1997 850 Lost Key

Post by Craigd2599 » Sat Oct 05, 2019 5:14 pm

Okay boys...
I think I know the answer to this one but:
Daughter lost her ignition key for her 1997 850. We only had one key for that car. How screwed am I?

There is no chip for pre-99 cars so no programing.

A dealer or an authorized locksmith can order a pre-cut key from Volvo. They will need the VIN number and proof of ownership. Some can cut from VIN number onsite.
