Default BCM Module

Just an FYI for all, I have a 2013 Passat SEL Premium build date 6/2013 and my horn stopped working on it when I would lock the doors via remote or KESSEY. I looked all through the Central Elect-9 and everything was checked that needed to be set for the alarm to sound when you lock the car or when you hit the PANIC button on remote. Took car to the dealer they could not figure it out, they tried to tell that some module do that. I said BS, the car did it when I bought it. They also said my car did not have the horn up front for the feature.... Now I'm pissed... So I told them to contact VW and find out what the issue is. I told them that I think the BCM module is bad, but the tech there said no its not. A week went by and the dealer called me back and told me that my BCM module was bad.... Go figure... Come to find out my car the BCM module controls the car horn when you lock the car or hit the PANIC button... But my wifes car is a 2014 build date 7/2013 and she has the horn that sounds like a bird chirping... See has the horn the up front that this lonely connector is used for.

Glad to hear they're replacing your BCM module.

FYI: The chirping horn (officially dubbed the "meeper" by compu85!!) wasn't OEM on the 2012 (or 2013?). Compu85 installed one on his 2013 and can tell us all more about it if he reads this thread.

Well there's the meeper horn (which I still haven't installed on our car yet), and there's the euro alarm siren which does go "chirp!" when you lock the car. If you hit the panic button it will make a wailing sound, not a horn honking sound.

If her car does have the alarm siren instead of the horn that would be a nice change for '14. The siren has a backup battery in it so if someone sets it off they can't disconnect the battery to stop the alarm.

EDIT: Does the alarm on her car sound like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o84equd7pk8

I wish my NMS did that! That would also be a nice deterrent for home invaders. Keep your fob at your bedside and if you hear an intruder just push the panic button. That will send them running!

No, when I hit the panic button it is definetly a siren going off but not as hi pitched as Euro Siren. It's not even the regular horn going off when you lock or hit the panic button. She must have the beeper horn for the alarm system.

Roger that VeeDub, I will do it today. I tried it again this morning and it does kind of sound like the euro siren in the video now. I think maybe it was that the car was inside the garage and now its outside....Mmmm
