This is a highly sophisticated system (complicated and expensive!) that will require an experienced Volvo shop. There are 15-20 computers in this car that are all networked together and they will need to be checked. You need a special tool to read all the trouble codes in the system, then someone with the experience to understand the codes.

However, you can try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, that may get you going temporarily, to get it to a shop.

How do I get my alarm system to chirp instead of beep when it goes off or when I lock my doors with the remote entry key fob?


Check to see if your vehicle honks when you press the "lock" button on your key fob. Press the "lock" button multiple times in a row. Many devices won't beep unless you double-tap the button after locking. If the horn doesn't honk, but the lights flash, your chirp feature is probably disabled.

Use your keyless fob and ignition key to enable the audible chirp. The process varies considerably on different makes and models. You must usually consult your owner's manual, a dealership or the alarm manufacturer for the correct process.

How do I disarm anti theft device on a 2001 ford taurus


SEE THE STEPS WITH CAREFULLY AND COMMON SENSE:God bless you
Press the unlock button on your vehicle's key fob to deactivate the alarm. If you've misplaced your remote for the car, use the PATS programmed key to unlock the driver's side door. Then, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. The vehicle's battery should be on, but the engine shouldn't be running.

  • 2 Locate the override button on the alarm box, beneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Press the button and hold it in until the alarm beeps one time. The LED light for the alarm should stop blinking, indicating the anti-theft system is disabled.

  • 3 To reset the vehicle's alarm, put the PATS programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. Press the override button. When the alarm resets, it chirps two times and the LED light begins blinking.

    Bmw 325 on a y reg will turn over but will not fire fault code pointing immobilizer fault anti tamper fault any ideas easy cheap fix thanks


    Hi Mark you could try to see if re-programming the key might do it, you could also disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if it resets that way...to re-program the key this is what you do, please follow by the book or it wont work, this however is just a trial to see if it will do the job, if reprogramming the key does not do it, then disconnect the battery for ten minutes and then try re-programming of the key...
    1, unlock the car with the key ( not fob) get in and shut the door 2, switch ignition on and then off ( do not try to run it just on then off) 3, remove ignition key 4, press and hold unlock button 5, press lock button 3 times quickly all within ten seconds keeping the unlock button pressed 6, release unlock button 7 ( if you have this type of key fob) the led will flash slowly for 10 seconds 8,( if you have this type of key fob) the central locking system will lock and unlock rapidly to indicate correct programming 9 ( if you have this type of key fob) repeat procedure if the led flashes constantly, or the locking system does not unlock and lock rapidly please follow as directed..if you have any problems understanding what to do, please contact me on email address s.e.morris@live.co.uk hope this helps

    1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


    Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

    Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

    Everytime I lock the car using the key fob, about 30 seconds later the alarm sounds but the lights do not flash and the horn does not sound. Only when I unlock the car will it go off. I have disconnected...


    you may have a bad door switch, theres a switch on the drivers door lock, when door is unlocked with fob or key the switch is activeated to shut alarm down,the lock moves to hit switch with key or fob,so if the switch is bad it will not shut down alarm, i would start there,door panel has to be remove,then latch has to be remove to get to switch, then test with a meter see if it opens and closes the connection, hope this helps.

    1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


    will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.
