Hello Everyone, I just found this site and it is great. I just got my '05 6s in December.

Can someone tell me if it is possible to disable the horn beeping when I activate the Alarm (without disabling the horn completely)?

I think it is too loud and annoying and would like to disable it.

Thanks for all the help.

Looking forward to checking out the rest of the site.

If you press the "Lock" button on the key fob once, it locks the doors and trunk. Pressing it twice does the same but beeps the horn to give you confirmation. I think that if you press it twice and the horn doesn't sound, it means that either your doors or trunk are not properly closed. I noticed too that if you press the lock button twice too quickly, the horn won't sound for some reason.

Yep, just press it once and you should be fine. Unless the 05's don't have this feature?

Thanks for the responses. Yes the '05 models do have the 1 press-2press option but that is missing the point.

I believe IF I only press the button once it will lock the doors and trunk but IT WILL NOT ARM THE ALARM. So as you can imagine doing this is not an option.

I would like to be able to hit the button 2 times to ARM the ALARM and not have the horn beep.

I hope this make sense and thanks for the help.

I think you do arm the alarm by only press the lock button once. By press it twice you just make sure all the doors are locked by the sound of horn.
I remeber I locked my girlfriend's brother in the car by press it once and the he opened the door from inside, the horn beeped, I think that means the alarm was armed, right?
Hope it helps.

all you have to do is just tell the customers that eveything is fine and whatever the problem is, it is suppose to be like that. (Does not apply to those hard workers who really care about their customers' cars)

Yes, clicking it once will arm the alarm. I tried this out once by locking myself while in the car with the key fob, and the alarm went off when I opened the door from the inside.. simliar to motorolav3's experience above. Clicking twice only provides an audio confirmation. Clicking once also provides a confirmation, with the flashing lights (they won't flash if something isn't closed properly).

I have an 05, and I went out to test it for you. You only need to press the button once. All is locked, and the alarm is armed.

You can't handle THE TOOTH!!!

OK I guess that answers my question. Thanks to all for the quick responses now for my next question ( you will see it in another post).

Thanks again,

Is there any way to enable the horn when the alarm is turned on ? UK spec cars don't have it as standard.

Thanks.

Adam.
