    Hi guys,
    i keep meeting my S3 with the hazard light on while it is parked locked.
    i get this a lot lately. seems the alam is setting off without a sound.

    i check with VAG COM and found these:

    4 Faults Found:

    01135 - Interior Monitoring Sensors
    004 - No Signal/Communication
    00323 - Vehicle Inclination Sensor (G384)
    004 - No Signal/Communication
    01134 - Alarm Horn (H12)
    004 - No Signal/Communication
    00849 - S-contact at Ignition/Starter Switch (D)
    008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent


    went to check fuse number 17 (alarm fuse) which seemed to be blown. trying to replace it mad me blow another 2. seems there is an electrical problem but not sure if it is the alarm, siren or something else? where should i start looking?

    Well it looks like you may have an ignition barrel problem, clear the faults & disconnect battery, replace fuses blown & reconnect battery & see which ones blow again, check all fuses then see which systems those fuses support & work back from there.

    thanks for the quick answer, i think you miss understood me:
    what i ment is while replacing fuse no. 17 the next one i put instead blow also, and the same for the 2nd time.
    fuse 17 is the alarm system according to the manual book. i dont know where to check from here, is it possible that a bad alarm horn can cause this short circuit?
