Volvo Guard Alarm System is an advanced, remote controlled alarm system specially developed for S80, S60, S60 R, V70, V70 R, XC70.

The alarm system in the S80, S60, S60 R, V70, V70 R and XC70 is integrated into the electrical system and gives great reliability. The alarm can be configured according to market requirements and is designed to meet all insurance and legal requirements. The car is 100% prepared for the installation of the alarm, which ensures high quality and minimal installation time.

Facts and advantages

  • Rotating codes are transmitted from the remote control to prevent unauthorized individuals copying the key codes

  • The remote control key activates/deactivates the alarm at the same time as the car is locked/unlocked

  • Range 5 m (16.4 ft)

  • A visual acknowledgement signal is obtained on activation and deactivation of the alarm. The direction indicators flash once on activation and twice on deactivation

  • Deadlocks (BLL) activated after 15 seconds when the car has been locked using the remote control. (Not standard in all markets.)

  • Alarm diode. Positioned at the top of the dashboard. The alarm status is displayed in the information display in the combined instrument panel. Example: In case of triggered alarm or malfunction

  • Panic function. In an emergency it is possible to get attention by pressing the red button on the remote control. Both the visual and audible signals are activated. The standard car horn is used. The function is included in the car's central locking system. (Certain markets only. Not permitted in EU.)

  • Temporary disconnection of sensors

    It is possible to switch off the alarm sensors and BLL by using a separate switch on the dashboard.

    Used to avoid unintentional triggering of the alarm, if your dog is left in the car or during a ferry crossing for example.

    (The switch is standard on cars equipped with BLL. Others need to purchase the switch separately.)

  • Bypassing the alarm. In case of malfunction or loss of a remote control the car can be started and the alarm deactivated with standard ignition key. Deactivation occurs when the ignition switch receives an approved code from the transponder in the ignition key

  • Reactivating the alarm occurs automatically if no door or tailgate/trunk lid has been opened within two minutes after the alarm has been deactivated using the remote control. This is to prevent accidental deactivation

  • Passive activation. After the ignition has been switched off and the driver's door has been opened and closed, the alarm is activated automatically. (Certain markets only.)

  • Sensors. The following sensors can be connected to the alarm system, separately or in combination:

    - Movement sensor

    - Level sensor


The alarm is connected using VIDA.
