My friend bought a 2004 V8 model XC 90 and his car has no audible notion of being alarmed or unalarmed (lock/unlock). He took it to the dealer and they said it wasn't something they could turn on. <p>This seems rediculous to me, but the owners manual doesn't mention it at all. I distinctly remember other Volvo's having audible notification, what gives?

I've already inquired about this and it's not possible which is an oversight on Volvo. Even in a Volvo commercial they show the car beeping. My 997S doesn't beep either and worse it only has one button for lock/unlock so you really have to pay attention for the light signal. Maybe it's a Euro thing?

Re: (stom_m3)

I hate beeping alarms. Esp when you are trying to sneak into the house late at night. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>BTW, the ONLY commercial that showed the beeping alarm was the Richard Branson spaceship commercial.<br>The ad people added the beep for dramatic effect.
