    Silent Alarm

    I've just noticed a sight issue with my alarm.

    I triggered the alarm while messing with the car but only the indicators are flashing, there is no audible warning.

    Has anyone got any ideas what would be causing this

    I didn't see any codes the last time I scanned with VagCom but will recheck for fresh codes.

    im sure its to do with the settings in vag com mate, I know some other cars can have the beep disabled depending on which country code you chose for the settings, alfa beep unless you set it to australia, which is done by pressing the bonnet pin-switch 3 times then holding it till it beeps, then each press after that selects a diff country.....dunno if thats much help but check vag com anyway for codings in the immob and alarm. Audi beeps will probably be in the coding in the module, accessible from vag com.

    most likely knackered siren, very common fault
    facelift use a battery back up type and the batteries eventually leak which wrecks the rest of circuit board

    bargain at 80 from audi !!!!

    i got a used replacement from a later model from A8 parts, slightly different design but works perfectly, pretty sure it had the same part number but with an 'A' suffix

    I am sure Aragorn has recently fitted one of these upgraded units. Aquired it from Ebay.DE IIRC

    B6/7/8 all use the same part (well the revised "A" part anyway) as do most other Audi/VW cars so you can get it from anything new.

    you need to swap the bracket over, but that doesnt really count as a mod as its just a single bolt :P
