Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

The 850 passed state inspection and emissions testing with flying colors at 65328 miles on the odometer. At 65450 miles the engine cooling fan wasn’t shutting off when turning the ignition off. It would continue to run for about a full minute before turning off. I replaced the fan relay and the cool...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Oil change today at just over 64,500 miles and finally figured out the keyless entry. Posted a write up for anybody else trying to figure theirs out. https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=91285&p=521974#p521974 If I understand your post correctly, your 1996 850 has less than ...

Re: 1996 Volvo 850 GLT - 2 step central locking (keyless?) entry

I'm glad you managed to work it out. I've just managed to get mine working too. I keep unlocking and locking it as I walk past, just because I can. Both my previous 850 (purchased in February 2014) and the current one (June 2018) came without working remotes. There was a non-functioning one with th...

Re: 1996 Volvo 850 GLT - 2 step central locking (keyless?) entry

Didn’t give up on this and got the keyless entry to work on the ‘96 850 GLT. Found some helpful info here and used a couple of his photos for this post: https://volvo850wagon.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/90-adding-keyless-entry-part-1/ I did not have the black box receiver behind the glovebox. Removed t...

Re: 1996 Volvo 850 GLT - 2 step central locking (keyless?) entry

AFAIK that remote is for 1998 and later cars only. Check the fitment tab in this IPD listing: https://www.ipdusa.com/products/4818/115608-volvo-alarm-remote-key-fob-cover-4-button-with-buttons-aftermarket-vr946-9166200 Ok... so I purchased the remote. Found one for less than $30. Went through the p...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Went back to the pick a part yard and pulled the exhaust from the ‘97 850. A very well spent $27 I think!

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Swapped out the beige speaker covers with the gray from the donor car I took the carpet out of. I’m liking the contrast of the gray and beige interior.

Re: 1996 Volvo 850 GLT - 2 step central locking (keyless?) entry

The late 96 and all 97 850s don't have the box behind the glovebox, it is under the dash somewhere. They all use the same remote which looks like this: remote.jpg It is programmed to the car as follows: Programming a transmitter If you purchase additional transmitters (max. 4), they must be program...
