The alarm is automatically armed whenever the vehicle is locked with the remote key or optional Personal Car Communicator.

When armed, the alarm continuously monitors a number of points on the vehicle. The following conditions will trigger the alarm:

  • The hood is forced open.
  • The trunk is forced open
  • A door is forced open.
  • The ignition slot is tampered with.
  • An attempt is made to start the vehicle with a non-approved key (a key not coded to the car's ignition).
  • If there is movement in the passenger compartment (if the vehicle is equipped with the accessory movement sensor).
  • The vehicle is lifted or towed (if the vehicle is equipped with the accessory inclination sensor).
  • The battery is disconnected (while the alarm is armed).
  • The siren is disconnected when the alarm is disarmed.

A message will appear in the information display if a fault should occur in the alarm system. Contact a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
