Locking and unlocking

Activating and deactivating private locking

Updated 1/21/2020

Activating and deactivating private locking

Private locking is activated with a function button in the centre display and an optional PIN code.

Note

The car needs to be in ignition mode I as a minimum for the private locking function to be activated.

Private locking has two codes:

  • A security code is created the first time the function is used.
  • A new PIN code is selected every time the function is activated.

Enter the security code before using for the first time

A security code needs to be selected during the first time the function is used. It can then be used to deactivate private locking if the selected PIN code has been forgotten or lost. The security code acts as a PUK code for all subsequent PIN codes set for the private locking function.

Save the security code in a safe place.

To create a security code:

Press the button for private locking in the function view.

Enter the preferred security code and press Confirm.

The security code is saved. The private locking function is now ready for activation.

Forgotten PIN code

If the PIN code has been forgotten or the wrong PIN code has been entered more than three times, the security code can be used to deactivate private locking.

If the car is unlocked via Volvo On Call* or the Volvo On Call app, private locking will be deactivated automatically.

Forgotten security code

If the security code has also been forgotten, contact an authorised Volvo dealer for help with deactivating private locking.
