Still lovin' my new gt but gotta improve the horn when locking. My wife makes a sour face whenever I double click the lock. Any suggestions? Replace the factory or add a second that would make it dual tone?

Eta: experimenting - horn is different when double click the key fob. The actual horn sounds ok. The lock sound is weak. Maybe I can tap the lock sound to the main horn

Elantra history:
02 GT loaded until Feb07 - a great car, only reason for sale was relocation Canada to US
Sep08 bought a very used 04 GLS - a fine daily driver but bare bones - made us miss the GT, traded it for 4Runner within a year
Feb14 traded 07 Acura TLs for new 14 Elantra GT - very pleased so far - fun to drive, lots of features AND economical!

Yes the horn is different from the locking system. When locking it should beep.

It sure is. What I did was to splice the alarm horn (it came off a Viper system) from my old car to the existing alarm horn located on the passenger side of the engine bay. Arming chirp now doesn't sound like a dying goat.

It seems the alarm sound is a common complaint. Thankfully the tech system has a chirp so I didn't have to worry about changing it out. Nothing more embarassing than locking your sweet looking ride and having an embarassing beep!

The horn on the Touring is embarrassing.

or alternatively, you can go through the vehichle settings between your gauges and turn off the horn recognition, which is what I did lol. but that viper alarm chirp sounds like a good idea to me.
