1 Make sure all doors are closed, as well as the hood. Make sure the tailgate or trunk is locked. Get into the car and lock all doors.

2 Insert the key and turn it from the insertion position (position I) to the "on" position (position II - not the "start" position) five times. In other words, all the dash lights come on, but the engine doesn't start. When you turn the key to ON the fifth time, leave it there. You have 10 seconds to perform this whole step.

3 Hold down each remote button for a second or two, so the car identifies those buttons as the ones to respond to. If you want multiple remotes to work for that car, you'll need to hit the buttons on each of them in rapid succession (all within 5 seconds) as well. You can program up to three remotes per car.

4 Get new batteries if the above doesn't work, and try it again. If you already have new batteries in the remote, then proceed to the next step.

5 Press and hold down the odometer reset button.

6 Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position.

7 Release the odometer button while the service reminder light (SRL) flashes. Don't wait until the flashing stops to release the odometer button. If you did that, you waited too long.

8 Turn the ignition off.

Seperate key fobs only can be programmed in the following way.

Turn ignition on/off 8 x times (allow all functions to stabilise) after the 9th on - press a button on both remote fobs. then turn ign. off. use good remote to lock and then try new remote to unlock/lock. sometimes it works first time - sometimes you have to repeat actions. good luck.

SOURCE: reprogram key fob

Here is a quick HowTo on programming your own keyless entry:

1) Turn ignition to OFF.
2) Locate the Data Link Connector, its a black 16 pin connecter that is under the driver's side dash, right where your right knee would be. You have to look up into the dash from below to see it.
3) Ground pin 1 of the Data Link Connector by taking a wire or paper clip and running it from pin 1 to pin 4. Pin 4 is ground so you can just short pin 1 to 4 and it will be grounded. Grounding pin 1 tells the system you are ready to reprogram it.
4) Close all of your doors.
5) Turn the key to ACC then back off. The power door locks will lock/unlock. This is the signal that the system is ready for reprogramming.
6) Push a button on your key fob, doesn't matter which button.
7) If you have 2 key fobs, then press a button on the 2nd fob within 1 minute of pressing a button on the 1st fob. Both must be programmed at the same time. If you only have 1 fob then press a button 2 more times to signal that you only have one.
8) The doors will lock/unlock to signal the codes were received.
9) Remove the jumper wire from the data connector.
10) your done

How to program new key for volvo 2007 s40

You can't program a Volvo S40 keyless entry remote. The module requires a dealer tool for synchronization. If your remote isn't working, try replacing the battery. If that doesn't help, contact a Volvo dealer to set up an appointment to have the remote programmed. The instructions previously published on this page were inaccurate, according to several readers. Please contact The Remote Guy if you know how to program the S40 remote.

My car volvo s40 saying Remote batry low voltage

It sounds to me like the problem is exactly as it's stated - the batteries in your key fob are low. In case you don't know, the electronic fob used to lock and unlock (and in some instances pop the trunk or start the car, if so equipped) runs on batteries. Just like everything that runs on batteries, the shelf life is not infinite. I would suggest researching what battery is inside of your key fob and how to open it. If this isn't something you are comfortable doing (yes, I admit, opening something that small isn't for everyone), you can take the fob into a Volvo dealership or in some cases another qualified service center and they can replace it.

I had disconected a battery overnight. My key fob hasn't worked ewer since. What can I do?

When the battery was disconnected the computer lost it memory and it has to be programed with a Volvo Scan tool. There are other computer relearn procedures for vehicle or system operation. These may include:

Initial control unit programing

Traction control yaw sensor initializing

Multiplex communication

Anti-theft system or engine immobilizer system passwords
