I thought it was strange not hear a small noise (beep or chirp) when activating the alarm on my car. All I see are the blinkers flash three times in a row to verify that it has been activated. Kind of annoying to have to wait and stare at the lights to see if you have activated it. I really hate this feature, my Land Rover Discovery has the same problem. I remember when I had a BMW and I could quickly walk away from the car, hold the lock/alarm remote over my shoulder, here the beep to verify it has been activated, and stuff the keys in my pocket. Is there a way to change this feature? And if so, can it be done by me and not go through the hassle of bringing it to the dealership?
