Get New Keys Today! (323) 538-3170volvo-logoThere are various different types of Volvo car keys out there. Understanding about what each type of key can offer you will help you to make informed choices when you use our services. Below, you will find a handy overview of the main types of Volvo car keys on the market, as well as an explanation of how these different key types work and what benefits they offer.

Remote control car keys.

volvo-keyThese are some of the most common types of Volvo car keys. Remote control car keys use radio signals to tell your Volvo to lock or unlock when you press the appropriate button. These keys are battery operated and so it is important to ensure that the batteries are replaced when required. The advantage of using these types of car keys is the fact that they enable you to lock and unlock your car from a distance. If the radio signals are a little weak, though (for instance, due to the batteries going flat), you will usually find that you need to operate the key in close proximity to your vehicle.

Transponder car keys.

These keys are equipped with an electronic chip that contains a code. Your vehicle’s immbolizer system reads the code when you insert the key. These car keys are nice and secure, as they rely on cryptographic codes. However, if anything happens to the transponder and you need a replacement key, your vehicle’s entire immobilizer system will often have to be reprogrammed in order to accept the new code associated with a new key. This is something that we can definitely help you with.

Regular car keys.

Older Volvo vehicles are often equipped with regular ‘manual’ or ‘analog’ keys which do not use any specific technology, and which are designed simply to be inserted into the vehicle’s locks. These keys are relatively easy to replace. Though, of course, with some of the older models they can be pretty rare and interesting items.

Master keys.

Not all Volvo vehicles have master keys. Older models are more likely to be sold with a master key, whilst newer models will usually just have their cryptographic information stored securely on a central database. The purpose of a master key is to enable a car dealer to create a replacement key for you if you lose your car keys. Master keys are generally kept separate from the keys that you actually use to unlock and start your vehicle. If you have a master key and lose your car keys, simply bring the master key in to our dealership and we will be able to recreate your car keys for you. If you lose the master key itself, then this is a more complex operation (as it involves overhauling the vehicle’s entire security system) but we will still be happy to help you. If your vehicle did not come with a master key then it is most likely that we will be able to find the security details for your car’s immobilizer system in the secure database where details of Volvo vehicles’ security details are kept.
