    Hello.
    I was wondering if there is any way to have the horn beep when you lock the doors with the FOB. I drove a Dodge minivan for years and the reminder of the beep was a good insurance that I had indeed locked the van.

    The lights on the truck flash but I'm always turning around to make sure that they're flashing and the truck is locked.

    A few times the kids have left a door open, the doors didn't lock and I almost walked away.

    Anybody know of any way to connect the lights and the horn? Thanks

    Sold my truck Jan '13... Still hang around.
    I have this device as well. A note to anybody who buys it:

    Mine was inconsistent when it beeped. The most common 'failure' would be when I tried to lock the door just after parking the car and turning off the engine... but it still worked in that situation sometimes.

    I emailed the guys at moerse lekker and they were very helpful. They even offered to replace it if the tips they gave me didn't work.

    When I went back and double checked the connections I found that the wire tap wasn't making a good connection with the metal in the blinker wire. I ever-so-carefully shaved off a little of the rubber to expose the wire underneath, then lined the wire tap up and clamped it on. It's worked perfectly ever since.

    Just passing along some (hopefully) helpful information.

    i was gonna go with one of those beep confirmations but i just opted to just get an alarm system. i like the alarm system instead because not only because its an alarm and not just a confirmation beeper, but because since i have a DC when i press unlock it unlocks all four on the first press instead of having to press it twice like on the stock FOB.
