No sound from alarm

Hi all,
My alarm thinks it is a silent movie, not only does in not chirp when I open close, but I have also discovered that when I break into it (via boot vacuum ..) the indicators flash until I put the key in and start the engine, but still no sound.
Is there a setting somewhere or should I be looking for something simpler like a disconnected siren ?

The alarm siren has a built in battery which can die .

Two possibilities :
Buy a new siren , not to cheap , or open it up and solder in some batteries .

Do a search for alarm siren , you should get quite a bit of info ..
