Alarm Retrofit question

Hey guys. Is it possible to just get the siren only as part of the retrofit? This is so I dont need to spend the money on the ultrasonic module etc and save some money. I found a siren for 80$ and was wondering if it was possible to "half ass" the retrofit. Coding I can do myself no problem. I just want the stupid car to ring incase someone smashes the glass

The ultrasonic module is what detects when the glass gets smashed, so you kind need it.

oh, and check for any existing wires under the driver side fender + the hood switch in front of the cabin filter.

Check realoem for parts...
You will surely need the bracket also.

So what will the alarm do exactly without the module? Where can I get a used module from? Brand new is expensive
