WHY DOES MY ELECTRONIC LOCK AND ALARM SYSTEM NO LONGER PRODUCE BEEP SOUND EVEN IF THE LIGHTS FLASHES?

2008 Kia Rio • 39,800 miles

When I remote-lock the car and also when I set the alarm system, there is no more beep sound as it used to. But the lights still flash. Thanks in advance, for the help.

Did you test if the alarm sounds when it is triggerred?

Check your manual for the resetting the system. Most probably the warning beep has been set to mute meaning you won't hear any beeping noise.

I could not find any reference for the system so I am not able to tell you how. Check the owner's manual for the resetting the system.

The other possibility is a failed or disconneted beeper.
