Volvo semi truck key replacement is available for basic, 4 track transponder keys, and high security laser cut keys. Being the world’s second largest semi truck manufacturer, Volvo has earned the reputation of the safest truck company available. Volvo’s sister companies Renault Trucks, Mack Trucks and UD Trucks are some of the most popular semi trucks in the United States, but what happens when you lose a key? Most of Volvo’s semi trucks use the 4 track system. This system is genius in the fact that by only using 4 tracks instead of the traditional 8, the key cuts are put at 1 : 65,536 odds that they will be the same as a different truck.
Volvo semi truck key
Older model Volvo semi truck key replacements are going to use a basic key system. This key looks almost like a filing cabinet key and uses 5-6 cuts. These keys do not need to be programmed and can generally be cut within an hour or so. Some newer models use a basic key that looks like a regular car key and needs to be cut on both sides instead of just one. Our expert locksmiths can cut these types of keys on the spot, no matter what time of day.
4 track technolog
Most models use Volvo’s patented 4 track technology to prevent unsolicited duplication or reproduction. These types of keys have 4 tracks, only 2 of which are visible. In most cases they will need to be programmed to your trucks computer in order to disengage the kill switch and allow your vehicle to start. There is a chip inside of the key that “talks” to the computer inside of the truck, relaying a code that has to match both. If it does not match, both the key and the computer will need to be reset.
Newer Volvo semi truck key
Newer Volvo semi truck key replacement is a bit different. These keys are laser cut to a sidewinder or dimple pattern, making duplication virtually impossible without the right tools and machinery. These keys also need to be programmed, and because of their unique cut make them the highest security available for any Volvo semi truck.
