Lonsdor K518ISE Volvo V60 2011-2017 Keyless-go Operation Guide

An increasing number of locksmiths use Lonsdor K518ISE / K518S to program Volvo V60 /V40 keys etc successfully as what Lonsdor advertised. Then how it works on Volvo keys? The following paragraphs are available with the operation guide of Lonsdor K518ISE VOLVO V60 2011-2017 Keyless-go key programming.

 

VOLVO V60 Function:

  1. Add smart key: Add a smart key or program on all key lost.
  2. Delete smart key: Delete the already programmed smart key.
  3. Read the CEM secure data: Dismantle & read CEM to backup security data (this is a must before programming).
  4. Read the KVM secure data: Dismantle & read KVM to backup security data (this is a must before programming).
  5. Key identification and unlocking: To detect whether the key is a new unused one. If the remote control is invalid after programming (on condition that the battery has been installed and the remote frequency is correct), try to import the CEM secure data to unlock the key and program again after unlocking. Please not it can only unlock the CEM secure data of the vehicle or corresponding vehicle.
  6. Module identification: Identify the body CEM / KVM module status, please do this before all the operation. This function can ensure the module status, and distinguish between smart key and keyless-go. In addition, when the secure data backup is completed, and the module has been installed where it should be, please perform “module identification” again just in case and then proceed programming.

 

Note:

  1. When programming Volvo 6-button keys, please be sure to dismantle & read the CEM and KVM first, as to their location and how to read, please refer to the “Operation” or “Reference”.

 

  1. First time to use the KPROG-2 Adapter, you need to bind it with K518. Go to the

K518 home page and choose “Settings -> Bind adapter”, following the

instruction to finish binding. One K518 host can bind up to 5 adapters, and the bound adapter cannot be bound to other K518 hosts. Once bound, no need to bind again.

 

  1. For the 6-button key, you need to dismantle & read the CEM in the co-driver storage box,as well as the KVM in the right trunk to backup secure data.
