Is there a way to silence or shorten the "beep when using keyless entry? One beep is fine, but the four when unlocking all doors is a bit excessive.

Keyless entry, I would assume is part of the SAP. Normally indicating that one would not use a key in the ignition. Do you have a SAP?

No SAP. I believe creso's comments will work. I'd prefer to keep the 1 chirp, but I think I'd rather have 0 chirps then 4 when I unlock all doors.

Thank you for your help! I'll post again after I get a chance to try this out.

I've been trying this same sequence all week with no success! Am I doing something wrong? Or is it a different procedure for the 2013 model? I checked the manual and all it says it to contact the dealer!

creso, you followed the steps exactly??? I wonder what I'm doing wrong?:confused:
Not sure what you are doing wrong. This same procedure also worked on my 2012 & 2010 Outback.

I suggest taking it to the dealer to have them make the change with their OBD tools.

I believe that Step 2 should be:
2. Press and HOLD unlock door switch
3. Insert key
4. Pull key OUT & re-insert it 5 times
5. Open and close driver door.

At least for me, I had to hold down before proceeding to step 3. I wanted to re-enable the beeps.

Holy crap. I don't know what I did right but this worked... after trying like 5 times.

Thanks!

when I had the viper 4204 remote start installed, it's fob unlocks all doors with a single beep, so I stopped using the OB's buttons. Viper FTW. :)

Does this just silence the opening beeps only or does it silence the locking beeps too pls?

Is it possible to silence just the opening but not closing pls?

Thx

I also find the 4 beeps irritating on my '12. Unfortunately you can only silence it completely for either lock or unlock, there is no further customization.
