Has anyone purchased a second key, if so how much was it. My Wife and I share the car so having a proper second key is essential and I have been quoted £130 for a new one which I thought was a bit steep?

I had my care key reprogrammed by my dealer as a standard key free. There is a Volvo bulletin authorising such action.

I'm assuming that (like me) you were supplied with one standard and a care key.

A search on here (I'm on mobile at the moment) should reveal details and the "bulletin" number.

Edited to add.

Thanks Sherwood, yes one regular and one Orange key. I shall confront the dealer on Monday with the tech bulletin and see his reaction. Many thanks!

One regular full function key and the Orange Care key.

Aah, makes sense - hope you get it sorted out 👍🏻

What functions, out of interest, are you missing with the orange key ?
