Why doesn't my Volvo S60 key fobs work?

My Volvo S60 key fobs (both) are not opening/closing the car. New batteries have been put into fobs, but still nothing. Can you help?

Reads like you replaced the batteries too slowly and the fobs lost the codes. You normally have no more than 10 seconds to replace the batteries, so have to get the new ones out of the packages first.

You probably have to go to a Volvo dealer to get them re-coded, but first try these people: Timpsons in the High Street, side street or in a Shopping Mall. No joy there, links to keys and locksmiths in this directory:
