Seams to happen first thing some mornings but not all , and not due to cold, summer winter makes on difference .Press the remote all other doors lock unlock ok. Drivers door only works with the key, drivers main window /wing mirror controls all dead even to other doors( but all other individual door window buttons work fine)and the air temp reading stops working. Only the drives door speaker will work. Then if you drive the car and park it up for five or so mins it seams work fine , but if you stand there locking and unlocking it will not work. its as if your on film for some TV show , Any ideas as this is doing my head in. Regards swplumb

    Your car has several computers that control all the electronics, and they all communicate with one-another on a network called the CAN, or Controlled Area Network. You should have someone that is familiar with Volvo's look at this for you, it can be one of the modules, the network itself, or even a software issue. This requires special equipment, information and knowledge to diagnose these issues, I suggest a Volvo Dealership, or Independent shops that specializes in Volvo's or European cars. There should be plenty of these around you, assuming you live in the 90210.
    Good Luck
