Turn off the key-not-in-vehicle beep

Is there any way to shut off that annoying 5 second long beep that happens when you shut all the doors and the key is with you? It's really embarrassing to run into the gas station and instead of a little chirp to remind you that you don't have your keys it's this 5 second long annoying beep. Is there any way to disable this feature?

Really? I thought that was a legal requirement for all of them. It sounds when you leave the engine running and take all the smart keys out.


It does seem like it's a separate horn for that, under the hood near the firewall. I assume that you could just unplug that horn, but I personally think that's a very bad idea.

You run into the gas station with your car running and doors unlocked? :/ That's how your car goes on a trip without you lol. Check the manual? I've never tried to turn it off personally.

You could leave your key fob inside the vehicle. It's beeping because the key left the vehicle while running.

Yeah, might as well give them the whole thing. Bonus points for filling it up first.

In better perspective, say you have a passenger in the car and want to leave the AC on for them, but you exit with the key. Doesn't matter why you exited the car, it really should not beep like this, I agree with the OP. Would love to turn this off.

Would it be possible to replace the OEM buzzer with an aftermarket one that would change the note/length of the sound?

This is many times the reason I leave my car running while I exit as well (AC or heat), whether at the gas station, home or wherever and the little horn makes its sound. However, at least it STOPS! I've heard cars that do not stop making that sound for as long as the key is absent! That's even more crazy!

Now, as joegr mentioned, I'm sure it's a little piezo type buzzer somewhere under the hood and most likely could be simply unplugged. You would still get the visual warning on your dash that the key was missing from inside the car. Legal requirement? I don't think so. More likely it was a move by manufacturers to protect them from lawsuits. Just like commercial trucks with back up beepers. My take anyway.

2014 SXL, only mods are after market rims due to recall.
