    Question Siren Wires

    Anybody know what the three wires going into the back of the alarm siren are/do?
    The alarm is way too quiet on the vectra so I want to fit another siren under the bonnet. I don't want to move it for insurance reasons.
    Cheers

    Yep, and you'll get Check Safeguard appearing on your display as the siren is part of the CanBus system.

    Cheers for the replys guys.
    Using the horn instead of the siren would be ideal, but it dosn't work on my 52 sxi I just get the hazards flashing.
    It's amazing how deafeningly loud the siren is when its going off in your hands. Must remember to disarm before disconnecting it lol, my ears are still ringing.

    Did not work on my Sri 2004, I unplugged the siren and locked up the car and my alarm went off (Horns).
