    Well, I recently found this out the other day.

    Tested the alarm by leaving one door open and locking it, the indicators all flash, but no noise?

    Any help would be appreciated

    I just looked.

    Theres a cable that runs into the siren, and then that runs down the l/h side of the battery. But I can't follow it, where should it be connected to on the other end?

    Black box behind the glovebox, 4 pin white plug will coming through the bulkhead. Make sure its plugs in and each pin is making a good contact
