Question about 2007 Volvo S80 V8 Sedan

1 Answer

Key Error This is the second time that I have inserted my key in the ignition and have gotten a "Key Error Reinsert Key" message. The first time this happened was approximately 3-4 months ago (the car was still under warrantee: It is now 1 month out of warrantee) and the dealership replaced the whole ignition "box". Is there something I can do to get the car to work without bringing it in to the dealership?

1998 Lexus Gs300 alarm "anti theft system" arms


Hello! Lets eliminate a potential cause: There is a Technical Service Bulletin (EL-00198) that addresses key-ring interference with the Transponder Chip in the key...A touchy anti-theft system to say the least...The key-ring should not rest on or come in contact with the key grip area...Do not place any other keys on a ring with the ignition key...Actually, in order to function properly the ignition key needs to be *****...As in nothing on or near the key...I'm not saying this is your fault but it needs to be removed as a potential cause..See additional FYI information below on how to add or delete an ignition key from your vehicle's system...BELOW IS A LINK TO A SITE THAT HAS A BYPASS MODULE FOR YOUR Gs-300....Guru...Saailer

The key symbol appears


That's your immobilizer system light:
The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded master or valet key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start.
If an improperly coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.
The system may not recognize your key’s coding if another immobilizer key or other metal object is near the ignition switch when you insert the key. To make sure the system recognizes the key code:
Do not keep other immobilizer keys on the same key ring.
Use a plastic or leather key fob, not metal.
Keep other keys away from your vehicle’s key and the ignition switch while trying to start the engine.
Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it. Electrical problems could result that may make your car undriveable.
This indicator will also blink several times when you turn the ignition switch from ON (II) to ACCESSORY (I) or LOCK (0).
If the system repeatedly does not recognize the coding of your key, contact your Honda dealer.
If you have lost your key and you cannot start the engine, contact your Honda dealer.
Hope this lets you understand the light, and what should be happening.

How to fix remote car key


1.Insert key in ignition and pull out
2. Within 5 seconds, insert the key in the ignition and pull out again.
3. Within 40 seconds, close and open the driver's door twice, then insert and remove the key from the ignition again.
4. Within 40 more seconds, close and open the driver's door twice, then insert the key in the ignition and close the driver's door.
5. Turn ignition switch from LOCK to ON to OFF three times, leaving the key on for one second and off for one second each time.
6. Remove the key from the ignition lock.

The doors will lock and unlock themselves at about 2 second intervals. The number of times that the doors lock is the number of remotes that are programmed into the car. If the car locks/unlocks 5 times, there are no codes registered.

1999 olds aurora when you turn the key just says clean key wait 3 minutes


the key has magnet on it that may be weakening. It will have to be reprogrammed.

  1. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
  2. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
  3. Insert a new Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime will sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off. The new key has been programmed.
