I recently replaced the alternator and battery in my 1999 V40 as it had been stood for around 3 months and needed both. A week after replacing the battery the alarm LED is constantly on when the car is switched off and locked.
What this means isn't covered in the manual. Can anyone shed any light on what this means?
Many thanks,
Vigo.

my haynes manual says if the alarm light stays on continuously when the car is locked it indicates a door bonnet or boot are not shut correctly, if they are shut it probably indicates a sensor fault that indicates back to the alarm when a door (or bonnet or boot)is open or shut.
