Question about 2002 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Panic Alarm My car's panic alarm keeps going off every 30 seconds after I have driven the car or even sometimes after the car has been sitting there for awhile. By the time I get out the car and go in the house (which is only about 10-15 footsteps) the panic alarm goes off ( you know the sound the car makes when you push the yellow button when you dnt remember what floor you parked your car on) That's the noise that comes on over and over again for about 30mins or so (no I havent push the button by mistake) like I said it even comes on when the hasn't been moved. The message tells me that I have to get it serviced (which I know) all I want to know is how I get it to stop making the noise until then (I'm going crazy from the noise and my neighbors are too) Hlep please

    Recently broken into via sun roof, repaired at dealer, but a few weeks later, I have the same problem, but no sound, just the lights going on/off. Reset the info center. Since no noise, I have let it go, now two months later, info center states to service.

Panic goes off.... have the dealer reprogram it and make sure the function of it is proper.. if the reprogramming does not work the module will need to be replaced like all other malfunctioning modules.

Same Problem - Xterra Panic Alarm Keeps Going Off


If you are close to the truck when it happens, try removing the battery from the remote. Some times when remotes are worn, they can send out a constant signal setting off the alarm, unlocking the doors and so on. I would try that first. If it stops, then you verified the remote is the problem

2002 dodge grand caravan panic alarm


if its the remote then it needs to be swapped out. it could be the alarm module if the remote is not the thing that malfunctioning. i would get the alarm reprogrammed by the dealer and the whole module and go from there.
so in order, 1. reprogram whole system 2.replace remote 3.replace module

On my saab vector ignition key functions


I have a Saab 93 Vector and although my key does not have that function my manual says the following; 'Press once - Turns on exterior and cabin lighting, for 30 sec, or turns off lighting. Deactivates panic alarm. Hold and press for more than 2 sec - Cars with car alarm: panic alarm (activates alarm manually).
There is another section that says the button turns off lights and larm when activated and the car remains locked. The panic alarm can only be activated when the car is stationary and it will be silenced when the car is driven away.

Hope that makes sense. Enjoy your Saab 93 - I know I do every day.

Interior lights stay on and panic alarm keeps going off


You have a bad or sticking door adjar switch. The switch is located in the latch assembley inside the door. Most of the time you can take some WD40 and spray it into the latch,put a good amount on it,then open and close the door several times.

Panic button


the alarm may be in "stolen" mode already. what you can do is that you can switch the key into ON position and open the hood, remove the negative terminal from the battery and reconnect after two minutes. this will give the alarm time to reboot and recognized that you have the key to this vehicle.
