Alarm System and Security

I have a 2001 S60 2.4T which is always displaying 'Alarm System Service Required' message. How do I service the Alarm system? In addition, the alarm never sounds even if there is a breach! What may be wrong with and how can I resolve it?<BR><BR>

Re: Alarm System (John Kester)

You take it to the dealer, who has access to VIDA, who then determine the problem and repair it. Most likely the alarm siren with built in battery backup has failed.

I will appreciate if you can tell me how to get to the location of the battery backup so that I can change it myself. I have no access to any dealer so I have to do this myself. Kindly help! Thanks

you need diagnostics before you start changing things out - what do you mean you have no access to the dealer?

Re: (Bender)

There is no dealership for Volvo in my country so I have no access to one.<br>I do not intend to simply change the battery. I will need to determine that the battery backup has failed before changing it.

This is for a S80, but your car should be essentially the same: <A HREF="http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=17479" TARGET="_blank">http://www.matthewsvolvosite.c...17479</A>
