Hi everyone,

I have never heard the alarm on my 53 plate 1.4 hdi.


The immobiliser works fine, but the car itself has never made a sound.
Is there any way I can test whether it indeed has an alarm or not?

I've tried opening and starting without central locking, locking when I'm inside and trying the door handles and even rocking the car back and forth.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Opening the door with the key sets the alarm off for me.
