The power sounder on my car had been removed before I bought it. but the horn that sits next to it used to work when you opened the door with the key after you had locked it with the remote but now only the hazards flash?.
Horn has died as well.

It is very basic - the design probably hasn't changed since GM first started making them in the mid 1920s (at a guess)

If there is no sound from the alarm, replace the standard alarm horn. The powersounder was a vauxhall/uk exclusive and are not found on Opel cars. I have never seen one except on this forum. Alarm works very well without it. As i understand it the only purpose of the power sounder (except setting your car on fire) was to sound the alarm if main battery is disconnected. The bonnet switch will do that job just fine. Will be very hard to disconnect battery without first upsetting the bonnet switch.

Removed both of ours when we had our Omegas after reading on here the problems they can cause best in my opinion to simply do the same.
