Horn honks twice when unlocking

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just bought my van, and my 2014 TC XLT honks loudly twice when I unlock and once when I lock. It's really going to bug the neighbors, as I live in a triplex. I can't find any info on how to disable. I tried the Ford 'hold unlock and lock until the blinkers flash" thing and no changes. All Ive heard is it must be an aftermarket alarm, but I cannot find evidence of this and I have an OEM key.

 

Any ideas?

 

Many thanks!

Here is a link to the owners manual.  You may find info on how to change it.

Until then, you can go "old school" and insert the key in the door lock and manual lock/unlock.  

 

I'm fairly certain that it can be changed by re-programming.  But thats a bit more involved and requires some equipment.

Great thanks, I'll report back. Actually when I use the key it starts honking like I broke in 😕

Can't find anything about it in the manual, unfortunately. I wonder if there is an app I can reprogram with an OBD module? Thanks

My 2014 XLT doesn't honk the horn when I lock it . . . . unless I press the lock button twice.  One press, it locks the doors and flashes the lights, two pushes it locks, flashes and honks, but just once

 

So . . . . it must be programmable  -  I'd check with a Ford dealer

Just found out it's an aftermarket alarm, had my mechanic rip it out as it was causing electrical issues in addition I found out

 

Thanks!

My 2016 also starts honking if I use the key to get in AND am slow to put key into the ignition switch. Pressing the alarm button on key fob does shut the honking.
