This is not a cheap key to get a duplicate of, unfortunately, the key has to be cut by the VIN number, and programmed with software into the Central Electric Module or CEM. There is no way around this, and the only place that can do this is likely the dealership, unless you have a local automotive locksmith that has invested in the equipment to program keys for Volvo, (which is called VADIS) I doubt seriously they can do Volvo's, but if you live in a big city it's possible. Most of them can program domestic vehicles now, but not imports. Last time I priced a key it was 280$. so I would say anywhere from 250-350 depending on your area. you might inquire at a automotive locksmith shop and get it less, but again that is only if they have invested in the equipment to program Volvo keys. Does that answer your question? thank you.
