2005 Hyundai Elantra 'siren' fuse question


My cars 'siren' (theft/panic alarm) would sometimes go off on its own. I found a fuse that was labeled ECU, which in the manual said it is the 'siren, PCM' (10A). I pulled it, and the siren is dead now.

I drove it for awhile and all seems well. The only thing I'm thinking is the PCM part of the labeling. Is this something to be concerned about?

If everything else is working ok, then leave the fuse out.

PCM on other vehicles would mean "Powertrain Control Module", but vehicle manufacturers as a rule NEVER do anything the same, so I assume it means something different in this case?

Thanks. I was thinking along the same lines. I didn't notice any difference in how the car drove or shifted.
