Default 1999 9-3 Alarm Module

The Service Theft Alarm message has appeared on my 1999 9-3 4 door
Would like to disconnect the Siren Alarm Module. Does anyone know where it is located? I looked in the left front wheel area but it's not there.
Thanks I removed the left front wheel and well liner but the siren module is not above the washer reservoir.
? location in a '99 9-3.
Thanks

I do not recall seeing an siren in the manual (or under my hood). Are you sure this isn't an after-market alarm system?

(I could be wrong...)

It is in the driver side wheel well to the rear of the tire not toward the front.

You may just need to replace the alarm's battery. But you should still diagnose with a tech 2.

I have the same problem with my 9-3 the alarm keeps going off, its annoying, plus I don't want to get my neighbors mad.

My question is:

Can I just cut of the wires to the siren?

Or can I just take out the batteries and leave it that way?

..and will the it affect the cars running in any way?


I really don't need the alarm anymore, and I just don't want to spend unecessary money to fix it. I just had a large repair it set me back a lot, so I just don't want to keep throwing money in it that I don't have to.

It should be the black circle behind the fender on the top picture here.

You could also remove the alarm computer. I believe it sits under the carpet under the drivers side seat in the NG900's and OG9-3's

It has a connector that you can disconnect and then just leave in place.

You should be able to reach up into the wheel well behind the driver's wheel and feel around to find it.

I opened part of the drivers side wheel well, even reached around for wire and stuff, couldn't find it at all.

I looked at the picture on the pdf and it should be right above the window washer reservior, but its not there.

I know its somewhere in the driver side wheel area, since I can hear it chirp there when I press the alarm.

Okay I found the alarm, its toward the rear of the wheel well.

Its the same square box like in the pdf picture. But for the life of me I can't pull out the connector. I tried and tried for an hour, I can reach it but can't pull it out.

You have to push the red part of the connector up to get it to disconnect. This is the same type of connector used on the DIC. You have to open it in the same way. I use a small flat head screwdriver to lift the red top.

Thanks for all the help. I finally go it out. I had to remove the entire cover that went over the wheel well to get access to it. Or else the way it was set up there was no way the remove the siren just by reaching in there. The angle was to difficult.

The computer on my Saab is still saying to service alarm, but I just press the button to cancel it. The key remote still works, its just there is no longer a chirping sound when the door is locked.

IIRC, the Service Theft Alarm message is a yearly-timed message, just like the Time for Service message. You might check the owners manual to see if it can be cleared from the SID... Ron
