    Alarm question

    I've got a question for people that know alot about alarms.

    I have the vxl thatcham cat 1 alarm on my car, but when the alarm goes off it's the siren (power sounder) and the indicators. Shouldn't the horn sound as well?

    Yes a horn should go too. Check that it's pluged in. It's located just under the skuttle panel on the drivers side
