What happens when your Smart Car becomes deaf and blind

While checking my Home Assistant status, oh “horror”, I see that my “VolvoCar” requires reconfiguration.

So I reconfigure and result is a FAIL.

Next I go to the VolvoCar app and signin as usual. Result is also a FAIL.

So final step was to call the Volvo-On-Call service and they acknowledge a server failure:

“When do you expect service to be back up?”


“Do you have a backup system in the meantime?”


“Have you been hacked?”

“We don’t know”

All in all this is not a great confidence inspiring performance….
