Default Reduce horn volume when locking with remote?

Does anyone know a way to reduce the volume of the horn that chirps
when locking a 2005 Honda Odysey? First lock is silent, but horn on
the second is too loud. It is very annoying and draws attention when
locking the car at night.

The solution is to press the lock button only once, as this should lock all
the doors.

That's quite true but has anyone else noticed (as I have with my 2006
Accord EX) that if you close the door and give the key fob a QUICK
double press, if you get the horn toot it is substantially more quiet
than if you walk away from the car, push the locking button, pause, then
hit it a second time?

I suspect that the volume level Todd's looking for is that which I've
described above. Not truly a "chirp" but damn close to it.

So don't hit the button the second time. The locks and alarm activate
on the first push of the button. Hitting it a second time gives the
chirp for verification only.

Could that be because in the first instance you are standing next to the
car, and on the second instance, you are in front of it, where the horns
are pointed?

There is no volume difference.

No, it's because it IS softer in that instance - when I'm standing right
next to the car vs. walking away BEHIND it several car lengths away<g>

Pardon me, it may be anecdotal only, but there IS a difference under the
circumstances described above.

I guess I can't argue about your instance, but my 06 civic Si has no
difference, nor does a friend's 06 Accord. Tested his today just to
make sure nothing was different than I was spouting off... ;-)

I actually do the "quick double tap"all the time(07 Accord)
Works about 75 % of the time for me.
Kinda a little challenge(yawn):-)
