    I just noticed that when I unlock my car it flashes and beeps but when I lock the car it does not beep or flash like when I bought the car. it used to flash and beep when I would lock/unlock but it stopped when I lock it now and I would like to have it flash and beep for both. Please help.

    Just to add more information. I added sound deadening on the doors today and put everything back together. Since it’s dark and I can’t work on it right now my guess is that I didn’t put the door latch and lock back together properly and so the vehicle doesn’t think it’s being locked all the way. I will update tomorrow once I have successfully put it back together and the latch and lock work smoothly

    One of your doors is ajar.

    Edit: Or the truck thinks it is.

    I thought so too. It’s weird though because it’s not making the obnoxious beep like if I tried to lock it with a door open.

    I could be wrong but you might have accidentally hit a sequence on your keypad to bypass the beep/ light flash. Check the owners manual. I believe there is a way to shut all of that off or bring it back pretty easily.

    I just went outside and checked the door in question and it is not locking when the other doors lock and the handle is sticky. I will take it back apart in the morning and make sure everything is smooth again. If that doesn’t work I will follow the videos steps

    Update!! It was in fact the door linkage not being properly set causing the latch to not engage I.e. car wouldn’t fully lock unlock

    Lucky it didn't come detached after you closed the door!

    Yeah very true. It was a little hard to open but it worked out and now everything works.
