Detachable key blade

The remote key contains a detachable metal key blade that can be used to activate a number of functions and preform certain actions.

A Volvo workshop can provide you with the key blade's unique code, which is recommended in case you need to order a new key blade.

Using the detachable key blade

The detachable key blade can be used to
  • manually open the left-side front door if central locking cannot be activated with the remote key
  • emergency lock all doors
  • activate/deactivate the rear door mechanical child safety locks.

The button-less key1 does not have a detachable key blade. If needed, use the standard remote key's detachable key blade.
