    2005 OEM Security system...confused

    Well, I just recently bought my 05 WRX, and when I go to lock/unlock it, I either get just the "sound" of the locks opening or closing OR I get a horn beep if I press "lock" on my key remote a few times, OR when I unlock I get an "electronic beep" that you hear from an aftermarket security system. I guess my question is, how do I get that "electronic beep/chirp" to happen all the time, since I can only assume that is what is activating my alarm.

    Thanks ahead of time

    The horn beeps when locking it only after you do it a few times consecutively, so its not constant.

    As far as I can tell, there's no way to change when it will beep or not beep. Best thing to do might be to call the dealer and speak with a technician.

    Open the drivers side door and hold down the unlock button, that should turn the beep on and off.
    Come to think of it it might be the lock button, so if one doesnt work try the other one...haha

    my '04 would randomly switch between the two options. never was a problem with the system, just wouldn't chirp sometimes.
