The 2005 Volvo S40 comes with a combo key. This key has a remote keyless entry system integrated with it. If you notice the keyless entry signal getting weak, it's time to replace the battery. When the signal is weak, it may take multiple pushes of the remote buttons to lock or unlock the car's doors. The Volvo's remote uses a basic 3-volt battery you can purchase at almost any electronics store.
