Question Can you disable the horn chip when using remote starter?

I live in a small apartment complex, and often leave early in the morning. When I remote start the Jeep it honks twice, then starts. Is there a way to disable this feature? I can't find anything in the manual. On my parent's GM vehicles (yes, I know), you can remove a fuse, re-program different things and plug the fuses back in.

Is there a way to stop the honking before the starting?

Thanks guys!

Yea...me too...I scrolled through the EVIC the other day and didn't see anything remotely tied to that. Haven't really looked in the manual yet.

I bet there isn't....

I thought there was in the EVIC? Isn't there a setting of "Sound Horn With Lock?"?

But did you try changing that setting to see if it also had an effect on remote start?

I ask because, when you perform a remote start using the factory system two signals are sent to the vehicle. The first is to lock the vehicle. The second is to start the engine.

If that setting doesn't change it then no, there is no way to disable the beep unless possibly using StarScan.

Wouldn't it send an unlock code, which on mine does not honk even though it does honk when I lock the vehicle.

I would think it would send the lock command so your vehicle is sitting unlocked and running.

Maybe I'm dense, but how would sending the Lock command, leave your vehicle sitting unlocked?

I don't have remote start on this vehicle, When you remotely start yours, does it lock the doors, or unlock them?

Yes, you're right. I just disabled the "sound horn with lock" feature to test it out, and the Jeep doesn't beep twice now when starting. (In the manual it says press the lock button first, then the start button twice, which is stupid cause it works without pressing lock since the start command locks the vehicle before starting it anyway).

Only downside, is that it doesn't honk to let me know the car is locked when I leave the vehicle. I have to rely on hearing the doors lock to know it worked. Oh well, it's a Jeep afterall and not a Lexus.

Thanks all!

I have remore start (added it myself) and the two signals do not lock the door.

All of the other security features like key in run position, depressed brake and putting in gear are to prevent someone from taking your running vehicle. You can start the XK while unlocked and with the windows down and unless they have a key they cannot take your vehicle.
