Volvo VIDA/DiCE can program new keys?

Is it possible to make new keys with VOLVO VIDA?

Yes or No – that’s a question.

With the dealer Vida software, you have the luck.

Just simply need to be registered with Volvo and pay for subscriptions. Then order software and program new key(has to be brand new)

It’s not easy to make keys with Vida (2004 and up at least), though.

With dealer Vida: every key has 2 codes and you have to download software from Volvo, then put in the codes that comes with the keys and it works.

You can refer to videos via Youtube.

However, if your Dice tool is a China knock-off, NO!

That is, the simple answer is that you CANNOT do it at home with a Chinese VIDA clone.
It would be too much of a security risk.


You have another option for VOLVO key programming. That is Lonsdor K518ISE.
