2 seconds.

When the hazard indicator mode is set,
the hazard indicator flashes 3 times.

flashes once and the horn chirps once.

Many thanks for that honky tip. Worked perfectly. Couldn't stand that horn.

You could also just touch the door handle after closing the door. Works like a charm.

I actually prefer using the button on the door handle. Keeps me from fishing my key out of my pocket, briefcase, etc. I know... just pure lazy. :rolleyes:

Right! There's no practical need to remove the key from your pocket. Defeats the purpose of the wireless "intelligent" key. But, to each his own. :)

Not sure if I've mentioned this on this forum or not but we decided to go completely keyless in the house. Keys never leave my pocket or my wife's purse.

Keyless entry and ignition on our cars, keypad on the garage overhead doors and a schlage keyless deadbolt going from the garage to the house. Just use a keypad, enter a code quickly and we're in.

I love not having to take my keys out for anything. Now I just need to get my office door on a keypad lock and I'm all set!

The other way to do it is to go into the Vehicle menu under Settings and change the "Answer Back Horn" setting from convenience to Security.

We are doing the same. Getting couple of these delivered tomorrow and will be installing them over the weekend.

So I did this and it worked. Only problem is that the "chirp" that I used to get when I locked the doors by touching the door handle is now gone. I've messed with the options from both the horn mode and car settings menu to no avail. Can anyone help me with getting that chirp sound back?

Right now, I've only been able to get either the beep sound, or hazard lights confirmation.

Am I missing something here? Why not just lock the car from the door on the inside, as you depart?
There is a risk that you press the interior lock button, shut the door, and walk away leaving the keys in the car. That's why I don't do it. Not sure if the Q50 will prevent that scenario like it does when it will prevent you from shutting trunk when key is in trunk, etc.

It's probably best practice to lock from outside, however unlikely the possibility that the safeties fail.

The system is designed so that if you leave the keys in the car and use the button on the door handle, that the doors will not lock and you'll get warning beeps that you left your keys. Only way to lock yourself out is by hitting the interior switch, but I rarely see anyone doing that anymore.

Well, I learned something. I always thought that those "chirps" were so that blind drivers would get a confirmation that the vehicle is locked. Sighted drivers of course can get a confirmation from the flashing lights.

Whenever I hear those beeps I say "What?". Very annoying. I wish blind people would just quit driving.
