I was wondering if when you lock your car with the key, does the horn beep or not. Mine does sometimes and sometimes it does not. Whats the deal with that. I belive it should honk once. Why would mine be doing that. Any ideas. Thanks.
Unless your car is programmed differently by the dealer in some way, the signal for the locking and setting of the alarm is two flashes of the parking and brake lights when it locks and sets, and one flash when it unlocks. When the horn beeps when you're setting it, it means something, either the hood, hatch, doors or I believe the glovebox too, is unsecured. So if it beeps, check to see what's amiss - don't just walk off and assume the car is locked and the alarm is set. This is all covered extensively in the owner's manual.
Good job man. Makes sense. This morning it beebed a few times and i noticed the hood was open a bit. Once i closed it and drove to work and locked it, i didnt beeb. Makes sense now! Wish it beebed when you lock it though to make sure that it is locked. Oh well.
Happy to help - you'll get used to it, it's just different from what your last car did. I'm sure your last car was different from the one before it, too. You'll also get used to looking at the rear of the car for the lights flashing when you arm the alarm.
I know nobody ever reads the owner's manual on anything these days, but if you spent 30 minutes going through it sometime, you'd be surprised at how many questions you don't[/quote] have to ask on this site... it's actually, imo, a well-written book that explains a lot of stuff and how it all works.
