: 9-5 Alarm Sensitivity Adjustment?

The security alarm on my 2003 9-5 saloon goes off during heavy hailstorms, does anyone know how to adjust its sensitivity?

You can disable the glass (shock) sensor temporary, this if from the manual:

Window glass sensor
The car-alarm system incorporates a sensor that monitors the window glass for the sound of breakage. The sensor is fitted inside the rear dome light.
To avoid false alarms, such as the alarm being triggered by noise from passers by when the windows have been left open, or when children or pets are left inside the car, the sensor can be temporarily disabled.

To disable the sensor
To disable the sensor, first turn off the ignition and remove the key from the switch. Next, press and hold the NIGHT PANEL button until ”DOOR ALARM ONLY” appears on the Saab Information Display (SID) and a chime sounds. The car alarm must now be activated within three minutes, or the glass sensor will become active again. The glass sensor will be enabled again automatically when the car is next unlocked. The sensor can also be enabled again by repeating the procedure for disabling it. When the sensor has been enabled, ”FULL THEFT ALARM” will appear on the Saab Information Display (SID). If a fault is detected in the glass sensor, ”SERVICE THEFT ALARM” will appear on the Saab Information Display (SID).

Hope that may help some? It's not really a sensitivity adjustment, but rather a disable. Your alarm still works like normal, just not glass-break sensor.
