Option 1: Abrites Diagnostics for Volvo is well-known (Google is your friend to have Abrites Diagnostics for Volvo.)

Option 2: Lonsdor K518ISE Volvo key programmer (Newest tool by Lonsdor and much cheaper)

Can’t find Lonsdor K518ISE in any shop. Its released?

Yes, here:

Update firmware & software on official site: I can gather that it reads data with a programmer first. Then you sent the data to the support team. They will convert it for you.


Lonsdor K518ISE does:

FYI, the diagnostic box have just released a programmer with volvo coverage , this one gets released next week but im told was being demonstrated at mla show last weekend , also AD are reported to be releasing volvo coverage on their new smart pro being released at end of year , also abrites are adding to their volvo coverage , so at some point you will become spoilt for choice on volvo.


Anyway, Lonsdor K518ISE key programmer for Volvo is working & cheaper one to be your choice.
