    Sirens ( I think by law) have to turn off after a finite amount of time ( and I can't remember what it is). So its more than likely just turned itself off.

    I think siren goes for about 30 seconds, but indicators remain flashing for quite a while.

    had a look for the siren but can't see anything that looks like one. Passenger side is the sub, changer, rear lights and a small box with foam around it.

    Any ideas??

    I have a feeling it's the small box. (The one right at the back at the bottom, not the one up near the back seat - I think that's the seatbelt reel).
    It's a puny alarm anyway, and sounds like a radio alarm clock.

    If I remember correctly the small box with foam around it is part of the central locking.
