    You guys will probably flame me for whining about this but WHY do you need this? Aren't the flashing lights enough? The reason I say this is there is a guy in my complex that is constantly locking/unlocking his doors in the middle of the night and his truck blows a pretty loud horn everytime and it's totally inconsiderate. There are others with similar systems and they are so annoying in a small condominium complex. So although I'm sure this won't mean much maybe think twice before going audible especially with horns. Now you hear the sound of me getting off my soapbox.

    i don't want my horn to honk, i think those systems are way too loud and obnoxious. i just want a small chirp like my buddy's 07 tundra is all

    I can't say I like the chirping ones much either but at least a man can sleep through them. Still not sure why the lights aren't enough??

    i just dont like having to look at it everytime i lock it, now granted i do stare at it quite a bit anyway but this will be something to do when i'm very bored and i have some time and money

    Sometimes when walking away from a sideview of my truck I want to confirm I locked it and you can't always see the lights flash from the side. Minor thing but would be nice to have a chirp like my Rav-4 did.

    I love the fact that my truck does not beep the horn when locking or unlocking, a nice little flash of the lights is fine with me. :p

    It is not the obnoxious horn beeping with this mod, it is a stock sounding buzzer.

    Maybe you could wire in a Piezo alarm to the lock assembly's activation wiring so that when the lock activates, the buzzer goes off.


    On one of my motorcycle forums, they used the piezo alarms as a turn signal reminder. I've never heard one so I'm not sure if they'd be loud enough to hear through the door but it's cheap enough to check out.

    Already thought of this and, yes, it could be done but you would need 2 buzzers. The voltage gets reversed to the solenoid for locking versus unlocking. The piezo's are polarity specific. A non-specific buzzer would probably work but I am done (at least for now) with this one, moving on to other mods and such. I like it and it works for me. For those rare occaisions when I need the 4-ways, I have the inline switch to kill the beep.

    Anyone have any instructions on programming the basic open/lock keyless entry remote so ALL the doors unlock at one time? I have tried two different sets of instructions and neither seems to work. It's an 08 Tacoma

    Yes.


    I know the dealer can do it, but I have also heard that some will charge you too.

    why not just hit it twice? very simple fix... there may be occasions where u dont want them to all open on the first click...neighborhoods, parking lots, etc

    No offense dbbd1, but that just seems super lazy. Like an option request for the Ridgeline.

    I guess that is why you posted twice? To each his own. And, for the record, I was responding to another post, not necessarily requesting on my own behalf.
