Default Remote Start Honks

Hello,

I just got a DEI Automate 5304A remote starter with an FLCAN and a 556U Immobilizer interface installed on my '13 wrx. Although everything is working fine, when I press the remote start button, it will honk and then start.

I did not find anything in the manual for the alarm to disable this honk, so I was wondering if any of you guys experienced this honk right before the car is about to remotely start. To make things a little bit more complicated, the honking is not consistent. It seems to only do the honk when the car has been sitting for a while. If I start the car, turn off, then start it again, the car won't honk.

Your best bet is to bring it back to where you had it installed and have them fix it. It should just be a programming option, but by doing anything to it yourself you can void the warranty on the unit and will not be able to have any real issues fixed in the future.

This is what I was planning, but I won't be able to go to them til the weekend. I was just hoping there was a quick fix that I could've done myself.

As long as they did not Bitwriter lock the unit (some places do that specifically so you can't change the settings), you can do it yourself but it can be a bit tricky if you have never done it before. It's not rocket science by any means, but you have to make sure to take your time. If you change the wrong option, it could lead to multiple other issues. If you can live with it til you can get it in there then I would. Otherwise do a quick search on google for the installation manual for that and it should give you the programming instructions.

Also interested in this. I thought it was because the RS requires me to click it twice which I assume locked the doors twice causing the honk.

But when I disabled honk upon locking, it still honked, even though it didn't when I used just the standard fob to lock the car. I wish I had a solution, my neighbors hearing my honk at 5a can't be good.

There is typically a setting on when the horn honks. Usually its either on double lock, lock and unlock, or lock, unlock, and start. But it all depends on what unit is installed.

The FLCAN has its own setting that will honk the horn. They have to reflash the flcan and tell it not to do so.
