Customer Question
The key fob is...

The key fob is stuck in the hole and won't come out and no response from any function

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Volvo. The Volvo Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Went out to start the car today -- pushed the key fob in, it did not start, several messages popped up and then nothing. I cannot get the key fob to release or any other functions to work. Have a brand new battery less than two months old -- wondering if I need to try to jump start the car

Mechanic's Assistant: My old Jeep sounds like a steam radiator sometimes. It must be old age. The Volvo Mechanic will know what your noise means and what to do about it. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

What noise?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Volvo Mechanic should be aware of about your Volvo?

What noise?

You can pull slight with force you can spray slight wd40 spray but do this first before pulling than pull

You can disconnect battery take plus and minus cables off the battery . Than take plus and minus cable ends and tape them together so they touch each other for 30 min this process will make hard reset to car computers and can bring car system modules online and normal function .
