    Do i have the standard or upgrade alarm?

    So i was reading a thread just now, and it says yeah i have the upgraded alarm it doesnt beep, it chirps..? I then found out that the standard alarm also has keyless entry and shock sensativity. My invoice and the sticker on my door says i have the upgraded one? But mine beeps, i would really like it if mine chirped.. but it doesnt. oh yeah and the sensativity sucks!So which do i have? THanks

    What year is your car? I believe all "upgrade" (from remote lock) alarms for 2002 and possibly some 2003 cars work off the horn. Meanwhile later models get the siren added. The sensitivity can be adjusted.

    The upgraded alarm still uses a horn. I installed one on my car, and you put in another horn that bolts to the right strut tower and hangs in the void over the turbo. There are a couple of relays and a black box to install, too. I didn't like the horn noise, either, so I just run it in silent mode and watch the parking lights. Once blink for lock, two for unlock.

    Edit: there's a sensitivity adjust for the shock sensor, I think it's in the center console next to the parking brake. I didn't mess with it, as I was happy enough with the sensitivity out of the box.
