Dodge Caliber alarm system malfunction - false alerts

Dodge Caliber - DodgeForum.com - dodgeforum.com
Dear all,

I'm Markus from Germany.

My wife has a '08 Dodge Caliber, 2.0 CRD.

Since a few weeks we have false alerts from the alarm system as well as a drained battery after 2-3 days not using the car.

The authorized workshop told me that there is a battery in the alarm horn/siren which is getting weak when getting older.

They also told me that the battery can't be replaced. They offered to change the alarm horn/siren, which will cost approx. 500USD.

As this is a lot of money compared to the residual value of the car, my question would be:

What will happen if I just unplug the horn/siren? Will this be detected as manipulation and engage the immobilizer?

Or can I just do so?

Thanks for any answer, comment, etc.

Markus
