    Also note: if you have the key on you, get out of the vehicle and leave the drivers door open, then hop back in and close the door, the vehicle will honk. The vehicle is programmed with a simple order of events operation, and according to it, the key never left the car and you did. The car doesn't actually know when you are in the seat with the key aside from when it check upon ignition start and at certain intervals set after ignition start.
    I noticed this right away, and any time i get out and back in again, i just close the driver door when i get out, and open it to get in again and it completes the order of events for it to not give a horn warning.
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!

    Now THAT'S helpful! At least I can understand what"s happening and how to deal with it. I'm not someone who leaves/loses keys. I tend to be very consistent in how I do things. I may reelect the warning and know how to avoid unintentional alarms. Thanks Captain.

    Im glad somebody could shine some light to help you out because that's all we are trying to do but I thought you would've tried leaving the vehicle on or in acc mode already...
