Pre-2001 V70/S70 Key Fob Programming

Key Fob Programing

MVS Forums member rainman

I have a 2000 Volvo V70 SE non- turbo. I purchased an oem uncut/ unprogrammed key from Tasca Auto parts. I am bringing the key to a volvo dealer to have it cut and programmed. I have read in a few different places that the 2000 V70 that has a flashing security light on the dash “does not” have to be programmed by the dealer and that I can program or link it to the key myself?

If anyone knows for certain whether it can or cannot be done by me, please let me know.

I already have the original key and 9166200 remote keyless entry, but I wanted to have a backup.

99 -2000 S and V and the 99-2004 C need VIDA. The PIN is handled through a software download and programming is done once the software PIN is obtained.

Keys on 99 and later ALL have to be programmed using VIDA. Some 98’s in Canada had immobilizer and keys have to be VST plus PIN programmed on those.

Remotes on 99 and later P1, P2, P3 all require new GENUINE remotes so that you have the programming alphanumeric code strings plus VIDA.
There is no cycle key X times, press buttons shortcut on the VGLA 800 platform cars.

I’m not an expert on this stuff but I’m pretty confident no one has escaped the dealership on the later cars… 1999-on.
