Hello I have a 960 M reg Volvo. I have had it for 17 years

Resolved Question:

Hello I have a 960 M reg Volvo. I have had it for 17 years when I bought it I had a key fob which smashed. I never replaced it as I just used the key to lock and unlock with no problems for all these years. The battery went flat, so I re charged it, put it back on, as soon as I turned the ignition the alarm started and lights flashed, now it won't start. What can I do !!! if anything

Enes : Hello and welcome to our web page here my name is***** a Certified Volvo Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try today to answer your question.
Enes : you alarm lost memory now is triggering false alarm
Enes : you can try to re program remote and hope it comes back alive if not you will need new remote to deactivate alarm correct
Enes : Program like this
Enes : 1. Sit in the vehicle with all doors closed.2. Turn the ignition key off and on four times (not to start position, but the on position) and on the fifth time leave in the on position.3. Press the remote lock/unlock button several times (if there is a dashboard mounted LED come on for 2 seconds and then it should flash for ten seconds) to synchronise the remote to the control unit. Repeat for additional remotes.4. Switch off the ignition and test the remotes. 4 remotes maximum
