It might be possible for your dealer to switch the audible
confirmation on using the VAG tool. However, I'd recommend not doing
it. I'd be annoyed if any time my neighbor comes home a horn beeps
shortly. Especially when I'm asleep.
Why is the visual confirmation not enough for you?

I don't think Henri is talking about the 'confirmation bleep' on setting
the alarm - I think he's concerned that the alarm doesn't make a noise
when it is set of (by someone breaking into his car).
The alarm sounder is separate from the horn and is normally located
somewhere in the rear of the car (left hand side luggage compartment
locker?). I guess that it's possible that the sounder, or the
connection to it, is damaged. One way to check would be to enable the
'confirmation bleep', which can be done using the VAG-COM computer
software/cable. If the bleep (very discrete - I have it set on both my
RS6 and my wife's A2) is heard on locking the car, then the sounder and
its connections are okay.

Then you have a comprehension deficit. Sorry.
Knowing that the sounder ACTUALLY WORKS when you lock the vehicle - might that
give you the clue you need?

It means one of your doors or trunk is not closed fully.
The alarm system on my Audi A4 2.4 functions correctly except there is no
audible sound when the
alarm is activated (by triggering the ultrasonic sensor). The turn indicator
lights flash showing
the alarm system has been triggered, but there is no audible sound. The vehicle
horn works as
Does anybody have information or suggestions get the audible part of the alarm
