you dont have any remote for locking and unlocking the door? Are you the orig owner? Did you lose it?I dont have key less entry. I dont think my car is equipped with it. I just want to disable the beep. let me try to restate the process.
1. park car and turn off
2. open door.
3. Hit the lock button on the inside of the door.
4. get out can close door.
The beep occurs when the door is closed.
Yep me too! I could not wait to disable that feature,you dont have any remote for locking and unlocking the door? Are you the orig owner? Did you lose it?
If you look on this page (scroll down), you will see that your year (99) had Keyless entry standard, so it sounds like to me, if you dont have a remote for the doors, it just got lost. The remote is how you would disable the chirp/horn. And yes - annoying sound I disabled on mine as soon as I got it.
Whose brilliant idea was that noise?
Nothing like parking and having your car announce "Hey everyone, I just parked right here and the doors are locked because there just MAY be something in here worth stealing"
I'm amazed how many people complain about this feature. Jump out of the car in the middle of a thunderstorm running into the house, so you hit the button to make sure it is locked. You hear a beep as you are running towards the house, you don't have to turn around and see the lights flash to know it is locked. My first car had keyless entry, but did not chip and did not flash the lights to let you know it was locked... it was incredibly annoying.I am amazed at how many people don't know they can turn off the horn/chirp feature. ?
NopeI am amazed at how many people don't know they can turn off the horn/chirp feature. I have told them to look in their owner's manual for the procedure and they look at me like I am from another planet. Am I the only one who buys a new car and reads the owner's manual?
My 2000 used the horn and it was terribly annoying. Startling people walking by, waking babies in neighbors' houses (and I live pretty far out), making my golden retriever wet himself (luckily I have the rubber mat in the hatch), making my wife jump when that horn beeped. I exaggerate a bit, but the horn on my Chevy Suburban does the same thing if you hit the lock button twice (not the first time) and it is less annoying than the Subie - which I deactivated of course.I guess I could understand the horn getting annoying
Many people buy these cars secondhand, or get them as hand-me-downs. Remotes get lost, as do manuals... unfortunately not everyone is inclined to go download one online (even right from the Subaru website!)[...] Am I the only one who buys a new car and reads the owner's manual?
