Remote control key
The remote control key is not physically used when starting since the car is equipped with support for keyless starting (Passive Start) as standard. The key needs to be located in the front of the passenger compartment, e.g. in the driver’s pocket or in the cup holder in the tunnel console, to be able to start the engine. See the section "Starting the engine".
As an option, keyless locking/unlocking of doors and tailgate (Passive Entry*) is also available. The key then has a range extending in a semicircle with a radius of approx. 1.5 metres out from the driver's door and approx. 1 metre out from the tailgate. See the section "Remote control key range".
With keyless starting and keyless locking/unlocking, the remote control key can be located anywhere in the passenger compartment or the cargo area while maintaining engine starting functionality.
Button-less key (Key Tag)
For cars equipped with keyless locking/unlocking*, a slightly smaller, lighter and button-less key (Key Tag) is supplied. It works the same way as the normal remote control key when it comes to keyless starting and locking/unlocking. It has no detachable key blade and the battery cannot be replaced. A new key tag can be ordered from an authorised Volvo workshop.
Ordering additional keys
The car is supplied with two remote control keys - one key tag is supplied if the car is equipped with keyless locking/unlocking*. Additional keys can be ordered. A total of twelve keys can be programmed and used for one single car.
In the event of a lost key, see the heading "Loss of a remote control key" below.
Remote control key buttons
Remote control key functions for keyless starting and keyless locking/unlocking* can be disrupted by electromagnetic fields and screening.
If there is still interference, use the remote control key blade and then place the key in the backup reader to disarm the car. See section "Locking/unlocking with the detachable key blade".
Loss of a remote control key
If you lose a remote control key then a new one can be ordered at a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. The remaining remote control keys must be taken to the workshop. The code of the missing key must be erased from the system as a theft prevention measure.
The current number of keys registered to the car can be checked in the centre display's top view.
