    Your siren isen't broken, they are set to silent by default. There is a way of turning the sound back on again, but can't remember if it's a DIY thing or through your dealer (or VAG software, if you have it).

    I am sure that if you search the forum you'll come across something.

    I'm pretty I've read that this can be done via vag-com

    will have to search for that thread

    why would you have an alarm set to silent by default??? i've never seen a setting in vag-com to disable the siren, you can enable or disable the lock/unlock beep but that's all

    it's knackered, the bateries in it have died, there's 2 options open to you, buy replacement siren for around 80 quid from audi or fit a remote battery pack, do a search on here to find the post about it

    Sorry buddy, I mis-read your original post.

    I'd agree that your siren is buggered if your alarm is triggered but there is no noise. I thought that you wanted it to bleep on set/un-set.

    Good luck with it.
