ignition key is turned, all of the warning lights in the lower right-hand side of the instrument panel should go on to test the function of the bulbs. If a light does not go off after the engine has started, the system indicated should be inspected.

if towing a trailer, will go on while driving.
NOTE: If the fuel filler cap is not closed tightly or if the engine is running when the is refueled, the Malfunction Indicator Lamp may indicate a fault. However, your vehicle's performance will not be affected. Use only Volvo original or approved fuel filler caps.
Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) system (option) An LED in the STC or DSTC switch in the center console will light up to indicate that the system is activated. See page 20 for further information.

If a warning message is displayed when e.g. you are using the trip computer or would like to use the telephone, this message must be erased before you can access the function of your choice. Press button A to erase the warning message.
Erased messages are stored in the system's memory until the required action has been taken. You can scroll through the stored messages by pressing button A. The text window can be cleared (the message will be returned to memory) by pressing button A again.

Press this switch for at least half a second to turn the STC system on or off. An LED in the switch will light up to indicate that the system is on. See page 20 for more information on STC. This system should be switched off if you, for any reason, temporarily have to drive with tires of different dimensions (e.g., spare tire).
NOTE: To help reduce the risk that this system is turned off inadvertently, the switch must be held in for at least half a second to turn STC off. The warning symbol in the instrument panel will light up to indicate that STC is OFF.
5. Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) - option
This button is used to switch DSTC off. When the LED in the button is ON, this indicates that the system is ON (the light will also come on if a fault has been detected in the system).
NOTE: To avoid inadvertently switching the system off, the button must be pressed for at least half a second before DSTC is deactivated.
The warning symbol will come on to indicate that DSTC has been switched off. The system is automatically switched on when the engine is started. DSTC should be switched off if the steering wheel position or the front wheels are not properly aligned.

Current fuel consumption This value indicates the current fuel consumption, based on readings taken once per second. When the car is not moving, "----" will be displayed.
This value indicates average speed since the last time the trip computer
was reset (by pressing RESET, button C). When the engine is switched
off, information on average speed is stored and remains in system
memory until the RESET (button C) is pressed again.
