Check the alarm hood switch on the passenger side. Was the car in a accident ever? There should be a little rubber stopper that contacts the switch when the hood is closed. Either the rubber piece (attatched to the underside of the hood) is missing or the rubber is not contacting the switch.

The message is trying telling you that the system has a fault and most likely the control module has disabled the system. After the problem is fixed the message will clear. You can have the system tested by Volvo to see what part of the system has a fault, most likely they will charge about 1 hour labor time.

GM car just like SAABs. I presume you need to replace the batteries and capacitors in the alarm siren (backup in case you have the battery car disconnected during theft attempt). Or you can go to a GM garage and have them reprogram your car's computer with GM's Tech II to not check the battery in the alarm at startup.
Might be wrong, but sounds like the prob.

have you been in accident lately? you can reset the cars computer by disconnecting the positive side of the battery for 10minutes. be sure you do not need code to reset the cars stereo! if no code needed,reset your computer. be sure to have keys in hand when you do this. you'll need those to gain entry into your vehicle when system is reset. also make sure you push in on car hood release after you shut your hood. this may help you. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here 24/7 7days a week!

The CTD system requests the IPC to illuminate the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF. The CTD system uses the indicator in order to identify system status. For specific CTD condition that will illuminate the security indicator, refer to Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) Description and Operation .
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.
SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM The radio illuminates the SERVICE THEFT SYSTEM message when the VTD system detects a failure. The radio receives a message from the theft deterrent control module via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.
This is one you need to take to the dealer , unless you have a GM factory scan tool !
