    Security Alarm

    I got a 1999 Cadillac Catera when I bought my car about 3 months ago I notice sometimes you have to be really close to car to unlock it. Do the cat's have a really crappy low range unlock/lock system or is it just my battery. Also is there a way I can get the horn to beep when I lock and unlock car?

    Thank you

    I think the range is only 30 feet. If it doesn't work in that range u probably need a new battery. As far as the horn beep mine doesn't either haven't look in to it yet

    I read in the factory service manual that it had to programmed from the beginning. the first owner would have had the opportunity only I think. It says " when lock button is depressed once one transmitter and body control module (BCM )then receives a signal with valid vehicle access code the following events will occur.
    all doors and fuel door lock
    Interior lights are immediately turned off
    parking lights will flash once
    horn will chirp.(if selected in personalization feature).
    Content theft deterrent (CTS) will arm.
