B5 alarm siren - does any one know of an alternative
I had a thread on the VAG COM section trying to fix my alarm. It turned out to be the siren not the coding. I replaced the siren with a second hand unit. It is so quiet !! and from what I can gather these sirens fail a lot.
I understand a normal siren can not be used and we need a digital one. Does anyone knoe of an altenative that is louder?
For anyone whose siren has just failed - you may be able to fix it. They are easy to take out. I put mine in a vice and Chisled at the visible seam. it opened up easy, with no damage from the chisel .But the battery acid had leaked all over the circiut board and bits fell off when i tried cleaning it. THe batteries themselfs come out so I image you could just replace these then seal up the siren case and re-use
