Volvo key replacement

Looking to replace your lost or malfunctioning Volvo keys? Red Key LLC is here for you!

Have the keys to your Volvo gone missing or stopped working? Or, maybe you’re looking for someone who can make you a spare for a lower price than the dealership. Here at Red Key LLC, we work with Volvo owners all over Buffalo NY to solve your car key needs.

Here’s everything you need to know about Volvo key replacement.

Basics of Volvo car keys

Volvo has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to the technology of their keys. And, that’s why models made after 1998 will have either high security or keyless fobs. So, getting your Volvo key replaced will look different depending on the year of your model:

  • Before 1998. Models before 1998 typically have manual keys that can easily be replicated by our auto locksmiths. The process is simple and affordable.
 
  • From 1998 to around 2017. During this time period, most Volvos were equipped with high security transponder keys and later flip keys. Replacing them is not as simple as a manual key, but can be done by most auto locksmiths.
 
  • Modern Volvos. Car keys have advanced significantly in the last few years, meaning that Volvo now offers keyless entry fobs and care keys. These high security keys require software programming to ensure that your car’s operating system recognizes the key or fob as viable. Not every auto locksmith has the tools to reprogram modern Volvo keys, but our team at Red Key LLC can help!

Can you order a new Volvo replacement key online?

Unless you have a pre-1998 Volvo, we would not recommend ordering a replacement online. This is because most Volvo keys made since that time will require additional programming, making it easy for consumers to buy the wrong kind or a knock-off that’s not likely to work. As trained auto locksmiths, we can help you find exactly the right replacement key you need and oversee the programming to ensure that your car’s operating system accepts the new key.

Does your key need to be replaced or repaired?

If you lost your Volvo car keys, you’ll obviously need them to be replaced. But, let’s say that you have the key and it stopped working. This could be an issue with the ignition, your car’s operating system, or the key itself. In these situations, we’re happy to run a diagnostic and fix the issue if possible to save you the cost of ordering a new key.

Volvo car key duplication

While you’re getting your Volvo keys replaced, you may be wondering if it’s possible to get a spare or two! Luckily, unlike other car manufacturers, Volvo allows for a larger number of spare keys to be programmed. In fact, 12 keys can be programmed to a single car, which is one of the reasons Volvo is considered to be an excellent family vehicle.

How much does Volvo key replacement cost?

There’s no one set price for Volvo key replacement. But, here are a few factors that can help you estimate how much you may spend:

  • The year of your Volvo model. Because newer models require more advanced key reprogramming machines, you’re likely to spend more for more modern Volvo cars. For instance, a manual car key or basic transponder key can typically be replaced for around $50 to $100. High security flip keys and newer fobs are usually replaced for about $200 to $300. And keyless fobs and care keys can cost up to $500.
  • Availability of the key replacement. Another factor in your overall cost will come down to supply. Not every locksmith carries all kinds of Volvo key replacements and may need to order one for you.
  • Whether you need emergency lockout services. Red Key LLC is available 24 hours a day to respond to lockout emergencies. We may adjust our prices in order to offer faster than normal response times.
