I had the problem with my S60 a while back. The Immobilizer message would not allow me to start my vehicle. I change the ignition ring and still the light would come on intermittingly. I think it was 1A auto video that gave me the information to resole the problem. Take the one wire from your starter that plugs in and clean the inner part of the female connector with small wire brush. Clean both male and female sides. Before reconnecting the wire slightly crimp the female end and reconnect. I had the problem back in 2012 and went thru many channels for a year until I saw the video. worried about getting stranded some place if the car wouldn't start. The cars has not display that message since 2013. Good Luck hopes this helps.

SOURCE: 2001 Volvo S40 missing key/remote

You car has an integrated key and remote.

There is a software that needs to be downloaded to the car. 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.

Unfortunately you cannot program a remote yourself.

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

SOURCE: I have a S80 Volvo 2000 model. I lost my spare key.

Pay the dealer the $300.00. I have been told it's worth it to have an extra set due to the computer communication of the keys with the ignition (not sure how it works exactly.) To re-key or get a new ignition costs like 1600-1800 dollars and takes approximately 10 days to even get the parts. I checked with a Volvo dealership in WA State. I am having problems with my ignition now and the keys won't come out or turn the last little click to be able to pull them out (but not all the time), also my car will turn on no problem (only have trouble getting keys out) my car just won'y go into gear, it seems it happens more frequently when it is below 55 degrees, even after the car temp guage has reached the half way mark. I have a 1999 Volvo S80 (I hate that car!)

SOURCE: immobilizer

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

Why do you have to have two programmed ignition keys in order to program a new chip key. ?


probably need to keys so that a key could be clone from a good key
if you lost a key and want a spare , there is no way around it except to buy a new fob key and have it programmed to the immobilizer system

I lost the keys, how do i get new ones or how do i unlock my car?


what year????
lost your spare, car came new with 2 keys,
never not have 2 keys, or pay the piper..
no year car stated, so that means nobody can wax accurate.
just made 3 key for my , new jeep yesterday. (proactive)
2 pods and 1 full,
my 04 (sold) GV, only one key can be programmed at a time.
but has no IMMO on car, only the door locks are dead on my spare.
the operators guide (lost that?) tells you how to get the fob programmed all by your self.
the key , any lock smith in earth can cut you a new one.
but house calls or road trips are more money. to cure that.

GV are sold all over the world. 1999 to now.
we cant guess that either and some have Immobilizers..
cant guess that either...

Lost key with fob. Spare starts it then it shuts off? Went to get spare programmed and they said they can't. Why won't my spare work


The spare key does not have the chip in it to run the vehicle. You should be able to get a new key if you can prove ownership of the vehicle

Lost both keys to my car how can I get a new key without paying loads of money


KEY ON THAT CAR NOT THAT EXPENSIVE. IT HAS TO BE ORDERED BY A DEALER. THEY WILL NEED CAR VIN# . IT WILL BE THE ORIGINAL KEY CUT. YOU DON'T HAVE TO REPLACE IGNITION LOCK OR DOOR LOCK CYLINDERS. THEN IT HAS TO BE PROGRAMMED TO IMMOBILIZER ALSO BY DEALER.

How to disable satria neo campro 1.6 alarm system?


Will do you no good. Even if you turn it off, you cannot start the car without an original key. You need to get hold of your spare key or get one made to start it. These keys has RFID immobilizer chip that has to programmed on the car to make the on board immobilizer recognize it.
