Vehicle Parts & Accessories - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I recently tried the on line library site. you can't check out reference books anyway so you might as well look at them at the on line library. You can get a library card on line too if you need one. You can also use E-manuals on line

Without knowing exactly what model you have, I strongly suggest going to the manufacturer's website:

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!

it's obvious, you don't have it wired up corectly either via grounding or via power suppply. it's blowing the fuses because you're prboably pulling too much amperage. you'll need a multimeter to see what levels of voltage and amperage and resistance are registering.

pg5 of the PDF above, pg 10 of the manual

Recharge every 30 days and after each use. Failure to do so will result in possible damage to the internal battery and result in poor performance or failure to work at all.
1. Plug the AC Charging Cord supplied into the 120 Volt-in connection on the back of the Jump Pack.
2. Plug the other end of the cord into a 110/120-volt AC outlet.
3. The Red charging LED light will glow and will remain ON during the charging process When the internal battery is completely full the Green FULL CHARGE LED light on the control panel will turn on automatically. This can take up to 72 hours depending on the condition of your internal battery. You can unplug your AC Charging Cord at this time OR leave it plugged in indefinitely as the CULâ„¢ listed internal charger is float charge equipped to maintain the internal battery
