There, I fixed it. Silencing the horn when you lock the car.

    I'm impressed that there's such a lucid menu in the UI. In every car I've owned, it's been an arcane combination of button-presses on the key fob or a setting that only the dealer can change.

    More than once my truck has come back from the dealer with the horn re-enabled. I don't know if it was due to a PCM update or just some kind of twisted policy. Either way I have to do the secret handshake while standing on one leg to get the damned thing off again.

    Every Chrysler I have had (from 1995 to 2013) used the horn to signal when the car locks. That is nothing new.

    A friend had a Patriot that blared the horn -- loudly -- when locking. I never could figure out how to turn it off. Funny though, I was at her apartment once when she went to run an errand while me and her cats stayed behind. A while later she comes back and locks the car, which I could hear from the apartment. And so could the cats, who gathered by the front door and waited for her to appear. They weren't so dumb after all.
