I have a 99 9-3 5 speed. I've been getting the SID message "Service Theft Alarm". I'm pretty sure that means its time to change out the alarm batteries. It's a troublesome little project and it will take me longer than most people.

The direct question I have not seen addressed is: will my car start & run if I re-assemble WITHOUT the alarm unit back in the wheel well? Or is there an interlock check of some sort which will keep the car from starting if the alarm unit is disconnected?

Yes it will run without the alarm box....you just wont have a siren/beeps when you lock/unlock the doors.

Yup, just unplug it. But I have been hearing that BBK (or something like that) on ebay rebuilds them for $50. Nick/stx221 had his done a few months back and its working perfectly.
