As there are a lot of gen3's with scorpion alarms out there I thought it would be useful to put this link to the manual up.

Good call scout-but always remember folks-if it's been disconnected-it's not worth fixing

Sorry if this is a dumb question but where is the alarm siren/wiring located in the car ?

Mine has scorpion fobs, only one of which lights up when the buttons are pressed, but neither button seems to do anything as far as switching the alarm on or off.

If its knackered I'll leave it as I don't like alarms anyway as a rule, but if it just needs resetting I wouldnt mind having a go - would just like to see if its been disconnected first before I try to do anything with it if I knew where to look for the box ! :)

Aha !

Just been and looked - the "welded" cover has been removed and then screwed back on and the alarm loom has been taped up - there's no alarm siren/box there at all ! :mrgreen:

There is a comment on one of the dealer service invoices from a couple of years ago that a new alarm unit was needed at a cost of £470 - I guess they just removed it and never bothered

It would appear so.

Doesnt bother me to be honest - alarms don't work as a deterrent in my opinion and as cars get older they are typically responsible for a lot of electrical issues.

There are plenty of other ways to immobilise a car without an alarm which no one pays any attention to anyway ;)

If its been disconnected then there was a problem, Hyundai didn't fix them but replaced them with a different make when still under warrenty so what hes saying is if its dead then there is no point fixing it as it would cost a fortune if you could find the spares and would be cheaper to replace.

Also worth mentioning that if you're here to figure out how to turn the blip noise on when activating/deactivating the alarm, don't bother, i did only to find it sounds like a 20p buzzer from maplins, and quickly went back to just lights...
