I don't know of any basic way of telling if the car has an alarm or not the way i figured mine had one with the help of pree, i locked the car with the fob (Activates the alarm) half hour later i came back and opened the bonnet without unlocking the doors using the fob, alarm goes off then confirming the big question

You can also leave a window open, lock the car and stick your arm in after a few seconds, provided of course that it has the interior scan function. ETIS might be a good place to check too.

I had a Ford alarm installed on my old fiesta with interior scan by the dealer for about £200, was worth it for peace of mind!

I would go with Kurt's suggestion, if there is one fitted you will atleast know it works.

Bonnet is a good one. Did that myself accidently on Saturday. Went out to check the oil and fill the washer bottle, unlocked the bonnet and the alarm goes off. Luckely had my key with me so could turn it off quick. Another one to test if it's got interior sensors is to unlock with the key and get in without turning the ignition on.

Turns out I have one. Sounds awful though. I wouldn't hear that if I were asleep
