Weird Alarm Problem

So last night my friend and I get out of the goat, close the doors, and i lock the car. When i push the lock button, it locks, but then honks 3 times really quick. I unlock, lock again and it honks. 3rd times a charm and locks normally. WTF?

Mine does that too, but only when I press the lock button while a door is still open. I've never had it happen if both doors are completely shut.

I think you can turn off the horn chirping by going in your settings. I cannot recall the steps sitting here but I am reasonably sure you can turn it off. Mine is off. Same way with unlocking the car's passenger side door from two clicks to one click of the button.

If you lock the car with the passenger door open the horn will go off.
If your trunk is a jar and the doors are locked, and you lift the trunk lid the horn will go off as well.

Did it just start doing this or has it been doing this from the time you got it?

If it just started doing this perhaps the settings got messed up? Try unplugging the battery waiting a few mins and reconnecting it... Let the computer reset itself.

If you haven't, I'd go in the settings and disable the horn chirp features. If it still does it.... Let the service guys handle it. Haunted by Spuks.

My goat did the same thing. Make sure that both of your doors are LOCKING all the way after you press the lock button...my passenger door wasn't locking properly (door actuator was broken). It's the car's way of telling you that it's not entirely secure despite your alarm being active. Hope that helps!

This just happened to me. I then realized that my door was not closed all the way. It's a good security mechanism.

It sounds like you have a intermitten door lock actuator problem. My driverside door lock did that sometimes. I took it to the dealer and had it replace problem fixed.

I had the same thing to happen, once. I believe there was a message
on the DIC about the hood being opened. I sprayed lube on the hood switch, and all is well.
