The information below helps you understand how the deadlock feature works on most Volvo's.
Deadlocks means that all door handles are mechanically disengaged, which prevents doors being opened from the inside.
The deadlocks are activated with the remote control key and are set after an approx. ten seconds delay after the doors have been locked.
The car can only be unlocked with the remote control key when the deadlocks function is activated. The front left door can also be unlocked with the detachable key blade.
Active menu options are indicated with a cross.
If someone is going to stay in the car but the doors must be locked from the outside, then the deadlocks function can be temporarily switched off, which is carried out in the menu system MY CAR. For a detailed description of the menu system, see MY CAR.
In MY CAR one of the following options can be selected:
- Activate once: - The combined instrument panel then shows Locks and alarm Reduced guard and deadlocks are switched off when the car is locked, only at this time. (Note that the alarm's movement and tilt detectors* are switched off at the same time.)
During the next time the engine is started, the system is reset to zero and the combined instrument panel shows the message Locks and alarm Full guard at which the deadlocks and the alarm's movement and tilt detectors are re-engaged.
- Ask on exit: - Each time the engine is switched off, the driver must answer the question
Activate Reduced Guard until engine has started again?.
