Recently, my car (2012 Suzuki Estilo Vxi) alarm has stopped producing sound (ie. the 'beep' when locking/unlocking/triggering). We've verified the software setup and it is not muted from there.
Having had it inspected by 2 workshops, we were told it is due to the 'siren' having malfunctioned, needing to be replaced. So, I had a few questions:
1. Is it typical for these alarms to fail in the space of less than 4 years?
2. Is replacing the siren a safe, reliable way to fix the issue?
3. Approx. how much should this job cost?
The alarm is a Maruti Genuine Accessory that was installed from the factory when we bought the vehicle.
Ps. It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been reading some great stuff recently!
