    ALARM IS VERY VERY QUIET

    Noticed i sent the alarm of today, and to my surprise there was the quietest little beeping at the back of the car. I expected the horn or something but this noise would not alert anyone but Dogs at it is that quite,

    Can anyone help me out here

    Yep mines the same. Think that's how they are. If you let it keep going it does get annoying but that's about it.

    That's how they are - I don't know how Audi are allowed to call it an alarm.

    When my previous A4 TDi got broken into on the drive the alarm was so quiet we thought it was my phone beeping upstairs!

    Doesn't the siren have its own battery? Would that be the cause of the battery never being replaced?

    Yep, its just the way they are im afraid.

    I have often thought about taking the alarm apart & wiring in a relay to an additional alarm siren - it hasn't materialized as of yet!

    This just gives a single beep of the ALARM horn, not the car horn. Have it coded on mine.

    Hi everyone. First post for me here but a frequent visitor.
    Just thought that i should share with you all how i solved the problem with the horribly weak alarm siren on the B7.
    Just bought myself a second OEM siren and placed it in the engine compartment. Then ran a wire from the stock siren in the back to the new one. Hooked it up to the + and - on the battery.
    The difference is like night and day.
    Uploaded a before and after video on the tube so you can hear the difference.
    Before: A4 b7 siren orginal - YouTube
    After: A4 B7 siren - YouTube
