Default Make the horn go BEEP when you lock the door with the remote?

Hi guys, I'm new here. I own a 08 H3 Lux. I love the car in every way, except when I'm leaving the car,i hit the lock button on the remote and no beep sound from the horns to confirm that the doors are locked!

I always 2nd guess myself and turn around and look at the lights flash to make sure the doors indeed locked.

so my question is, is there any way to make the horn go beep when i hit the lock button on the remote?


thanks in advance
Joseph

We did that with our '08 H3. I guess the default is no beep and having it beep means not having to do what you said- turn around to verify the lights flashed.
The procedure is in the owner's manual and, as I recall, is quite simple. Sorry I don't have the manual in front of me. It's in the car and it's 5:00AM (my 2 year old woke me up) and freezing outside.
Good luck with your new Alpha!

Yes you can have the horn sound, check the manual. If you can't find the page or need more help let me know I can go out at get my manual and walk you though it.

Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Feedback

This feature allows you to program your Remote
Keyless Entry (RKE) feedback to a preferred
setting.
To set your choice for this feature, perform the
following steps:
1. With the engine off, turn the key to LOCK.
Do not remove the key from the ignition.

2. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons
on the RKE transmitter at the same time.
Hold both buttons until the DIC display shows
the current RKE feedback mode.

3. To view the next available mode, press and
hold the reset stem for about two seconds.
Release the reset stem and press and
hold again to view each mode.
4. Once the desired mode is shown on the DIC
display, briefly press the reset stem to set
your choice. The DIC display will then clear.

The following are the available modes:
RFA 1 (default): This mode flashes the parking
lamps when you press the lock or unlock
buttons on the RKE transmitter.

RFA 2: This mode flashes the parking lamps and
sounds the horn when you press the lock button
on the RKE transmitter. This mode also flashes the
parking lamps when you press the unlock button
on the RKE transmitter.

RFA 3: This mode flashes the parking lamps
and sounds the horn when you press the lock or
unlock buttons on the RKE transmitter.

RFA 4: This mode disables RKE feedback. There
will be no feedback when you press the lock or
unlock buttons on the RKE transmitter.
