The alcohol lock is the perfect tool to help drivers make a sober decision. Volvo now introduces this aid to help reduce the number of accidents caused by drink-driving offences. An in-car, user friendly and reliable alcohol lock based on advanced fuel cell technology.
The unique alcohol lock is integrated in the car`s electronics. The alcohol meter is wireless and is heated ready for use in 10 seconds1. To shorten the waiting time, heating starts as soon as the central locking is activated. When the driver blows into the wireless alcohol meter the result is shown the car`s instrument panel.
When the driver exhales, the alcohol lock will give a green light if the reading is below 0.1 promille / 0.01 BAC. If the result is above 0.1 promille / 0.01 BAC but below the set promille limit (programmed at installation according to specific marker requirements), the alcohol lock will display a yellow light. The car can then be driven but the driver is recommended to wait for the green light. The car cannot be started if the result is above the programmed promille limit and a red light is shown.
For new markets, new alcohol limits apply, the limits for the alcohol lock are set at first calibration when the lock is also activated.
Once the engine has been stopped, it can be restarted within 30 minutes without providing a new breath sample.
The alcohol lock can be bypassed to operate the vehicle in emergency situations, if the handset has been removed. You can bypass the alcohol lock either once or an unlimited number of times.
The cradle for the Alcohol lock handset is installed in the car`s tunnel console, alternatively in the storage compartment behind the centre console. The cradle also acts as a charger for the device.
