Default Disable delay lock horn

I just traded my 2003 Avalanche for a 2007 Tahoe. How do I disable the horn sounding when I lock the vehicle using the door lock switch? They delay 5 seconds but I don't want the horn sounding. With the AV, the doors would just lock after the 5 second delay without the horn sounding. I went through the DIC options and there didn't seem to be an obivious option.

The Tahoe is a great ride and I'm really enjoying it.

Thanks,

Default RE: Disable delay lock horn

I set my to lock on first press on button and honk on second press. Be aware that if you lock with the rocker switch on the arm rest, the alarm doesn't set. At least that's what the manual seems to say and the way mine works.

Delayed Locking
When locking the doors with the power lock switch and a door or the liftgate is open, the doors will lock five seconds after the last door is closed. You will hear three chimes to signal that the delayed locking feature is in use. Pressing the power lock switch twice or the lock button on the RKE transmitter twice will override the delayed locking feature and immediately lock all the doors. This feature will not operate if the key is in the ignition. You can program this feature using the Driver Information Center (DIC). See DELAY DOOR LOCK under DIC Vehicle Customization


DELAY DOOR LOCK :
This feature allows you to select whether or not the locking of the vehicle's doors and liftgate will be delayed. When locking the doors and liftgate with the power door lock switch and a door or the liftgate is open, this feature will delay locking the doors and liftgate until five seconds after the last door is closed. You will hear three chimes to signal that the delayed locking feature is in use.

The key must be out of the ignition for this feature to work. You can temporarily override delayed locking by pressing the power door lock switch twice or the lock button on the RKE transmitter twice.

Press the customization button until DELAY DOOR LOCK appears on the DIC display.

Press the set/reset button once to access the settings for this feature. Then press the customization button to scroll through the following settings:

OFF:There will be no delayed locking of the vehicle's doors.

ON (default):The doors will not lock until five seconds after the last door or the liftgate is closed.

NO CHANGE:No change will be made to this feature. The current setting will remain. Choose one of the available settings and press the set/reset button while it is displayed on the DIC to select it.

If you use delayed locking, is the alarm set?

Thanks ZX, BUT it doesn't work that way on my truck. I press the door lock and 5 seconds later the doors lock and the horn sounds. Through the DIC I can:

1) Turn off the door lock delay feature,
2) Turn it on,
3) Accept the default, which locks the door and sounds the horn.

I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow to have some paint chips fixed and will ask them.

Thanks for the responses though. I always found the folks on the Alvalanche fan club board very helpful and I think you guys will be very helpful as well.

Default RE: Disable delay lock horn

Although it says you will not recieve feedback if the doors are open and this mainly applies to REMOTE functions, have you tried adjusting the feedback as described here to fix your problem?
REMOTE DOOR LOCK
This feature allows you to select the type of
feedback you will receive when locking the vehicle
with the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.
You will not receive feedback when locking
the vehicle with the RKE transmitter if the doors
are open. See

for more information.
Press the customization button until REMOTE
DOOR LOCK appears on the DIC display. Press
the set/reset button once to access the settings
for this feature. Then press the customization
button to scroll through the following settings:
OFF:
There will be no feedback when you press
the lock button on the RKE transmitter.
LIGHTS ONLY:
The exterior lamps will flash
when you press the lock button on the RKE
transmitter.
HORN ONLY:
The horn will sound on the second
press of the lock button on the RKE transmitter.
HORN & LIGHTS (default):
The exterior lamps will
flash when you press the lock button on the RKE
transmitter, and the horn will sound when the lock
button is pressed again within five seconds of the
previous command.
NO CHANGE:
No change will be made to this
feature. The current setting will remain.
Choose one of the available settings and press
the set/reset button while it is displayed on the DIC
