We parked our S60 next to a new S80 and locked the car with the keyfob. After shopping, we were walking to our car and the other Volvo owner couldn't unlock his car with his keyfob. Mine wouldn't work either. My car started with the key, and I left first so I don't know if he had further problems. 5 minutes later, 2 miles away, everything worked fine. Any ideas?
