My 2004 s60 volvo's alarm does not make a sound but the lights blink off and on.

The alarm is on, the red dash light blinks, but the outside lights blink even when the car has not been tampered with. It makes no sound just outside blinking lights. won't that run my battery down?

SOURCE: Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...

4 beeps & 4 flashes mean problem with the power supply. For my experience, most of the time the PSU is good, it is just overloaded.

SOURCE: blinking airbag dashlight Nissan Versa

First, turn on your car (ON key position) and your airbag light stays on for 7 seconds, then starts flashing every half second. (.5 seconds on, .5 seconds off, repeat)
This means either your airbag is malfunctioning, or it malfunctioned in the past. We'll find out exactly what happened in a second.

If your airbag light is on solid the whole time, either your airbag has deployed, the computer thinks its deployed, or your sensor or wire harness is broken. You're going to need a professional to fix this.

If your light never comes on at all, your METER fuse might be blown, or you might have a wiring fault in an airbag circuit. Go directly to Infiniti and have a professional fix this.

OK, so your light is flashing like I explained before. Next, we're going to enter DIAGNOSIS mode. This mode will tell you exactly what’s wrong with your airbag (according to the computer at least) It's a bit tricky, but read carefully.

1. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
2. After “AIR BAG” warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, [i.e. when it stops running solid and starts flashing] turn ignition switch “OFF” within 1 second. [DO NOT SWITCH IT TO LOCK, SWITCH IT TO ACC]
3. Wait more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 two times. (Perform 3 times in total.)
5. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
SRS is now in Diagnosis mode.

Try it a few times. If you can't get it to work, have someone else try. If you STILL can't get it to work, check your battery voltage. It might be low.

In diagnosis mode, you're going to hope the light flashes slowly. 2 seconds off, 3 seconds on, and repeats. If your light does this, this means that the computer detected a previous error that hasn't been erased. This is good.

If you get ANY OTHER result, go directly to Infiniti. You've got a real problem that needs a real fix.

Now, to erase the error from memory.

5. If “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates as [as I said before], turn ignition switch “OFF” to reset from Diagnosis mode
to User mode and to erase the memory of the malfunction.

6. Turn ignition switch “ON”. “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates in
User mode. [it should stay on for 7 seconds, then go off, like normal.]

Hope this helps you.

Why does the engine light that reads timing on a 2004 Volvo s60 stay on even after the timing belt and water pump and timing hubs have been replaced?

You can reset the computer by disconnecting your Battery for 15 Minutes. That should reset the Lights on the dash.

There is a blinking red led light under lower left side of driver and steering wheel attached to dash. It blinks ALWAYs!!!

This is most likely your "Valet" alarm disable switch. Use to disable your car alarm so you can keep your Alarm Fob and let a Valet, mechanic, friend etc. operate the car without the alarm being functional. If it is an after market alarm, consult the mfg's manual, if OEM contact dealer for operating instructions.

My Volvo S60 Fuel flap won't lock or unlock,

The pin solenoid that activates the remote locking is not receiving any electrical signal, it must have been unhooked. This solenoid is right by the filler door, inside the boot. The alarm activates on electrical differences, such as dome light, boot light or filler door electrical demand when it is activated. Hence, the alarm wont trip off if door is opened manually from the outside.

2001 volvo s60....turn signals on instrument panel blink fast, but when using 4 way flashers they are right speed

Check the turn signals outside of the car while they are on. Usually when they blink quickly, it is an indication that a bulb has burned out.

Alarm sounding on 2004 Volvo S60 D5 for no apparent reason.

Temporarily, you can go to the fuse box inside your car [open the driver's door and the panel is on the end of the dash, which is hidden when the door is closed.] And pull the last fuse, #38, for the siren.

The owner's manual states that pulling the fuse, or if it's damaged/burnt/blown, that the alarm will sound. That's not true. BTW, I learned of all this from three different Volvo forums/user groups, tonight. My '03 S60 started having a near constant running of the alarm. [It's usual 25 second run, a very short pause, and then it'd go again.]

Pulling the fuse disables the siren, but the rest of the alarm still works as usual. Blinking lights, and if it has it, an ignition kill. You can verify buy closing all doors, but keeping the drivers window down. Then arm the alarm. Wait 30 seconds. Manually pull up on the door lock pin. Then open the door. The amber lights should start flashing. And your dash will have a message that the alarm was triggered, and to check the vehicle.

The problem and it's permanent solution: the batteries in the siren module go bad after some time, and if they leak their electrolyte fluid, that'll corrode the circuit board and/or quite commonly, it turns out, corrode one of the two +/- wires connecting the battery to the circuit board. Thus, messing up the alarms sense of reality, and triggering the alarm at random times/intervals.

Need to get a replacement siren module [can't get circuit board separately, apparently.] and either have fun trying to replace it yourself [dealing with rivets] or have the dealership do it. They'll say you need to do a software reset, but you just need to arm/disarm the system three times to reset it. [according to the forum posts I've read.]

Good luck!
