Lonsdor K518ISE program Volvo XC60 smart key

In the car industry,Volvo’s security system is relatively tight. In the past, due to technical problems,

it is extremely difficult to key program a Volvo XC60 smart key, the only way is resort to 4S shop, while the cost is terribly high.

Now, Lonsdor K518ISE can do it too, user no longer have to go to 4S shop and suffer the high cost, simply use K518ISE, which is for now the best Volvo key programming equipment.

Before key programming Volvo XC60, you need to read the security data of two modules, then directly OBD add the key (add key and all keys lost are in the same way)

1. CEM module (behind the storage box of co-pilot)

2. KVM module (right side of the trunk)

There are two kinds of smart keys: 5 keys and 6 keys, both are 433 frequencies.

For 5 keys, before key programming, dismantle the CEM module and read the security data to backup.

For 6 keys, before key programming, dismantle both the CEM and KVM modules and read the security data to backup.

When we read CEM and KVM security data to backup, we need to use accessories of the adapter, RN-01 and FS-01 probe board.

Note: First time to use the adapter, we need to bind it with K518ISE. Go to the K518ISE home page and choose "Settings -> binding adapter", following the direction to finish binding.

One K518ISE host can bind up to 5 adapters, and the bound adapter can not be bound to other K518ISE hosts. Once bounded, no need to bind again.


Read CEM security data:


1. Volvo's CEM are located under the co-pilot airbag on the left, remove the debris box, the new/old CEM box look the same, but with different circuits)

Read CEM data with RN-01 board:

Connect K518ISE host, adapter, and RN-01 board as below: 

2. For the old version, when opening the lid, in the back of the circuit board, please pay attention to the black column with blue circles,
which are the four positioning points that need to match stably with the white column of RN-01 board.


Note: The circuit board is coated with insulating glue, it is required to use the washing plate water to wash 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 do to wire in the corresponding locations.

For the new version, the circuit is different, which requires to wire to read the anti-theft data, please refer to following guides to wire:

Note: Connect power to read the data, it is needed to separate RN-01 board to the motherboard to prevent conduction; it is recommended that welding line should not exceed 15cm.


Read KVM security data:


Volvo's KVM modules are located after the rear box, in the upside of the right rear wheel position(for 16 S60L car, it is recommended to dismantle from the right rear door to the wheel direction);

1. After opening the module cover, it is firstly needed to use the washing plate water to wash off the blue area of the insulation coating, or power can not go through.

Read KVM data with FS-01 board:

Below the positions in red circle are the 8-pin insertion points of FS-01 board:

Connection between K518ISE host, adapter and FS-01 board:

Xprog read CEM from Volvo

Xprog manual: how to read CEM units from Volvo S40/V50/C30/C70 2004-

It’s Xprog working for Volvo S40/V50/C30/C70 2004-

Xprog-box 5.7.0

Xprog-m 5.6.0

It is CEM unit used on S40/V50/C30/C70 2004-


This CEM has already get clone in a company.
open it up and saw 5 soldering spots to the left from the big black chip.


Read it with Xprog for example.


X-prog connection attached.


Pin Assignments in 80-pin QFP for MC9S12DG256


You have to read MC9S12DP256 and MC9S12DP128.

Both of them have EEPROM and FLASH
You have to read them out separately and then you have two bin files per chip.

And then you will have 4 files.

If you know what to look then you can find it in HEX. But otherwise it's just some numbers and letters.

Note: You don't need an adapter. Use regular cable:


At least with XPROG-M


R270 BDM programmer GOOD/BAD results

Here are good and bad results of working with R270 programmer.

Good results:

eeproms from bmw and opel ok

CAS4 wih 1L15Y from new bmw works ok

All kinds of 35080 eeproms worked so far...

Cas 2 (2K79X) and cas 3 (0L15Y) merceds esz (0L40K)

r270+ 9s12 no probs

working good with 1k79x Mercedes W211 CGW

working fine on eeprom write problem, I'm using win 7 64 bit.

Read and write Cas3, Cas3 Plus, Eis. All work fine

one of my best tools to read and write hc908 processors.

perfect tool also for 35080 never disappointed me .

With 9S12 works very good, but some of VP, V6 eep it can't erase incremental area.

I prefer R290 with more vehicle coverage, supports 2006 BMW and Porsche Motorola MC9S12XEP100 chip (5M48H/1N35H)


Bad results:

r270 blue box did try on mb w203 ezs 3k91d and it erased eeprom on motorola chip.
this tool did read 35080 eeprom but never write or erase.
better go with r260 red box.

In my case about an EZS of a w2011 with 3k91d i try to read it ok and after change km on it, is not able to write correct and finally car not runs.I try to back up ori. file and nothing.Bad result in this case.I use r270 black plastic box...

I bought a r270 and i'm trying to read/write a 9s12dj64 but i have no luck.
It's the blue plastic box r270

i have buy r270 black box.
it read blank data on 35080 and 35160. can not erase(more than 45 min )still not erase.
i do all solutions in forum without results

Just get cheep universal programmer like mini pro TL866 works good with regular 95080 and just buy new 95080 chip .. i have r270 also xprog its very bad when you need to do 95080 and cheep programer work's better in this case.
