Two types of code are involved when using valet locking:
- A security code that you enter when you use the function for the first time
- A PIN that is a single-use code - you choose a new PIN each time you activate valet locking
If you forget your PIN, or if the wrong PIN is entered three times, use the security code as a recovery code. Therefore, save the security code in a safe place.
Choosing security code
To select your security code the first time you use valet locking:
1. Press Private Locking in the center display's function view.
2. Choose a security code in the pop-up window that appears and press Confirm.
Using valet locking
After choosing your security code, you can start using valet locking. Activate/deactivate the function in the center display's function view as follows:
1. Press Private Locking to activate/deactivate valet locking.

If you have forgotten your PIN code, you can deactivate private locking using the security code you entered when you activated the function for the first time. If you have forgotten your security code, contact an authorized Volvo dealer for assistance with unlocking.
