Hello, My name is ***** ***** I am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to help with your question today. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to program a remote yourself. It needs to be programmed using software at a Volvo dealer or a shop with an active VIDA subscription that allows for software downloads. The remote also must be new, as the packaging has a code on it needed by the technician.
