I have a volvo S40 P reg,when I lock the doors with the remote locking Fob the hazard lights wont stop flashing,it locks all the doors fine but I dont think it sets the alarm as I have sat in it locked the doors and moved about and nothing happens.

Is there a reset button or something to get it working again.

Try unlocking the vehicle with the key. If there is a lock on each side do both, otherwise just do the one. Perhaps the factory alarm disarm signal is not being sent properly.

I used the key to unlock the doors, there was no alarm. Am I missing something ?

When you use the key in the cylinder it sends a disarm pulse to deactivate the factory alarm.

So as things are, what else can I try to make that remote working .Just to reiterate, the doors and the boot 'locks' ok using the remote. But there is non-stop flashing of hazard lights(no sound).

As you advised, I tried opening the doors inserting the key after I locked (using the remote) them. Normally, as I remember, the alarms should have sounded but nothing such happened, rather the doors opened fine but the flashing of hazard lights didn't stop ! I then had to lock & unlock again using the remote to stop those blinking hazard lights.


Does this make sense ? Anything else I need to tell like blinking speed of the red led on the immobilizer unit (near the tape) etc to help diagnose the issue ?

Many thanks.
