Title: S-Max 2nd Press Lock Audible Feedback
Post by: tallrob on June 28, 2020, 06:36:20 PM
Fancy name for horn honking when you press the remote lock button twice. It's an option in the Central Configuration menus via Forscan, but selecting it accomplishes nothing. No honk. I though I heard it's not allowed in the EU, but I'm in Switzerland so maybe I wouldn't get in trouble for having it. On sunny days I can't see the flashers blink when the doors lock, so I always need to go back and check. A short honk would be useful.

Any clues to the legality and how to activate?

I used to have that feature on a Saab. It was very handy if I couldn’t find the car in a car park because the remote used to work from miles away.

Honk honk! The car would go.

Here’s hoping a similar feature exists for the MK2 Alhamb.

The answer may be in trying to alter the As-Built settings;

0=disable double honk
1=enable double honk

I'm trying the change on my 2017 S-Max later today

Hi

Unfortunately, I couldn't write the new data, I have a different dongle coming so will try with the new device when it arrives...
