    I remember reading that the new Sonata could be set to have the horn beep
    when the car is locked with the remote. But the dealers tech is telling me
    that it can't be done. Is he correct? Thanks

  2. I'm not sure about the Sonata, but if you press the lock button twice on
    an Elantra remote, the car chirps back in addition to flashing the lights.

    Brian, I went out and checked, and my Sonata does also!!! Wonder why the
    tech didn't just tell me it worked that way? He must not have know either.
    I looked in the owners manual and it doesn't say anything about beeping,
    just says press once and the lights flash.
    Thanks for letting me in on this secret.

    It can do it. Go to
    body electrical, BCM. Print the screen, and take it to the dealer. Or, offer
    to show the tech how to change it.

    On my remote ('06 Sonata LX V6) there is the button to lock (with the horn),
    unlock (with the horn) and another silent button for locking and unlocking,
    without the horn chirping.

  6. That's a lot of buttons. My '07 only has the single for each, double hit
    for the horn. I don't have the horn working though as I use the remote from
    the remote starter and the horn got lost. I don't care because I don't lock
    the doors anyway and I don't need a horn to let everyone else know what is
    going on.

    the feature you want is the one where it beeps on the second press of
    the lock button right, and not beeping for each pressing.. Actually
    the sales person who sold me the car told me about this feature. He
    infact pointed out an advantage. If the horn does not sound when you
    press the lock button the second time (within 4 secs) then either the
    trunk or 1 of the doors are not closed properly. I always make it a
    point to use the second press to confirm things are closed... I think
    the lights also don't blink however if you are walking away you won't
    notice that...

    For sure I don't need the horn when I lock the doors at 3:00 AM! LOL

    If your Sonata is like my 2005 XG350L when you hit the button the first time
    it locks the doors, when you hit the button the second time it chirps ( in
    my case ) and ACTIVATES the ALARM SYSTEM it has nothing to do with locking
    the doors with or without the horn

    And it also relocks if you press unlock and never open the vehicle so don't think your slow poker made it to the car in time it's after 30 second s I believe
