My keyless entry for my 2008 Volvo s 40 won't work. I've tried replacing the battery but it still doesn't work. Anything I may can do before spending money on a new key.?

How are you trying to open the door , button on key fob ? With this system you can pull up on the drivers handle an it activates Antennas in the external side door handles (C30/C70 front doors, S40/V50 rear doors)
  • Antennas in the passenger compartment and cargo compartment
  • An antenna in the rear bumper
  • Quick lock motors in the lock units in the side doors
  • The remote keyless entry (RKE) receiver receives a signal from the key
  • The switch in the clutch pedal (manual transmissions) or a signal from the brake pedal switch via the central electronic module (CEM) (automatic transmissions)
  • Key-in switch.
  • Switch in door handle and lock button on handle .
    If a door handle is pulled outward, a switch closes that wakes up the system and activates the antennas in the handles on the side where the handle has been pulled out. If a valid key is within a radius of approx. 1.5 metres from the handle, the relevant door will open and the vehicle will unlock one or several doors. Which doors are unlocked depends on the settings for the system. The vehicle can also be unlocked if the handle is affected on the tailgate.

    I have a 1990 ford tempo, and a father who tells me the switch inside the steering column is broken for the tern signal. can someone explain to me how it would have broken, and what the switch dose?

    If its the cam gear that cancels the turn signal, its plastic simply holding the turn signal handle in an on position while continuing to turn the wheel the other way can break it, if the turn signals are not working at all the flasher could be bad or the switch itself needs replaced, again its plastic and mechanical items wear and break.

    The handle that you grab to turn on the signal is part of the switch. It all has to be replaced. It's right under the steering column cover. There are three or four screws on the bottom of the cover, there are usually two screws that hold the switch on to the columnn

    Turn signal handle broke off and is hanging by wires

    You can buy the turn signal switch at Napa or other auto parts stores. It's a combination switch. Remove the steering wheel and remove the 2 screws that hold the turn signal switch on, unplug the wires and installation is reverse of removal.

    Since the lights themselves work there is not a power or fuse issue. Therefore it must be at the switch, which leaves either of three options:
    1. Least likely: Turnsignal stalk is not getting power, which comes from the ignition key/switch. See it it works with the key on, but before cranking the engine. test to see if it works with the key in the ACC mode. If these work, then the connection from the ignition switch to power the stalk when running is disconnected.
    2. Likely: The stalk switch is not connected properly or a connection has come off. Check all electrical connections to the stalk switch unit in the steering column.
    3. Most likely: The stalk switch itself is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced. Replacements can be found at (in order of most-to-least expensive) at your dealer, at (or similar online parts stores) or at your local pick-and-pull dismantlers. Check eBay in case the part is listed there, but it's unlikely.
    Hope this helps.
