You will probrably have to take to a dealer and have them check it out. Most likely its a bad siren control module.

I haven't looked at it yet, But it looks like I will be taking it to the shop in the morning just to get it done. 160.00 diagnostic and it can be one of two parts ranging from 130 to 160.00 . Now that sucks for a monor problem.

Default My V70's alarm goes off at random and is driving me crazy

At first my alarm only went off during the evenings of the presidential and vice presidential debates. Weird, right? But since the last debate there was only one evening when it went off a few times, and now tonight it's gone off about 6 times. I don't know what to do, and I'm sure my neighbors don't appreciate it either.

Days will go by when it doesn't act up at all. Then it will keep going on at random, over periods of minutes, even after I've turned it off. My V70 is a 2002 model (I bought it new at the end of '02) and this problem just started during the first presidential debate.

I saw a post in another area of this forum where someone said Volvo charged them more than $400 to fix it. Aaaargh!

Default RE: Alarm goes off after locking car................

The alarm in my 2001 V70 was going off for no reason and it turned out to be broken wires in the tailgate wiring harness near the left hinge. One of the broken wires was the wire to the tailgate lock so the activated alarm though the tailgate was being open. I also got random tailgate open messages when it was closed. The broken wire made contact most of the time but it was a flaky and intermittent connection. Not sure if this is your problem but something worth checking, especially if you're getting random tailgate opens messages. I believe the alarm monitors all doors and the hood too so the problem could be in another area.
