 Keys and remote controls

Keys
Two keys are provided with your car; a master key and a service key. The master key, the remote control, and the central locking button may all be used to lock and unlock all of your car's locks.

The service key will operate only the driver's door and the ignition switch. It is intended to help deter unwanted entry into the glove compartment and trunk.

  • 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 driver's door armrest to lock/unlock the car from the inside.

    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. 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 will start only with a properly coded key.

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

    NOTE: 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.

    warningWARNING!

    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"

     Keys and remote controls

    Remote controls
    Your car is equipped with a remote control transmitter. This transmitter uses a radio signal to 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.

     Keys and remote controls

    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 and fuel filler door. Press this button again (within 10 seconds) to unlock all doors and the trunk.
  • To pop open the trunk (without unlocking the doors), press the OPEN trunk button twice within 3 seconds.

    NOTE:

  • Airbag deployment will automatically unlock the doors.
  • The keys may also be used to lock and unlock the doors, and to activate and deactivate the alarm system.
  • To avoid leaving your keys in the car, make a habit of always locking the car with the remote control.

    Automatic re-locking
    If the doors are unlocked, the locks will automatically re-engage (re-lock) and the alarm will rearm after 2 minutes unless a door or the trunk has been opened. * See page 125 for more information on this function.

    warningWARNING!

    Never use the transmitter to lock the doors from inside the car

    Doing so would ACTIVATE:

  • the break
  • in alarm, which would sound if one of the doors were opened
  • the optional interior motion and inclination alarm sensors.

    Doing so would DEACTIVATE:

  • the sunroof and interior courtesy light controls.
  • the central locking buttons on the front door armrests, although the interior door handles would still function to allow occupants to leave the car.

    Disabled features would remain disabled until the remote were used again to unlock the car.

    In addition, locking an occupied vehicle would hinder rapid access to the occupants in an accident or emergency.

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

    To replace the battery

  • Remove the screw on the transmitter cover with a small screwdriver.
  • Remove the cover carefully pressing it rearward/upward.
  • Replace the battery with a new 3-volt, CR 2032 battery. The battery should be inserted with the minus side upward. Avoid touching the contact surfaces of the battery with your fingers.
  • Reinstall the cover and tighten the screw to help protect the transmitter.

  • The hood is forced open.
  • The trunk is forced open.
  • A door is forced open.
  • 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 armed).
  • The siren is disconnected when the alarm is disarmed.

    Arming 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 armed.

     Alarm

    Temporarily turning off 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 turn off the optional inclination and movement 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 pet is left in the car with the doors locked.

    To temporarily turn off the inclination and movement alarm sensors from the alarm system:B From the time the ignition key is turned from the Drive position (position II) 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
  • LED flashes once per second - the alarm is armed
  • 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 your Volvo retailer.

    Automatic re-lock/re-arm system
    If the car is unlocked with the remote, the car will re-lock and the alarm will re-arm 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.
