1 Make sure all doors are closed, as well as the hood. Make sure the tailgate or trunk is locked. Get into the car and lock all doors.
2 Insert the key and turn it from the insertion position (position I) to the "on" position (position II - not the "start" position) five times. In other words, all the dash lights come on, but the engine doesn’t start. When you turn the key to ON the fifth time, leave it there. You have 10 seconds to perform this whole step.
3 Hold down each remote button for a second or two, so the car identifies those buttons as the ones to respond to. If you want multiple remotes to work for that car, you’ll need to hit the buttons on each of them in rapid succession (all within 5 seconds) as well. You can program up to three remotes per car.
4 Get new batteries if the above doesn’t work, and try it again. If you already have new batteries in the remote, then proceed to the next step.
5 Press and hold down the odometer reset button.
6 Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position.
7 Release the odometer button while the service reminder light (SRL) flashes. Don’t wait until the flashing stops to release the odometer button. If you did that, you waited too long.
8 Turn the ignition off.
WE HAVE HAD MANY PEOPLE STATE THAT THESE PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT WORK. WE FOUND THIS INFORMATION ON A VOLVO FORUM:
There is a software that needs to be downloaded to the car. When the remote is purchased at the dealer it comes in a plastic package. That plastic package has a sticker on it. The sticker contains id codes.
There are two codes one is 16 digits/letters and the second one is 8 digits/letters.
Without this sticker the dealership can not program the remote/key to the car. If you buy a key elsewhere, make sure it has the codes included.
Unfortunately you cannot program a remote yourself.
