Default 03 wrx, keyless entry works, alarm does not

I just purchased an 03 wrx, though I also have an 02, so I am familiar with the factory alarm system. The 03 will lock/unlock with the remote, but the exterior lights do not flash. If I lock the car with the remote and open the door, the horn does not sound. The security light on the dash is also not blinking. I tried opening the driver's door and holding down the unlock button to either engage or disengage valet mode, but nothing happens (besides the faint click of relays responding to the unlock request).

Could the car have factory keyless entry but not have the alarm? Does anyone know where the alarm module is located? Both cars have the same larger 2-button remote.

Should the security light on the dash come on when you first turn on the ignition (when all your other dash lights come on)? I would assume so, though mine does not. My next test is to pull the cluster and see if the bulb is bad. I would not imagine that would affect alarm function though.

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
