The United states will do the samething. the volvo dealer here would need registration and proof of ownership first to cut or reprogram and key. they need the vin number. i would suggest maybe next time in florida, you can do this.

Technically you can't. The computer will not power up the coil and injectors without that chip. You can add a new chip as long as you have the old one, but it takes a dealer or really good locksmith to cut a new key with the original chip, or reprogram the system for a new key.
go to a key cutter and they will cut a key for the van and reprogram it all at the same time,tip to reprogram put key into drivers door or ign and push any button and hold for 30 seconds and the system will reset.please rate this advice.adrian,,,,,,,,,
programing a Nissan remote , is hidden secret by Nissan Dealers. As a Nissan Technician i will share it.
Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch ,
lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and
insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but
consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard
lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion ..
Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion
.. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..(
note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you
don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one ,
turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you
are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you
hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key
still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit
Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd
remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and
6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.
7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.
8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second
9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle
confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and
9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.
You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works
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.
dont do the ebay thing. once a key has been programmed for a car. it cannot be reprogrammed for YOUR car. you have to go to the dealer.
in this case the dealer has got you!
people sell thier car and keep the extra key. then sell them on ebay. the ebay key will be of no use to your car. but people will buy the keys anyway in desparation because the dealerships charge soo soooo much..
