    Default Alarm??!!??

    The siren on my Vectra alarm is stupidly quiet. I can see the siren is located in the boot, but is it easy to just change the siren to something louder?

    Its not ging to stop any thieves!!!!

    Believe me, the siren is very loud - it's just the loaction that VX decided to choose that makes it seem quiet.

    I disconnected mine once when it was still armed and the battery back up kicked in - I was 2 feet away from it at the time and couldn't hear properly for a few minutes.

    On the Vec-C hatch, it's located in the boot (obviously). There's a cutaway/hatch on the n/s for stowage and access to the rear fuses/relays and you'll see the siren in here up against the bodywork.

    HTH

    EDIT - just read that you want to change it. On my 02 model, there's three wires going to it on a multiplug. I bought another back up siren from Maplins but this only has two wires. I was intending to use the Maplin's one as a second siren mounted in the engine bay but to date (6 months on), haven't worked out the wiring or had the inclination to do it. We'll see when the weather improves. You could always move the siren (to where is up to you) and extend the wiring. Simple enough job but time consuming if you have to start removing trim, fittings etc..
