Lost the key to S40 - nned to "program" with computer. Need help

We live in The Bahamas ans can not find anyone that can reprogram a key for a 1999 S40. Japan wants me to ship it back over with all the associated paperwork to "prove" it is not stolen.
Any suggestions?

    I tried the dealer in Miami and his software only goes back to 2000.

    I have even offered to pay to fly a tech over with the laptop and pay a full days wages and then some to make it worthwhile to the Dealer.

    The dealers in FLL have not returned my inquiries (Holman, Margate and Maroone Volvo). I will keep trying.

    thank you

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.

hope this fixes it. jeff

Can you rekey a new ignition key to the original key on a 1999 town car

Maybe. If you have two keys that are already programmed into the computer you can add a third. If not, you'll need a very good locksmith or the dealer with the scanner to change the computer settings.

I lost the keys to my 1999 ford ranger xlt. i want to know how i can bypass the chip in the key that tells the alarm that its ok for the truck to start. need my work vehicle please help anyone. thanx

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.

Lost original car alarm control... need to reset a new one...

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..( 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 try.

7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start 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

2001 Volvo S40 missing key/remote

You car has an integrated key and remote.

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.

1999 Volvo V70 - did NOT come with the elctronic key fob. I have seen the exact same fob on ebay, for about $30, which I then take to be programmed at the dealers. I have heard to ask for an ADDITIONAL key...

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..
