Double lock*

Double lock means that all opening handles are disengaged mechanically, which prevents door opening from the inside when the car is locked from the outside.

Double locks are activated with the remote control key and in keyless locking (Passive Entry)*. Double locks are activated with a delay of about 10 seconds after the doors have locked.

If a door is opened within the delay time then the sequence is interrupted and the alarm is deactivated.


  • Remember that the alarm is activated when the car is locked.
  • If any of the doors are opened from the inside then the alarm is triggered.

The car can only be unlocked with the remote control key, keyless unlocking or the Volvo On Call* app when double locks are activated.

The front left door can also be unlocked with the detachable key blade. If the car is unlocked with the detachable key blade, the alarm will be triggered.


Do not allow anyone to remain in the car without first deactivating the double lock in order to avoid the risk of anyone being locked in.
