An excellent question since I just updated the BCM a couple of days ago.

Before: Horn would beep if car was already locked. The problem was that there was no delay. In other words, if you locked the car (by touching the black square) and immediately (and often inadvertently) touched the black square again, the horn would beep.

Now: The horn does not sound and there is a delay (for confirmation) if the car is already locked.

For confirmation, I normally use the lamp on the mirror when locking the car.

I like the fact that the horn is no longer used. I don't like hearing or making unnecessary noise.
(why do I need to know that my neighbor just locked his car?)
