XC90 Intermittent starting problems 2010 D5 Executive - i think its the key?

We have 2 keys for our XC90.

Car starts every time with my key.

My wife has had the car refuse to start (or even turn over) at some random times. Initially i thought it was the car battery on its way out so replaced that as it was about 5 years old, but that didn't fix it.

We have also changed the battery in the remote, but that didn't fix it.

What is the next thing to try, or do i need to visit a Volvo dealer?

    A good independent Volvo shop. Where do you live.

  • sounds like key to me but need more info as you said it starts fine with your key and not hers,

  • Ex850RSnoopy @Ex850R Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Melbourne.

    Does this have a loading key slot or the later manual push in one?

    The older auto type play up.

    See if your landrover guy can suss it out?

  • Thanks for your responses, I live in Bathurst and there is only 1 Volvo dealer west of the Blue Mtns in Orange. Yep, my Landrover mechanic might be worth a try.

    Our keys look like this
