    Dont think its garage mode mate, they have a very common problem with the batteries dying on the siren, if you do a search there is ALOT of info on how to repair or replace.

    I see you have tested it, but when you arm the car, the leds on the door pins will flash constantly yea, when they slow down and flash at a normal pace, that means the car is armed, try doing it like this with the windows down and wave your arms in there and see if that does anything.

    Its in the rear wheel arch, under all the lining and the sub, so well hidden away for obvious reasons, not so good as the sounds gets covered up!!
