I just bought my 2000 V70XC a couple of months ago and love it, but it didn't come with a keyless remote. Supposedly the alarm is supposed to arm when you lock the car with the key or even via the door panel. Whenever I lock the car the little red LED on the op of the dashboard starts to flash. I assumed that the flashing LED on the top of the dash meant that the alarm was activated. A few weeks ago I got the bright idea to "test" the alarm by locking the car with the windows partially down and then reaching in and unlocking the door and opening it. I was a bit surprised when the alarm didn't sound and I was easily able to open and mess around with the car. I just read the manual and it says that the turning indicators should flash when you lock the car (with the remote, key, or door panel) to show that the alarm is armed. (This obviously doesn't happen when I lock my car.)

Maybe the alarm needs to be reset? Does anyone know why the alarm would not be working and/or possible scenarios for fixing it cheaply? Thanks!
