Your battery might be knackered, check if its holding a charge. You may even have a power drain somewhere!

Do you live close to a mobile phone transmitter or even digital radio comms have been known to set my V40 off. The phone transmitters actually caused me problems when closing or trying to open the car via the alarm fob.

My belief is the frequency bands are very close or in fact overlapping.

You got a wiring short. Disconnect your battery cable.

Look for the shut-off change for your alarm system. When your security was set up, the specialist most likely outfitted it with a shut-off change to allow you to convert off your alarm system whenever. The shut-off change is usually situated below your rim near you and is invisible so that criminals can't discover it. Your specialist should have proven you where it is. You may have to keep it down for three or four a few moments for the program to close down. you can look for disconnecting alarm system more on Volvo repair information.
