My car's key-less entry lock horn confirmation was suddenly put into silent mode. When I press the lock button on my remote, the car will lock and flashes the turn signals three times. But when I press the lock again, the confirmation lock horn honk was gone as it was supposed to honk after pressing the remote lock button twice. Even the seat belt reminder was in silent when driving at certain speed, does not beep anymore, but beeps by the time I put the key on the ignition. How can I reactivate these features back to its factory default?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello,

To reset the system remove the negative battery cable for on hold it to the positive battery terminal this will discharge the capacitors and give the system a chance to hard reboot. Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

Would that turn back my warnings/reminders too, like that seat belt reminder when running at certain speed/distance?

Those items can sometimes be user selected as some people want them and others do not. A power reset should bring them back to the default settings.

Hi, I have tried it already, but it did not work, still in silent. Pressing the lock button once locked all the doors, pressing it twice. Do not have the horn honk confirmation, but I still hear the door locked. Please help.

There are many fuses that run the system. Here is a security system wiring diagram so you can see each fuse and a guide to help you check them:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

20, 12, 10, 15, and 2 if they are all okay it sounds like the alarm module is going out which will need to be programmed by a shop. Can you see the fuses in the wiring diagram or are they too small to see?

Here is the module location. Check out the diagrams (below).

One item I neglected to ask, does the horn work on its own when you hit the horn button?

I ended up disconnecting the harness of the security unit, central locking horn honk is now back again. But alarm disabled now. I guess it must have been disconnected the whole time after I got the car from the previous owner.

I doubt it was disconnected as you had to disconnect it to get the system to honk. More likely is that something in the alarm unit failed and was blocking the horn signal.
Or one of the inputs to the alarm failed and wasn't turning it fully off.
