Do I push it once to lock it, or do I need to push it twice? I have always pushed them twice to hear the horn beep. My friend has a high dollar alarm and when he locks it, beeps.

Is there any difference in the alarm if you just push it once or twice to get the horn honk?

I always thought the horn blowing was to alert you the car was indeed locked, I always look at my locks when locking, no need to hear the beap.

The alarm system is activated whenever the car is locked.
Pushing the remote once, locks the car. Pushing it twice causes the horn to beep to alert you that the car is locked.

I'm not as lazy as you other folks, I actually just press the lock button inside the car when I'm getting out. Geez!

I thought I read somewhere, maybe the owners manuel that pushing the remote once locks the car and the that the second push which causes the horn to go off is to help you find your car if you are having trouble finding it (like in a big parking lot or something) but I could be wrong. The antitheft I think actually doesn't turn off until you put the correct key into the ignition.

Locking the doors

1. Press and release to lock all the doors. Note: The interior lamps
will turn off (unless the dome lamp control is in the full-up position),
and the turn signal lamps will flash if all doors, trunk and hood (if
equipped with active anti-theft system) are closed and locked. If the
vehicle is not equipped with the active anti-theft system, the turn signal
lamps will flash if all doors and the trunk are closed and locked.

2. Press and release again within three seconds to confirm that all
the doors are closed and locked. Note: The doors will lock again, the
horn will chirp once and the turn signal lamps will flash once more.
If any of the doors, trunk or hood (if equipped with active anti-theft
system) are not properly closed the horn will make two quick chirps and
the turn signal lamps will not flash. If the vehicle is not equipped with
the active anti-theft system, the horn will make two quick chirps and the
turn signal lamps will not flash if the doors and the trunk are not closed
and locked.

Press twice within three seconds. The horn will chirp and the turn
lamps will flash. It is recommended that this method be used to locate
your vehicle, rather than using the panic alarm.

Owners Manual page 87

ACTIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED) pages 94-95

The active anti-theft system is designed to warn you in the event of an
unauthorized entry to your vehicle and is also designed to help prevent
the unwanted towing of the vehicle.

When the vehicle is locked and armed, the active anti-theft system
monitors the following:

• Doors
• Hood
• Trunk
• Movement inside the vehicle
• Change in vehicle inclination

Note: The active anti-theft system includes a motion detection system
which monitors the passenger cabin and a vehicle incline sensor which
detects changes in vehicle attitude.
The interior motion detection and vehicle incline sensing systems
will operate only when the vehicle is locked using the remote
keyless entry transmitter or when using the power door lock
control with the accompanying door open and all doors then
become closed. For convertible vehicles, the convertible top must
be in the fully closed and latched position for the interior motion
sensing system to arm. If you lock the vehicle using the key in the
driver door key cylinder, the system will monitor the doors,
trunk, and hood but the motion sensing and vehicle incline
sensing will not arm.
Do not arm the interior motion detection system if movement within the
vehicle is likely to occur. Additionally, do not arm the vehicle incline
sensing system when the vehicle is in transport.
For proper operation of the interior motion detection system, ensure all
windows are closed prior to arming the system. This will help prevent
accidental alarm activation due to external influences and ensure proper
interior motion detection. Additionally, the interior motion sensing
system will not arm if either door or the trunk is ajar.
If there is any potential active anti-theft problem with your vehicle,
ensure ALL remote entry transmitters are taken to an authorized
dealer to aid in troubleshooting.
Arming the system
When armed, the active anti-theft system is designed to notify you of an
unauthorized entry. When unauthorized entry or towing occurs, the
system will flash the turn signal lamps and interior lamps and sounds the
security horn.
The system is ready to arm whenever the key is out of the ignition. Any
of the following actions will arm the alarm system:
• Press the remote transmitter lock control one time to arm the system.
• Lock all doors using the interior power lock switch while the driver or
passenger door is open and then becomes closed.
• Lock the driver door with the key in the key lock cylinder (this will
not however arm the interior motion or vehicle incline sensing
systems or lock the passenger door).

If all the closures (doors, trunk, hood) are closed, the turn signal lamps
will flash once. If any closure is not properly closed the parklamps will
not flash. Note: Locking the driver door with the key does not lock the
passenger door. Use the power door lock control or manually lock the
passenger door to ensure the vehicle is properly secured.
The system will wait 20 seconds after locking before triggering an alarm.
After the 20–second pre-arm phase, the power door unlock control is
disabled (for more information, refer to Power door trim switch inhibit
section earlier in this chapter) to further protect your vehicle.
