    Alarm audiable "beep" dying?

    My 05 wrx has a factory alarm that makes the single "beep" when armed and double "beep, beep" when disarmed (I guess most imprezas do that). 2 days ago I noticed the beeping became weak, almost as if it's running out of juice. Is there a separate battery that powers the alarm?

    No. You can test this yourself by setting off the alarm and disconnecting the battery.

    Do you mean the lock/unlock chirp? If so, mine is now non-functional/intermittent/faint/perfectly-fine depending on what mood it is in.

    Exactly that, the chirp. Mine seems to be moody as well, it was barely audible yesterday but just fine this morning and then very faint after 15 minutes. You don't happen to know the reason and/or solution by any chance?

    Unfortunately no, and it's not very high on my to do list at the moment. It is rather comical sometimes, the anemic chirp.

    I read on somewhere that the "chirper" dies after a while due to corrosion. This might be the problem. IIRC the guy took it apart and soldered a couple of connections to fix it.
