Re: extra key with fobb (carlflug)

1.) Yes the dealers order the keys from volvo with your key code they are laser cut. If they are ordered by 3:00pm pacific time they will arrive the next day. The cost of the key is $55.95. then they have to program the key to the vehicle with a software. The cost of the software is $32.40. Plus any labor charge the dealership will have, usually is 1/2 hour.<p>2.)The dealers should stock the keyless entry remote. The cost of the remote is $94.86 and that will have to be programmed with a seperate software $32.40. And the dealer may include the labor with the 1/2 on the key or may chage another 1/2 hour to program the remote.<br><BR><BR>

Re: extra key with fobb (stiman23)

I was quoted $195.00 to MATE the key/remote combo to the car. I purchased the key from them, & the remote off e-bay. I was expecting $50-75.00 but this is outrageous <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> I guess i'll eventually end up spending the cash, but this kind of garbage is turning me against teh Marque.

Re: extra key with fobb (JRL)

They have me by the short hairs! Can't find an indy with the proper hardware to do it, & there is only one other dealer in town. Going to check w them, but expect pretty much the same result. I know the software is ~$25.00 which is BS, but I accept that, but $150.00 to plug it into the computer for 10min is just an old fashoned raping!
