Default Making horn honk when pushing key FOB??????

Is there any way to make my horn honk for a split second (like newer cars do) when I press lock button on my key FOB. I just hate having to listen real closely to tell if my doors locked when I pushed the lock button.

Thanks

I'm no wiring or electric genius but a simple way to do this would be to have the power locks and horn wired together somehow. Granted there'* a little more to it than that since the horn only honks when locked with the fob.

Check the Owners Manual. I know I can set up my 98 to do it. The instructions were there....

Hmm... Trav just asked about doing this. I'll look at the schematics here in a second and come up with something.

Doesn't look to hard if you have twilight sentinal... i'll have to see where some wores go....

Just a single pulse of the parking lights and the horn is all he wants. four relays will get that done.

I do have twilight sentinal, soooo, if you figure something out I would be happier than John Kerry winning the election.


Thanks

The keyless system has input from an antenna, and then sends a signal out the the various systems. Using that signal, instead of the power locking systems signal would be best. Otherwise everytime you lock/unlock your car, key fob or by hand, you'll do the horn and/or lights.

Take the Lock signal from the keyless unit, and run a patch wire from it to the parking lamp relay, and/or the horn relay. That will pulse them when you hit the buttons on the keyless.
