Anyone got any help advice with this one.

BONKERS driving me crazy now tugging away at the door handle or touching the fob on door jamb.

Anyone done a rest or something.

Cheers Andy

People have reported problems but there's no report of a "solution".

I'd have to say the one I test drove seemed to work perfectly.

You can slide a finger leftwards over the little slot in the driver's handle to unlock, or cover the slot fully to lock, as a manual way that works most of the time if the fob does nt!

I have a Polestar - don't yet have the EX30 - but the intermittent fob success happens with me as well. In my case it is due to the sensitivity of the radio signal between the car and the fob. I find if I have the fob too close to the handle, it doesn't work, and if it's too far, or blocked by my body, it doesn't work. There's a goldilocks distance in my case.

I have been doing the same previous xc40 was so responsive to unlocking. Finding I have to be patient with hand behind the handle to unlock … cover the full slot to lock. Not very slick!

I’m assuming you’ve turned on the proximity setting? I had this issue to begin with but now seems to be working ok.

Needs Volvo name facing out and the right way up. With Volvo name upside down, won't work.
