Re: when i lock or unlock my car the drivers side...
There is a Volvo service bulletin on this as a problem. You should have your dealer fix this under the conditions of the Technical Service Bulletin that they they have for this. The service may be free.

if the key wont unlock the door and the fob does then the linkage from the lock to the key has come apart, as the fob is actuating the electric motor , will need to strip out door panel to see where the connecting rod has got to
First of all, check ACC fuse in the driver side junction box. The central controller for power door locks is the body ECU. From your description it may be working only partially. Can the doors be locked using a key? If so, this would indicate the actual locking mechanism is OK. Do the front door lock control switches lock the doors?
reprogram the remote transmitter. first leave driver door open all other doors closed,key removed from the ignition switch. insert key into the ignition switch,then remove it.press lock and unlock on the vechicle door lock control switch at 1 second intervals 5 times. close and repoen drivers door.press lock and unlock on the vechicle lock control switch at 1 second intervals 5 times. insert key into ignition switch. switch ignition on and off twice to program a remote transmitter code whilst erasing the original codes or three timre to check how many remote transmitters are currently registered.remove key from the ignition switch.system should now lock and unlock.twice to indicate programming mode or one to four times,slowly to indicate number of remote transmitters registered.for the solara press and hold lock and unlock remote buttons together, press lock remote button for a second period of 1 second. system should now lock and unlock vechicle.once to confirm, twice to indicate registration has failed.if required repeat button procedure to program remaining remote transmitters.note to exit programming mode close drivers door or insert ignition key.maximum of 4 remote transmitters can be programmed.if akk failed let dealership reprogram remote transmitters.
hi you can do this but you will have to have a key that does not have a remote/fob on it ( basically just go get one cut cheaply ) then to reprogram keys/key fob's
first using the key without fob, turn ignition on ( do not turn over, just to position 2)
then lock drivers door with other key ( do not use fob, just the key itself with fob
now complete the following within 30 seconds
within 5 seconds( of locking the car) press the unlock button on the first key once ( this programs that key as key memory1)
the indicators should flash once to indicate signal received
wait 5 seconds then press unlock on key fob
vehicle should then unlock meaning key fob has been programmed and programming ended
open door turn ignition off , and that's it, it should work if you have more than 1 key with fob, do the same as above but instead of pressing unlock once, you do it twice, if third key 3 x if fourth key 4 x etc etc,
should not be using fob buttons for entry or locking for emergency only .if keyless entry walk up to car with fob do not press any buttons see if door opens then walk away from car with fob about 20m then go back to car without fob and see if door locked if so all working fine .indicators will not flash if the above dont work take back to main dealer for diagnostics keys may need to be reprogrammed
You should not have to reset the key fob after a battery replacement. The signal from the key fob stays the same and is programed to the reciever.
If the key fob needs to be reprogrammed then follow these steps.
1. Have all key fobs with you during programming.
2. Sit in the vehicle with all doors closed.
3. Lock all doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door.
4. Insert and withdraw the ignition key 7 to 9 times within 10 seconds (do not turn the key, just insert and withdraw).
5. The 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once or twice.
6. Insert the ignition key and turn it on (key on, engine off).
7. Press any button on one remote and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
8. If you have more key fobs to program use the Lock/Unlock button on the door to unlock the doors and then lock the doors.
9. Press any button on the next key fob and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
10. Repeat if you have more key fobs. Only 5 can be programmed.
11. To exit, simply turn of the igniton and remove the ignition key.
12. Unlock the doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door and exit the vehicle.
13. Make sure the window is down when testing remotes in case you leave the keys inside.
14. Close all doors and test all remotes that were programmed.
Do not skip any steps or the process will not work.
If the 4 way flasher indicator does not work when inserting the key, you will need to start the process from the begining. If it still does not work the receiver may be your problem.
If the 4 way flasher indicator does not flash when pressing any button on the key fob then the key fob is the problem (dead battery or defective remote)
The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).
Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep
Seating in the drivers seat , make sure all doors are closed.Insert key into ignition, don't turn on yet. Wait for the dome light to go out, then press and hold the door unlock button , make sure it is UNLOCK, while turning the key ON OFF ON OFF Twice , do not engage the started, just on to the point of being on. Release the unlock button,and your doors should lock, then unlock indicating programming mode.At this point hold down both the lock and unlock button on the key fob. After 30 seconds your locks should lock and unlock, indicating the fob is programmed. This must be repeated for all remotes, whether or not it be new or old. After all remotes are programmed, turn the key off and on again to exit programming mode.
