2010 Volvo XC60: Found the Clock

September 14, 2010

At some point during dude's weekend, I was looking at the gauges (as one often does whilst driving) and wondered "what's the deal with those four lines and the colon?"

I twisted the stalk-mounted trip computer thingy, but the four lines didn't go anywhere. Then I remembered Kelly's blog post about the MIA clock. The four lines and colon were clearly the unset clock.

So finding the clock ended up taking two people, and resetting would require just as many. After failing to find the clock setting in the trip computer, I turned to the craptastic menu functions on the center stack. The clock was not within "car settings." So I gave up, content with the sundial I keep handy for such instances.

Fast forward to yesterday and I'm sitting at the gas station with Takahashi waiting to refill the XC60. While I tried futilely to find the clock reset once again, Mark RTFM'd. "Turn knob clockwise..."

That's all it took. The T1/T2 trip reset stalk-button thingy in the gauges has a little clock icon next to it (though its hidden from the driver's line of site by the T1/T2 trip reset stalk-button thingy). I turned it and sure enough, there was time.

In short, found the clock.
