    Lock Doors - No Beep - This seems to work

    I know this sounds crazy, but I have done this twice in the last 2 days. I think I have the steps down correctly.

    1. Drive the car, park it, turn off the engine
    2. Get out of the car and close the driver side door.
    3. Go to the passenger side door - Not sure if getting to the door has to be done slowly - like 5 seconds
    4. Open the passenger side door - not sure if the door has to remain open for a few seconds
    5. With the passenger side door still open, press the lock door key fob button (middle one) twice quickly - Not sure if you need the two or 1 will do
    6. Close the passenger side door - the little yellow light on the front right panel should blink but NO BEEP
    7. Test the passenger side door and it should be locked. Also, check the driver side door and should be locked too.

    Note: I have a Pop cabrio, so not sure if this is model specific. I have noticed the behavior lately because I am keeping my computer bag on the passenger's side, vs in the trunk. With snow dirtied streets, the back hatch is pretty messy. Today, I tried to watch closely on the steps I was taking. Can anyone else try this on your Fiat? What did you find? Any improvements you found in the steps?

    Ciao

    That makes sense. The beep is to confirm that the car is secure; you locked the car while one door was open, so even though all the locks were switched "on" the car wasn't secure - it didn't beep. When you closed it, since all the doors were locked, it was then all locked up. I'm actually surprised the light flashed because in all cars I've owned, the car's alarm didn't even acknowledge that under this circumstance the car was actually secure.

    If, after closing the passenger door, you were to press the lock button, I would expect the car to beep. But at the point you close the door you're not asking the car to confirm that it's secure, and when you *did* ask it to confirm (i.e., click the button on the fob), it wasn't secure so it didn't tell you it was.

    I haven't confirmed that my car behaves as you describe, but I would expect it does since everything other than the flashing right panel light is exactly the standard behavior for alarmed keyless entry cars.

    I confirmed that my sport acts just the same as you describe - it's expected behavior except for the little light flash when closing the passenger door, it's a pleasant surprise that the alarm seems to be aware enough to understand that the car is now in a secured state. But then, given the surprisingly intelligent behavior of the temporary hatch unlock, I suppose it should be expected - the car's electronics have a high level of awareness of the car's state, I think.

    Duh. I just learned you can also avoid the beep, by locking the car the old fashioned way...
    Put the key in the driver's door handle and twist. Car does not beep and does lock.

    I often set the alarm with the doors open. The reason is because I have kids unloading their crap and I can't trus them to lock it after they are done. When they do close the doors and/or hatch the car flashes but doesn't beep.

    On a side note, if your kid tries to open the door and it locked the car will TELL you very persistantly that someone tried to break in, until you turn the ignition off. The first time it happened I had to call the studio from the car because I was afraid the engine may cut out or something.

    I just wish they would program the option of the horn beep into the car's software. In Europe it is a menu selection. In many of the old cities it is illegal for horn beeps in some city centers. There is no reason why they can't provide this in a flash update.

    This issue has been brought up before many times;

    The reason it beeps is to verify that all the doors are ALL locked.

    If there is no beep, there is no guarantee the doors are locked; the remote may be not working, or if one of the doors or trunk is not closed,
    there will be no beep. or if your a distance a way from the car theres no guarantee the remote will work from that distance.
    Again, if you here the beep, then your car is secure; No beep, Not secure.
    Lights do blink , however during the day , or from a distance its not easy to see;
    Unless your deaf, a beep cannot be missed.

    Doodles,

    The problem I have with this alarm is that it lacks certain features most basic alarms have. I have a Sport with the Safety/Convenience & Safety/Sound packages. For what I paid this alarm is a joke. All it does is arm/disarm the car by locking/unlocking the doors, nothing else. There is no flashing LED light in the dashboard telling you and potential thieves that the car is armed. There is no silent mode which is useful at night time so you don't disturb the neighbors with the alarm beep. As far as the blinking lights go, I can see them just fine. Can you imagine if everyone in your block had this type of alarm? All you'd hear is beep, beep, beep constantly. It is irritating. FIAT should upgrade this alarm so that a flashing light is displayed in the EVIC telling you the car is armed and also put in a silent mode. Best regards.

    Ciao,
    John
