Can’t unlock your Volvo because the key fob battery is dead? Learn how to unlock your Volvo using the emergency key on the key fob.

This guide provides instructions on unlocking the Volvo door and getting inside the car if a Volvo battery is dead or the key fob is not working. Here’s the step-by-step process of how to unlock a Volvo when the battery is dead.

  1. Remove the emergency key from the keyfob.


  2. Insert the metal key at the bottom of the door handle on the driver’s door and remove the plastic cover. This will expose the key tumbler.

Insert the key in the keyhole and turn it.

Unlock the driver’s door and get inside the car.

 If the vehicle has a dead battery, jump-start the car. Jump starting terminals are in the engine bay. Pull the lever on the left-hand side of the steering wheel to open the hood and locate the Positive (+) terminal near the driver’s strut tower. You may need to press the START button with the key fob to start the engine.

All Volvo key fobs have the emergency key inside to manually unlock the driver’s door. For example, if the car battery dies or the remote stops working. The first thing you need to do is remove the emergency key from the key fob. There will be a spring-loaded catch on the side that you slide to open the key fob and remove the emergency key.

If you find that your key fob isn’t working, but you know that your car battery isn’t dead, this means that your key fob battery has died. Replace the key fob battery.
