    If you look directly up the middle of your bonnet it's there in the middle of your dash at the the bottom of your window you won't notice it during the day check it at night

    lock the car
    wait bout 20 min an then
    throw a brick through the window, if it rings then its working.

    but seriously, go to the dealer and ask them to have a look see?

    The Alarm LED is in one of the small squarish domes that are either side of the centre speaker grill on the top of the dash, the other one is the sunlight sensor for the climate control.

    Once the system is armed this should flash, but it isn't that bright.

    Arm the alarm when sitting inside the car, give it a min or so then start waving your arms around! Hopefully the alarm will sound.
