Keys and remote controls

Keys
Two types of keys are provided with your vehicle; master keys and a service (valet) key.

  • The master key, the remote control, and the central locking button may all be used to lock and unlock all of your vehicle'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.
  • Turn the key once to unlock the driver's door only.
  • Turn the key again (within 10 seconds) to unlock all doors and the tailgate.
  • One turn with the key towards lock in the drivers door locks all doors and the tailgate.
  • Use the switch on the driver's door armrest to lock/unlock the vehicle from the inside.

    warningWARNING!

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

    NOTE: To help prevent accidentally locking the keys in the vehicle, the central locking system is designed to unlock the doors immediately if the key is left in the ignition switch, the vehicle 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 vehicle 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 vehicle will start only with a properly coded key.
    Each key has a unique code, which your Volvo retailer uses if new keys are required. A maximum of six remote controls/keys can be programmed and used for one vehicle. If you misplace a key, take the other keys to an authorized Volvo retailer for reprogramming as an antitheft measure.
    If two of the keys to your vehicle are close together, e.g., on the same key ring, when you try to start the vehicle, this could cause interference in the immobilizer system and result

    in the vehicle not starting. If this should occur, remove one of the keys from the key ring before trying to start the vehicle again.

    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.

    Remote controls
    Your vehicle is equipped with two coded remote control transmitters with integrated ignition keys called Key Integrated Remote (KIR). These transmitters use a radio frequency that will enable you to lock/unlock all doors and the tailgate from a distance of 10-15 feet (3-5 meters).
    The transmitters will also activate or allow "keyless" entry into the passenger compartment or the tailgate. They will also activate or deactivate your vehicle's alarm system(s). The vehicle can also be locked/ unlocked with the key.

    1. Fold key in/out
    2. Lock
    3. Approach lighting
    4. "Panic" function
    5. Unlock tailgate
    6. Unlock
    If one of the transmitters is misplaced, contact your nearest authorized Volvo retailer for replacement.

    Using the remote control
    Button 1:
    Press to extend the key. This button must also be pressed when the key is folded back into the slot in the side of the remote control unit.

    Button 4 (Panic): See page 111 for more information on this function.

    Button 5 (Tailgate unlock): Press this button to unlock the tailgate (without unlocking the other doors).

    NOTE: This function will not open the tailgate.

    Button 6 (Unlock): Press this button once to unlock the driver's door only. Wait for at least 1 second and press the button again (within 10 seconds) to unlock all doors, and the tailgate.

    NOTE:

  • If an airbag deploys, your vehicle's SRS control module will attempt to automatically unlock all 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 vehicle, make a habit of always locking the vehicle with the remote control.
  • If the key blade section of the remote is not fully folded out when starting the vehicle, the immobilizer function may make it impossible to start the engine.
  • The vehicle can be locked even if a door is open. When the door(s) are closed, they will be locked. Please be aware that the keys could be locked in the car when this is done.

    Automatic re-locking
    If the doors are unlocked, the locks will automatically reengage (re-lock) and the alarm will rearm after 2 minutes unless a door or the tailgate has been opened. This helps prevent the car from inadvertently being left unlocked.

    Keys and remote controls

    warningWARNING!

    Never use the transmitter to lock the doors from inside the vehicle.

    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 moonroof 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 vehicle.

    Disabled features would remain disabled until the remote is used again to unlock the vehicle.
    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:
    - Carefully pry open the rear edge of the cover with a small screwdriver.
    - Insert a new 3-volt, CR2032 battery, with the battery's plus side up. Avoid touching the contact surfaces of the battery with your fingers.
    - Press the cover back into place. Ensure that the rubber seal is correctly positioned to help keep out moisture.

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