Question 2002 Limited edition Chirp new owner! Help

HI, im having trouble getting this to work, i found a 2004 manual and tried the
Ign on
Unlock 4- 10 sec
Lock + unlock

release
Thing it went beep, but the chirp still isnt doing anything.
I dont have a manual, i will try to get one, but as ive only had the car 3 days im still finding my way round it.
Also should i have to have my seat belt plugged in for me to operate the ignition, i heard i had to have the clutch in but nothing about the seat belt.
Any help would be greatfully recieved.

I love the shape of the car, been looking at getting one for ages then ping , one appear just at the right time.

question for you, when you lock the doors with the remote, is there a red blinking light on the instrument cluster?
it will blink fast for about 30 seconds then slow down to a blink every 2 or 3 seconds.

that was just to make sure you actually have factory security.
if you didn't have it, you wouldn't be able to turn on/off horn honk confirmation.

Ok, tried the switiching thin again, console beeped, but nothing.
Today i opened the passenger door with the key . the hazards started to flash but no sound.
I recon the chirp sounder is part of the alarm thing, and its been disconnected , any ideas on where to look .
thanks

Belive i may have solved the problem.
On the UK version , there is a fuse in the engine bay fuse box, that disconnects the siren.
This appears to be missing Fuse #18, ( 30 second check this morning before getting a lift to work!)
ill replace this and let you know.

Uh-oh.
If fuse were bad, I'd think you may have found the problem, but with fuse removed, I think you have another problem - hope I'm wrong.
There is probably a reason prior owner removed the fuse rather than replace it, like alarm wouldn't stop.

probably true. so i will not attempt a fuse replacement at 6 am tomorrow!
I have heard the alarms are over sensitive in the uk. There must be some way of tweaking them.
Cheers for the heads up though.

I just asked the same question in another thread and someone confirmed that UK PT's dont have the chirp. I have now asked if anyone knows what has been done to the alarm unit to see if I can get it working.

Wonder why they removed from UK market place.
