'04 C70Master Key & Remotes

Post by briancmyers » Thu Nov 07, 2019 12:36 pm

Just bought a 2004 C70 and got only the Valet key. I see uncut keys and un-programmed remotes on eBay. Anyone have experience w/these items?

Welcome Brian

Post 1998, Volvo keys have to be married to the car in software called VIDA. Either a dealer or a Volvo-knowledgeable independent can do this, generally generic services or locksmiths cannot.
