Horn sound when locking/unlocking

I've read in the manuals that you can disable the horn sounding when you lock and unlock the car... my problem is that I want a sound, but my UK grand cherokee doesn't have any menu in the EVIC to set a sound... was this removed from UK cars? If so, any ideas on the best way to get a sound when locking and unlocking?

Any advice gratefully recieved!

Sam

Re: Horn sound when locking/unlocking

Can't shed any light on this matter but I'd like mine to 'chirp' when locking/unlocking too.

Hopefully its possible...

Re: Horn sound when locking/unlocking

just an option i you cant get the EVIC to apply the beep...

i read on wjjeeps that you can replace them easily.

gl though

The EVIC module assembly cannot be repaired, and is available for service only as a unit.


Vehicles with the basic EVIC module can be easily upgraded No rewiring or other modifications are required when exchanging overhead consoles and EVIC's between Grand Cherokee WJ models (1999-2004).
also i dont know if you have TPMS but if you dont...

to add the Homelink universal garage door transmitter and/or the Tire Pressure Monitor system (TPMS) by simply exchanging modules.
The TPMS requires the installation of 5 valve stem/wheel transmitters in addition to the module.
