Hey all,
There was a car alarm installed in my car when I got it and I want to possibly use it. However I am not sure how it works. Like is it one where you can just set off the alarm via a panic button on a remote or does it go off when you try to open the car door?
Is there a way to figure out what I have?
The only clue is the siren that I took out of the engine bay.

I would guess the siren was the only thing left from an old install or something. I mean, unless it came with keychain remotes or something like that, how would you even arm it? What would be the point of a remote that only had a panic mode, anyway? It has to sound when someone tries to get into the car, or it's 100% worthless.

Do you have a remote? Have you located the "brain" of the alarm? Is it even in the car? Unless everything is there and wired up and working properly, including a way to arm/disarm the system, what's the point? If you find all this stuff, it will probably have a model number that you can use to get a manual for it. If you can't find all this stuff, I'd pull the siren out and trash it or just install a new alarm system, one that you know was installed correctly, know how to operate, and know that you can depend on to warn you if someone breaks into your car.

Yea your right. I think if I get a new one installed they would tear out the remains of the old one to so I would kill two birds with one stone. Also about a panic button being useless I totaly agree!!!
However my dad's 04 Honda Civic has a button on the remote that makes the horn start honking...
