Hi, I own a Volvo S60 2001 model. This morning I woke up and could not start my car. The alarm is on, wont stop, all dash board lights are not going on, the remote key wont open the car and when I try to start the car it makes some continuous clicking sounds. There is no sign of the engine clanking. I disconnected the battery and left it for some considerable time but still the car could not start. However I got some lights on the dash board but after trying to start if it all went black. I need help, if there is anyone who has experienced this problem please help me solve this problem.

Sounds like the alarm siren/module is dying and caused your battery to run flat in the process.

Have you had any messages regarding the alarm system needing serviced?
Have you tried charging the battery?

If the battery charges and you manage to start the car OK - I would recommend locking it with the key in the door rather than with the remote, that way the alarm shouldn't be armed and will hopefully not cause a drain on the battery.

The module can be replaced but it will set you back around 100 - it's located under the drivers wheel arch - you'll need to remove the liner to get to it.

If it is the alarm siren module, it's a trip to the dealership, as they have to hook it up to the Volvo mothership to initialize the new module.

From what I can gather a trip to the dealers shouldn't be necessary Doogwhan -
Most people seem to have simply replaced the module (disconecting the battery first of course) and got it working by simply locking and unlocking the car with the remote a few times - as if they were resetting the ECM.

Luckily in my case, I think my module is completely and utterly dead - it doesn't seem to be causing any problems with the battery or anything else. If I lock with the remote, thus putting the alarm on, I just get the alarm service message every time I put the key in the ignition.

It's a minor annoyance really - because I would like to get it working as it should, but I think I'll wait for a warmer weekend to have a go.

Incidently - the siren on it's own (part no. 09452709) will cost around 155 from the dealers, but if you ask for part no. 9499758, this is a complete kit including the above module along with the sheer bolt to refit it and various other pars for around 110 !!!

(Do get them to double check these part numbers before ordering though)
