pg. 54 Keys, Locking and unlocking the car



Master key
This key operates all locks.

Service key
Driver's door and ignition switch/steering wheel lock.

Keys

Your car is equipped with a central locking system. The key, used on the driver's door, the remote control, or central locking button, will lock/unlock all doors and the trunk. The glove compartment can also be locked with the master key.

Turn the key once to unlock the driver's door only.

Turn the key again (within 10 seconds) to unlock all doors and the trunk.
One turn with the key towards lock in the drivers door locks all doors, trunk.
Use the switch on the front door armrests to lock/unlock the car from the inside.

WARNING!

If the doors are locked while driving, this may hinder rapid access to the occupants of the car in the event of an accident. (Also see information on "Child safety locks").

Note: To help prevent accidentally locking the keys in the car, the central locking system is designed to unlock the doors immediately if the key is left in the ignition switch, the car is locked using the lock button on the door and the door is then closed. A sound from the lock will be audible at this time.

Please note that this function will not unlock the doors if the engine is running.

Immobilizer (start inhibitor)

Each of the keys supplied with your car contains a coded transmitter and receiver (transponder). The code in the key is transmitted to an antenna in the ignition switch where it is compared to the code stored in the start inhibitor module. The car can only be started if a properly coded key is used.

If you misplace a key, take the other keys to an authorized Volvo retailer for reprogramming as an antitheft measure.


This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following condition: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.


Courtesy lights

Home Safe System

When you leave your car at night, you can make use of the courtesy lighting function:
· Remove the key from the ignition switch.
· Pull the direction indicator lever towards the steering wheel (as when using the headlight flasher function).
· Exit the car and lock the doors.

The headlights, parking lights, license plate lights and the lights in the sideview mirrors will now come on and remain on for 30, 60 or 90 seconds (the time interval is at your discretion and can be changed by an authorized Volvo retailer).

Approach lighting

When approaching the car at night, press the yellow button in the central locking remote control (see illustration on page 56). This lights up the interior courtesy light, parking lights, license plate lights and the lights in the sideview mirrors.

Unlocking the trunk with the master key

Normally, the trunk should be locked and unlocked via the central locking system using the remote control or by using the key in the driver's door lock. This function should only be used if it is not possible to unlock the trunk via the central locking system.

NOTE: Unlocking the trunk in this manner will cause the alarm to sound. See page 58 for information on turning off the alarm. This function will not unlock the other doors.

If, for any reason, it should be necessary to unlock the trunk with the master key:
· Press the key into the upper or lower edge of the cover over the lock in the trunk lid.
· Move the key upward or downward to remove the cover.
· Insert the master key in the lock and unlock the trunk.


Central locking buttons

Central locking buttons

These buttons (located on the both front door armrests) can be used to lock/unlock all doors and the trunk and set the alarm if your car is so equipped.

The lock buttons on all doors can be used in the same way.


"Trunk lock" button*

"Trunk lock" function

Pressing this switch locks the trunk, even if the
doors are unlocked. The trunk will remain locked even if the doors are locked/unlocked using the master key or the remote control.

To use this function:
· Turn the master key to position II.
· Press the "trunk lock" button. An LED in the button will light up and a message will be displayed in the text window to indicate that this function is activated.
· The function can be turned off (deactivated) by turning the ignition key to position II and pressing the "trunk lock" button again (the LED in the button will go out).

* The position of this button may vary, depending on the specifications of your car.

pg. 56 Remote keyless entry system






Remote keyless entry system

Your car is equipped with a remote control transmitter. This transmitter uses a radio frequency which will allow "keyless" entry into the passenger compartment or the trunk. You will be supplied with two coded key ring transmitters, which will enable you to lock/unlock all doors and the trunk from a distance of 10-15 feet (3-5 meters).

On vehicles equipped with an alarm, the alarm will also be activated/deactivated by this system.

The car can also be locked/unlocked with the key.

As an extra security precaution in certain situations (valet parking, etc.), Volvo recommends that the transmitter not be included when the keys are given to anyone. The service key can be used instead. If one of the transmitters is misplaced, contact the nearest authorized Volvo retailer for assistance.


Buttons in remote control
1 - Lock, 2 - Unlock, 3 - Open trunk
4 - "Panic" function *, 5 - Approach lighting

Using the remote control

· Press the LOCK button once to lock all doors and trunk.

· Press the UNLOCK button once to unlock the driver's door only. Press this button again (within 10 seconds) to unlock all doors, trunk.
· To pop open the trunk (without unlocking the other doors), press the OPEN trunk button twice within 3 seconds.

* See page 58 for more information on this function.

Remote keyless entry system and driver's seat

The remote control transmitter also controls the electrically operated driver's seat in the following way:
· Adjust the seat to your preferences.
· When you leave your car, lock it using the remote control.
· The next time you unlock the driver's door with the same remote control (the one you used to lock the doors with) and open the driver's door, the driver's seat will automatically move to the position in which you left it.
The seat will move to this position even if someone else has adjusted the seat since you last drove the car.

NOTE:
· This feature will work in the same way with all of the remote control transmitters (up to 3) that you use with your car.
· This feature will not function if you lock your car with the key.



This device complies with FCC rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference and (2) this device must accept any interference that may be received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

pg. 57 Remote keyless entry system



WARNING!

Volvo does not recommend using the transmitter to lock the doors from inside the car. On cars equipped with an alarm, the alarm would be activated and would sound when one of the doors is opened. The doors must not be locked using the remote transmitter while the vehicle is occupied. In case of an accident, this may hinder rapid access to the occupants of the vehicle. The alarm will also sound on models equipped with this feature.

NOTE:
· If the doors are unlocked, the locks will automatically reengage (re-lock) and the alarm will reset after 2 minutes unless a door has been opened.
· Airbag deployment will automatically unlock the doors.
· The lock/unlock and alarm features can also be utilized by using the keys. See page 54.
· To avoid leaving your keys in the car, make a habit of always locking the car with the remote control.


Remote keyless entry system - replacing batteries

Each remote transmitter is powered by a three-volt, CR 2032 battery.

If the range of the transmitter is noticeably reduced, this indicates that the battery is weak and should be replaced.

Replacement: Remove the screw on the back of the transmitter cover. Replace the battery. Reinstall the cover and tighten the screw to help protect the transmitter.

NOTE: The old battery should be disposed of properly at a recycling center or at your Volvo retailer.

pg. 58 Alarm



Alarm

The alarm is automatically set (armed) whenever you lock your car.

When armed (set), the alarm continuously monitors a number of points on the car. The following conditions will set off the alarm:

· The hood is opened.
· The trunk is opened.
· A door is opened.
· The ignition switch is tampered with.
· If there is movement in the passenger compartment (if the car is equipped with the optional movement sensor).
· The car is lifted or towed (if the car is equipped with the optional inclination sensor).
· The battery is disconnected (while the alarm is set).

Arming (setting) the alarm

Press the LOCK button on the remote control, lock the car using the key in the driver's door or press the central lock button on one of the front doors with the door open. One long flash of the turn signals will confirm that the alarm is set.

Disarming the alarm

Press the UNLOCK button on the remote control or unlock the doors with the key.

Turning off (stopping) the alarm

If the alarm is sounding, it can be stopped by pressing the UNLOCK button on the remote control or by unlocking the driver's door with the key.

Visual alarm signal

The visual alarm signal is given by flashing all turn signals and turning on the interior lighting for approximately 5 minutes.

Audible alarm signal

An audible alarm signal is given by a battery powered siren. One alarm cycle lasts for 25 seconds.

"Panic" function

In an emergency situation, this feature can be used to attract attention.

Activate the "panic" function by pressing the red button on the remote control (see illustration on page 56) for at least 3 seconds or by pressing this button twice within 3 seconds. The turn signals will flash, the interior lights will go on and the car's horn will sound.

The function can be turned off by pressing any of the buttons on the remote control or will stop automatically after 25 seconds.

pg. 59 Alarm





Temporarily disconnecting the alarm sensor(s) - option

This button will only be found in cars equipped with the optional inclination and/or movement sensors.

In certain situations it may be desirable to disconnect the alarm sensors if, for example, you drive your car onto a ferry where the rocking of the boat could trigger the alarm or if a person or pet remains in the car with the doors locked.

To temporarily disconnect the sensor(s) from the alarm system:

From the time the ignition key is turned from the Drive position (position I) until you lock the car, you can press the button in the center console *. The LED in the switch will light up and a message will be displayed in the text window to indicate that the sensors are disconnected.

The car can then be locked in the usual way to set the alarm.

NOTE: The optional sensors are automatically reconnected to the alarm system the next time the car is unlocked and then locked again.

LED alarm status signals

The status of the alarm system is indicated by the red LED at the top of the dash:

· LED off - the alarm is not armed (set)
· LED flashes once per second - the alarm is armed (set)
· LED flashes rapidly before the ignition is switched on - the alarm has been triggered
· Fault in the alarm system: If a fault has been detected in the alarm system, a message will be displayed in the text window. Contact a Volvo retailer.

Automatic reset function

If the car has been unlocked with the remote control, the locks will automatically reengage (re-lock) and the alarm will reset after 2 minutes unless a door or the trunk has been opened.

* The position of this button may vary, depending on the specifications of your car.
