Remote door lock confirmation

    When I lock the doors of my 2007 Santa Fe remotely and press the key fob
    button twice for confirmation my horn blasts quite loudly. I would
    definitely prefer a chirp or soft horn blast.

    Does anyone know if this confirmation sound can be programmed by the dealer
    (or myself)?

    Not sure if there's a way to soften the noise... the sound is merely a
    pulse of the car's regular horn so it probably only makes the one

    One thing to keep in mind is that the second button press w/horn blast
    is totally for show. The car is AS locked after one button press as
    it is after two. All the second button press does is sound that horn
    and flash the light. You can eliminate the noise by pressing the
    button only once, not twice.

    Also keep in mind that this is a simple alarm system. As with many
    factory-installed alarms, it offers limited options and limited
    protection. In other words, don't get too hung up if it cannot do
    what a more sophisticated system might do. This one is not going to
    have motion sensing or engine cutoff. Pretty much all it does is
    watch for someone to open a door.

    PDMR I think you may be wrong about the second button press doing nothing
    but make noise, according to my dealer the first press locks the doors and
    the second press arms the alarm system. I have a XG350L which may be
    differant than a Santa Fe but I dont think so........ HYUNDAITECH

    Well, I don't have my owner's manual in front of me, but it basically
    said the second press was only to make the horn "confirmation"

    Admittedly, I own a Sonata and the other person has a Santa Fe, so
    they could be different. But they are built on the same line and
    should use the same or similar ECMs.

    I don't know how your XG350 works but it is easy to test yourself: sit
    in the car, lock the doors with the keyfob -one press- wait a moment
    and exit the car without unlocking anything. That should set off the
    alarm. Try it again with two presses.
