Volvo XC90: Activating and deactivating private locking - KEY, LOCKS AND ALARMVolvo XC90: Activating and deactivating private locking

Private locking is activated using the function button in the center display and a PIN code.

NOTE

For the valet lock function to be activated the car must be in at least ignition mode I.

Two codes are used for private locking:

  • A security code, which is created the first time the function is used.
  • A PIN code, which is changed each time the function is activated.

Entering security code before initial use

The first time the function is used, a security code must be selected. This code can then be used to deactivate private locking if the selected PIN code has been forgotten or lost. The security code functions as a PUK (security) code for all PIN codes used for private locking.

Save the security code in a safe place.

To create a security code:

  1. Tap the button for private locking in Function view.
