Hi,

Take the Key and Lock / Unlock the Door for 5 times in a row with the remote. This would Reset the Immobilizer.

The most common solution for this is to get someone to plug in a computer and reset the immobilizer code, it looks like your key needs programing as well. This can be done by Volvo dealer or someone with Volvo software on their diagnostic computer. The key can only be programmed by Volvo. But before going that far, try to disconnect the negative pole on your battery for about 15 minutes, than put on the light and reconnect the lead. Sometimes this helps as well but no quarranty.

Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is


Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

What is solution for key error msg on 2004 s40?


The system should be scanned with Volvos' Vida. However, the most common problem is usually the antenna ring that is mounted around the ignition lock (where you put the key in). You should also try another key if you have one. Sometimes the key can be the problem

2005 S40 wont start. Message says key error?


Do you have the remote, i.e. The deadlock system is activated and deactivated using the remote control key fob, which allows the driver to open the car as they approach. It seems you have activated the steering lock which is for preventing thieves to make a getaway. Use the remote to deactivate it and then try starting the car.......sodeep
P.S. The security system is a built-in feature of this model

Car won't start


Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.
