there is no sensitivity adjustment or volume adjustment on the factory alarm system and no way to turn the horn 'off'. That being said, you can use the remote to lock the car and arm the system without blowing the horn by pressing the lock button only one time when you lock the car. Pressing it a second time beeps the horn for confirmation. If you don't want the horn to beep, only press the remote one time.

The Horn sounds only the second time you press the lock button to confirm that the vehicle is indeed locked. This is useful if you are carrying multiple passengers and you want to confirm that the doors were all shut when you locked it. If someone did not shut their door completely the lock mechanism will not allow ANY of the doors to lock no matter how many times you push the button.As a general rule of thumb I suggest to my customers that they get into the habit of pressing the button twice in a public place to confirm that the locks did indeed activate. If you are parking somewhere at night or need to be quiet then watch for the indicator lamps to flash when you press the lock button once. If they flash all is well if they do not then again someone has left a door open.Hope this helps.

Default Re: honda alarm issue?

For my 99 Honda Accord LX, it allows me to toggle the alarm confirmation beeps on or "silent" by pressing the OPTION and LOCK buttons on your remote simultaneously for 2 seconds. In the Silent mode, only the lights flash to indicate the alarm is on or off (if you're near the car, you can hear a faint click).

Mine recently started doing the confirmation beeps again suddenly. My guess is that those two keys were pressed for 2 seconds while in my pocket (toggling the confirmation back into "beep mode"). I searched the internet for about 30 minutes trying to find the toggle instructions, as the label with that info had worn off the back of my remote. And, strangely, there was no such information in my Owner's Manual to this effect. I'm putting this info on a sticky note on the Alarm page for future reference.

Anyway, I hope this help. I found your thread while looking for my answer, so figured I'd chime in. If I hadn't found my backup remote (with that handy piece of information not yet worn off), I'd have been hosed.
