Remote controls
Two remote controls, which also function as ignition keys, are provided with your car. The remote controls contain detachable metal key blades for manually locking or unlocking the driver's door and the glove compartment.

Loss of a remote control
If either of the remote controls is lost, the other must be taken with the car to a Volvo workshop. As an anti-theft measure, the code of the lost remote control must be erased from the system.
A separate label with the code of the key blade is supplied. Store the label in a safe place. Take the label to a Volvo workshop when ordering new keys. A maximum of six remote controls/key blades can be programmed and used for one car.

Each of the keys supplied with your car contains a coded 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 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.

Key blade
The security locking features of your car allow you to prevent unwanted access to your trunk and glove compartment, while still allowing a parking attendant to unlock, start, and re-lock the rest of your car.
To prevent unwanted access to the trunk and glove compartment for e.g. valet parking or when the car is brought to the retailer for service, the key blade must first be removed from the remote control:

Removing the key blade
Slide the spring loaded catch (1) to the side and pull the key blade (2) out of the remote control.

Reinserting the key blade in the remote control

  • Hold the remote control with the pointed end down.
  • Carefully slide the key blade into its groove.
  • Gently press the key blade in the groove until it clicks into place.

    Removing the key blade

    Locking the glove compartment
    Insert the key blade in the glove compartment lock and turn it 90° clockwise.

    Service or valet locking
    Turn the key blade 180° clockwise in the glove compartment lock to activate valet locking. This means that the trunk lid cannot be opened with the remote control. (A message appears in the information display.)

    pg. 89 Remote control and key blade

    Weak battery in the remote control
    When the battery begins to lose its charge, the Information symbol (see page 39) lights up and REMOTE BATTERY LOW VOLTAGE is shown in the information display.
