How are you the Volvo owners. Kindly assist me with the following issue. I bought a Volvo S60, 2001, T5 from Japan, when a warning symbol comes out the Text Window is displaying in Japanese.

So how do i reset the Text Window so that it can display in English because i understand English and not Japanese?


Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Sounds like a VIDA thing, or glue an iPhone over it with the lens app...😀

You have to download and install the English application into your car I think to CEM or all the control modules that display text.. But not sure.. But I know you need to use vida looking into doing it myself..
