Hi all,

Does anybody know if the double horn sound that the Zoe does when it's locked can be removed?
I generally lock it by walking away from it so I'm not sure whether the horn also goes off when pressing the lock button on the key.

Thanks!

If you press the keyfob button or press the Black button on the door handle there is no beep.

You can hear it locking when you walk 3m away from it, just like when you press the button on the remote plus the added horn sound plus the lights. I can't see why not?

Passionately agree. I hate audio-polluting the neighbourhood, both with the silly ICE imitation (can we make things quieter please??) as well as with the anti-social middle-of-the-night whoop-whoop's. Therefor the fuse-pull

On Alfas this is a common hack, you put the alarm on Dutch settings. Perhaps this is something the CanZe guys Dan help with?
I'd still like it to auto lock as I walk away, without the annoying beep, but I don't want to lose the ped warning horn.

unfortunately, for us LX owners, and i think all models as well, this sound is the only sound you can get without changing out the horn. its either off or that sound. and i only leave it on, so when i m around a corner i can hear it lock. otherwise, i only hit the lock once when im close and here the locks lock.

i think someone did a DIY for a horn change, if you're interested. http://bit.ly/2obFLAv

The fuse for the "whoop whoop" sound AND the pedestrian horn (so not the traffic horn) is called F16. It is a 10 amp fuse in the fusebox in the cabin, fourth column, third row from below.
Took the fuse off and now it seems the unlock button on door handle stopped working too. Haven't tried whether it is really behind the same fuse. Though it's much less inconvenient to unlock doors from remote than it would be to turn off the pedestrian lure sound every time the car is started..
