Replaced car battery- key fobs don't work.....

Post by olddaddy » Thu May 16, 2019 6:08 pm

I put a new battery in our 2015 V60 today and afterwards the key fobs won't lock the car anymore. The car starts normally, but will not lock or unlock with the fob......Any ideas? I read over the owners manual and saw nothing.

I posted this last night because my experience with Volvo is that the small things tend to be complicated. The car actually healed itself overnight. What I discovered was that when my wife’s rescue person on the road side pulled the jump kit out of the spare tire well the cover was pulled out underneath the liftgate. This was Preventing the liftgate from fully closing which prevented the key fob from locking the car. Glad it’s solved I appreciate the forum thanks everyone.
