Hello there,



The frantic truth is that you cannot program a remote yourself,the 2001 volvo s60 has an integrated key and remote.
There is a software that needs to be downloaded to the car.It seems you just purchased the remote.

However,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.
It's so unfortunate you cannot program a remote yourself,the programming costs between $100-$150.





Have a nice day.

SOURCE: how do I adjust the headlights on a 01 Volvo s60

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

How can I program my keyless remote for a Volvo S60 2004 without taking it to the dealer.


Sorry, the remote will need software from Volvo to get your vehicle to accept it. The only way to do this is through Volvos' Vida system. There are some independant repair shops that have Vida, and may charge less than the dealer.

My Volvo S60 Fuel flap won't lock or unlock,


The pin solenoid that activates the remote locking is not receiving any electrical signal, it must have been unhooked. This solenoid is right by the filler door, inside the boot. The alarm activates on electrical differences, such as dome light, boot light or filler door electrical demand when it is activated. Hence, the alarm wont trip off if door is opened manually from the outside.
