car not beeping when locking doors consistently

So as the title says...When I lock my car with 2 presses on the key fob, it is no longer beeping consistently. Sometimes it will beep and sometimes it wont. I make sure all the doors are closed and it still wont beep.

How often do you use your horn? A few of us have had our horns stop working because of corrosion in the connector.

very rarely do i use my horn, other than when im double clicking the fob to lock it..which is fairly regular. On a side not, today my beep is working with the double touch. So its in and out...any tsb or anything about this? I feel like having a horn not working is somewhat of a hazard.

Could it be the door closed sensor? I know for some cars the double tap horn doesn't work if the hood or any door's sensor is not working or not reporting door closed even if the door is physically closed.

Yes, I think it could be that as well.

Try it. If one door is not closed correctly, or not closed at all, it'll double beep a lot slower. You know something is wrong in this case. It did happen 2 or 3 times to me.

I also suggest like others said, check the horn and the connector first. Since your car is out of the warranty, you may want to check what it is considered easy before going to the dealer.

Do you have any Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) ?

Have you been to your dealer to have this looked into? Please let me know, along with your mileage. I'll see how I can best assist.

Could be the car is not actually locking. My 06 had a intermittent issue with the driver side lock not pulling. Lubing it fixed it.
