Question about 2007 Volvo V50
Hi, the first thing i would look at would be the remote fob that opens the door if this is at fault then this will cause the problem your having.
If it was a problem with the car then volvo would have got an error code when they run a diagnostic check so this to me then point at the central locking remote being at fault.
Now depending on the alarm and imobiliser some new cars have the feature that when your driving the doors will lock to prevent people mugging you at traffic lights but if your car never used to do this then this wont be the cause.
You will probably find that either the remote has got wet or been dropped or the battery in the remote could be on its way out.
I would go back into volvo mention this to them and they should then be able to test the fob for you as the car is only couple of years old then the chances are they will check the fob for free put a sob story on tell them your really happy with the car and have never had any problems but tell them you got out of the car the other day and left your kid in the car whilst paying for fuel then you got back and your kid was locked in the car and you struggled to get in, saying this should get them testing the fob due to the concern of a child being locked in one of their cars.(it wouldnt be very good advertisement for them if you told everyone that kids can and do get locked in their cars.)
Explain to them what i told you about the fob due to the fact if your car has the remote locking then if this battery goes totally flat then the immobiliser wont switch off so your car wont start.
Also does your car have a lock door button in side on the dashboard that enables you to look all the doors at the same time let me know ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
