I unlocked my A3 w/ Nav+ yesterday, and the stereo system emitted a VERY LOUD horn like tone. The sound was so loud, you could not sit in the car. The only way to shut it off was to turn over the ignition.

Question: Do Audi's have a built-in interior alarm system? I should note that I have had an amp and speakers installed in the system. I called my Audi dealer, they were evasive at first, then admitted to being unaware of such a system. It was an aggravating conversation.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks,

Chris

A3/Nav+

I don't know about A3's, but the alarm on A4's is so pointlessly quiet it won't deter anyone (I can't even hear the alarm on my A4 from inside the house and it's only feet away).

It sounds like a previous owner has had an aftermarket alarm fitted to your A3, some of them have interior sounders that are over 120dBA (very, very loud!!!).
