Lost Alarm Remote-Help!

513 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  vlvman
I lost my remote control from my key ring....

Fortunately, my driver's window was down so I have access to the interior, but of course I can't start the engine.

I tried disconnecting the battery in hopes of resetting the alarm, but that doesn't work.

Any ideas on resetting the alarm? I'm at least 75 miles from the nearest Volvo dealership.

Sorry to tell you, you're SOL...
Actually, if you have a key (not key fob), try locking and unlocking your door from the outside three times- this should disable the alarm system and may allow you to start your car without the fob attached (only on '98 and older Volvo's).

On the 850's the alarm module is behind the glovebox, good chance it's still there on your S70. Do a search on the alarm module, you may be able to simply unplug it.
