Detachable key blade

The remote control key contains a detachable key blade of metal with which a number of functions can be activated and some operations carried out.

The key blade's unique code is provided by authorised Volvo workshops, which are recommended when ordering new key blades.

The key blade's application areas

Using the remote control key's detachable key blade
  • the left-hand1 front door can be opened manually if central locking cannot be activated with the remote control key
  • all doors are emergency-locked
  • the rear doors' mechanical child lock can be activated and deactivated.
  • disarm the alarm and start the car by fitting the key in the back-up reader in the tunnel console.

The button-less key2 does not have a detachable key blade. If necessary, use the detachable key blade from the normal remote control key.
