Asked by edso Apr 29, 2013 at 01:30 PM about the Hyundai Elantra

Question type: General

When I hit lock twice like the owner's manual says I get no audio response.
My dealer says this is normal on some models I think not. What do you think?

most fobs can be programed either way. reprogram it if you think its worth the aggravation

these things can be changed with your settings---will pull up your instruction manual, but I think it's gonna be easier for you to get to it~

I think the dealer is right. The Elantra does not chirp the horn when locking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmB64KyOTHY

For car, I can set it to mute/unmute by pressing the lock and unlock buttons together. Although it doesn't chirp, it is more of an annoying honk.

some zap the horn, some have a chirp unit under hood on different cars

I have a 2012 Elantra, and it definitely honks when you press the fob a second time. The dealer is blowing smoke up your ass hoping you don't come in for warranty. Check Harsha's comment above about muting to see if there is an issue or if it's something simple.

On my daughter's 2012 Elantra Limited, an under-hood switched (circuit closed when hood is closed) can bend down (away from the hood) cause the circuit to remain open. The switch is located toward the right sideof the car near the radiator. Withthe hood open, try holding the switch closed and locking the car with the remote. If the car chirps you need to mend the switch bracket up a bit. I need to do it periodically on her car.
