Locking my jeep

I have been having a new problem just checking to see if anyone else is having the same problem. The last few weeks I have had to hit my lock button on the door handle 2 sometimes 3 times before it will lock. Now today I locked the car and it locked but then the horn honked 3 times and the car unlocked so I had to go lock it again. Is this just mine or has anyone ever seen this before? If so were you able to get it fixed. I know that if I take my devil car in it will just stop doing it so they will not do anything to fix it.

Re: Locking my jeep

Mine doesn't lock sometimes after 2-3 pushes and just blinks the lights, very frustrating. I'm taking it to the dealer on Monday to have it checked out along with some other issues.

Re: Locking my jeep

Once in a while, I'll have to push the handle button a couple of times to lock it also. But I don't see the lights flash or anything. It's like I didn't push it hard enough.

So when I don't hear the locks, lock. I'll look right at the button and push. And then it locks like it should....

Re: Locking my jeep

Only the button on the passenger door is "stubborn" in that way on my MY12...takes three pushes. The other two (driver door and rear lift-gate) all take only one push. Heck, the driver door button can be hit with my elbow and it works.

Re: Locking my jeep

The triple honking and then unlocking problem has happened to me a few times as well and a couple others members here. Ghosts in the machine, I guess.

Re: Locking my jeep

I don't own a GC but I recall reading somewhere (no guarantee it was for jeeps) that if you left a key fob in the vehicle and tried to lock it it would sound the horn a few times and then unlock. Now that I think about it that may be ram trucks.

Re: Locking my jeep

The only time I have a problem like this is when the key is in the same pocket as my cell phone

Re: Locking my jeep

Honk, honk, honk means the vehicle thinks the key fob is inside the vehicle. Sometimes the proximity sensor thinks it is inside for whatever reason. My 2011 did that about every three months or so. No biggie except make sure the doors are locked after getting the triple horn warning.

Re: Locking my jeep

I just dropped mine off at the dealer for a list of issues. I'll report back what they find on the locking.

Re: Locking my jeep

I am just so frustrated with all the glitches that this car has. Can't get anything fixed because they can't repeat the problems, makes the warranty basically useless.

Re: Locking my jeep

I was able to show them the flashing, well the Service advisor not the tech. We'll see what happens. I hear you in the issues, I told them I smelled an oil burning smell 2 weeks ago when they had it and they couldn't see anything leaking. They changed the cabin filter and was done with it. On Saturday I noticed my motor smoking heavily and was able to video it. There is ps fluid missing after they topped it off 2 weeks ago. They're checking the ps system today.

Re: Locking my jeep

The burning oil smell is coming from melting carpet down by the gas pedal it is laying on the heater core line coming through the fire wall. They have to put something to stand it off so it doesn't touch and the smell will stop.
