Default How do I turn off the "honk"

Hi all, does anyone know how to go about turning off the "honk" that accompanies the remote locking on a '97 SE? I live in a quiet small town, and every time I go to lock my car, I draw everyone'* attention to it. Thanks!

Push the lock button as you are getting out of the car.

right, that works when I am alone but I was hoping to continue to use my remote so that when I take the baby out of the backseat, I am not forced to reopen the front door just to lock it. Especially when the key fob is still right in my hand....

I hear ya. I'm not sure but maybe it can be shut off within the driver information center (DIC), if you have it?

Is that the little car shaped block on my dash? All it is good for is some kind of check engine light...it doesn't even tell me if the doors are ajar...

I did find elsewhere on here, someone mentioned using the manual to program the remote, but no one ever really elaborated on it, and I don't have a manual...

Here ya go... Use the following link to register your vehicle, then you get access to an online owners manual. The info you need should be in there.
https://www.mygmlink.com/main/US/en/...?vehid=1935830

Once registered, go to "Glovebox" on the left hand side, then "Owner'* & Service Manuals"

Ok here is how to change or remove the honk when you press lock on the remote.

Whilst sitting in the drivers seat, hold down the lock button on your door then press the remotes trunk release button.

The trunk should not open, but you will hear a honk for each press of the trunk button. There is 5 different settings and the factory default is number 5 (lights flash for lock/unlock and horn honks for lock).

I set mine to 3 (lights flash on lock but not unlock - no honk).

Hope this helps anyone else that is annoyed at the honk!!

Security Feedback
This provides feedback to the driver when the vehicle
receives a command from the remote keyless entry
transmitter. The following modes may be selected:
 Mode 1: No feedback when locking or
unlocking vehicle.
 Mode 2: Parking lamps and the daytime running
lamps will flash twice when unlocking the vehicle
and flash once when locking the vehicle.
 Mode 3: Horn chirps when all doors are unlocked
(second unlock button press) and when locking
the vehicle.
 Mode 4: Parking lamps and the daytime running
lamps will flash twice each time the button with the
unlock symbol is pressed; the horn chirps when all
doors are unlocked. Parking lamps and the exterior
lamps flash once and the horn chirps when locking
the vehicle.
Vehicles are delivered programmed in Mode 2. To change
to another mode:
1. Keep all doors closed, vehicle in PARK (P) and the
ignition on throughout this procedure.
2. Press and hold the driver’* power door lock switch in
the LOCK position through Step 4.
3. Press the button with the trunk symbol on the transmitter.
The transmitter will remain in its current mode.
4. Press the button with the trunk symbol again. Each
time the transmitter’* trunk button is pressed, the
mode will advance by one, going from Mode 2 to 3
to 4, etc. and the horn will chirp as feedback.
5. Release the power door lock switch. The security
feedback will remain in the most recent mode selected.

This procedure changes the mode for only the
transmitter used to change this setting. The procedure
will need to be repeated for the second transmitter.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Driver Information
Center (DIC), you must program this feature through the
DIC. See “Driver Information Center Personalization
Programming” in the Index.

OR

DIC Personalization Programming
The DIC can be used to program the following
personalization features available with your vehicle:
 Automatic Door Locks
 Window Lockout
 Security Feedback
 Delayed Locking
 Perimeter Lighting
 Memory Seats
 Parallel Park Assist Mirror (Tilt Mirror)
 Driver ID
The DIC is used to program the personal choices of
two drivers. The drivers are recognized as DRIVER #1
and DRIVER #2. You will let the DIC know which
driver you are by using your remote keyless entry
transmitter or by pressing the appropriate memory seat
control button located on the driver’* door or choosing
the driver with the DIC. Each remote keyless entry
transmitter was preprogrammed to belong to
DRIVER #1 or DRIVER #2. Each transmitter
may be programmed differently for each driver.

When you press the button with the unlock symbol on
your transmitter, the DIC will automatically change
driver numbers and the vehicle will recall the
personalization settings that were last made to
correspond to your transmitter, including your radio and
comfort control settings. See “Comfort Controls
Personalization” in the Index.
If you unlock the vehicle using your door key instead of
your transmitter, the DIC will not change drivers and
will recall the information from the last transmitter use
or the last driver change using the memory seat controls.
If this happens and you were not the last driver of the
vehicle, simply press your correct driver number on the
memory seat controls or press the button with the
unlock symbol on your transmitter or select the
personalization programming mode and choose the
correct driver number.
Use the following steps for personalization
programming instructions.
1. Turn the ignition on and keep the transaxle in
PARK (P).
2. Press the MODE button to reach personalization
programming display.
3. Press the SELECT button to enter personalization
programming mode.
4. The first choice to be made will be DRIVER ID 1 or
2. Press the RESET button to toggle between your
selections within a display and SELECT to choose
the current selection and move on to the next
personalization feature.
You are now in the selection mode and the DIC is ready
to program your personal choices in memory.
Each feature that can be personalized will appear in
the display. Once you have made a selection for a
feature, the DIC will move on to the next
personalization feature.

Scroll through the following messages and
feature options:
 AUTO DOOR LOCKS - OFF/ON
 UNLOCK - OFF/ON
 UNLOCK - KEY OFF/PARK
 DOOR TO UNLOCK - DRIVER/ALL
 WINDOW LOCKOUT - R + PASS/REAR
 KEYLESS FEEDBACK - OFF/ON
 LIGHTS FEEDBACK - OFF/ON

 DELAYED LOCKING - OFF/ON
 PERIMETER LIGHTS - OFF/ON
 PERIMETER LIGHTS - TIMEOUT 15 SEC
 SEAT RECALL - OFF/ON
 RECALL POSITION - MEMORY/EXIT
 TILT MIRROR - OFF/ON
 DRIVER ID - OFF/ON

Security Feedback
By choosing different combinations of these selections,
you can choose the type of transmitter activated
feedback when locking and unlocking your vehicle with
your transmitter. Each time you make a selection by
pressing the RESET button, press the SELECT button to
record your choice.
 KEYLESS FEEDBACK - OFF/ON
 LIGHTS FEEDBACK - OFF/ON
 HORN FEEDBACK - OFF/ON
If you choose ON for KEYLESS FEEDBACK you will
also need to choose LIGHTS and/or HORN FEEDBACK.
You can select the following modes:
 If you choose OFF for KEYLESS FEEDBACK,
you will receive no security feedback when locking
or unlocking your vehicle.
 If you choose ON for KEYLESS FEEDBACK and
ON for LIGHTS FEEDBACK, the exterior lamps
will flash twice when unlocking your vehicle and
once when locking your vehicle.
 If you choose ON for KEYLESS FEEDBACK and
ON for HORN FEEDBACK, your horn will chirp
when locking and unlocking your vehicle.
 If you choose ON for KEYLESS, LIGHTS and
HORN FEEDBACK, your exterior lamps will flash
twice at the first unlock button press, your exterior
lamps will flash twice and your horn will chirp once
at the second unlock button press, and the exterior
lamps will flash once and the horn will chirp once
when locking your vehicle.
