Arm / Disarm beep

Afternoon all.
I suspect this has been done to death, but I can not find a solution.

I have a 2002 GTV with the standard Meta System alarm (small, round, separate key fob with button in middle)
The alarm works fine. Once armed and left for a short period, opening the boot or doors using the key in the lock sounds the alarm - so the siren works.
Problem is, when arming / disarming no noise is made. The hazzards flash, but no noise.
I would like it to beep when I do this.
Reading around it would seem as if this is a setting on the alarm. Problem is, I haven't got the slightest idea how you go about changing that setting.
Does anyone here know?

All help appreciated..

I don't think they beep, the later ones do (fob on key), you can actually built the beep in yourself if you are handy with electronics.

Re: Arm / Disarm beep

Mine doesn't beep normally, only if a door/bonnet/boot is not shut properly does it beep. Then it beeps 4 times (quite loud).

I've actually got a problem with it as shown in this thread

Re: Arm / Disarm beep

In order to comply with CE conformity certificates, no auto alarm destined for EU markets is allowed to have an activation/deactivation buzzer since 1st November 1997.

Most manufacturers however, supply the equipment with the buzzer deactivated via a user menu. As long as you know how to acces your user menu you should be able to activate the buzzer on most alarms.

Hate the things myself. Nothing worse than waking up to a blip, blip, in the middle of the forking night!!!
