Its most likely your siren module.

It is located in the right fender well just behind the wheel liner.

Remove the R/F wheel, remove the torx 25 screws, pull the liner to the rear and you can see it right there above the liner.

To remove the siren uses a sheer bolt, which unfortunately you'd need to either drill it out, or use a dremel to slice a slot to get a screw driver in to remove the sheer bolt.

04 volvo xc90 Moonroof will not open. The fuse is good so why will it not open? Also, would this have anything to so with the alarm service notice.

probably the siren module is bad. Moonroof is conected with alarm, and if alarm goes bad, moonroof won-t work. Check out fuses 26 and 28.

I had my alarm system service required how i know that is the siren? also i have service need i all ready did the service how to reset the it?

The person(s) who serviced your alarm should be able to tell you if you have siren or horn type.. We have NO idea what alarm system you have..Volvo has many alarm systems. Ti reset you service light you need an OBII scanner - You can have any good shop or auto parts store do it for you.

What does a message alarm system service required means on my 2004 volvo xc90?

It means that the vehicle diagnostic system has detected a faulty alarm component and must be diagnosed and fixed.

At best it just means that your alarm is partially or wholly non-functional, at worst it could activate at random or even cause the immobiliser to play up.

Unless you have specialist skills and tools then it's not really a DIY fix unless the fault is a really obvious one, like a failed door switch.

replace remote battery to make sure, but if alarm is activated it continous to chirp the alarm or if your alarm system is set by the manufacturer try to relearn the program, if all fuse are ok, and your remote lock/unlock is work, check for lose ground connection, if remote is not working, replace the battery then try to do this. swtch ignition in 10 seconds to on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on wait 30 seconds, press any button of the remote once, turn igniton off, after 30 seconds start the car, if not go to the nearest service center to check the troublecodes

Service message for alarm system

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.
