This is a discussion on Chirp Gone after accident... within the General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents. forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; So after 7 weeks of not having my car, I finally got it back. Its far from what it was ...
So after 7 weeks of not having my car, I finally got it back. Its far from what it was from before the accident and I have to take it to the shop on Wednesday for a whole mess of problems I have already found after just having it one day.
Anyways, long story short they had to replace the entire wiring harness for the whole car (which I think was just from the Subaru dealership) but now the Chirp when you unlock/lock the car is not there. The car is not in valet mode.
Ive searched the forums and see that it can be the piece in front of the radiator, but since they had to replace the entire wiring could it be something else? Either way I am taking it back -to have them check it out, but is there something I can check?

The chirp is a user-set option. Look on the back of your remote control.

Yea you can set if you want the chirp or not, instructions on back of keyless entry.

The setting on the key fob doesnt work. I know that you can change it on or off. The lights blink to show that it changes to on or off, however the chirp buzzer doesnt work. Anyone else?
same thing happens to me in my 06 wrx. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. Not sure what the problem is.
Same here. It decides to work for a few days, then gives one lowly, sickly chirp and I don't here from it again for a few months.
I'm sure there is a common sense reason for this, but it's just not important enough to me to spend the time figuring it out.
I think I've seen this discussed before. Something to do with the buzzer thing going bad or in your case maybe getting damaged in the accident. I would check to see if it is getting power then go from there. If needed you can buy a replacement from Subaru or go the cheap route with Radio Shack.

As others have mentioned..+1^ prob. 95% of these problems (at least the countless ones that I have seen) are that the vehicle is in "valet mode" or the buzzer is burnt out/blown...I know those "buzzers" can be had new for under $50.00 (of course the shop or insurance should take care of it...lol) If you do decide to inspect the buzzer or whatnot yourself this is what it looks like... http://www.subarupartsforyou.com/cp_...p?partid=15161
since the nice weather is finally among us I tried to take a better look as to why my car wasnt beeping. after i found where it was actually located on my car i played with the wires that connect in to the beeper or buzzer whatever. it seemed to work. it was hit and miss. so next will be getting a better look as to what isnt coming in contact with it to make it work. to get mine to actually make a sound i had to twist the wiring and kept unlocking until i finally heard it make a sound.
blah what a pain
Dremel it apart, sodder the connections better, epoxy the sucker back together and it should last years.
