What tool is good to make keys for Volvo cars, i.e XC60?
If from around 2010 models using the slot key , then many tools will do keys for these including , abrites , smart pro , TDB1000 , Autel, Yanhua ACDP
etc , but it will take up to 5 hours with battery support and tester plugged in to read data and some fail with all kit .
abrites do a stand alone dongle that isnt expensive , around £200 only , with this you can apply battery support to the vehicle , plug the dongle in and leave it in , return 5 hours later and if read successful code in the key via the dongle , but not all read 100% . This is your choice by obd .
You can also buy good eeprom reading tool , good dump tool to add keys to dump and remove and read the units from the car
or you can buy dealer tool and online access.
Test and feedback:
1). I’ve done XC60 2012 slot key AKL with Autel IM608
take out the CEM read on bench and program the key by OBD – 1 hour job
