    Cool It ONLY happened ONCE !

    FYI:
    On my 2005 STS if I got out the car, with engine running,
    with FOB in pocket,door shut,the car would 3 beep .
    On my 2006 STS,IF I get out of car, with FOB in pocket,
    door shut,NO beeps !
    ONCE, I got of car, like regular, with Engine OFF,
    with FOB in pocket, with door shut,
    and car 3 beeped ,again, 3 beeped,
    and kept on, until I hit the Lock or Unlock,
    don't remember. But it only happened,ONCE.
    Hopefully Never again.

    Check your lock personalizations.

    Re: It ONLY happened ONCE !

    I don't remember an option where the car locks while the engine is running if the fob leaves the car. I could be wrong.

    I'm pretty sure there's no option where the horn will continue to go off over and over if you leave the fob in the car. Just 3 horn sounds. I don't think I'm wrong on that one.

    Clearly some kind of glitch. Oh well. See what happens.

    Mine only beeps 3 times with fob in the car, engine off...

    No beep if left running with fob in the car...

    Locks when running with fob away from the car.

    Leave the extra fob somewhere else in the car??

    Nice discovery for after a carwash & drying... Put the car in Accessory Mode & it won't chime while listening to the radio with the doors open!

    Re: It ONLY happened ONCE !

    WHAT!? Driver's door is the only door that's supposed to chime. Acc mode and your driver's door is open with no chime? Lucky. Something must be wrong though.

    Re: It ONLY happened ONCE !

    OK, I couldn't find this in the owners manual, but it is an extension of Accessory Mode where all the cars systems are powered. Perhaps it is a diagnostic mode that a member with a shop manual or other resources can find more details. Here's how I use it:

    1. Stop the engine normally.
    2. Press & hold the bottom of the Start/ACC button for about five seconds.
    3. All the cars systems including HVAC and all the instrument displays will come on.
    4. I open all the doors, turn up the radio & dry the car or whatever I want to do while enjoying the radio without a single chime.
    5. So far, I've never had RAP shut anything off, but maybe I haven't waited long enough.

    I think that's as designed. Both my 2006 and my wife's 2007 do this. Does anyone's STS not work this way?

    Yes that's called "on". There's acc, on, and start. It's basically as if your car was running minus the engine. I guess I could just do that.
