Locking/unlocking from the outsideUpdated 23/07/2018
The buttons on the remote control key can be used to lock/unlock all doors and the tailgate simultaneously.
It is possible to select different unlocking sequences, which can be found in the top view of the centre display. Go to .
Then select Unlock All Doors or Driver Door Only.
In order for the lock sequence to be activated, the driver's door must be closed. If any of the other doors or the tailgate is open, then they are locked. The alarm1 movement detector is only armed once they have been closed.
If it is not possible to lock/unlock with the remote control key, the battery may be discharged - in which case, lock or unlock the driver's door with the detachable key blade. See the section "Detachable key blade" for more information.
If the car is equipped with keyless locking/unlocking*, it is sufficient to have the remote control key in the vicinity e.g. in a pocket or a bag, making it more convenient to open the car if your hands are full. For information on the system's range, see the section "Remote control key range".
The outside of the door handles contains a recess for locking, while the inside contains a touch-sensitive surface for unlocking. The tailgate handle has a rubberised pressure plate that is only used for unlocking.
To close all side windows and the panorama roof* simultaneously - place a finger against the touch-sensitive recess on the outside of the door handle until all side windows and the panorama roof* are closed.
Locking the doors and tailgate
All side doors must be closed to be able to lock the car. The tailgate, on the other hand, can be open when locking the car with a side door handle.
Unlocking the doors and tailgate
Different sequences for unlocking can be selected in the centre display's top view:
Go to and select All Doors or Single Door.
If none of the doors or the tailgate is opened within two minutes of unlocking, they are locked automatically. This function prevents the car from being left unlocked unintentionally.
Remote Door Unlock (RDU)
It is possible to remotely unlock the car with the Volvo On Call* app.
