Lonsdor K518ise Function:

1. Add key: please first make sure if the key is a new unused one;
2. All keys lost: please first make sure if the key is a new unused one;
3. Read CEM security data: dismantle & read CEM to backup security data (make sure to backup security data before programming);
4. Key identification and unlocking: to identify if the key is a new unused one. If the remote control is invalid after key programming ( on condition that battery has been installed and the remote control frequency is correct), try to import the CEM safety data to unlock key, and program again after unlocking successful.

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 bottom “Operation” or “Reference”.
(2). 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.
(3). 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.

4. Connection among K518 host, adapter and RN-01

Operation

Read CEM security data

Volvo’s CEM is basically located behind the storage box which is in front of the co-pilot seat

How-to-use-Lonsdor-K518ISE-K518S-to-program-Volvo-V60-V40-keys-6

CEM boxes may have the same appearance, but the back of the circuit wire location is different, can be called type A and B .

How-to-use-Lonsdor-K518ISE-K518S-to-program-Volvo-V60-V40-keys-7

Type A: open the lid, pay attention to the black columns in the blue circle on the back of the circuit board, those are four positioning points, stably match them respectively with the white columns on RN-01 board.

Note: The circuit board is coated with insulating glue, it is required to use the washing plate water to wash it off the blue area of the insulation coating in the contact point (solder joint) , or power can not go through, if the needle of RN-01 board is broken, it will need to wire in the corresponding locations.

(First time to use the adapter, please bind it with K518ISE host, please refer to “Function”)

Lonsdor Operation of Volvo V60 2011-2017 Keyless-go key programming:

Option 1 method of programming process:

Use K518 adaptor to dismantle and read CEM security data, which will be saved automatically in [file/feature_35] directory in K518 memory.

Use K518 adaptor to dismantle and read KVM security data(288bytes), which will be saved automatically in [file/feature_35] directory in K518 memory.

When perform [add/delete smart key] function, select CEM security data first and KVM data, then enter [program smart key] process.

Option 2 method of programming process:

Use K518 adaptor to dismantle and read CEM security data, which will be saved automatically in [file/feature_35] directory in K518 memory.

Use external programmer to dismantle and read KVM security data(4k).

Copy the EEPROM data(read with programmer)to [file/feature_35] directory in K518 memory.

When perform [add/delete smart key] function, select CEM security data first and KVM data, then enter [program smart key] process.

Module identification

Before all operation, please connect car OBD to “Module identification”, which can detect the module (CEM/KVM) status, distinguish if the car is keyless-go(full smart key) or smart key.

Test status results:

(1) Installed. (Indicating that the corresponding module status is normal)

(2) Not installed or communication failure. (That indicates the car does not have the corresponding module, or the module status is abnormal.

When the security data is backed up completely, install back all the modules accordingly. Please do “Module identification” again, check to ensure that the module is well installed and in normal status. And then do programming operation.
