Just to add to wkeatonjr, yes that's the way it's designed, one press of the button will lock vehicle but not arm the vehicle, pressing twice will honk horn (if you choose that setting) and arm the vehicles theft deterent system.wkeatonjr said:Yes, it is working correctly.
Ahh, I think your right!!! That does make more sense - somewhat - could work either way I guess[/color]wkeatonjr said:I thought the car was armed on the first click of the remote and the second click with horn was just an audible confirmation. I need to read the manual again on this one.
The manual doesn't really say specifically. It does say the anti theft system will arm 30 sec after pressing the lock on the RKE. So I tested it with horn alert on and off and either way the system armed 30 seconds after pressing the button on the remote (light on dash started to blink indicating it was armed).POLRCUB said:Ahh, I think your right!!!

My deduction is that the horn/lights are for confirmation in the event you are not sure that you actually pressed the lock button far enough, forgot to push it or the signal didn't reach the car; you can press it again and get lights or horn or both to confirm the lock.ljlevin07 said:Thx for your responses. If that's normal than why is there a vehicle setting for both light and horn to activate when locking with remote? that doesn;t make sense to me.
Me either, but it could be a tad annoying in a busy mall parking lot with a lot of beeping going on with people going in.wkeatonjr said:I also expected the horn/lights on the first press so I am still not sure why it was designed that way.
What did the vehicle do before? Please feel free to contact me and I will look into this for you. Thank you.Phantm006 said:Very recently, within the last two months, I have noticed that when I exit the vehicle and I push the lock button on the remote once, the horn sounds. I thought it was just a fluke but it has done it several times; As recently as last night.
I would be happy to double check on this for you with the last eight of your VIN. Contact me privately for more assistance.ljlevin07 said:So Tricia what is it supposed to do. Manual doesn't say hit it twice
Beforehand i have to hit it once to lock and twice for the horn confirmation. But now it's one for all. First button push. Really weird.Chevrolet Customer Svc said:What did the vehicle do before? Please feel free to contact me and I will look into this for you. Thank you.
