Is there anyone in the Essex/London border that can plug my v70 in and turn a couple of warning messages off for me ?
Thanks

The alarm message will remain each start up until you fix the alarm. Vida won't clear this permanently on its own.

There's a forum member in Barking who's helped me twice with Vida - saw him just 2 weeks ago. I'll email him and see if he's still happy for his contact details to be made available.

Any alarm from around 8 years old onwards are either knackered or on borrowed time.

I made a repair video here which has over a quarter of a million views so yes, it's most definitely a common issue.

There’s hundreds of threads on the alarm, but very briefly the internal backup battery starts leaking acid and fries/dissolves the internal circuit board. Most people just put up with the warning message as it’s only on for a few seconds.
